At around 1:00 p.m. the afternoon of July 18th, our office manager, Debbie, heard some noise outside and opened the door to find this little orange kitten sitting on the doorstep. He looked at her with his beautiful eyes and said “Please don’t leave me; I need your help!” She then saw his tail, which was mangled.
Cheddar was taken to the Emergency Vet in Annapolis. The vet there thinks that “Sweet Boy Cheddar” either was hit by a car or his tail got caught in a fan belt. Cheddar had surgery early Saturday morning, 7/19. His entire tail was amputated.
Cheddar is doing really well. He has gained weight and now weighs 2.25 pounds. He enjoys running around and playing with any toy in sight. He has had his first distemper shot and will have his sutures removed on Thursday. Following that, we will see when it will be best to get him neutered.
The “Sweet Boy Cheddar Fund” is still short by a few hundred dollars, and we could really use your help! Please click here to donate immediately to help us pay for Cheddar’s surgery and other medical expenses.
