ROMEO – His Owners No Longer Wanted Him and His Eye Needed to be Removed

8/5/21 – Prayer Warriors Needed – This is Romeo. This little guy has been going through so much and he is now on his way to one of the best veterinary hospitals in our area – Orion Animal Hospital, Lake Orion, MI. Last Wednesday Romeo’s founder contacted me and said Romeo was in desperate need of our help. A couple of days before a cat showed up at her home; he had on a collar and a phone number. The finder called the number and the person who answered was told that they found a kitty with their number on the collar. The owner said that they got “rid of the cat” and then hung up on the finder. The kitty took off that night and 2 days later came back to the young couple’s home with the eye damage. The couple took Romeo in and brought him to an emergency hospital where they did minimum care and advised that the eye needed immediate removal but because the couple didn’t have much money nothing much was done, not even pain meds to hold him over until the couple could get help. When I saw the photo of Romeo, I immediately begged and pleaded with one of our vet partners and arrangements were made to get him in for pre-surgery yesterday and surgery today. But then yesterday, the couple, with only one car, was in a car accident and their car was totaled. Consequently, yesterday’s pre-visit was not made and today, because of a mix-up and unbeknownst to all of us, the surgery was cancelled. This, after our good friend Debra B. went from St. Clair Shores to Lincoln Park and back to Macomb County to bring Romeo for his surgery.The hospital that was to do the surgery could not schedule again until next week and there was no way this poor baby could wait. He had suffered enough and now he was still in the car after over one hour, crying, and rubbing his damaged eye. I was determined to get him into a hospital today. My next option was to beg for help from the best at Orion Animal Hospital. And I can’t thank them enough because although the doctor is not in today, she asked us to take Romeo to her hospital today where he will spend the night and she, Dr. Zalac, will fit him in tomorrow for surgery. My only other option would have been to have Debra and Romeo sit in a car for possibly hours in hopes we could get into the emergency hospital.So, please pray for Romeo that he can at least be somewhat comfortable through the night and that his surgery will be successful tomorrow. The rescuer and I are at least comforted knowing he is in a hospital setting with a wonderful, caring staff. I’ll be sure to update later. It certainly takes a village and we are blessed to have people like Debra and a few others in our circle always willing to drop everything to help. – diana4paws1heart.org/donations/2,993People reached677Engagements
