Owner Didn’t want injured Kitten!

Badly Injured Kitten was dropped off at a Low Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic.

Owner said they didn’t want her!

Hill Country Animal League in Boerne, Texas is a low cost spay/neuter clinic, not a shelter. That didn’t stop a person from entering the clinic to drop off an unwanted kitten. The kitten was suffering from multiple conditions, including dehydration and chronic starvation. The most alarming one was the horrible wound on her backside. Left untreated the wound became infected and abscessed. Sarabi_HCAL_3

Despite all the pain, all the strange sights and sounds, the little kitten was calmly sweet. Thankfully Texas Animal Guardians Director, Penny Solis was there to accept the kitten. The HCAL team began immediately to treat her wound. After that, she was placed on IV fluids and given a high-calorie, high protein diet.

Texas Animal Guardians put out a notice on Facebook requesting our FB friends to name her. The winning choice was Sarabi. After that, she became known as Queen Sarabi and things Sarabi_HCAL_2started going uphill for the previously unwanted kitten. She has since been adopted into a wonderful home.

Eye Infection Causes Kitten to Lose Eye

Twiggy

Kitten was Hopeless, Starving and Needing Medical Help

Twiggy and her litter mates were living in an RV park off the kindness of people who are not much better off than they are. All were suffering from chronic upper respiratory infection and all had various forms of eye infections. Unfortunately, Twiggy’s eye ruptured and she needed immediate urgent care. We did our best to help these kittens and their cousins with antibiotics but helping that many requires quite a lot of money. Therefore we had to select the ones requiring the most immediate care. In this case it was Twiggy. Twiggy went on to recover and she was transferred to our adoption program. Thankfully someone overlooked her physical defect and focused on her sweet personality. She lost an eye but gained a whole new, wonderful life.
