OPIE – Update – Surgery Completed

Update: Sorry but i misunderstood the hospital’s message. Opie had surgery today and he weighed enough to be neutered and vaccinated. He is doing great and he is reported to be a little doll.9/17/21 – Prayers for little Opie.

He may be around 9 weeks old and was rescued from a “very bad situation”. There were approximately 11 kittens in the home which had trash, feces, etc. all over the home. Two kittens were rescued, Opie was one of them because he appeared to have a degloved lip. Thankfully, our good friends at Comforts Place was able to get Opie in almost immediately and he is scheduled for surgery tomorrow. Also, the doctor found that the poor kitten actually has more than a degloved lip, he has a degloved chin. According to Healthline.com “degloving, also called avulsion, is a type of severe injury that happens when the top layers of the skin and tissue are ripped from the underlying muscle, connective tissue or bone.”. Please remember this very sweet, little guy in your prayers. 4 Paws 1 Heart will make sure his medical needs are met and will help with any of his housemates who are rescued. – diana.
