There’s a cat outside that I feed who was hit by a car a couple of months ago. I noticed about a month ago that her tail was just limp and she had feces matted on the back of her legs and tail. Half of her tail fell off a couple of weeks ago and I also noticed that she doesn’t seem able to control her bowel movements anymore. I find feces all over the porch and it just seems to fall right out of her. Is there anything that can be done for this cat? The humane society in my county doesn’t have the ability to help and I couldn’t afford to take her to a vet.
