The Doc's Office and mine were situated quite close together in town so most days we would meet up for lunch . This particular day was no different and having had lunch we were sauntering along the High Street when I noticed that he was limping. On inquiring what was wrong I was told "Yes its these shoes. When ever I wear them the right one is a bit tight". I asked had he checked if there was anything in it and was told he had and he couldn't see what was wrong.
Later that evening I had a good look at the said shoe and put my hand into the toe to see if I could stretch the leather a bit. On doing so I felt a bit of rough leather and managed to pull on it and it felt like a piece of string so I gave it a good tug and out popped this object!!!!!!!
I have placed against a 50p piece for comparison.
Now heres the crux of the tail my cats do not have and never have had furry mice to play with. So where did this little chap come from?
We had been to visit Fluff and VUH about 6 weeks previously and Fluff's cats(that she had at the time) did have furry mice to play with. Loved them in fact! On inquiring Fluff confirmed that they were indeed one mouse down but she had thought it was around somewhere and would come to light in due course from whence it had been hidden. The Doc had been wearing these shoes!
Can only assume that said mouse got chucked in his shoe during play and come home time The Doc had put his shoe back on without realising and pushed the mouse down into the toe. Hence the Limp.
