Can you bring her in the house and keep her there so that you can keep a close eye on her. Maybe she's just emotionally traumatized, but may have unseen injuries.

Poor kitty.

I'd keep her inside with a litterbox and something yummy she will eat until her owners come home. IMO, even an outdoor cat needs to be in at night at her age.

12 is a senior citizen in the cat community, I'd be pretty worried about her being out, though my last 2 didn't transition to being fully indoor cats until they were around 13 or 14. It could just be emotional trauma, but just because you don't see an injury, doesn't mean there isn't one. Keep a close eye on her, and I'd suggest keeping her in. If she doesn't improve, I'd seek the input of a vet.

Thanks for the replies guys im keeping a very close eye on her she seems to be off her food although she has had some cream I gave her.Even though she's not my cat I feel really attached to her she's so sweet and I would be devistated to think she's hurt.I'll post some pics of her if theres somewhere to post them.Thanks again for your help

hey,just to let you guys know, pebbles is alot better she's starting to act normal again and is even going back to where she was attacked although you can see she is very edgy when shes there.so it looks like it was just the trauma thanks for the help again I'll make sure something like that never happens again.

Thanks for the update on Pebbles. It's always nice to hear when things are working out.
