Eclipse was seen by a regular vet and an orthopedic surgeon the following day. The vets agree that his injuries are not impact (from a car), but rather from horrific abuse. His injuries include: right back leg with a fractured tibia, and fractured and displaced femur; a fracture in the pelvic girdle; and right front leg completely displaced and shattered with torn ligaments. And it's estimated by the vets that he suffered for about three weeks before taken to the county shelter--heartbreaking to imagine. Despite these serious injuries, he continues to purr and is so lovable.
One leg is splinted--the other leg will need surgery due to extensive damage. This sweet kitten has a long recovery ahead, but we feel confident he'll recover. He's unable to have toys and needs to be kept as calm as possible--not an easy feat for this little guy.
His veterinary charges to date are close to $500.00. We'll soon consult for a second opinion with another orthopedic surgeon (Please see the 9-12-2017 surgery consult update).
Whatever is in his future medically, we'll be there for him. This little guy has had a rough beginning, but he's safe and will never know cruelty again.
We sincerely thank you for your compassion and kindness in helping us assist him! SCOOP, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charity and can provide a tax receipt upon request.
