8 Lives Left...

Well, they say that a cat has 9 lives. I definitely believe that it is true after what happened to our cat yesterday. Our cat Chaz, he is about 3 years old now, is such a friendly, mellow cat. He is mostly an indoor cat and sometimes he will happen to sneak out the front door when we are busy loading up our many kids. Yesterday when we were getting ready to go meet Mark's mom at Mario's for dinner, was one of those times that he happened to sneak out. We were all loaded in the car and started backing down the driveway when we heard (and felt) a thud. We didn't think anything of it until we saw Chaz bolt towards the front door. My husband and Tyler jumped out of the car immediately and ran over to him. I have to admit, by the way he was acting we thought for sure he had internal injuries. He was just laying there, his leg looked mangled and he had a blank stare on his face. Well lets just say, plans changed. My husband, Kiely and Tyler jumped back in the car with Chaz and rushed him over to the vet. On the way there he was panting and Tyler thought he was going to die. When they got to the vet they immediately put him on oxygen and an iv. They then took him back for x-rays. We were preparing ourselves for the worst...but luckily when the doctor came out to review the x-rays there was no internal bleeding or damage. Unfortunately though he isn't 100%. He does have a paralyzed front leg which the doctor advised us not to amputate because cats will sometimes regain feeling and he has not been able to make it to the bathroom on his own yet. We are hoping that he will make a full recovery but do not know yet. We will keep everyone updated.
