Last word on this: I document every cat I TNR and RESCUE. Pictures and locations. Its all here on this blog.
These animals I feed each day are so grateful. "Here comes that nice lady to feed us again. She is so nice. She takes care of us - she feeds us, she gives us warm little boxes to go inside when its really cold out, and she gets us help when we need it." I swear, this is what they say! :)
The little kitten Cloe, who I rescued Sunday on Second Street went to the clinic yesterday, along with the other remaining four kittens from Trust Street for wellness check (shots), and a diagnosis of her little lump on one side of her back end and a hole on the opposite side. The doctor said she has two very deep large puncture wounds on her lower back, as if a large animal bit her - the holes are on each side of her body. The abscess was drained and was deep also, down to the muscle, and the vet did the best she could. She is in a tremendous pain. She was actually shaking this morning as she lay there. I am the WORST at helping sick animals. I can't even figure out how to tie the collar she is supposed to wear so that she does not lick her wounds. poor thing. Her treatment was estimated at $150, and that did not include the kittens wellness charge at $35 per kitten. This is an expensive business I am in. Thank you to the few who have made donations this past week for the TNR's. I am close to being 'out of business' even though I have reserved spots for each Tuesday through September for TNR.
Thats it again, in a nutshell. Please say a prayer for Cloe that she heals soon.
Have a good day.
