Thread Name: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
We've had a very worrying time with 'Spirit' aka 'MickeyPickey' or Sam the Skull. He's refused any food for days and was getting thinner and thinner. He sat on The Bench in the pouring rain soaked to the skin, so I lifted him into our sitting room and put him on the sofa on a thick warm blanket.
He seemed so weak, so I rang our delightful neighbour's daughter (the veterinary nurse) and she came round (socially distancing of course)
She kindly carried him back to his house up the road, but no-one was in.
Yesterday I noticed he was lying on his side in the road gasping. I hurried across and lifted him onto the pavement. He couldn't stand up, and he's just skin-and-bone.
The vet nurse went out later but he'd vanished, yet his owners were still out. She's tried messaging them but no reply so far. We're both very worried and a bit angry at such neglect.
May have an update later, but we both think it's the end for the poor chap. Oh dear :(
