Dozens of Suffering Farm Cats Needed Help - 24 Sept 2008

Animalkind received an urgent call from concerned neighbors who drove by a farm and saw a number of kittens, blinded by infections, sitting in the middle of the road. The kittens seemed to be disorientated and emaciated.

The concerned neighbors called the the Humane Society for help, but were referred to Animalkind. Of course, we and our vet, Dr. Elaine Tucker of Round Top Animal Hospital, went right away to help these suffering creatures. We found over 30 cats and kittens, many un-altered and sick with Upper Respiratory Infections.

Two litters of kittens were discovered blinded by eye infections and starving -- not able to smell or see. We took 24 cats and kittens that first day -- all went to Round Top Animal Hospital where Dr. Tucker attended them late into the night. One had a urinary blockage -- all were sick and needed medical treatment.

With no other place to take them, eight adults were released back to the farm after altering/ vaccinating and recovering. Medication for the cats was left at the farm.
The others are still in need of medical care and remain hospitalized. Thank You Dr. Tucker!!

The medical cost and spay/neuter treatment will run into the thousands of dollars -- PLEASE HELP and make a DONATION TODAY! Thank You!!


Dr. Tucker tends to the over 24 cats and kittens taken from the farm site, giving them needed medications, nourishment and examination.....
