Drama @ 7AM, the worst kind!

It's 7 AM and there is already a crisis at the Wentworth house. We woke up to our normal routine of trying to rush the kids out the door to daycare/school when we get a knock on the door. Now knocks on the door are usually bad in the middle of the night but 7 AM isn't usually a good sign either. My kids answer the door (apparently I need to have the conversation about not opening the door for strangers AGAIN!) and it is our neighbor, the new one I haven't met yet. My freshly rolled out of bed look was probably a great first impression but that is beside the point. Anyways, he said he saw out cat get hit not once,not twice but three times out on our busy street. He said she ran out back. Well running is a good sign so I went out back in hopes of finding her. She was hiding behind a bush and woudn't let us get her, NOT A GOOD SIGN. So I haul the kids off to school, Emilee is hysterical. She is going on and on about how she loves that cat and all the great things they did together. OH the drama! I remember being young and how I felt about my cat too so I totally sympathize. Now, a little background on this cat... It is a great cat. It is super friendly BUT it PEES! Therefore it is now strictly an outdoor cat. I come home and the open the back door and the cat runs into the house. She appears to be okay, but come on she was hit three times!!! She is now under the bed in my bedroom. The dilemma: Do I take this cat to the vet and spend lots of money on a cat that pees all over my house? Do I put the cat down and have to look at the faces of my poor heart broken kids? Or is there anything even wrong with the cat? I don't know!!! I will keep you all posted on what happens. TO BE CONTINUED!

I'm so sorry...this sounds horrible! I hope your cat will be alright. Dr. Winters at Countryside is excellent.
