    Default I'm so upset about my cat :(

    I got a call this morning that I had to go to the vet near my house cause the police picked up my injured cat and brought him in. He was wearing a collar but had lost his tag, but luckily he was microchipped so they could contact me. Apparently he was attacked by a dog. A lady who lived next to my street had found him and called the police. He's in pretty bad shape. He had deep wounds on his hind legs and both his ankles are dislocated and he was in deep shock. The vet said he needed multiple surgeries and we needed to either take him to a specialist animal orthopedic surgeon or put him down. The cost of the surgery itself could be upwards of $5000 not including post care. I was crying at this point. There was no way we could put him down if he could be treated! He's family! Luckily we have pet health insurance which covers up to 80% of accidental injury. We've taken him to the orthopedic surgeon and we're waiting to hear how extensive his injuries are.

    What really pissed me off was that the dog owner had left a badly injured cat on the street and what was the dog doing not on a lead? My DH came home from work and printed out flyers and dropped them off at every house on the street trying to find out who the kind lady who called the police was and if anyone else saw anything. What was touching was we got calls from concerned people we didn't know, but who knew our cat cause he's a big friendly cat who just likes to hang out.

    I'm just praying that he will be OK and that they can fix him back. He's a tough cat. And he's our very first baby.

    I'm sorry to hear about your cat. I can imagine how painful you are now and you must be very very sad looking at your cat, hoping he can tells you who did this to him. I hope the vet can fix him and luckily you bought insurance for him or that'll be very expensive... thanks god!!

    I hope you can find out the truth and your baby will be healthy again.
    :hug::hug::hug::hug:

    sorry, i'm very bad at console others, but please cheer up.

    Thanks, ladies. I still haven't heard from the surgeon. I just can't believe he was left like that. One guy called us to ask about our cat and said he saw the blood outside his apt building.

    that should be the "crime" scene, did that guy tells you if he knows anyone suspicious??
    i hope this is a coincidence cat and dog fight, but not someone let the dog purposely attack your baby
    if someone did this on purpose, there is hell waiting for that dog owner.

    heard from the surgeon. he'll need pins in both legs. the right one has been bitten to the bone and the worst case scenario is that he'll lose his right leg. but can't tell for now. the bill's going to be $7000 plus $1000 post care. at least insurance will pay 80% of that.

    I hope your kitty recovers well.

    Could you go after the dog owner for any of the remaining bills? BTW, that was really nice that so many people called you out of concern.
