My cat is missing - Eastwick (Found)

My cat, Sami, is missing from our house in Eastwick. He is two years and three months, and he is white/tabby. He is my everything. I haven't seen him since Saturday lunchtime...he usually reappears after a couple of days, but we've been all over the village and the local fields and farms.

My home number is 01279-418652

And my mobile is 07779587076

Please let me know if you have seen him or if you do, or even if you haven't yet.





Many Thanks

Jane Gallantree

I may never come to that, but even if it does, losing a leg is not the end of the world. This is my Bob.

Sounds nice. X hope it was well received... :D

First op went ok, he's got a metal plate with 7 screws in in his right back leg...his back left leg is 50/50. They need to continue treating an infection in the bone that is sticking out...he will have another op on Friday...I might not be able to see him until next week...

But so far he's doing ok..

Great thank you very much...

I was so worried I'd never see my boy again, but he's getting on well...he's young and strong...but I might not be able to see him for about a week...apparently he might get very excited (well it hasn't happened in 2.5 years lol) but I have to go by what the vets say.

The operation went well on Friday, it's hopeful...but it's going to be unsure for a while yet...he should be home tomorrow, but he will have to stay in a cage and have regular trips back to the vet...and might need a skin graft

Thank you for keeping thinking of us X

If it helps, my lad Basil came into rescue as an abandoned cat that had been hit by a car and wandering with a badly broken leg for weeks. He needed a pin, plate and frame and was on cage rest for about 15 weeks in the end whilst they tried to get the bone to set properly, and there was a strong possibility that he would lose the leg. Eventualy it did set, though at a rather awkward angle, and he has a very pronounced limp and I know it still pains him sometimes, especially when it's cold. My regular (and much trusted) vet happens to specialise in bones and he did his very best for Basil, but to be perfectly honest, both the vet and I have sometimes wondered if we did the right thing in saving the leg. I guess how much it affects him in later life remains to be seen, but the point I'm trying to make is that losing the leg is sometimes the best option for the cat, so try not to worry too much. xx

Glad the operation went well. Hope your lad continues to improve. Although the long time in a cage may seem daunting to us, our cats seem able to cope quite well. My Tilly certainly did. She had to spend 3 months in a cage after an accident but was surprisingly well behaved (and made a full recovery).

Thank you for sharing that story...so far he's doing well and they are pleased with the ops and his progress but he will have a slight limp...it will still be uncertain for a while but they are happy to try and continue saving the leg...he may end up loosing it yet, but hopefully it will heal well.

He has two plates and 12 screws in the back left leg and one with 7 screws in his right...but he is doing well and should be home tomorrow but on cage rest until further notice

...... and even with his pronounced limp, Basil has just thundered past me at high speed, chasing Daz round the house in a mad five minutes! I may worry about him, his limp and his future, but he doesn't seem too bothered! :D

I was going to add, before Tilly came and sat on the keyboard, that if you have room, you should get two cages which can be set up door to door. Sami can then have one cage for an eating/sleeping area and a separate toilet area in the other cage. You can slide a board between the two cages to clean out the litter tray whilst Sami is in the other half. If, like my Tilly, Sami is a messy eater, three cages would be even better, to have a separate eating area so food does not end up on his bed!
