1574257844803.png Claire neither You or Dave should feel guilty-it was an ACCIDENT! You both reacted quickly and got him medical help immediately. Maybe if he comes home to you today-either you or Dave can bring your Mom over to see him-it would be good for BOTH of them as I'm sure he miss's his Mom and she would help him feel better(just a thought) :hug8: :hug8: :hug8: :hug8: :hug8: :hug8:

Dave told her she knows things happen. He said she sounded upset, but knows he will be okay after he told her how he appeared when we saw him before we left.

So I am going to call her now. Please give me the strength for this call.

I just talked to her. As a Mother's love is, she felt horrible for us. She was more concerned about us and how bad we both feel. But she knows he has nothing broken, no other damage other then the bruised lung lobe.

She was going to call them to see how he's doing. She didn't want to go to see him later. She wants him to stay here with me incase he needs any meds. If he doesn't need anything like that, I will bring him to her Friday so he can recover with her in his quiet home.

I will be heading over to see her after 12 I have to pick up her order from the bakery.

Geez I need a drink! I am going to get some Bailey's for my coffee tonight!

Thank you guys. My Mom called them. We will get an update at noon. She knows he is not critical, that they told her.

She still feels so bad for us. I have never had anything like this happen. My pets are doted upon. I make sure everyone is in the house, especially the cats. I always have been this way. Cats love to explore, some love to try to get outside. He is one of those curious kind.

I live with no room for error with my pets. I am better, but still feeling like I failed him. Failed to ensure he wouldn't get out and he got hurt. Had he been killed, I don't know how I would have been able to live with that.

He surely has 8 more lives to go!

When you pick him up, can you swing by to show Mom?

Your mom is truly awesome.

I just stop by a minute ago to see him hes comfortable hes very loopy my mom didn't want to go to see him because she didn't want him to wanna go home with her.

I met the vet who owns the emergency hospital in he said the cat should be just fine right now they are weaning him down on the oxygen levels to see how he does on his own.

You'll go home but he will have pain medication he told me about a fentanyl patch that he can use on his foot for 5 days.

Really?

I thought cats licked constantly....
I never knew this existed either but it actually is a good thing because then nobody has to make him uncomfortable trying to give him a pill. And if he goes home to my mother on Friday she will not have to give them any pain medication.

All very good news!! I also live with no margin of error for my pets, but as I’ve learned recently all living things are variables, even in a tightly controlled environment. I’m so glad JJ is pulling through!

I am mad, crushed all at the same time! Mad the door wasn't latched shut. Angry that he got hurt, he is her everything. So he's not going home to her. Now I have to tell her he's in the ER. She was so excited he was coming home tomorrow. What a let down. I do not think he was run over, maybe knocked by the front tire, and rolled over by the plastic air damn under the car.

I will be up at 6 am and will call to check on him. He meowed at us, his eyes were normal and bright.

Just praying his lung begins to heal tonight. We are lucky, they didn't say critical, but it can worsen overnight. God please hear my calling that my little brother will be okay.

I feel like a failure. I know accidents happen. It shouldn't have happened!
The fact that he is still here is a great sign. Prayers up for a full recovery. Accidents happen. I know how you feel. I was beating myself up when Bella injured herself. It is hard not to feel awful but it is truly not your fault. You did not throw JJ in front of the car. He got out.

I understand your feelings of responsibility and guilt. If your mom is anything like you , kind and compassionate (I'm pretty sure she is) she will be forgiving and understanding ,this was an incident that was out of your control. All is well after all, JJ is thankfully ok.

You are correct. As diligent as we are, accidents happen even though I am having a hard time accepting this.

I accept the fault even though I simply don't want to!

I am who I am because of my Mom. She loves the cat, but loves us more and feels terrible for us. I am just like my Mom! She raised me right, instilled the core of who I am and the respect I have for others as well as my love for our living treasures.

I'm glad to hear he's going to be ok. You know... it's one of those things. The things that even with the most dedicated care an "event" is just going to happen. We cannot be perfect in every way all the time. I think you should be breathe a sigh of relief and have a few of those Bailey's.. though I've been known to be cheap and buy the McCormicks Irish cream... the calming effect was just the same!

I am very broken by this. The hurt I feel today isn't wearing off. I saw him, he was very loopy. I am just sad, and downright bummed. I talked to the Vet at 4. He's off oxygen, they are keeping an eye on him. If he can come home it won't be til 8 or 9 pm.

He might have to stay til tomorrow. I just wish he was here. I have never in a very long time feel this defeated almost.

No, I didn't buy Bailey's or any other brand if Irish Whiskey. I might tomorrow, today I tried to concentrate on things for Thanksgiving. More to buy still. Saving it for tomorrow. I was trying to pass time waiting on them to call and shopped nearby. Then I reminded myself to go home to let the dogs out.

Now I wait for the ER Vet from last night call when he gets in.
