GRACE never enjoyed the warmth and security of a loving home. She was the garden cat, going from home to home at different times, a bit of food from here, a bit of water there, some would ignore her, others would caress her. A good cat, but a street cat. Tolerated but watched from the distance. Never loved.
And then, one night, she didn´t show up for dinner. She didn´t appear the following morning either.
For three days she was gone, until the fourth day someone found her hiding under some bushes in a nearby property.
Her injuries are horrific and man-made. Someone impaled her with a metallic object. There is an entry and an exit point. Whoever did this missed her vital organs but the damage was done. Infection set in and spread like a living, breathing entity, eating baby Grace from within.
The people that found her took her to their local vet but they could quickly see they wouldn´t be able to treat it properly. Their vet advised them Grace should be euthanized. She is too far gone they said, infection is too spread, they said, and she is a homeless street cat anyway.
But before killing her, they tried one last desperate move, and they contacted us. A few minutes later Grace was arriving at our Hospital and rushed to the Intensive Care Unit.
We realize these images are hard to watch to those that don´t have a medical background, but we believe it´s important for all of you to see the extent of our work here. Please watch it… and while you do please focus on the positive; thanks to you Grace stands a chance.
Grace is an Extreme Rescue, a case rejected by everyone else… too complicated… too risky… too costly for what in the minds of many is JUST A STREET CAT.
Grace needs your help to pull through…
UPDATE 26 of July…

P.S. After she is recovered Grace won´t go back to the streets. She is going to need an extraordinary family that loves her and accepts her as part of the family. Please write to me on email@example.com if you are that family and tell me why you feel you would be a great option for Grace.
