Today, a Good Samaritan found a badly injured ten week old kitten at Makapuu Point. With some networking, the cat was able to get to Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital and was given an exam and x-rays.
Unfortunately, the cat appears to have been attacked by another animal and has some serious injuries that will require extensive surgery. His tail will need to be amputated, his wounds cleaned and stitched up (as they are bleeding), and multiple areas in his broken hip/pelvis that will need to be surgically repaired with pins and/or plates.
As one can imagine, this is going to be quite expensive. The low end quote is 5,500 and the high end quote (which would include repairing everything noted above) would be 7,500.
Right now, he's going home to rest, confined so he does not injure himself, and is being treated with pain meds and antibiotics. If we can raise the money, we will go forth with the surgery. We will also work on getting another opinion from another surgeon if possible. We want to make sure we do what is right for this kitten and that he will have a good quality of life.
But regardless, we will need your help. And I know this is a huge ask.
