We adopted our cat, Tidbit, the first week of August from a Humane Society. They said he had been left in the parking lot with a broken foot but he was okay to adopt. He was living in a cat colony at the time and came up to use every time we came to visit. My daughter had originally gone to get a new car since her companion of many years had passed of kidney failure in January. When we took the cat home we noticed bloody spots on the carpet and since he had a scab where his cast had been removed we thought he was picking on that. We took him to the vet every four days for six weeks getting him bandaged but we kept having problems. Then we tried a couple of weeks of him wearing a cone. A second opinion revealed that the back foot had been totally crushed and there were dead bone chips in there causing an infection. Now we must decide whether or not to try surgery or amputate and the surgery seems like it would be harder on the cat and a lot more expensive. This has cost us almost $600 already. We are looking for ideas, resources and support.
