First priority must be given to a vet visit as that's what any of us would hope for our pets if they were out and had gotten hurt. Then yes, she or you even (you could just say a neighbour had found a cat- just like I called the HS for George and left both our numbers etc) should call the local vets and shelters to see if anyone is looking for this poor cat, check papers and keep an eye out for flyers. There is no need to surrender the cat to the shelter, in fact ours hopes that people who call for found pets are able to foster them until owners or homes are found. At that age, she could indeed be in a situation just like George, out in a strange place and scared, just wanting to go back home. (He looked pretty rough after only being out 2 weeks... who knows how long that poor girl has been out.)
And of course if no home is found then your neighbour sounds great as her new home, as long as she doesn't put the vet visit off much longer, IMO upon finding an injured cat, the vet should be the first stop. Unfortunately it is far more likely she was dumped or left behind, :sad: but on the off chance she has a loving family sick with worry about her fearing the worst, shouldn't she at least try to find them? I know one of my fears was that someone would take George in and we'd never know what happened to him, I think that is the worst possible outcome for any missing pet. The never knowing.

I knew there was a reason I like you! You are one smart cookie my friend!! Great comments!!
