Kitten Shower – Patches

Warning: Graphic Images

It was a life-or-death situation for Patches.

The 9-week-old kitten arrived at the Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County with a gaping, infected wound and at imminent risk of losing his life.Patches-Kitten Shower 1

Our expert vet team discovered his internal abdomen was sliced open, exposing his organs. They quickly sutured Patches’ injuries, but a pelvic radiograph later revealed fractures to both of Patches’ hips that may cause osteoarthritis or even require surgery to remove part of his femur.

Patches is now recovering in a loving foster home but will require continued care and potentially additional procedures from our vet team. Your donation of any amount today will provide emergency treatment for Patches and all injured kittens that arrive at our shelter requiring life-saving intervention.
