At first she was alarmed by what was happening, but my calm quickly calmed her. She didn't seem to be in pain unless she moved. So I asked her to sit still on the sofa and watch cartoons while I prayed for her.
Within a few minutes, our family cat came in to where I was praying and begged for my attention. She was dragging one leg behind her, laid herself down in front of me and looked up with pleading eyes, appearing to ask for help.
