I just got back from the vet. A friend of mine, Shadow, is in dire straights.
Shadow is my neighbor’s cat, and they are not here right now. I went out back this afternoon and found him in a pile near my back door. His jaw is fucked; he can’t move it. Can’t even drink. His left eye’s pupil is dialated. Severe head trauma. His breathing is labored and there is blood running from his nose due to fractures in his sinus cavity.
The vet suggested killing him. The neighbor is in Scotland, and she is losing her fucking mind right now. I am cold with rage. The vet said he was kicked in the head, extremely hard. I refuse to let my friend die in my home.
So now he is in my living room, trying to fitfully sleep. He is dosed out of his mind on animal morphine. I have been using a child’s medicine syringe to give him water laced with anti inflammatory drugs and antibiotics, a bit at a time.
I have petitioned Sekhmet to show mercy on her child and allow him to heal, and Bastet to ease his suffering. I am going to stand vigil until morning, when my neighbor makes the decision as to what is done. I may or may not abide by her ruling.
Whoever did this is already dead, they just have not moved into that reality yet. I WILL destrot this person. This is the third cat in as many months to be kicked like this. My neighbor across the street…her cat disappeared in the Spring. About a week before that, my own cat came home one night with all the whiskers on one side of his face neatly cut off. There is a sick motherfucker in the neighborhood who’s quickly shortening life is about to get very interesting.
On that note, does anyone have any specific magickal advice I can use to help my friend? I know to also call upon Marbas, Raphael, etc. But my skills as a healer are lacking, as is my base of knowledge on the subject. I am open to any and all genuine suggestions.
If anyone has any knowledge of herbs, techniques, etc I can use to help him on the physical end of things, that would also be appreciated. I have a pretty wide spread of things to work with, but I have officially reached the end of my skills.
It is my ardent will he survives the night. If he survives the night then there is a chance of recovery.
Any assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.
