my mother called me this morning to tell me that Had my kitty got hurt! on her back left leg there is a chunk of flesh about an inch around clean off. it is oval. like a knife cut. like when you peel a potato, just not as long. and on the top of her right front leg there is an even bigger chunk gone!! that one is about an inch and a half around! and deeper! it is a good quarter inch deep, there are two deeper ruts and the top edge wasn't cleanly cut!!! the edges are too smooth for it to have been torn, ripped or bit. who could do that to a poor kitty?! and and obvious pet! she is keeping them really clean, and she is walking around like usually, just a little more carefully. she doesn't seem to be in pain but she has got to be hurting at least a little. we can't take her to the vet till Monday. my mother said that the back one was a few nights ago. they tried to keep her inside but she hates being cooped up and got out. when she came back the next morning they said her front leg was injured. they are being extra careful to keep her inside now. and also, i found out that she called yesterday and told jake about it and asked him to have me call her. then he told me he FORGOT!! needless to say i was not happy. then he said that it wasn't life threatening so calm down! how calm would he be if i did that about his dog that his mother is taking care of?! i'm gonna sell my plasma tomorrow and get money for the vet. we haven't heard of any other pets being hurt but my mother is thinking of going to the police. they live in the area with the least crime in the whole city and there are lots of families with pets, especially cats. i am pretty sure that it will heal fine but as it is open wound i am worried about infection or something.
