Upon getting to my door this evening after work I startled a cat laying nearby. As it scurried off I noticed that it's mechanics seemed off and looked either injured or drugged. It was a black cat and kept to the shadows so I couldn't exactly see what was wrong.
I went back out with a flashlight to see if I could help it. It was afraid and wouldn't let me near it. I could see that it had almost no ability in it's hind legs.
My heart sank. I had seen him/her around before and it didn't have mobility problems before so I am now sure it was injured.
I called the Humane Society and SPCA but got no answers as they are closed at night.
I absolutely feel helpless and can only sit here thinking of it out there suffering. I usually try not to let my feelings overrun my practical thinking but when it comes to animals I cannot help it.
Sorry. I am not sure this is actual thread material but am wondering if anyone has had a similar scenario and what they did.
