May Have Run Frodo Over!!! - Page 2

post #31 of 40
Oh honey, ! This isn't your fault. Accidents happen..that's why they're called accidents. You didn't do this on purpose and I'm sure Frodo knows that.

If you saw him running away then you couldn't have done too much damage. You probably woke him up from a nap and freaked him out but if you had actually run over him, I don't think he would have been able to run away that fast. He's probably laying low licking his wounds (and his pride).

I agree, try walking around with a cat of stinky tuna fish or something to try to entice him out. Sending many come home soon .

Everyone thank you again. It helps to be told not to feel guilty. I am praying, crying and sending warm healing energies to Frodo. If he lives and comes home into the house, I will be over joyed.

I know I hit him, felt the bump in the car - not sure how fast I was reversing out of the parking space, but... also not sure how long he stayed down on the ground, there was a patch of fur, abraded by the pavement. He was
flung hard enough... He could have internal injuries that rapidly lead to
death from shock or broken bones, I do NOT know the extent of injuries
or where/how he was hit while UNDER the carriage of car... jsut that
I didn't run over with a tire, there was no blood and he seemed capable under adrenline rush of fear to move away from the car... even with injuries.

If I ran over anyting, it was paw or the tail tip and if I did it was his tail...i hit with undercarraige as he was trying to get up most likely... or as he began to move away... he was not so stunned he could not move, as with
high impact but could have developed hemorages of brain or lung air bubble, and died later somewhere private.

I am sure he has some injuries, they need care. He needs to be found. I believe he went in the bushes to hide, then moved when it got quiet into the drain system somehow, despite his injuries. Then, where he went I do not know.

He was not in the pipe stem I was able to flash light down when I looked (no lumps or bodies or eyes showing), he is not under houses, I live in townhomes row, no "under" places for him to go except bushes or
someone's garage...he could have escaped via large drain culvert, but
he was not an fan of that. Could have also gone into a secondary drain
that comes out under the road (jumping would be required, so not sure he could even do THAT much...)

Checked the road pipe, can't see into the road drain without I
move manhole but my monies are that is where he is holed up.
Fingers crossed he CAN locomote out enough if it rains to come
home...

My two other kitties are out side somewhere wondering if they
are with him, keeping vigil. Would hope and pray it is so, tho
they were not close to him...

Prayers prayers and more prayers. Going to "patrol" for him again now.
If hurt will crawl off to die or recover until he can make home...praying
for the later.

Please all, your deepest heartfelt prayers that he comes home, he doesn't have to be uninjured, but I want him to have me attending him with peace, warmth and security to help him heal or to pass on if it be so. Not out in the streets...

I know he had love and 6 months of papmering life that he would not have had if I had not taken him in. He was scheduled to be PTS in March as a feral shy cat at the shelter - he had one day left when he was pulled out. I got him 2 wks after and took 2 months to calm him, to where he would
be relaxed, then magically at 3 month mark Iet him outside and suddenly I could pet him and he purred for me.

So, this cat had the best world he could ever have asked for as a kitty,
and I must say, if he doesn't come back, then I take that as my comfort.
But I feel he will try if able to return...


Am going to alert my neighbors in the garage town homes to look for him.

Oh sweetie I am so sorry! You have given him so much love and a wonderful home, and you MUST take comfort in that. As Calico2222 pointed out, accidents happen, that's why they're called accidents.

Do your best not to keep reliving what happened. Concentrate on sending out loving vibes, and just keep looking. Alert the neighbors and leave out stinky food.

He's made the area around your home his territory, and it is most likely that's where he'll be, somewhere. Maybe buy a number of flashlights, put fliers in the neighbor's mail boxes that you're searching for your kitty so they don't wonder or get upset for people being on their property, invite as many friends as you can, and leave no bush unturned, so to speak.

Adding my vibes and prayers for his quick return....

I am praying, and will light a candle and ask St. Michael for intercession - I am not Catholic, but a dear friend gave me a little statue of him (not for an idol, but as a visualization tool). I pray directly to Jesus, but my experience with St. Michael is that the saints join in our prayers and yes, wonderful miracles do happen

Prayers for him to turn up and be ok.

I agree with this. I don't think he's hurt too badly. He's probably just scared, and as Calico said, licking his wounds & his pride.

I've been taking care of strays for a long time, and sometimes they disappear for awhile - doing whatever cats do. Most of the time, they come back to "safety", unphased and unharmed. Cats DO have nine lives, you know..

More prayers & vibes for Frudo's safe return!
