What We Do Every Day
The Battle to Save Borris...
1/24/08 Borris: Found on someone's porch, almost frozen do death, emaciated, dehydrated and very sick.
Fortunately, he was brought to us so we immediately attended Borris medically and with lot's of love. We cleaned him, hydrated him, medicated him and held him. After his ordeal he relaxed on a heating pad, actually tried to purr.
He survived his first night and did much better the next day. We started force feeding him and he started to walk to the cage door to greet us, very weak, but full of the will to live.
UPDATE - 01/29/08
1/29/08: Only a few days after being close to death, Borris recovered remarkable! He is eating on his own, his URI cleared and he is the most grateful, loving creature! Soon he is ready for his forever home!!!
UPDATE - 02/26/08
The Battle to save Borris was lost for us. After finding his way to Animalkind, Borris got soo much better, he eat and purred and even had a home waiting for his recovery. Unfortunately within hours his conditions worsened so much that he was rushed to the emergency vet. He died right there, sudden and unexpected. It was revealed that he had a leak in his bladder that caused an septic reaction of his body-our beloved special Borris left us too soon. We are mourning this brave soul who went through so much, the only comfort we have is that he was loved in the two last weeks of his short life.
