Meet Cameron, Camie, and Camber. We are fighting to save both their lives and their vision. At only three weeks old and only around 7oz. there are not many options for these little ones. Here is their story:
We pulled their mother, Camila, and her six, two week old babies from a local kill facility were they would have likely had a grim future. Camila and her six babies all had Upper Respiratory Infection. Camila was very ill and completely stopped eating and drinking, and in turn stopped producing milk to feed her babies. We were forced to separate Camila from her babies to receive emergency treatment. She received fluids, nebulization, and antibiotics to jump start her on the path to wellness again. Without their mom's milk we had to rush the babies to one of our experienced bottle-feeding fosters where they are all receiving round the clock care.
We still have a long ways to go with these little ones. Cameron, Camie, and Camber need constant eye cleanings to unglue their eyes from being stuck together, eye ointment, eye drops, and antibiotics but we are seeing some improvements already. For Camber, it appears that she has an ulcer on her eye. We are trying to prevent any infections in her eye, and if the ulcer does not rupture, when she gets big enough we can take her into surgery to remove the ulcer and save that eye. Sadly, even with surgery there is still pretty great chance that she may never be able to see out of that eye.
At The Cat Corner we do not simply give up and euthanize because a cat or kitten is ill or may not look “normal”. We are truly trying to make a difference in each of these cats and kittens lives. Sometimes it gets a little overwhelming and disheartening with the things that we see as a rescue… but when we see these babies grow up and go into such great homes, it makes it all worth it!
Please help us to continue to be able to provide care for cats like Camila and her kittens Cameron, Camie, and Camber and make a tax-deductible donate today.
We will keep you updated on their progress. (:
