When the Baltimore shelter got in these three kittens in awful condition today, they knew who to call!
Animal Control had responded to a hoarding situation in Baltimore, Maryland where well over 20 cats were living in deplorable conditions. These three kittens needed urgent care for severe eye infections and required immediate rescue
. A shelter employee notified FRA and fortunately Diana went charging to the rescue and got them to our vet.
Little Blind Mouse #1 - Puddle. The smallest is a brown tabby girl whose left eye has already ruptured. Her right eye also maybe non-functioning at this point. She is about 5 weeks old and is very underweight and dehydrated.
Little Blind Mouse # 2 is Paige -- a black and white tuxedo whose left eye is ruptured. There is also severe inflammation in the right eye, but we are hoping it can be saved. She is also underweight and is about 7 - 8 weeks old.
The third Little Blind "Mouse" is Posey, a black female. She also has severe inflammation in her right eye which will probably heal but have some scarring. Her left eye is also inflammed and she is around 7 - 8 weeks as well.
All three kittens were seen at the Animal Hospital at Southgate who were so kind to accomodate us on a very busy Saturday at short notice. All three kittens are receiving antibiotics, eye ointment, other medications and high calorie food as well as plenty of TLC from their foster mom (who also fostered Coraline, our last blind kitten!)
The Feline Rescue Association is very hand-to-mouth and it is only through the generosity of people like you that we can help kitties like the Three Blind Mice. Please give what you can -- these poor girls have a long road ahead!
