My poor cat

We have a lovely 7year old cat, she has had it a bit rough, lost her tail a long time ago. She is a right madam, does as she pleases (open cat flap) and was aware that something was going on when I got increasingly more pregnant, the night I gave birth she bought in 5 presents (mice) for her Daddy! We came home the next day and she was getting really brave getting closer to the little moving bundle. We went to bed and at about 5am heard her shoot though the cat flap making a hell of a noise.
Poor thing had been used as a chew toy for the local squatters and their dogs. She was covered in dog slobber, bruised ribs, bite to leg, all her claws where shredded or missing (she had run for her life sad. She was given pain killers, stitches, etc.
My parents took her the 2 hour drive home and are looking after her, she is quite happy, but would like to go out sad. We went to visit and she had the right hump with her Daddy (not me so much) and to scared to come near 3month old.
The squatters have been evicted and we want to bring her home smile. Ant suggestions to make this easier for her? What must she think of us?

Feliway spray is good for calming cats. It is a pheremone [sp?] I think and I have used it in cat boxes and around the cat flap for nervous types. You can get it from vets.
Or a piece of 'daddy's' clothing in cat box for travelling home.
I had a cat who disappeared for a few days and came home in a state. He just wanted to sit on my knee for hours.
Poor old thing.

{angry] fucking idiots!!

I have to second the feliway, its brilliant. Get a diffuser too (like the air freshener diffusers), they are expensive but its worth it - you just need to plug it in for about a week before you bring the cat home, defo spray some in cats basket etc. Might be as well to keep cat in for a bit until she is less traumatised as i would worry she might take fright if she goes out and go and hole up somewhere.

Bastards, i would have put a fecking rocket through their door!

Thanks for advice, will get feliway. Could I have some more info on the diffuser? Do you mean you can buy a feliway brand one?
It got worse when they came back looking for her later that morning, thinking she was dying in the bushes, with another dog pulling at the lead, going "yeh got the scent" angry The more we pieced together the worse we felt sad

OMG Scardey, i would be out there with my gun (if i had one) and not for using on the dog either - sorry, but what cunts!

The feliway diffuser is the same stuff as the spray it just comes in a plug in, i think this would suit you better than the spray as the spray wears off and is only suitable for short term use. It releases a pheremone (airbourne hormone) that is released by lactating queens and this has a calming effect on cats. It is often used to stop them wetting in the house. It is expensive, i think about £40 for the diffuser which comes with a refil and £25 for a refil, they last a month but hopefully puss will be feeling OK by then.

You can get feliway from your vets, it might be cheaper online or at pets at home or something.

So sorry you had to have this happen angrysad There truly are some weak evil cowards in this world
