Someone hit a cat in California recently. What was unusual was the driver got out of the car, a good sign you might think? But what the driver did next was place the still living cat on the side of the road and drive off!
Please note before reading further some people may find the images in this post disturbing!
Not rushing the cat to the vet, just placed the cat on the side of the road, leaving the injured animal there to die on its own. Thank goodness someone else saw what happened, because they called the Stray Cat Alliance and one of their team rushed to the scene to try and save this poor cat.
And save him they did, though badly hurt he was still very much alive. He had blood running from his nose and lots of broken bones, he must have been in a lot of pain. The vet relieved his suffering and he was given the name Oscar.
He is still in shock but his vital signs are stable, he just refuses to give up the fight for life. Because of this, the Stray Cat Alliance is doing all that they can to save him. He does have quite bad head trauma though so a CT scan was done and results are pending.
