|Consider yourself lucky...I was dumped in the humane society by my owner after my pelvis was fractured. My owner told them I wasn't wanted anymore even though I'm 11 years old. I was in a little tiny cage in a room full of cages of cats of all kinds. I was hurting so much but everyone just thought I was scared and the shelter workers told people I would nervous wet if anyone tried to touch me. Nobody noticed how much I was hurting until this lady came in and after saying she wanted to adopt this big tabby and white cat in the corner (even though he has had cystitis before), she started looking around at all the other cats. My guardian angel must have done something wonderful, because that lady came over to my cage and just looked at me and then went and looked in another room full of cats but then she came back and said she wanted me too. She told the shelter people for some reason she just felt she HAD to take me too.
Now although I still have a lot of pain, I'm in a much more comfortable place which the lady set up to make it easy for me to go to my litter pan and eat and drink. I have my choice of two beds, one with a heating pad to make it warm and another one without heat right beside it. I hope I heal soon though, because I've heard the lady say to someone on the phone that if I keep having so much pain, she will take me to the vet to see what can be done. Thing is, my fracture wasn't taken care of when it happened, my previous owner dumped me after it happened, and my new owner worries about the fact that I'm 11 years old and a bit...hmmm...obese, which makes surgery more risky too.
So consider yourself lucky, your owner cared about you. At least you didn't get dumped in a shelter because you had your pelvic fracture!!!
