Update! Mittsy has come a long way in his recovery process thanks to all of you! Today he is bandage free and healing nicely. In the beginning he really scared us when he spiked a 105 fever and his foot was triple the size. His wound was cleaned extensively, he had stitches, bandage changed every 3 days then every 5 and 3 rounds of antibiotics. All that work did the trick. Now Mittsy's foster mom cleans his wound twice a day and applies antibiotic ointment while the wound continues to shrink and heal. Mittsy can't wait for the next check up and hopes to get the collar off soon. He wants to romp and play and give generous kisses to everyone. Donations to cover Mittsy's total medical expenses are still needed!! Mittsy came into our thrift shop needing help. He wasn't just a hungry, intact male cat, he had a severely infected abscess on his arm. He was hospitalized to get the wound cleaned, drained and stitched and get his 105 fever to break. His abscess is quite large and will take weeks to heal with regular vet visits required. The mounting vet bills are very costly for us. We need your help to get Mittsy better. Donations are appreciated! Donate through Paypal (see our "How to Help" tab) or send check to PO Box 268, Peekskill, NY 10566. Thank you!
