how is kitty doing?
Dogs attacked my cat. - Page 2
Sorry it took me so long to get back. Tigger is home and resting. He'll have his bandage on for at least another week but he is eating some now and trying to start using the litter box - they were having to express his bladder until yesterday. (He hasn't defecated - I think not since the attack - but he hasn't been eating very much either.) He started purring I think before I got him all the way in the house; he's definitely glad to be home.
Animal control has been a little slow to respond, but in fairness I think they're probably understaffed. I did speak with an officer today who said he'd patrol this afternoon. My husband saw a dog a street or so over who looked like one of the two - not the pit - and he was not fenced or chained. I told the officer but haven't heard back since then. It turns out we have a leash law for both cats and dogs. He said that even though the cat was in my yard, he wasn't restrained at the time (fence or leash) so the dogs' owner/s couldn't be held liable. He can take the dogs in re: the leash law and said he'd mention the cat to the owners, but it looks like that'll be it.
Thanks! Does anyone have any tips on how to get him to eat and drink? He'll drink some of the liquid from wet cat food, and that's all he wants to do. He seems to keep swallowing and reswallowing after he's finished, too.
No luck with the dogs yet, I'm afraid, at least not that I know of. I guess I'll call Animal Control again Monday.
Thanks! I just have tuna in oil but I did give him some of that. I think that may have helped some with his GI tract as that's working again now. He's been using the litter box enough today that I wonder if he's been drinking when I'm out of the room. He did eat a little dry cat food but I may buy some tuna in water tomorrow or some baby food anyway.
