Came home last night to my poor cat limping and holding his tail funny. Poor guy had defecated on a bed that we had placed on top of our portable washing machine. We don't know what happened -- no one was home.
We rushed him to the vet, and did a couple of x-rays. Turned out that he dislocated his hip and broke his tail The vet doesn't want to do surgery unless it's necessary. He is on metacam and some sort of opiate pain med. If he cannot pee/poop on his own, we will have to go for surgery. He hasn't peed/pooped since last night -- the vet emptied his bladder last night. Just waiting for him to go and checking the litter box obsessively.
I hope the poor guy won't need surgery He's isolated in my sister's room for rest at the moment. He's all doped up which makes me sad
