Just come back from a late night visit to Vet , broke the curfew actually although I do have permission and papers to be out on emergencies.
Yet another non neutered Tom run over. A lovely, kind lady , Paz, saw him lying in the road and stopped to get him for the next car along would probably have run over him.
He tried to run and ended up under her car but she got him , put him in the only bag she had and called me.
She was just 5 minutes away from my house.
We took him straight to vet.
It’s not looking good , he definitely has a badly broken jaw, a blow to the head and possibly a broken front leg.
He’s in shock. So he’s been given really strong painkillers, is being kept warm and is in an oxygen tent under observation.
We will know more in a few hours.
That is 4 run over cats on the same stretch of country road in less than a week. Sam of Trebaluger Equine Centre picked one up on Tuesday and took him straight to vet but sadly it had to be put to sleep and sadly also found her own mummy cat dead , having been hit outside her house.
Otra visita de emergencia a nuestro vet esta noche. Un gato gris, fuerte , sin castrar ha sido atropellado a la entrada a Biniaroca en Es Castell.
Esta muy mal, con prognostico reservado. Tiene la mandíbula rota , posible daño cerebral. De momento esta con analgésicos fuertes , y con calo y oxígeno.
So sad , cars drive far to fast anyway on this stretch of road . Let’s hope this one can make a recovery . 😻 thank you Janice
Sending good energy.... Do hope he’ll pull through
What a dreadful time you are having Janice 😢
So sad, 🤞🤞🤞 he pulls through xx You do an amazing job
So sad. People drive too fast xx
I found a wee one in similar condition and she was not expected to live but after a few weeks with the vet she went to her new home. She looks like she has been through the wars but doing great. Hope your wee one pulls through x
Thank you Janice for caring so much. I hope he will get better if at all possible 😢❤️🐱
One of the loveliest cats ever. Gentle , loving, never raised a paw to another cat.
On a more practical note never scratched the furniture, stole my food or peed in the wood basket.
I found 5 kittens at the side of the road in Binibeca About 8 years ago
Two were run over before I could get them, One , a grey one died in the first couple of days.
Only Michael and Carrot survived.
Michael was always the weaker of the two.
He never went far from the house, but neither does Carrot.
Michael knew his name and always answered to it with a Meow.
A couple of years ago I suddenly realised that I hadn’t seen him that day. Extremely unusual, I was immediately very worried. I mentioned it to Zenda Barlow and she said that she had seen him.
I asked was she certain that it had been Michael.
Absolutely she said.
I said his name and he answered me.
Always around on the counter in the Cat Cafe he made many friends.
He was sometimes in charge of the till and the famous Cat Nip mice.
His weight has always been a bit up and down and he had lost a little but on Sunday he was crying, not just talking, every time he saw or heard me.
It seemed to be his mouth so I gave him painkillers and he ate a little.
He was a little unsteady on his paws.
Monday we went to the Vet.
A growth on his gums. My heart hit the floor. Had it , would it spread ?
It was removed and he came home. Tottery , I made him a bed in my bathroom. He ate a little during the night but yesterday he didn’t look well. Gave him painkillers, thinking back to my implants earlier this year and how painful that had been.
Was going to check in with vet last night but at 5.30 I discovered Michael hiding in a cardboard box and when he came out , crying and staggering
Rang vet. He went to the clinic straight away. He hoped that it was the effect of the quite severe op and pain.
He was given opiates and put in the oxygen tent , he rallied a bit but was bad this morning and having had the biopsy results rushed through , it was discovered that he had a rare tumour, which we will know later if it had spread to his brain.
Poor Michael. He had a happy life and he definitely knew that he was loved.
Like his brother, he would watch to see when I was sitting down and come and join me. Always.
