Some of you might remember that we adopted an abandoned kitten a few months ago. Well, some time yesterday she sustained terrible injuries. The vet said it was consistent with being hit by a car. Somehow she managed to drag herself home. I had noticed that she had stayed in her basket during evening but had no idea that she was injured. I took her to the emergency vets and he assessed her. She had a fractured pelvis, a ruptured spleen, a torn diaphragm and possible brain damage. I can't stop crying. She has had an operation this morning and has survived that. It is too early to say any more. The vets bills are close to £3,000, so I am really hoping that my insurance will cover this. It just added to the stress that nobody will give me a definite answer about that. I can't believe that someone has injured my cat and left her for dead. I can't stop thinking about the pain she must have been in. What makes it worse is that we live in a quiet cul-de-sac, so I can't help wondering how she came to be so badly hurt. Please keep your fingers crossed for Sooty.
