Well, she's going home tonight..so that's good news! :yes: I'm glad she made it through the whole thing. When my grandma told me about it I immediately thought she had passed away...I very surprised that she was alive.

Even if it was by accident the person should have come forward! I mean who leaves a cat like that? She walked home..maybe the person thought she would die and never be found? Whatever the situation that's no excuse for what has happened.

When I was young we had a cat named Smokey, One day he came home and we noticed he was bleeding, we couldn't find where he was bleeding from. We too him to the vet and found that he had about 60 pieces of buckshot under his skin. He was shot by a shotgun, we don't know where the vet said if he tried to remove the pieces it ould most likely kill him. The vet gave him antibiotics and told us he should recover. Smokey lived another 6 years. I think Smokey must have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. As all of my family are competitive shooters and none of us were shoting that day I assume it was an accident. If it hadn't been i'm sure whoever did it would have tried to shoot him again. It's amazing how resilliant some animals are.

Update with pics!

Here's Feebe when she got home. She was so loving and sweet it was hard to imagine anything had happened to her. She's doing good now. Eating, using the litter box, playing, and all the other things kitties do. We are still watching for an infection, but I imagine she's ok now. She is really wanting outside though..but my uncle's not letting her. That's good...anyway..here are the pics...


Eating some food..finally :]


You can see all the places she was shaved here..the one on her leg was for the IV


Sitting pretty ^-^


Coming over for a petting...

I would just like to thank everyone for all the prayers and vibes! She truly is a miracle cat and it is amazing she is here with us today.

Aww, what a pretty little girl she is! She has such kind eyes, it is heartbreaking that someone intentionally hurt that sweet little doll!

Thank you for the update! I hope that Phoebe continues to heal & thrive. I understand how difficult it will be for Phoebe to become content to be inside, but maybe you could help create a cat playground for her. KMart is selling these cubes called "Cat Play Cubes" for $3.99 - they are collapsible nylon cubes with holes on 3 sides, and can be attached with enclosed velcro strips, to redesign the configuration, to keep the arrangements new & interesting.
And good luck to your uncle on his move to CA. Here's the website for the state, which has tons of both useful & fun information & links:http://www.ca.gov/state/portal/myca_homepage.jsp.

Thanks! He won't be moving for a while though because the vet bill took all his savings he had for it. Thank you for the link though! And those cubes sound cool..I'll have to look into that.

What a tragic story, but I'm more than happy that Phoebe has a happy ending! She is just beautiful!! Sending continued vibes for her recovery.

Since this is a thread about horrible abuse, I'll move this to SOS.

Aren't we all? Not every cat is as lucky as her unfortunately. Thanks for moving it too. ;]

I'm so sorry this happened - I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers (and her humans, of course).

She is really very beautiful (but aren't they all?) - and they always have such poise - even when shaved in three places!

Glad she's doing better! THe cat cubes are great! Got one from wal mart a few days ago and am going to get another soon! A really fun thing to do is tie a bell ball (that's what i call them anyways) to one of the ribbons on the insides, my kitties roll around for HOURS! lol. They love it!

Torties always make me think of patchwork quilts... comfortable and homey. I haven't yet met a tortie who isn't an amiable sort of cat (except for the ferals, and they're just scared and wild).

I'm glad she's better. All those shaved patches make her look pretty weird, but hey, fur grows back, right?
