One of "my" feral cats has been severely injured. She disappeared for almost two days and she reappeared on Saturday morning with a huge wide gash just above the eye (not bleeding), her eye completely swollen shut and limping very heavily. I have been treating her with antibiotics as well as metacam as precribed by my lovely vet and she has come on in leaps and bounds. Her eye is no longer closed as of this morning and she is moving much easier. Are the wounds consistent with a car strike or could it be something more sinister? The human inflicted wounds I have seen on ferals are generally broken bones, bruisings from kickings and broken jaws but often no obvious open wounds, unless stones were trhown at her. She is very "wild" so would not be likely to go near a human in any case., She is a spayed female: is there a possibility she could have been attacked by another cat, perhaps an unneutered male from outside the colony? My experience is that the severity of the injury is not common for a spayed feral female involved in a fight. Your thoughts please. And please hold thumbs for her speedy recovery. My OH and I are very fiond of this little one: she is a loner and is not really close to the other 3 ferals (her mother and two older half-siblings) in "my" group.
