I received a call, local police had found a severely injured cat trying to crawl the road towards the curb. He had already been hit by a car, he was barely able to move, but through sheer determination, being only able to use one of his legs, he was inching and getting out of the way.
It was HEARTBREAKING. The Police officers stopped, picked him up and held him in their arms on the way to the hospital.
When police finds an injured cat the protocol to follow is to take the animal to Animal Control who, more often than not, will end up destroying him.
But POLICE (that´s the name we´ve given him in honor of his saviours), has been lucky this time. One of the officers is a great animal lover and follows our page. He knew our hospital. He refused to let this baby die…
POLICE is a young Maine Coon, still growing… he´s magnificent.
POLICE is hospitalised in Intensive Care, being readied for surgery. Upon arrival we discovered that he had pneumotorax, air in his chest as a result of the trauma. His lung was compressed and it was about to collapse.
POLICE has two bone fractures.. his hip is broken, and so is his right leg.. PLEASE WATCH HIS RESCUE VIDEO…
For the last 24 hours POLICE has been in Intensive Care. His condition is more stable now and we are aiming to operate him tomorrow.
P.S. After he is completely recovered, POLICE is going to need an amazing home, a home where he will be able to have a wonderful, extraordinary life. Please write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org including pictures of your current animals if you believe you are that family.
