My cat Max spent his first night outside Wednesday. He was never intended to be an outside cat but he would not come in and I could not catch him. He came home the next morning and seemed quite pleased with himself. Thursday he took off again but things did not turn out so well this time. Friday morning he came home limping. Due to the weather we didn't have school (last snow day) and I was able to get him into the vet. I thought perhaps something fell on him or he got hurt falling out of a tree or something. Nope, it looks like something bite him. He got a shot for the injury and I have to give him antibiotics once a day. But he isn't his usual self and it just breaks my heart. Max is a big eater but has eaten very little yesterday and today. If he isn't better tomorrow I'm calling the vet again Monday and taking him back in. He did let me pick him up today and purred for me as I held him. But he keeps going under the china cabinet to lay and I can't coax him out. He only comes out to use the litter box. Please keep your fingers crossed that he gets better soon.
