Meet Romeo, this handsome boy is a 1-year old, unaltered cat. Romeo was doing well as an unaltered indoor cat. According to his mom he wasn’t spraying anything in the house and he never went outside, so his mom didn’t have him neutered.
Then Romeo got out.
Romeo’s escape could have happened for many reasons. As an unaltered cat, one possibility is that the combination of kitten season and Romeo’s teenage hormones got the better of him.
When Romeo finally returned home, his mom could see he had been hurt. His tail was infected, and mom could clearly identify a wound. The wound was so obvious she worried Romeo had been shot in the tail! Romeo’s mom was worried sick but knew she had to take her kitty to the vet. She’s a single mom, with three kids, and was certainly not expecting this emergency vet expense. That’s when she heard about Fur Kids Foundation, and applied.
Fortunately, Romeo wasn’t shot, but had likely found himself in a fight with another cat. The tail injury his mom found was an abscess that needed cleaning and antibiotics. With Fur Kids Foundation’s help, Romeo is on the road to recovery!
Romeo’s mom is sure glad to have him back, and says she’s considering neutering him. We sure hope she does so Romeo can avoid kitten season run-ins in the future.
