My poor pussy cat has been run over by a car. He is okay though. I took him to the vet straight away as he was miaowing loads and going crazy so I thought something was up with him and he was walking funny. He's had injections of anti-inflamatories, anti-biotics and painkillers and I have more medicine to give him over the next few days and I have to keep him in and keep an eye on him.

I :heart: Randomcat so I really hope he is okay.

    Oh no :(

    That is my worst nightmare. I would have been freaking out. Glad his mummy got to him so soon!

    Poor Randomcat. I hope he feels better very soon

    Put him infront of the tv tonight to watch Big Brother. That'll make him feel better ;)

    He's off his head on cat-morphine at the moment. He's currently perched on top of my jewelry box.

    Thank you for all the well wishes.

    Aww, *hug*'s - I hope he has a quick recovery :heart:

    Huge hugs to both of you!

    My cat was mauled by a dog but she pulled through, cats are pretty strong and tend to bounce back.

    Thanks. I can't sleep. I'm quite worried he'll die in the night and I'll wake up to a dead cat. The vet said he could have internal injuries that wouldn't be apparent at first and that I should moniter him closely and not let him out for a few days. So I feel I should be watching over him. I would feel better if he would sleep in the same room as me as he usually sleeps on my bed with me but he seems to want to be in a different room to me today - apparently this is because when they are injured they like to hid. He's got shredded back claws from where he was dragged along the road whilst trying to stop himself :( When I was a child my school friend got knocked over, afterwards she was joking with the paramedics and smiling and we thought she'd just broken her leg. But she died a couple of days later from brain injury even though she looked fine.

    He's made it through the night and he seems a lot better this morning :d

    He's not out of the woods yet but he seems to be doing really well now. He is his usual cuddley self now, all snuggly and yummy.

    He's been fairly still on my jewellery box for at least a couple of hours now. Also he's not asked to go outside yet (he's not allowed out while he's recovering) which is unlike him, usually he wants to go outside straight away when he gets up. He is eating alright, I'm not sure if he's used the litter tray (I should probably clean it so I can tell more easily). He has very little energy. He seemed better than this first thing this morning. I hope he's not in pain.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    It's a good sign he's eating. Sounds like he's just recooping for a bit.

    Do you have to take him back to the vet?

    I'm taking him back to the vets this afternoon at 4.10pm. I have petplan insurance and will have reached the excess so might as well take him as many times as I want to for reassurance over the next few days or weeks and then make a claim. His back end isn't so mobile, like if I stroke him he won't lift his tail up. I couldn't sleep last night and woke early this morning so I might feel a bit better if hre gets checked out.

    Yeah I would- just for peace of mind. Battlecat came in one evening holding her tail really low. Took her to the vet and she had injured it in someway and stretched the ligaments. It took a few days of antiobiotics but her tail perked right up :) I hope the visit to the vet goes well and Randomcat returns to his usual self. Let us know how it goes

    We just got back from the vets, he has healthy pink gums so that means he doesn't have internal bleeding, he is very bruised but they don't think anything is broken. They gave him another shot of the cat-morphine so he'll be high again pretty soon and I've got some more of the anti-inflammatories to put on his food later. I feel reassured that I took him to the vets and I'm taking him again in a few days or sooner if he gets worse.

    I just saw this - glad he's doing ok :)!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Today he has been able to lift his tail a little bit :)

    Also this evening he had a nibble of my hand which is his normal playful behaviour.

    It's weird, sometimes he'll just sit in the same position for hours on end looking stoned but then now he is having short bursts of normal behaviour as well but then he'll go still again. I think overall he is improving one step at a time.

    I keep thinking how lucky we were - not lucky that he got knocked over but lucky we have pet insurance, lucky that I got to him in a few minutes of it happening as if it had been half an hour later I would have gone out for several hours for the evening, lucky the vets was still open, lucky that we just moved to a new vets in walking distance from my flat instead of the old one that was a taxi ride away so I didn't have to wait for a cab with Randomcat in pain... lucky he survived. :)

    really glad randomcat is doing better, that's great news :) give him a cuddle from battlecat
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Thanks guys.

    He continues to do well. He is still on painkillers/anti-inflammatories and an anti-biotic. I'm taking him back to the vets tomorrow for another check up hopefully. He's been out and about again and is much more confident. He nibbles me again with his little cat mouth and he's back to sleeping on my bed which is where he belongs (he wouldn't sleep there for a few days when it happened).

    He sends his miaowkisses to everyone in this thread :heart:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Makes me happy to know that he's getting better, at least he seems to know what he's able to do with himself and that he's doing things you like, must be reassuring to you that he's biting playfully at you too, seems like his character has returned?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Took him to the vets yesterday, he has a temperature but other than that he's okay. Still on medication.
