After sadly being bitten by a dog, little lady is getting back to herself and dealing with the ordeal…like a lady

On Saturday afternoon my two cats, lady and Thor were playing in the garden when another dog sadly entered my garden and attacked lady. Thankfully my husband and I spotted the dog quickly and we were able to chase him (the owner sadly showed no remorse or concern, quite the opposite). Although we were able to prevent the situation escalating, lady went missing for over an hour. Lady seldom goes out and when she does she doesn't leave the garden so I was very concerned about her welfare.
