Help! Cat flu eye surgery needed
Raising funds for eye surgery and treatment.Auckland
These 4 tiny kittens (weighing barely 400gm!) who are about 4 weeks old were dumped in a plastic tub in a park after dark. As you can see, they have terribly infected eyes. The infection started before they were even able to open their eyes. It’s so bad, this little guys eyes are at risk of rupturing right there in his eye sockets. They must be so painful for him.
Can you imagine how much pain he’s in? Not to mention scared from not being able to see anything.
We’ve got them all warm and safe in foster care now. At this size and age, they should still be nursing from mum, not able to eat solid foods yet. Their amazing foster mum has made a special slurry for them and they’re eating well. But there’s still a long road ahead for them.
The whole litter is going to need special treatment for their eyes to make sure they can live full and happy lives. But the little guy in the picture, who’s not much bigger than your hand, he’s likely going to need at least one eye removed, and possibly one of his siblings will need eye removal too.
We estimate the cost of surgery alone to be about $600. This doesn’t include vet visits, after care or treatment for the other kittens.
Please donate now to help these poor kittens who deserved so much better.
And make sure you desex your pets!
Rescuing stray and abandoned cats and kittens around the greater Auckland area, caring for them in foster homes, and finding their forever homes.
Use of funds
To cover the cost for eye surgery and treatment for this litter, and litters like them.
While little Rufio has made it through surgery and is on the road to recovery, we had another vet contact us yesterday about this wee girl. She was dumped and seems to have the same eye situation as Rufio. She’s off to the vet this morning to have her eye looked at and possibly removed! Poor wee girl! Please keep her in your thoughts today 😻
