ARGH!!! I think I've killed Terence!! He was sitting on a different window to normal, and I didn't see him when I shut it to go out...the edge of the window caught one of his arms and it's crushed and I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO!!!

So this is a MAJOR plea to ANYONE that knows if a) he's going to die b) if there's anything I can do to help him!

Seeing as I'm UTTERLY useless with all things "green", I've no idea where to start!! I've had Terence for over 2 years and have become VERY attached to him. I would be mortified if he died! So, anyone, anywhere...if you've got any ideas on how I can help him, please please PLEASE let me know!

"Because of the plants' high water-retention ability, detached parts of the plant can survive for long periods and are able to grow new roots anywhere on the plant body."

From the super reliable source which is Wikipedia. As an aside, I think Cacti are hardy plants, he may just survive!

His arm???
Take a deep breath. Terence will survive. He may have a scar but that's something you can both live with.
(This is excellent prep for you for parenthood.)

When I saw that on Facebook, I thought it was way more dire! He may be an amputee, but with a little TLC, I'm sure he will end up okay.

Think of it as giving Terrence some air to breathe.

Reeny - I'm pretty sure he will too. He's a hardy little guy!

Beth - Wise words Beth, as usual. So much so that it inspired a post!

Pointful - It WAS dire! At the time anyway!

Psychgrad - That's one way of putting it. Although I'm sure that he'll prefer me to check where he is the next time I go shutting windows!
