My Poor Kitty :-(

(26 Posts)

My cat went out last night and I was woken up for the noise of cats fighting, Looked out of the window and all I saw was my cat being beaten up, I went out and the bully legged it but my cat wouldn't come near me.

This morning she is off her food, she won't come in and is laying in the garden in the rain, She tried to attack me when I went to pick her up (Very unlike her) she is usually the most loving cat.

I'm really worried about her, I have an appointment with the Vets at 10.50 but I have no idea how I am going to get her in her basket.

Just needed to let it out really, Between my kids and animals I can foresee a breakdown!!

And apparently I have lost the ability to spell and punctuate!

Any joy in enticing her in?

Might be as well to phone the vet and say you're having problems and ask if you can 'see them when you see them'. Also to warn them that she's out of sorts and might be quite aggressive.

PS - if you're desperate and she's lying in the open, you could always try putting a blanket over her and rolling her up and inside the house. I would recommend another adult around for that if you can.

Have you got a big thick towel? Go into garden and approach her slowly, basket nearby (have you got a top opening one? If not call vet and ask to borrow one as the narrow 'door opening' type are difficult in your situation) then put thick towel over cat and quickly scoop up and dump with towel in basket. Rush to vet. She needs to be seen so think you will have to do this. Wear thick gloves too but if quick and big thick towel it should protect you.

Agree warn vets as if she is that distressed they could lend you a 'crush cage' , a top opening basket they can use to sedate her in extreme circumstances. Mention this when you call.

Pps she will be fine, likely had nasty fight and is bruised and sore but needs some pain relief and a check up.

catsdogsandbabies Mon 20-May-13 10:33:44

Ppps (sorry keep thinking of things) keep her in during evenings and night if nasty cat about, most fights occur at dusk/ night.

Just got back from the vets, They have kept her in, They can't feel her bladder and are worried it has popped. She is in alot of pain.

I managed to wrap her in a towel and get her in the basket.

I think I might actually cry. She had a shit start to life, Her last owner broke her leg and abused her.

She is in the best place now and they are going to do everything they can to help her.

Thank you everyone, Now please keep everything crossed that it'll be Ok.

Well done for getting her to the vets - and yes, that is the best place for her. Poor puss.

Good luck to her and let us know how she gets on.

NinaHeart Mon 20-May-13 12:52:41

Just caught up with this thread and hope your cat is ok. So glad you managed to get her to the vet's. Poor kitty.

DrMcDreamysWife Mon 20-May-13 13:02:24

Oh poor kitty. Big hug its horrid when your pets are poorly. Hope the vet gets her better xx

I've not heard anything yet, No news is good news right?

I'm seriously pacing the house, My other cat is whining for her and is currently sat by the beds howling.

cozietoesie Mon 20-May-13 13:20:33

They'll phone when they can tell you something. You've just got to grit it out right now, I'm afraid. sad

I've just uploaded a picture of her, DH has rang 3 times to see if there's any news.

DC's school have called because DD was upset and DS is driving his teacher mad asking her if we have called, She really is a much loved member of the family.

cozietoesie Mon 20-May-13 13:40:16

A lovely girl.

deliasmithy Mon 20-May-13 14:45:16

What a cute button she is.
My experience is that they phone in the afternoon so you could call before they close if you don't hear from them.

twofaceshenanigans Mon 20-May-13 14:55:00

I think I'm going to call around 4pm if I've not heard anything.

Our other cat WILL.NOT.STOP.HOWLING they are both rescues and even when one is out and one s in the regularly check on each other.

deliasmithy Mon 20-May-13 15:03:53

Mine did this when the other was at vets. Lots of hugs and a few treats might help.

twofaceshenanigans Mon 20-May-13 16:24:43

She's home!!! Thank god.

No internal damage just lots of bruising and cuts, she's got some painkillers.

She's very jumpy and a bit frightened and currently snuggled up in the bottom of our wardrobe.

I just want to hug her (but won't because it'll hurt her!)

cozietoesie Mon 20-May-13 16:28:33

Excellent. Are you thinking of some taste treats for her this evening?

Greydog Mon 20-May-13 16:29:10

Glad to hear Kitty is home safe. Best place is the wardrobe!

thecatneuterer Mon 20-May-13 16:41:32

That's a relief.

twofaceshenanigans Mon 20-May-13 16:41:35

She has had a bit of tuna and ate a bit so I'm pleased about that. I'm so relieved that's she's home.

cozietoesie Mon 20-May-13 16:57:23

I bet you are.

It's going to be difficult to keep the DCs away from her even though she needs some quiet time now.

Well done her, anyway. You can relax a little now.
