"This Could Only Happen to Me."

I think I broke my little toe.

On a cat.

Before you go thinking I somehow drop-kicked a cat, let me just say, no cats were hurt in the breaking of my toe.

Yesterday morning I was walking down the hall towards my bedroom. Stepped into the bedroom - suddenly little Hazel came zooming by me and did that cat-thing where they crouch and then leap. She did this just as I was moving my left foot forward.

I still don't understand how this is at all possible, but apparently just as she did her crouch thing, my little toe connected with the bone in her backwards-knee position...is any of this making sense?

Anyway - she didn't seem to feel anything, and has acted perfectly normal ever since. In that 8-month old kitten perfectly normal way...leaping, flying around corners, nosing into things she shouldn't.

Meanwhile my little toe has been a deep dark purplish-red for over 24 hours and is sore to the touch. I'm just guessing but I think it's broken.

This could only happen to me.

Yep, sounds broken to me. How do I know? Well, I broke my foot and it turned that deep purple color and couldn't stand to touch it. They do put casts on broken feet, but I don't think they do that for broken toes. I know that is painful, makes me hurt to think about it.
