PLEASE HELP EMERGENCY!
Three orphaned kittens struggle for their lives… During the Holiday Season people are busy shopping around and don't see little things happening right in their own backyard. A Family of three newborn kittens was born to a scared, timid Mother only a baby herself. She abandoned her babies as she could no longer feed or care of them. Now meowing faces looked for comfort and food. But she had no milk and her youngin’s had badly infected eyes. The four week old kitten family desperately clung to each other.
Rescue AKA Queie, a black male, Hope a very tiny Torti; the sickest kitten, and Lovey an orange Tabby all have a severe upper respiratory infections. Sticky mucus covered and dried their eyes and nostrils. They could not open their eyes or breathe. Queie has a bigger problem – the right eye is so badly infected it popped out of the socket.
Tatiana at the Animal Clinic of Bay Ridge, said to bring them in. Dr. Alexandru immediately saw them.
I gave Amoxicillin drops twice a day and Erythromycin eye ointment two times daily and Nutri-Cal supplement three times a day, and bathed their crusted eyes with Chamomile compresses. The babies are responding to hand feedings. The doctor said that was perfect and they were doing well. Queie’s traumatic operation will be done as soon as he is strong enough and older. Dr. Alexandru will perform the difficult surgery. Mom will be trapped, spayed, ear tipped, released so she can remain healthy and not reproduce. MUFFIN'S will help subsidize the fees. Donations are appreciated.
Prognosis looks good for the three Winter Miracles. This Holiday will have three strong, adoptable sweethearts representing the Heart of the Season: Family, Health and Goodwill. Thank you, God Bless.” -Teresa Romano
