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.
Our expert vet team 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.
Now that the weather is warmer, fragile baby kittens, like Patches, are starting their lives on the streets. We’ve already taken in 165 babies this year, some only a few days old, and we expect to spend over $62,000 in the next few months to save them. Please make a donation to this year’s Kitten Shower to help us reach our goal.
