Luke – Needs Part of His Tail Amputated

8/30/19 – A couple of evenings ago, our friend Debra was able to catch 7 kittens who desperately needed attention. Three kittens went to expert rescuer and four went to Chance’s mom. All with the commitment that 4 Paws 1 Heart would cover medical when needed. Well, this little guy, who appears to be the runt of the litter, needed help sooner than expected. A part of his tail bone was totally exposed and needed to be seen by a doctor before it became infected. Fortunately, Luke was able to be seen within a few hours and here is the report from Chance:

“Well our Luke is home. Thankfully they were able to just numb his tail instead of the risky procedure of knocking him out when he’s sooo little. So he got his little tail numbed and docked just above where the bone was exposed and then 1 little stitch put in. Mom says she can tell he feels better already. He ate a good dinner, used the litter box and now he’s sound asleep! And you cant even tell that his tail is just a wee bit shorter then it should be, and we don’t have to worry about any infection & pain down the road. Thank you Dr. Lynch and 4 Paws 1 Heart for being there for little Luke. – Chance”luke 8:28:19luke 8:28:19===
