I know this isn't the usual question but there are always so many users on I didn't think it would hurt to ask.
So I got my first cat about a year and a half ago, shortly after he was born. His name is Tiber and he broke his femur where it connects to his pelvis and bears weight. When we first noticed it he was meowing which he never does and was refusing to move unless to hide and wouldn't put any weight on it.
I took him to the vet where they informed me of the break and said that the surgeon wouldn't be in the office for a while so I would have to wait. We've been keeping him isolated. The first two days he was pretty drugged and wouldn't move. Now he's moving around quite a bit and is putting some weight on his leg. Is it possible that he will heal on his own? They said at the vet their was a small chance but I was in too much shock at him being injured that I didn't ask many questions. Anyone with any experience know how long it takes and the likelihood that he'll be ok without surgery?

My cat cracked a paw bone and busted its tendons because she had a fight with a dog and got her ass kicked. She was treated by the vet, had no surgery though, but had her paw/leg stabilized with smth (since it only cracked, didn't broke fully). We had her locked in a room so she recovered but with the system on, so she wasn't able to move her front paw much. After two weeks or so, we removed the bandages and all of that and she finished recovering by herself. Of course, it wasn't fully broke so she was able handle it, but in your case it's better to keep him stable until you are able to give him vet attention.0
