I found a play pen on Craigslist I'm just waiting to hear back. She likes being carried luckily so I've just been carrying her around the house and outside when she needs to go but she's only a year old and she gets restless.

I wish she understood that she just has to be be bored for a few weeks and then she can run like crazy!

I know like I said I feel your pain...my Lola was 5/6 months old when she broke her leg....she didn't like to be kept still at all...she also loved and still loves to be held so when we were holding her she was good...But no matter how many were helping me there were times she had to go in the playpen...she freaked alot in those 4 weeks...she hated to be kept still...she cried and would jump all over...I worried she was going to rebreak her healing leg...There was alot of stress in my household during those 4 weeks...but like I said we managed and all is well now..Just hold on to that fact...a few weeks and it will be all back to normal...

As someone mentioned earlier I similarly had to resort to using a sticky bandaid but I was so worried about pulling out fur later. I would recommend making some kind of makeshift sling out of soft fabric. The onesie idea is great if it'll fit her cast.
