Friends of mine found a stray cat in the middle of the road on Saturday around 11:30pm. I took her into my care and have been looking after her. We went to the animal emergency room on Sunday and found out she had a badly fractured hip plate from blunt force trauma (likely being hit by a car). They also told me to look out for her using the bathroom, which she still hasn’t done.

A coworker of mine convinced me to bring her to the office today until I could get over to the vet around lunch time.

She’s currently over at my normal vet for observation. They’re trying to empty her colon and bladder as well as running a few tests to see if there’s any blood in there. We want to be sure she still has neurological control over her intestines/bladder.

And just got a call from the vet. She’s doing well, but they want to hold her overnight. They’re going to inject her with anti-inflammatory drugs to see if the swelling goes down so she can regain control of her bowels. They also found round worms, so she’s being treated for that.

Currently up to a total of $277 for the ER visit and $164 or so for the vet care today. I guess helping a kitten out is better than building my 944 Turbo, right?

EDIT: I’m setting up a donation option for those who would like to help fund the kitten’s recovery. I’m currently $441 down as of today. Please don’t feel obligated to give anything. While I can certainly afford to care for her, I do appreciate any donations that can be given. Just follow this link through to PayPal. https://goo.gl/IqG6zD
