Cat attacked by 5 dogs

by Kayla

My cat was attacked by 5 dogs last night. She didn’t have a lot of blood, but she did have a little blood coming from her mouth, almost like my cat had bitten her tongue or something.

I let my cat sleep through the night, and this morning she still hasn’t moved from her position. She is breathing, but my cat will not get up and move, or even lift her head up.

Do you think my cat is weak or do you think there is something wrong with her? The dogs had my cat around her neck, tail, body, everything! There were 5 of them and only my one little kitty.

Dear Kayla,

This is a situation where you should have run to an emergency veterinarian. We are not available to answer questions 24 hours a day, and even if we were, after such a vicious attack on your cat, nothing can replace emergency veterinary treatment.

If a cat has been attacked, she should be rushed to a vet as soon as possible. If you decide to wait until morning, as you had, and find that your cat is lethargic, not moving, and cannot lift her head, she needs immediate veterinary care.

If you haven't done so already, you should run to the veterinarian as soon as possible. Every second wasted could mean the difference between life and death for your cat.
