A friend of mine has just phoned me for help. He has been feeding a Sarajevo street cat for a while, but he is not really a cat person and when he went away recently left it to a neighbour, who was not very efficient. My friend returned last night to find the cat on his step, unable to walk or move the lower half of its body properly. He suspects it has been hit by a car and may have a broken back or pelvis, though it is dragging itself around. Apparently it slept on his bed last night, and he is now panicking to see if he can do something. I gave him the mobile number of the vet who saved Persil. So Mark is phoning him and will then come and get my carrier to take this poor animal to the vet. I suspect nothing can can be done, though it is eating and even trying to use the litter box Mark made for it this morning. Mark says he thinks it cannot use its bowels, though it is trying. Please send some good vibes to this little creature, even if only to help it over the Bridge.
