I know most of you are going to tell me to take him to the vet. But with recent loss of income we will be lucky to make the farm payment. This stupid stray dog has been hanging around. We already had one cat killed, but wasn't really sure on who did it. Dog was gone for awhile and nothing happened to the cats. Now its appeared again, I just caught it in the barn and my 6 month old cat is hurt. Looks like it grabbed him around the hips. There is no blood, but the skin is torn and you can see muscle on side about the size of the end of you pinky. The other the size of the whole thumb. The cat is walking, purring and eating. I fixed him up a nice clean place in one of the brooding cages. I have alot of animal meds. I know, I know... I'm going to at least call my vet for advice. Just wondering if anyone has had a similiar situation.
