Just an update on rudy. got him home this morning.. i was shocked to see how badly he was hurt. They shaved the areas around his back end and tail. He had to have 15 sttitches.. doctor thinks it was a dog.. iam pretty sure i know i was a cat that i see everynow and again. I brought him home and he seems ok.. except he started chewing on his sttiches and pulled one or two out.. i managed(don't ask me how) to get an e collar on him and he seems to be dealing with it ok.. he eats fine with it and is now napping with his head hanging over the couch.. i was lucky.. he could of been more seriously injured.. I have such guilt looking at him as i feel it was my fault for letting him out. But i learned from my mistake and am looking at building them a a pen of some sort..
thanks for all the input once again
