Attacked by a Hawk

Pet Patrol is an entirely volunteer-run, non-profit cat rescue organization in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. All our cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and any health concerns are addressed before they are available for adoption. Please visit our website for more information about our charity.

My name is Zane, and I have quite a story to tell!
I found myself living outside, just
my sister with me, and we were lucky enough to find a big deck to use as
shelter. It was attached to a house, and it was surrounded by wide open
fields and on one side a forest. There was quite a distance to travel
for little cats, and we knew to take shelter at dusk as that is when the
coyotes would come out of the woods. There is not much shelter in the
open fields, and it was quite frightening. When we popped our little
heads out from under the deck one day, two people were sitting
outside. They looked just as surprised as we were. Luckily they put
food and water out for us and we felt safe with them. However, that is
as far as it went. A few pets here and there, but we were not allowed in the
house, or to feel at home. Like most cats, we went out into the field
to hunt for mice - because that is what cats do - but it was not
a good idea. I was taken by surprise when I felt the piercing of my
back right side by the talons of a giant hawk. He was trying to carry me
away. He was going to eat me! I fought with all I had and had to avoid
his sharp beak, and his wings and feathers would create such a flurry of
feathers. It was so scary, and I don't know how I got away, I really don't;
but when my feet hit the ground I ran for my life. I finally made it
back to the deck and the people saw the damage to me. They called Pet
Patrol and soon I was in their care. I had three puncture holes in my
side from the hawk, a growth on my front toe and broken teeth. I am a mess. I am
lucky that I came to Pet Patrol, and I have gone to the vet once to have
my wounds cleaned and to have a good once over, but there is more. The growth
on my toe has to be removed, and it is growing by the day, so big that it
is overwhelming my toe, and I have to have it amputated. I need several
teeth removed so that I can eat properly. Right now I just try my best,
but I always drool into the food. My mouth really hurts. This is
where I cry for your help. I cried and screamed when the
hawk was attacking me, and no one could hear me, no one could help, but
now Pet Patrol has given me a voice, and I hope you hear my pleas so that
I can have the surgeries that I need. Please donate.
