The call came in at about 23:00. The owner had got back from a night out and his cat had ripped its front leg off. We sent the collection van ASAP. It was a fairly local call but even so we did not expect the cat to be alive.
The driver got back and was almost crying............ with laughter. She had brought the cat back for a vet check but when she got there she performed emergency first aid and reattached the leg.
Step one in emergency first aid for ripped off front leg- Un tuck the leg from the collar where it was stuck.
Step two - Tickle tummy of purring pussy cat who is looking at owner and almost hear the cat say “You plonker”
Needless to say the owner was a tad tipsy from his night out.
