Cenla Cat Project: Emergency Medical Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

Veterinary care for Pyewacket, a 6-month-old kitten who had been hit by a car and suffered substantial injuries.

Pyewacket was found by a good Samaritan and surrendered to Cenla Cat Project. He had a broken rear leg, a broken pelvis, and a severe inguinal hernia. His veterinary bills were more than $4,000. With help from our Facebook community and an Emergency Medical Grant from the Petfinder Foundation, his medical treatment was covered.

Pyewacket has been one fortunate feline. His luck began when a good Samaritan reached out to Cenla Cat Project (CCP) and we agreed to take him. How could we not find a way to help this little 6-month-old Siamese mix who purred the whole time he was being examined?

We were told that he would need major surgery and time to heal. His luck continued when the Petfinder Foundation and our Facebook community rallied to cover his veterinary expenses. He had to be kenneled for six weeks after his surgery to heal, and he continued to offer purrs for his caretakers.

We knew Pye would find his home quickly once he was healed and put up for adoption. We didn’t realize it would happen within two hours of being posted! This handsome boy found a great family. He has a kitty brother at home and two children who love him. His parents are spoiling him, which makes us happy. We are ever so grateful for his recovery and adoption.
