messageCat's foot run over by a car
Posted by SueOrr0103 March 06, 09:43PM

Hello,

There is a cat outside my house and it looks injured. Looks like a car has run over its foot. Can anyone recommend how I can help? Apologies for the question, I don't have any pets so I have no idea, but want to help the poor thing.

Regards,
Sue

I would call the RSPCA helpline and ask for their advice. Alternatively local vets have emergency contact details, you could call and ask them.

Thanks we managed to contact the RSPCA emergency helpline and they are coming. Its a black and white cat missing an eye, just in case anyone recognises the cat.

Well done for taking the trouble, lots wouldn't. If you can, just as with humans, if you could get a blanket over the poor thing and keep it warm until help arrives that might be useful.

Well done, Sue! If for some reasons the rspca doesnít get to you, call Celia Hammond. Theyíre also 24/7. A big thank you from a fellow cat lover.

Gordon is alive but badly injured. We have collected him from the RSPCA Hospital and he is with Medivets. They are assessing his injuries.

Thank you for rescuing poor Gordon...and to the owner, I dearly hope he will pull through. From a 4 cat household!

If this is the Gordon I know of and who has been around for a long time in the Landells Road area, I'm very sorry to hear of his accident and wish him a speedy recovery. He is quite a character.

Thanks for being so awesome and caring Sue! I really hope Gordon makes it and has many more treats to steal and laps to nap on to come.

Is this the same cat posted on the facebook forum group earlier today?
So has he been reunited with the owners?

messageRe: Cat's foot run over by a car
Posted by jtm March 07, 06:14PM

Yes that is Gordon. I've just looked on Facebook and seen the lovely photo of him. No update on his injuries yet. He is alive but his back legs are damaged. Thank you to all who communicated and for contacting the RSPCA. We are very grateful to you all. Gordon is a well loved cat residing in Landells Road.

Sorry to hear about Gordon passing. Sounds like he was a very popular cat, and known to many EDF peeps.

Over Rainbow Bridge heíll have lots of company, and lots of much loved furry friends.

Sorry for your loss.
