Hello!
I have been feeding a cat since she was born in my garden a year ago, she has broken her back leg and the paw is now facing up!

After weeks of trying, I managed to get her to follow me into my flat, but she is going crazy.

I live in Palestine and there are no animal shelters around.

I'm sure she'll die if she stays outside, but I feel like I am torturing her keeping her indoors, she is clawing at the door to get out. She probably needs the toilet but she won't use the litter tray.

I can't get near her, let alone pick her up to put her in the tray, I don't know how else I could toilet-train her.

I hope to keep her indoors long enough to heal, assuming the vet can save her leg.

Any advice would be welcome!

Thanks!

Only the vet can tell you the best treatment for the cat. If it is that crooked, I would think that only surgery to re-break it and repair it would work - a big problem with a feral who can't be touched, because casts need replacing, there is wound care, etc.
Amputation might be the best option of all. Cats adjust very well to 3 legs. However, I wouldn't put a 3-legged feral back on the streets.
Thank you for helping her; most people wouldn't. This is not a simple case.
