My sons cat has been attacked by something....or someone. I say someone because we've had a lot of trouble with our neighbors. They've killed some of our chickens and poisoned our dog resulting in a horrifying death. This cat is just an outside cat we've had for 2 years. He was a kitten of a stray that we took in. All of his litter mates died from a respiratory infection so he's a strong little guy so I hope we can get him past this. This is whats going on with him.....Snowy is his name... His front left leg, on the inside looks like all the fur has been removed and there is one clean puncture wound His front right leg looks like it is broken. It appears to have a couple smaller puncture wounds. He holds this leg up and hobbles on the other one letting this paw dangle. I thought that maybe he couldn't feel it anymore (it's been two days) but he was moving it. Other wise he looks fine. He came as fast as he could last night when I fed the cats. He did his usual feeding habits...hogging the bowl, choking down the food as fast as he can as usual. His tail is poofed up like cats do when they see a dog. Tonight, I brought him inside the house (prays my husband doesn't find out- he is not the cat kind) he is laying on our down stairs couch. We fed him and I gave him a little bit of antibiotics. He wasn't too interested in drinking water at that point. He was purring. I know that cats in pain will purr a lot but I don't think Snowy's purring is unusually much especially for special treatment. So to get down to it, I need to know if anyone knows of a location, group or something that works with people to get their pets vet care. My husband has been laid off, off and on for the last year and a half. Money if very tight. There is no way we could even do a payment plan right now. Someone told us to 'just take care of it' but we can't. We just lost our dog over the summer and my son is still having a hard time with that. I couldn't imagine the pain he would have knowing his cat didn't make it. So please, any advice is welcome. We are in KY.
