Mugsy was rescued from the street as a very young and malnourished kitten. He was only a few days old and not in the best of shape. His Mama was not taking very good care of him and his siblings so shelter volunteers had to syringe and bottle feed the kittens.
Once the kittens were better, they were adopted into new families; except for Mugsy. One day Mugsy started having trouble breathing so he was taken to the vet where they learned what was wrong. Unfortunately, Mugsy was diagnosed with a condition that caused his nasal passage to be narrowed. This is an uncomfortable condition that occurs when a membrane develops within the nasal cavity. This thin but durable membrane restricts the flow of oxygen through the trachea when the cat's mouth is closed. Mugsy was only 9 months old and deserved to be a fun loving kitten that didn't have to struggle with something as simple as breathing.
Thankfully, poundWISHES was able to to provide Mugsy with not only money towards his procedure but various items from his Wishlist were also donated to help him during recovery. Mugsy was able to get his surgery and is recovering tremendously. He ended up getting adopted by a great family that will be able to give him all the love and attention he will ever need. We are so grateful we were able to help one of our local shelters raise funds for such a deserving kitty! Happy tails Mugsy!
