This week I am so grateful that we still have our sweet kitty boy, Mr Toes!
Mr Toes found us last summer and as we fed him and came to love him we decided he had found his forever home. After being neutered we tried keeping him inside but he is very rambunctious young guy and so we started letting him go out during the day. He is always home and inside before dark.
Yesterday when Mr ALC went to get him in he was on the screened porch. He came in and was acting funny. He hid under my bed. He let us pet him but did not want to move. Even worse he vomited several times during the evening. He would not eat or drink. We knew something was wrong.
First thing this morning Mr ALC took him to the Vet...thank goodness we did
The vet found a wound and shaved the area to find this....someone shot Toesie!
An XRay showed this
A pellet! Someone shot my sweet kitty with a pellet gun. They did more tests and felt like he was OK, no internal bleeding and it looked like it missed the organs but he does have a sore rib. At this time they aren't going to remove it.
Several shots later (antibiotics and pain) he came home and is resting!
Toesie is a very sweet cat and we can't believe someone shot him with a pellet gun. He will no longer be an inside/outside cat. He will have to just be happy with the screened porch. As the vet said, 'he dodged a bullet' literally!
I am so Grateful for my sweet Mr Toes!
