Fresno, CA – A Califiornia rescue agency is doing everything in its power to save a cat who has been severely abused. According to the Kirkland Foundation, the gray and white cat has horrible injuries and he was likely tortured.
In a Facebook post made three days ago, the animal welfare agency vowed to do its utmost to save his life, writing:
To the broken, jaundiced cat we pulled from a squalid North Fresno patio earlier today, you may not survive the night, but please know that we’re doing everything we can to help you live. Within minutes of our hearing of your horrific abuse, you were getting the same treatment that our own favorites enjoy, and now you’re in your own clean, comfy kennel with considerable financial and emotional resources dedicated to your well-being.
Though the details are vague, the cat was apparently beaten and hosed down by a depraved individual who did so in front of a child; the group intends to pursue this person after the cat’s veterinary needs are addressed. The group writes:
To the depraved soul that tortured our new best friend with beatings and hose downs and left him to die covered by maggots, please know that once we’ve exhausted our efforts on behalf of our little friend, our attention will turn to you.
A day ago, a promising update was made to the organization’s Facebook followers:
He’s a long way from awesome, but after a day and a half of nonstop treatment, he’s up and alert. Full recovery is a longshot, but he’ll be back at the vet in the morning to see if they can fix his smashed hips and get him back on track to walk, pee and poop on his own. Thank you everyone for your positive thoughts and support!
Recovering from extreme injuries will be hard, but this cat has good people on his side. You can follow the agency here.
