Last month has not gone well

By HappySkinnyGirl

I didn’t have a heart to blog and I felt totally exhausted. The month of September has not gone well. I got tooth infection, two people who are close to me got cancer and heart related problem. My cat got hit by a car at the turnaround/parking space, very near to my home. I don’t know why people speed up when they are going to park the car anyway. He was just out of sight for a few minutes and then I found him lying in front of our gate, in pain. We had to drive to the next city, about one hour away from where we live, because there is no emergency animal hospital here. Surgery went very well, but the broken shoulder blade is taking several weeks to heal. I haven’t been out of the house for two months. The next x-ray is on Monday so I hope for some good news.

    OH, I’m so sorry this happened to your kitty! How awful! I hope the news on Monday is good and that your cat is healing well! Poor baby!

    You do what you need to do to take care of him, but don’t forget to care for yourself as well.

    I totally understand, I had a cat get hit by a car, on the head and he was in a coma for a bit and then had a long recovery from his head trauma. At first he wouldn’t eat or drink and I had to arrange matters with my boss so that I’d drive home halfway through my shift, do a feeding/watering session and then drive back and work the rest of it. Force feeding and watering a cat is no fun. He made it back 100% though. So I get the exhaustion.

    One thing I learned is that cats really hate being in cones and not being able to groom. So some grooming by their human often helps keep them happier. If it’s at all possible to let him groom under supervision, that can also help a cat’s mental outlook. But if there are stitches, you’ll literally have to watch him VERY closely and be prepared to stop any attempts at stitch removal.

    Give him lots and lots of love! Cats are resilient, with luck, he’ll make a full recovery.

    I hope the people in your life also do well. Take care and I’ll be thinking good thoughts for you and your kitty!

      Poor kitty! I’m so glad your cat made it back 100%.

      His bone is healing very well now, 95% or so. Now we have to work on his “biceps”, doing some balance work, lots of outside air (with a leash) and fun activities. The problem is when playing inside he is hyperactive and not taking easy at all. Less play for now I guess.
