 CAT ATTACK!HELP!!One dead One injured

My boyfriends cat attacked two of our gliders early this morning and killed our Pie he also got a hole of our Lelo and she was bit o the head and neck she has been eating grapes and her daily nutrition bar and drinking fine.she stumbles around a bit when she walks and climbs.her right front arm is possibly hurt and shes a little cold,super snuggly when i pet her and with her sister Syd,but i dont want to handle her to much more to see if theres anything else and stress her out more then she is.im just not quite sure what all i can do to help her survive

Lelo is doing well i have her on lots of vitimans and minerals and fruits and such gaining a little weight along with Syd c: shes using her arm normally and running around her whell with her sister. Her head wound is scabbing and doesnt look infected at all. She hasnt fully gotten her voice back but im not sure will concidering Shadow bite her neck as well,that healed up within a few days,looked more like a scratch then punctured like her head.hopefully a full recovery soon tho!

Yea im aware cat saliva is very dangerous to surgar gliders,we gave her a rinse down with luke warm water as soon as we got her,dried her off and snuggled.ive been making sure shes drinking lots of water and eating nutrient tablets for them with fruits and protein mush,i also gave them worms and apples.She doesnt shake hardly any now,just when shes eating the cold food,she lays down while she eats tho i told my boyfriend it would be best to at least get her arm looked at,my Boyfriend said Lelo say her crawling and jumping across the cage around 9 am, Syd and her snuggled for most of the day but our in separate punches now. Ive noticed she still hobbles while crawling on the bottom of the cage and she holds her arm in against her chest a lot,ive touched it and rubbed it now and theres a sharp point on the shoulder blade,i think she held on to a bar and got yanked to hard by the cat but we didnt see the attack so we dont know what happened or how they got out we have the cage pretty well secured so they cant squeeze out and we dont have a lot of money for the vets right now. we get paid the 11th so were waiting and taking care of her extra while trying to find a local vet thats decent and good with gliders.

cat bites are always dangerous to gliders, even if the wounds themselves may seem minor, it's the infection which is the real danger since cat teeth and claws inject bacterias deep inside the wounds. I'd suggest to bring her to the vet in order to have her checked and given antibiotics, even if she seems fine for now.

its been about 13 hours and Lelo has been doing so great! shes such a strong girl. im still worried about her hobbling tho,her arm is usable but it feels more pointy then her other shoulder area and she wont let me touch it for to long with pressure, she climbs up and down the cage but shes slow and acts as if shes disoriented.
