Fighting for his life.

posted on 22nd of june, 2012

This is Dave and he's my cat, he is just over one year of age and today whilst out doing what cats do he got attacked and savaged by two dogs.

He's been ripped up pretty bad and is tonight fighting for his life in hospital. We are very lucky that a kind passer-by saw this happening, stopped her car, fought the dogs off, wrapped him up in a blanket and took him straight to the nearest vets. He has a microchip so the vet was able to contact us straight away.

I'm not religious but hope in some way that positive thoughts may just help the poor guy out somehow. He is a wright little character and soft as a brush, can't even imagine how bad this must be for him. We did not take the vets advice to have him instantly put down but wanted to give him a fighting chance and see how he does over the weekend.
It's going to be a long weekend :-(

I'm so sorry for your loss...he was a beautiful cat and you have wonderful photos of him. He was lucky to have such a caring owner. I lost a cat a couple months ago after 12 years and still miss him. I hope you find it in your heart to have another cat someday.

You can edit your blog if there is an "edit" button next to the "useful" bottom at the top right of the entry. I think it only appears for a limited time.

Good luck, buddy. I understand how you must feel. Our dog of 13 years died the other night. It hurts.
