hi I went to put dinner on earlier and when I walked bk into the living room my 2yr old was sat on our 5mnt old kitten, I ran an grabed her off the kitten but damage was already done. shes not walking right, like her hips are dislocated maybe, I say maybe coz every now an then while I waited for a family member to come to rush her to the vet (that's where she is now) she was getting up on her bk legs to walk but not for long an then she would almost do a gi joe crawl, ive had to move her litter box near to her food coz she was mewing to be picked up to go to it and shes a little incontinent since, keeps leaking a bit of wee bless her. ok so I need to know weather its likely shes done serious damage to our little lilly or if (prey to god) its simple dislocation? I cant lose her, crying thinking about it, It only took a min to chuck stuff in the oven an now im faced with a poorly kitty. im so worried for her, she was a rehomed cat coz previous owner thought her a bad cat at 11wks old!! shes lovely an no trouble an im so scared she wont come bk from the vet. any advice is greatly appreciated.
hi thanx hun, shes bk home now thank god, the vet said that she was badly bruised but nothing is broken. shes asked that I moniter her over the nxt 24 hrs for any deterioration but thinks she will be fine and im also to keep the house as quiet as I can over the nxt wk for her to recover quickly. im so relieved!!! I was sure I had lost her, I thought of her bk too but its all good, oh she said her bladder is intact too so that's another weight off my mind too, an she went straight for her litter tray when she got bk so she still has control of her bladder, the leaking must have been a bit of shock earlier. My daughter had a stern talking to earlier and will have another stern talk with her again in the morn, she must understand how fragile animals are. its odd coz shes fine with our rabbits!! she thought she could ride on the cats bk bless, that's going to be explained again in the morn too.
The cat will probably take care of the issue with the child. My son still has a scar on his face from an early scratch. But it's more likely the cat will just never allow herself to be in reach of the child any more. I'm glad it was not a spinal injury.
