Cat hit by car-lying on sidewalk, can't walk - 05 Mar 2009
Hudson, NY, Thursday, Mar 05, 2009
Animalkind received another call from the Police: "A cat was hit by car and lying on sidewalk. He can't walk - PLEASE HELP!!"
We rushed to the scene and found the poor cat in distress underneath a car tire.
We approached the wounded cat slowly. Injured animals can react aggressively and are very unpredictable, since they are in pain and shock.
Once we got him wrapped in the blanket, and into a carrier, we were off to the vet!
Once at the vet, the poor cat was given pain medication and an X-ray. The X-ray revealed a broken pelvis -- not the best of news, but he will get better! Dr. Tucker at Round Top Animal Hospital in Germantown offered to keep him until he is ready for adoption.
Once the pain meds took effect, he started to purr ....and it turned out, he is a real love bug!
Please help us to continue our rescue work and donate today to the Ralphy Fund, a fund established to help with medical care for injured and abused cats.
Update 13 May 2009
Happy ending: he was relocated on a wonderful horse farm!
