Last week I posted about an urgent call I received from the shelter regarding a 5 week old kitten with injuries that would require him to either be euthanized or immediately rescued. (You can read the story here. ) Fortunately for this little angel, we had an awesome foster Mom on standby who literally hopped in her car, picked him up and took him right to the vets.
"BooBoo's" injuries were severe. (Turns out HE is a SHE) She had a huge laceration from around her abdomen and down her leg. The vet said the injury was do deep that there was dirt in her muscle tissue and her leg may not be salvageable:
We couldn't walk away from her despite the cost and I don't think anybody else could either. She deserved to live. Then again - they all do.
