the vet came out for my cat - will they not do this?

hope everything is ok x

cozietoesie Wed 23-Oct-13 19:40:47

Oh my. Have you no one you can call to help or to look after LO?

theboutiquemummy Wed 23-Oct-13 19:49:14

We live in the sticks it cuts down travelling time if we meet them at the surgery because she has to travel in

My family are ages away hmm

hugoagogo Wed 23-Oct-13 19:53:35

Will a taxi take the cat to the vet? (in his travel box obviously)

out2lunch Wed 23-Oct-13 19:55:35

yy he needs to get to the vet somehow.must be awful for you. no neighbour to sit in with dd?

cozietoesie Wed 23-Oct-13 20:07:37

Get a taxi and take LO with you then. (Unless you can raise a neighbour who would sit.) I've never had a refusal from a taxi to take a cat in its box. You need to get hm vet attention in some way.

Did you get it sorted?

issey6cats Wed 23-Oct-13 20:38:58

Here's a hand. Hope you manage to get some help.

They think he's twisted his spine he's been given pain killers so he can rest

out2lunch Wed 23-Oct-13 22:11:19

cozietoesie Wed 23-Oct-13 22:23:02

Poor lad. Did they keep him in?

I really hope he's going to be okay. Sending good thoughts your way.

How is he now?

theboutiquemummy Thu 24-Oct-13 19:44:16

Just a quick update he has responded to the medication so he's allowed to come home n rest he is currently snuggled up warm by the fire he's not himself but at least he's home n he's tried to eat some of his tuna

Thank you for last night he like family to us

cozietoesie Thu 24-Oct-13 19:45:20

Glad he's better. Is he to see the vet again soon?

hugoagogo Thu 24-Oct-13 19:55:42

I am pleased to hear he is doing a bit better.

DulcetMoans Thu 24-Oct-13 20:36:47

Oh so pleased to hear hes come home. I came to this thread a bit late but happy to see a positive outcome. Cuddle him lots - but gently!

out2lunch Fri 25-Oct-13 00:25:17

good news xx

theboutiquemummy Fri 25-Oct-13 11:24:33

We have to go back to the vet on Monday but he's eaten again this morning he's mewing but still no purring yet hmm

cozietoesie Fri 25-Oct-13 12:36:50

That doesn't sound too bad. I wouldn't worry about the lack of pleasure purr - even if he's a purry cat (and not all are) he may just not be feeling quite top notch enough to purr.

DidoTheDodo Sat 26-Oct-13 15:14:56

Continuing catty-vibes for your cat (And you too, of course!). Hope he's soon feeling much more like himself.

theboutiquemummy Tue 29-Oct-13 08:50:17

He's fussed for food this morning and eaten all of it but he's still not right back to the vets again on Thursday morning

He's also poked noses with the dog which is a good sign

How's everyone else doing
