My little cat got hit by car Thursday. Weirdest thing...he always likes to come around for walks with me and his dog-sister Kalia, and it always gave me a heart attack, I knew the day would come. What made it so weird was how I felt it happening before it happened. Before he left sidewalk I felt like he was going to run in front of the car... he was about a step or two from being totally crushed, as it turns out he ran into the side and smashed his face, fracture in jaw, can't tell the head injury trauma yet but he seems like a pain-meded beat up version of himself, not any apparent neuro damage, superficial injuries on leg...like he caught the corner
He's been hospitalized since, the $$$ is reaching the point where decidsions become tougher...too much more and I won't have to worry about whether he can eat cuz I won't be able to afford to feed him or my fam (without begging the fam for a handout or something). GOing into work to catch up now, its been difficult to concentrate. WHen I am done I will go see him and decide whether or not to take him home. They are sort of pushing bringin him to surgeon, if the consult is reasonable I may do that to see if it can be avoided, and if not makes the decision easy, there's no way I can afford that (and the care required after). It's a unusual fracture they say, maybe it can heal on its own. UGH
Added bonus: I broke up with his "mom" awhile ago but we stayed close...until New Years when I met someone else and we stopped communicating. She still has feelings but I am into this new girl, so it's been good that we stopped communicating. I don't know what to do here, she never really took care of him and basically treated him like guests do, give him a little love when he came up to her face and say how cute he was when laying around but really not too much else...so I don't feel COMPLETELY obligated to let her in on this, but feel kind of guilty for not just so I can avoid drama. It's been a rough week, send some good vibes my way please.
