Cat Tales Rescue: Emergency Medical Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
It is for a few of our special-needs kittens who had to have emergency surgery. We had Rowdy, who had both eyes removed; Bandit, who also had both eyes removed; and Toby, who had his leg removed.
We are a very small non-profit and we have taken on more special-needs kitties and ones who have needed extreme medical care, including surgeries. Two had both eyes removed, one had a leg removed, two had one eye removed, and now we have one who needs a wheelchair because she has swimmer's syndrome.

Rowdy was found in the middle of the road. It was amazing that she was not killed by a car, as she could not see. Rowdy’s eyes were ulcerated out of her head. She had to have both eyes removed immediately. She has since been adopted and is now living her best life (first photo).
