A volunteer stopped at a woman's house that had more than 30 kittens in the yard, where the majority were ill with flea infestations and upper respiratory infections.
If left untreated, these infections can lead to painful and disturbing injuries, just as poor Kermit experienced. Our volunteer scooped the 3 most urgent cases and feared they would not make it on the ride to the vet. Two of the kittens taken from the home passed away at the vet. Kermit is the sole survivor.
Kermit is not quite safe yet, but he is eating, using the bathroom, and has even started purring when we pet him. The vets are not able to remove his infected eye as he is far too weak to undergo anesthesia. Kermit is receiving around the clock care and intense antibiotics. For now, we need help with his medical care. He is in ICU receiving hourly care and must remain at the vet until his condition improves. We cannot imagine daily life with an eye like this but Kermit continues to push through.
Please consider donating to Kermit's mounting bill, as he will also need surgery for his eye and neuter, in addition to routine vet care once his strength improves. You can also help Kermit on his way to recovery by purchasing items from his wishlist.
