Cat with Nasty Neck Wound…is this abuse??January 20, 2010 at 3:19 pm | Posted in Animal Abuse, Animal Rescue | 7 Comments
My area Town Council Property Manager alerted me of someone reporting a very injured cat on the 2nd floor of a HDB block. Rushed down and saw an extremely emaciated cat…fully awake but weak and not moving at all. Her neck and shoulders had a huge gaping hope and you can practically see the insides! I can’t even started imagining the pain she was going through. She was immediately rushed to the vet.
The strange thing is all the cats within a 5 block radius of where I live are sterilised. I don’t recognize this cat at all and she’s not sterilised. Her temperament is extremely mild, a friendly and trusting cat, suggesting that she’s either once a home cat or a cat that has alot of association with humans. Could this be abuse? Did she fall prey to an abuser because of her trusting personality?
The wound is now stitched up and very slowly healing. She’s still on drip because she’s very skinny and weak. Her gums are pale, so blood tests will be run. The healing process should take a while, considering how emaciated she is. She’s currently still hospitalized.
I would like to appeal for kind samaritans to contribute with funding the medical for this cat. After she recovers, the balance funds will be used to cover her boarding costs at the farm. I don’t think that she will be in any state to go back to the streets. Why not let her live a good life, out of harm’s way, with furry friends at the farm?
To contribute for her bills, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
P.S. I’m really grateful and impressed by the new Town Council Property Manager in my estate.
