Copper – She Was Found in the Middle of a Dirt Road, Encrusted in Dirt and Mud

3/6/19 – The world of animal advocacy is filled with many ups and downs. Yesterday, I received the sad news about Violet and just a little later received this very happy update about Copper. Just to remind everyone, here is Copper’s story when she was initially rescued in November, 2018:
“My co-worker found Copper in the middle of a dirt road (of County Line Rd.) on her way to work two weeks ago. She thought he was dead in the road but then saw him move so she stopped and picked him up and brought him to work. When she told me about him and said he was out in her car I went out to see him. His face was covered in mud and grass, eye’s almost completely closed with infection and mud. Mud was up his nostrils and green drainage coming out as well from infection. His right eye was severely swollen open. The blades of grass were stuck to his open eyeball. He was lethargic and just wanted to sleep. After a day of medicine and kitten formula he perked up significantly.”
After visits to the vet and treatment for all of Copper’s medical needs, Copper’s eye was eventually removed after it ruptured. When he was rescued, he was only 1.74 lbs. so he had to wait for the eye surgery. Today he is much loved and lives with two cats and one senior dog who is blind. His rescue mom tells us that the dog and Copper love playing and chasing each other. Here are Copper’s photos when he was found and how he is today. May God Bless the rescuer. ~ diana
