    Somebody save me

    Wow that was dramatic right? o.o
    Anyways I got two questions.
    So I injured myself on Saturday by jumping out of a moving vehicle and got the crap beaten outta me despite landing half through glass. Tom Cruise would be so disappointed. But I digress! So my hand is in blunt terms "fucked up" and my boss was super pissed when I told him I had to take time off per my doc's orders [that and I pulled a ligament in my knee and was practically bawling while this happened because I was reading The Fault in Our Stars] but getting back on track. Boss is pissed and I'm thinking that I won't have a job when I'm better. He wouldn't be able to fire me would he?

    Second: I have a calico cat?
    I think it's a she, there's nothing indicating that I am wrong in that assumption and she's so tiny and I fed her. I'm an animal lover so I couldn't help it when she started meowing [Which she hasn't stopped, by the way. Is that normal?] Since I have never have had a cat before I gave her Tuna and water but what the hell should I feed a underfed, perhaps still a kitten (No more than a year and a half max?)
    Pictures:

    Any help, advice, guidance and I would so appreciate it folks.

    @Jager
    I think I can help with the second one.
    I had a kitty who did this when she was was in heat.
    She would stand at my front dooor and make the most annoying meowing sounds until I let her out.
    Took her to the vet, and he basically told me she was just trying to get some.
    As for feeding it, pretty much anything it will eat right now would be good if its really under weight.
    After she gains some weight, regular old kitty food should work good.

    As for the first question, I'm not 100% sure but I think they could fire/let you go, mainly because the accident was not work related.
    However with this I'm not sure.

    Omg. Why did you have to jump out of a vehicle like that? Were you trying to get away from someone? I hope you're alright, that must have been terrifying.

    I'm no cat expert myself, but I assume it must have something to do with the fact that it wants something from you - whether it be food or attention - as according to this article: http://pets.webmd.com/cats/guide/cats-excessive-meowing

    Funnily enough the past week a stray cat has taken a liking to our family and has pretty much marked our house as its territory. It regularly sunbathes on our front porch, and today it came right up to our backyard and is now lying right in front of our glass door as we speak. We fed it a ton of chicken and fish and gave it some water, but it didn't feel like coming indoors so...no idea. Guess we're just friendly free food buckets right now. LOL.

    Anyways, good luck with your calico. ♥

    Should've said that she is outside. She is NOT inside. I don't know what she has and I have dogs and don't need to moderate a WWIII of the species. Especially since I still am hurting.
    @Lorn
    No I was told to "Get the fuck out" person wouldn't press on the brake and instead I "jumped" out. My moment of Jackass has been completed. Lesson learned. Terrifying not so much besides painful. Thank you hon though <3

    Yeah well I was walking to the mailbox and my mom was up the street cutting tree limbs and bam this little thing started coming towards me and meowing. My dad said the words "This is now your cat, don't kill her." -.- Lovely.

    @Jager, the first question is dependent on where you live. I know that where I live, termination requires a specific advance notice depending on how long you've been working there (usually 2 weeks), and the meantime must be paid at your regular rate of pay. The notice must also include a reason for termination, and if you feel it is unjust, you can sue.

    Employment standards might be different where you live though.

    the first question is completely dependent on where you live, knowing where you live would allow us to look up the laws of that state and let you know because i believe it is dependent state by state as to what you can be fired for.

    to the second question, i have no idea, id say cat food and some scraps or something if u have any instead of throwing them out but best of luck

    it also depends on how many hours you work i think honestly, plus i feel like because you jumped out of a moving car they could find some way to not bring you back because you did something super dumb

    First time I've done anything like that. It's out of character for me to do that. I work 8-9 hours 6 days a week not including the fact I stay an extra hour or two for inventory checks.
