TNR gone bad (escapee cat)
I finally managed to trap a cat that's been hanging in my backyard and get her to the clinic where she was fixed, got PCN/metacam and ear-tipped. We brought her back yesterday around 4pm, got her into the cage on the porch, covered her, and she did manage to eat, take water, move her bowels and sleep for a few good long stretches.
However, about 30 minutes ago she got past us while trying to change her food and took off like a shot. She was only recovering for less than 24 hours -- I'm scared to death she's going to tear open her stitches and since it's my first shot at this, I have no idea if she's going to come back for her food or if I've now traumatized her for life. I've washed and removed the cage and put out fresh food... anyone else have any ideas or recommendations?
