    Sorry to hear about that - hope you can deal with that cat! I would think if her neck was broken it would have broken the spinal cord and killed her outright. Hope she recovers. [​IMG]

    She is just still lying on her side. No movement but will open her eye when I call to her. If I pick her up her head flops forward all the way down. I gave her a couple of drops of water and she responded but nothing else. If she was just in shock wouldn't she have come around by now . It has been over 4hours now. If anyone has a suggestion I would appreciate it. Thanks
