I got a text earlier this morning from the assistant manager at Petco while I was driving a transport. They heard a cry from the cat cages and discovered Emma not putting weight on one paw. They separated her into her own cage and I told them I would be in later to check on her.
I stopped by around noon and while her back leg seemed sore and she just wanted to lay in the cat bed and nap (probably due to being sore), she seemed ok.
I got a call around 4pm saying she was looking worse. I called the head of the rescue and ran over to get Emma. I met with Mona (the head of the rescue) and she agreed that Emma should be seen by a vet. I headed off to the 24 hour vet. Unfortunately, there were several other more urgent emergencies, so I sat there with her for a while. She seemed alert and fine.
However, the longer we sat there, the more concerned I got. She peed on the blanket without seeming to be aware. She got the runs twice. And she just laid there on her pink blanket. I got her back up on the table and she sat up....but with her head bent over. She looked so uncomfortable. I said something to the receptionist and a tech finally stuck her head in. They had a 1 day old puppy brought in that had been bitten by its mom. I told her I understood, but that Emma was now looking neurologic and that had me more concerned then just not putting weight on a paw (or two). They took her back and I headed home.....it is now 9:40pm and I don't know anything. But for those of you reading this, PLEASE purr and pray for her. I am worried and trying not to imagine the worst. I will try to get an update in the morning as soon as I can.
