dislocated cat shoulder
My cat lives indoor/outdoor...and came in 4/6 limping.  At first I thought it was his left paw...so I wrapped it to help stabilize it.  But today while I was checking his leg I noticed that he had a right shoulder blade but not a left one.  So I'm wondering if its possible for a cat to dislocate its shoulder?  And how I might be able to fix it.  I was laid-off work in January and can't afford to take him to the vet...but I don't want to hurt him either.  Please help.

I'm sorry you got laid-off. Life is so tough these days. Hope you find another job soon, so you can take your kitty to the vet. I don't think there is anything you can do at home. Vet will probably want to take X-Rays and run tests and you will certainly need money. From your post, I assume you don't have insurance for him. And I suppose even if you got insurance for him now, they would not cover what just happened.

I would ask around see if the vets in your area offer low cost care or have some sort of payment plan that could make it easier on you. The humane society has very low cost animal care.

Wish I could help you more. Good luck, and take good care of him.

Thank you for your kindness!  I'm taking him in today...but if it isn't something easily fixed they said it could cost more than $1,000.00 and I'm afraid no amount of payments could help me with that right now.
