Please don't let my kitty be squished...

Friday, March 05, 2010

So tonight the DH comes in from feeding our outdoor wood boiler stove. He's crying. "There's been an accident I have to tell you about."

Our very favorite cat, Oreo, who is only about 1 year old always follows him out to the stove every night. She's the sweetest cat, with a spunky personality that can put our 130 lb German Shepard dog into his place.

Seems that tonight Oreo wasn't right there when DH started filling the stove like usual. Then he goes to flip a giant chunk of wood (about 100 lbs) over and she ran under it. He said she was flattened but then got up and ran like crazy. He looked for her to no avail with the flashlight.

Of course after he told me, my daughter and I were out there in the dark calling for her and searching. We can't find her. Lots of woods around us so she could be in there but she's no where in the 7 acres of our property.

I know sometimes cats just want to be alone to nurse their wounds and then they will show up OK. It's so cold out there though. She's the first cat that my daughter has taken to. For some strange reason she's always been fearful of them, even as kittens, even though I've always loved them and had her around them since she was little. Oreo would bounce with her on the trampoline and let carry her around endlessly.

Please let her be OK... we've shed enough tears tonight.

    I am sorry to hear of Oreo getting hurt. I pray she is just scared and will be back. I will keep you in my prayers.

    As I sit here with my cat, Sabine, in my arms, my thoughts and prayers go out to your sweet little Oreo. I really hope she is OK. I'll be thinking of you all, and praying that she comes back soon, and no worse for wear. Hang in there.

    Cats are very very resilent, they bounce back. I hope she returns soon though and that she is ok, and that you won't worry about her. I have a cat here and live in the woods basically. He insists on being outside. sometimes he comes in pretty tattered, he even took a ride, I am pretty sure, having crawled into a big semi truck engine when it dropped like a rock in temps, a year ago spring. He was gone 4 mos. and surprised the heck out of me one afternoon, being he had come back and was sitting on the window sill wanting in when I got home that day..... He was almost completely wild and went for my left over ceasar salad like crazy and had instincts of a tiger from his experiences. so, don't give up. She may be very stunned and ouched , but maybe she will be ok and be waiting to come inside within hours or a few days. If she is not badly injured, she will recover and be back with you soon. I will pray this is the case.
