The Story

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.

Sir Robin just checked in with us from his new forever home......

Dear Mom,
I really miss you, but I am trying to be a good "soldier boy". The food is plentiful and really yummy and I clean my plate every time. This new lady feeds me 4-5 times a day. I am drinking water, using the litter box, and getting a lot of rest and quiet. I still don't understand "blankets", soft bedding, and I prefer simply the carpet. I know I let this new lady pet me a little on Thursday night when I got here but no more for now. She says it is fine, and says she is very patient, and loves me no matter what.

What an incredible ending to Sir Robin's story. He was so lucky to have survived the arrow and infection. Now he is going to live out his life in a beautiful home with two amazing ladies! Happy tails big guy. You've earned this wonderful ending. We couldn't have saved him without the help of our supporters.

Sir Robin Update 2/23/18 7:30 am

Today is the 2nd week anniversary of Sir Robin's journey to a new safe life. Just 14 days ago this big boy was extremely sick, battling a terrible infection after being subjected to being shot by an arrow. Today he is having his neutering and vaccinations. He will also get his second dose of dewormers and flea medication to make sure all the creepy crawlers are gone forever! This poor guy was infested with fleas and ear mites when we brought him to safety. We are so thankful to the community and the talented and caring vet team for the support we needed help him recover. We could not continue our mission without the donations that our supporters give. Soon he will make the next transition to a forever home!

With love and much gratitude,

Sir Robin and The St Francis Team
