A Zombie Cat Shows Up

Orange strau cat

Orange stray cat

The other day an orange cat  hops up on the porch. I’m horrified at what I see and I call Jim to have him grab some kitten milk, because it’s probably the only thing the cat could eat.

The poor cat was missing half of his lower jaw and couldn’t pick up any food. Flies were buzzing around him, and his left ear and head was taken over by a large black sore. Poor guy!

Today I went out to put some food in the dish and he was there laying down in the corner. He stumbled off.

Later he came back and tried to eat food. It was so sad, he would put his head down sideways to try and scrape up some food into his half a mouth. He was all wet from his drool and the sore on his head looked even bigger. In frustration he laid back down. Then the flies wouldn’t leave him alone. I got some video, so I could show Jim and we could decide what to do.

When Jim got home he looked into the dog house and the cat was sitting in there crying to us for help.  He was no longer scared of us and wanted relief.  So sad… I called the nearest vet, got the carrier and I was able to pick him right up.

He smelled like dead flesh, rot on his legs and the huge sore on his head. His lips had been eaten away by the cancer or what ever it was.  He looked very old too. Poly-dactyl with 2 extra claws on the front feet like out Pearl, maybe a relative.

The vet was waiting for us and took him away. They were thankful that we cared enough to bring in a stray that was suffering, and they didn’t charge us anything.

Jim takes these things so hard. He said how much he really feels people should keep their cats indoors after he has seen what happens to the outdoor cats.

Imagine if he had the spoiled plush life of living indoors with out any coyotes, eagles, other cats, cars and exc.. This cat would have been a big healthy orange guy sitting on your lap and sleeping around the house, happy and purring.
