Big fall, cat HURT!

Sorry for my English! I'm a littlebit stressed right now!

My cat fell down from a 8 meter high lightpole maybe 30-90 minutes ago.

She is limping and has a little wound on one of her legs.

I called the "emergency vet", and they told me that I should bring her to a vet tomorrow.

She screamed and made those little noises

I'm afraid she's going to die tonight.

I cannot do anything but to wait till tomorrow and then get her to the nearest vet. It may cost from 410 dollars to 570 dollars, but hello.. It's my cat. I just have to pay that bill.

I'm SO SCARED and FRUSTRATED right now

Oh no! Poor kitty!! I hope she's okay...The emergency vet couldn't see her tonight? Ours stays open all night, but I don't know how it works where you are. Is she acting okay other than her leg? Please let us know how she is doing tonight and tomorrow after her appt.
Lots of lovin' to her...

We couldn't drive anywhere tonight
I don't know how to drive a car, and my parents have been drinking, so we have to wait till tomorrow.
But the vet we called said my cat should survive the night.
But I'm so afraid. She's in pain, and she's hiding under the sofa.

I've fed her and I try to comfort her. But she wants to be alone.

My poor little kitty

You can see she's in great pain. She has eaten, but something's definitely wrong with her leg(s).

I'm gonna let you know how it turns out.

Oh, understand your situation. Poor kitty...
I will be hoping and praying for the best. I'll check tomorrow to see what the vet says.

Hi!

Here's the update:
A fracture in her leg (knee). So her leg is broken

We have to drive to another vet in Oslo (the capital of Norway) and she will need surgery.
It will cost us 2468 $.

We'll talk to the vets tomorrow, and I shall ask lots of questions.
If she's going to suffer a lot, we'll put her down

But hopefully everything will be OK.

My little poor cat

So, so sorry! How awful for both of you. I hope there's an affordable way to save her. Did the vet at least give her some pain medicine until you go to Oslo? Praying for you both! ((hugs))

Thanks!
Yeah, they gave her painkillers, so she isn't in a lot of pain right now.
We're driving to Oslo in 5 minutes!

We decided to let her go. Something was wrong with her stomach, and the vet said that they didn't know if there was anything to do.
