'Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight.' —Albert Schweitzer
Little Miss Katie is a tiny baby kitten who was ran over by a car in the middle of Court Street on Aug/07/2009 and brought in to Lyncourt Veterinary Hospital for help. Katie has a probable broken front right arm - we fear it may need to be amputated. Her chin is literally separated and hanging. Her right eye looks banged up and swollen, but should improve with time and care. Yet despite her extensive injuries, she was so terrified she tried to crawl away from everyone who was trying to help her. After some pain meds, IV fluids, and some TLC; Katie finally trusted us enough to let me (Amy) feed her and she ate voraciously! She is currently hospitalized and awaiting final confirmation about whether her arm needs to be amputated.
Update Aug/12/2009 - Katie is doing much better, both physically and emotionally. The swelling in her eye is almost gone, and it looks like there may not be any permanent damage. Katie's jaw is healing on it's own, without surgery. The surgery to amputate her leg is scheduled for August 25th. Katie is in a cage next to Sweetness (a tortie kitty), and the two are making frinds. And she's learning to play with her cat toys!!!
Katie will have fully recovered to good health before she is available for adoption. If I don't have any luck finding her a home by the time she is ready to be released from the hospital, I will be fostering her until her forever family comes to adopt her. Katie has been through so much in her short life, and she's really only a baby! Katie deserves to have a permanent and loving home and a family to cherish her. If you think you can be that forever family, please call Amy at (315) 214-9986 to come and meet Katie.
Katie is NOT a 'Kitty Corner' kitty, this is a listing for a friend who does foster care for rescued cats. Please contact Amy at (315) 214-9986 about adoptions. All adoptions will be handled by Amy, not by Kitty Corner. Thank you.
