Hi all, Ive just registered as am very upset and thought this would be the place place to share it. yesterday while I was visiting my mum, one of her cats came home after being missing for 48 hours, he came in wet, dirty, exhausted, and in agony. My mum took him straight to the emergency vets, where they said he probably been run over and they would get him comfortable for the night and x-ray him the next day. The next day we went in to see him and they had given him an xray and he had a broken pelvis, a broken tail and his bladder was basically busted with severe nerve damage, he couldnt go to the toilet at all. They said they could operate but it might not even work and the recovery would be harsh and long, and it was expensive. My mum made the decision to put him to sleep. And it was the most heartbreaking thing I have ever seen, my family are in bits and my mum is devestated even my dad cried. He was a lovely rescue cat and it breaks my heart he was out there for 2 days in agony and still mamanged to crawl back home, but in the end he had to die My point is (sorry its long) I have just got a lovely kitten and now I dont want to let him out ever. I dont want him getting run over and i live on a main road, although my back garden goes out into a side street. There are lots of cats nearby who dont get run over but now im worried. I have always thought it mean to keep a cat indoors but now i just dont want him to get hurt. Does anyone have indoor cats? what would you do! sorry its long and thanks for any replies..
