Do you know where your cat is?

My friend’s cat was hit by a car two weeks ago. 

Mimi is a very sweet cat.  You probably  know her—she is the cat that doesn’t go far off the property, not really; all the neighbours watch out for her; she’s too smart to be on the road when a car comes by, and it’s a quiet street, anyway—that cat.

Mimi’s pelvis was broken, her leg mangled. 

They hoped that her leg could be saved, but it was apparent that she was going to be in constant pain for the rest of her life, and so the best thing to do was to amputate. With the amputation, two weeks of semi-immobility to allow her pelvis to heal, and veterinary bills equivalent to a nice European holiday for two, Mimi is close to being her old self.
