Hello to my furiends. I send you happy wishes for the day, because I have a story that started horribly but which could have a happy ending if you help. You know I am a diabetic cat, but I have a human who takes care of me and protects me. Unfortunately for one cat, he didn’t.
Meet Lucky. You won’t think his name fits after you read about what happened, but in some ways, he is.
Lucky was turned in to an animal shelter and taken to a veterinary clinic, where one of the vet techs shared the story of Lucky. Originally, the story was that Lucky had been hit by a car. A cat who survived that truly deserves the name Lucky. Well, the truth was far worse.
Some sick human decided that it would be fun to dump acid on Lucky, and he suffered second degree burns as a result. His shoulders, neck, and back of his head were covered with blisters. Some of the acid had even crept into the corner of one of his eyelids. You can see the damage inflicted by clicking here, but be warned that the image is very disturbing.
Put an animal, or even a human, in this much pain and you are likely to receive a aggressive response when you try to help them. Pain and suffering causes animals of all sorts to react aggressively. That’s nature’s defense mechanism.
Not Lucky. Even though he was in a lot of pain, not only did he hold back, but he was purring and making biscuits the whole time his injuries were being treated.
A rescue society called the Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART) has stepped in to help Lucky recover. But they need some help. Lucky’s veterinary bills will likely be very high, because of the damage done by the evil human who doused him with acid. The bills for a diabetic cat are high enough. They’ll be nothing compared to what Lucky’s are.
Can you help HART give Lucky the treatment he needs and deserves so he can recover? If you can’t donate, please share this with everyone you can.
You have all rallied around this diabetic cat. Now it’s time to rally around Lucky.
