Meet Nebula the terribly abused cat that landed at NY ACC a couple of weeks.
We just cannot imagine the pain and suffering this kitty has endured, his entire body was purposely burned with a chemical, due to that he has holes all over his body. To add to the cruelty and abuse, he was forcefully kicked and suffered tremendous blows to his head, has a broken jaw, broken teeth, a ruptured eye and an ulcer on the other eye which our vet believes it could also be due to the trauma and an broken nose. Like if all of the above isn’t enough there are a zillion of things going on with him internally also due to all of the above, one of the issues being non-regenerative anemia.
The minute we learned about him, we pulled him at once and thanks to some amazing people we know his rescue and transport to destination was possible. Sadly ACC informed us that he could not leave ACC until his stray hold was up so we had to wait for that to complete that was on a Friday afternoon. Then we were informed that the Alliance could do the transport until Monday. We couldn’t wait so we called for reinforcement and asked Imagine Home to put the word out, they did and we did too. Thankfully our friend Brook Smith stepped up, went to pick him up and took him all the way to Doctor Marsh’s where he will remain until further notice. From there HPR amazing foster Mom Kathleen Keller will take over his day to day care. Before I continue I will like to express my sincere that to all mentioned above for your amazing efforts and dedication to help Nebula, you all rock! Shortly after his arrival at Greenfield, we received this e-mail from Doctor Marsh: Hello Celene, Sorry that I can't give you a great synopsis today, but I did take a quick look at Nebula. She appears stable for the weekend and is eating, but it is a challenge for her due to facial deformity and congestion. She has clear evidence of trauma to her maxilla with fractures and a ruptured left eye as well as some kind of chemical burn that has already done a majority of its healing. She has sneezing fits of bloody/pus like mucous from her nostrils. She is very thin. He has a very long hill to climb but is very sweet. Talk to you on Monday. Andrew Marsh
Monday Oct. 02. I receive a call from Marsh with a plan & the office also sent a video. When i saw the video I just could not help but just burst into tears. To see Nebula "forgive" humans despite the inflicted torture, inflicted injuries and the pain and suffering that he endured and terrible abuse, just gave me so much pain in my heart that i cannot really describe or put into words. Despite all that he endured, he has a strong will to live, all he wants is to be loved all he wants is to purr in content, he is happy to be alive and so darn grateful to have been rescued. As of now he has a terrible URI and bloody discharge so the plan is to get that under control before going into deeper diagnostics and surgery. His one eye needs to be removed, his other eye is ulcerated, it is unclear if the ulcer is from the trauma or from something else at this time. He has suffered a tremendous blow to the jaw, skull & nose and so an MRI is needed in a week or so to determine the extent of the damage. A consult with an internal medicine veterinarian is already in the works. His teeth that are broken need to be pulled and we are hoping that with good food and TLC from his wonderful foster Mom his anemia will resolve in due time. He has a long road ahead of him but his love for humans and will to live is so there & that alone will play a huge roll in his recovery.
One thing is for sure he is in the best hands at Greenfield with Doctor Marsh and once he get into foster he will get nothing but VIP treatment over there. I am waiting for Doctor Marsh to put the estimate together and send. Once I receive it I will post.
