Our cat got hit by a car

Today has been a crazy day. We had to run to the feed store and when we get back we find our oldest daughter devastated because her cat, Sevy, got hit by a car. :( I didn't hear my cell phone ring so I missed her call. So we had to make an emergency run to the vet. He has a swollen leg but no broken bones that they could tell from the two x-rays.

He's got some pain meds, he has eaten some pepperoni (dd spoils him and shares her pizza!) and milk. We are hoping he gets some rest and fully recovers. We have to watch him for the next couple of days.

    I am sorry to hear that your cat got hit by a car, how scary that must have been for your daughter. I am really glad to hear that the cat is ok and not seriously injured. I am sure your daughter and the cat will enjoy the extra time they will spend together the next few days while your daughter watches over him.

      Yeah he's a lucky kitty. People travel 50mph on our road. We have him in the house in a box. I'll post a photo in Mom's Moments, but our landlord is coming by tomorrow so he'll have to go out to the barn or garage.

      Not much movement from him yet. Just a bit of stretching. He's in pain.

                He was actually up moving around last night, he's been eating but still resting a lot. So we think he's going to be fine just sore for a few days.

                    The older children are very much Harry Potter fans and named the dog and cat after HP characters. :)

                      Sevy is doing fine. He was back to his old tricks (mating one of our females, jumping up on window ledges and the table we have outside). Thankfully, it appears he is back to normal. Thank you for asking.
