11/2/23 – A stray cat was found with her arm through her collar and it was embedded in her arm pit area. I’m sorry for the graphic photo but this is also about awareness. Her collar was cut out of her skin and her rescuer tried finding help for 10 hours. No one would help. Not even animal control. The rescuer was desperate to find help. When we were contacted we couldn’t say no, and fortunately were able to have her seen by one of our partner vets for emergency exam of the wound.
The area was surgically closed with a drain tube placed and we are hoping the skin will remain closed when sutures are removed next week. We are calling her Dottie. She was also malnourished and emaciated weighing only 4.8 pounds. This girl is lucky she didn’t lose her arm or die from infection. We still have a long road ahead and our financial situation remains critical when making decisions to help with medical. She was anemic and will also need all the basic vetting. If you would like to help Dottie the link is below. Here is her before and after pic. Thank you, Gina
