Medical Fund for Cat from Tijuana
This boy was rescued from the streets of Tijuana Mexico on May 15, 2017 after he had been purposely injured by a human and beaten in the face with some kind of an implement. It ruptured his one eye, and he's now blind in the other It also caused mouth and sinus injuries.
The people who rescued this boy also rescued our dear Drusilla (who, if you remember, was pregnant, blind, and living on the streets of Tijuana) and they took this boy immediately to their vets, but unfortunately they didn't have the funds or the vet the knowledge needed to treat him, so we stepped up to help.
This is why Milo's Sanctuary exists to help these poor souls who, through no fault of their own, don't have a human to love and keep them safe.
He’s at our vets and is holding his own, they ran blood and besides being slightly anemic and dehydrated it all looked good. They did full body x-rays and they aren't showing anything broken (thank heavens) he's very badly bruised however and has suffered severe head trauma. He can't stand or walk very well right now and the vets believe that there is swelling in his brain area because of the trauma. He's blind and the one eye will have to be removed as it's ruptured when he is more stable. They are applying a steroid eye drop to help with the inflammation and swelling. We are praying as the swelling goes down in his brain and eye that he will recover at least some of his sight.
He's AMAZINGLY sweet and makes "air biscuits" while begging for tummy rubs. He is not eating at all and they are syringe feeding him but if he doesn't start eating on his own we may have to do a feeding tube just to get him over the recovery period. He's still on IV fluids and the vets and staff just adore him. We think he looks amazingly better and he loves his big soft bed!
When we rescued him we promised him a second chance at a new life where no one will ever hurt him again. We are currently working on a name for him :) Please help us to keep that promise and donate to his ongoing medical care and thank you!
Please keep this sweet boy in your prayers he undergoes surgery today to remove both of his eyes that underwent so much damage including blinding him when he received a beating by some horrid person in Tijuana. We have done everything to try to save them but one of them ruptured and so surgery is the only option at this point.
When he arrived in the USA he was in bad shape with contusions and bad bruising all over his body and severe head trauma. He has spent two weeks in the hospital on IV fluids, antibiotics, hourly eye medications and force feeding.
He recovered his strength and slowly regained balance and started to eat on his own. Through it all this darling trusting boy loves his caretakers and does nothing but roll over for belly rubs, purring and making biscuits. He has never given up and neither have we!
As you can imagine his vet bills are much higher than first anticipated so any donations would be greatly and deeply appreciated. You can donate via the gofundme link below or through paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org just note it's for Biscuit.
We will update you once he's out of surgery and thank you!
