Even though we’ve taken in many high cost medical rescues this month, we couldn't say no to the latest request for help. A cat had been spotted over the last 5 days with an arrow in his back. A neighbor pulled the arrow out but did not take him in for medical care. We couldn’t stand the thought of this poor boy suffering one more day so one our our amazing volunteers worked her magic last night and caught him. He was immediately taken to the emergency vet.
The puncture wound on his back where the arrow had been pulled out is badly infected. He is also suffering from a second open wound on his right ear which was suspected to be caused by another arrow. Sir Robin also has two upper canines broken and infected with the nerves exposed from an additional unknown trauma. His wounds were treated and he was given pain medication and antibiotics. He is going back to the vet this afternoon.
Sir Robin is resting and eating well but is obviously in pain and is unsure yet if he is finally safe. As you can imagine, his care will be a very costly for our rescue.
We are sorry to have to ask for money again so soon, but this boy needed our help desperately. If you can't donate at this time, please just share to help his story reach more people.
