My cat is trying to kill me.
Or at least injure me to the point of distraction. As cats do, he decided that he needed to follow me into the kitchen last night for a soda and stick his head in the refrigerator to make sure nothing in there was going to kill me. Then when I was walking back into the bedroom, he of course had to run ahead to make sure nothing had arrived there in the approximately 30 seconds since we left it that might kill me. In the process of galloping ahead of me, he somehow managed to get a back paw in between the 4th and 5th toes on my left foot. My poor little toe, in response, bent in a way small toes are not meant to bend. Not long thereafter, it was observed to be turning a lurid purple color, and it's still that color now, more than 24 hours later. It's probably broken, but a doctor would only charge me a couple hundred bucks to confirm that, since they can't exactly put a cast on it or anything, so I'm not going to bother. It's swollen, but it's not bending weird or anything (not like it can inside my shoe anyway), so I'm trying not to walk too much, and when I do I'm limping. Stairs are the only real issue, and it only took me a couple of steps each way to figure out how to handle those, so I'm sure I'll be all right. It's only a toe.
