    I am devastated my blind cat wandered into my neighbours garden and was savaged by their greyhound. He has a broken jaw and the vet doesn't yet know of any other injuries. He has been placed in an oxygen chamber and given strong pain relief and they will xray him tomorrow.

    My cat is 13 and has diebetes and we have nursed him through this for the past 6-7 years and I am not ready to let him go. Obviously I would if he was suffering but he doesn't deserve this. My neighbour is also very upset and has offered to pay for any treatment but if I could turn back the clock I would.

    I am feeling emotionally drained and I am looking for some virtual comfort.

    Oh no, that's terrible :(

    My thoughts are with you and your boy. I hope tomorrow looks brighter for him once he's x-rayed and thoroughly checked over.

  11. Sorry to hear about your cat and sincerely hope that he recovers!
    BUT - Don't want to be the one to start a war but why the hell are you letting a blind cat wander the streets?

    This happened a few years ago with our cat and the neighbors hunting lurcher. Thankfully we where out in the garden at the time so we could pull the dog off the cat, but I dread to think of what could of happened. I hope your little man makes it.
