Elephant Hawk-moth larva

Deilephila elpenor

Description:

An Elephant Hawk-moth larva, our cat brought in our front door...I took it away and placed it in a box, it seems it's hurt by the cat's teeth or nails and some "fluids" are visible inside the box...How possible is it for the caterpillar to survive such an attack? Update: It didn't survive :(
