We have seen some crazy things, but we’ve never had this happen! We were contacted about a feral cat who was injured and needed help. We definitely don’t specialize in feral kitties, but this boy needed help, so of course we said yes. We had no idea of the extent of his injuries and he had been living in this condition for at least a week, so we really didn’t know what to expect. Donovan arrived at our facility in a crate and had eaten all of his food, was meowing and seemed fairly healthy, but skinny and was bleeding on his back end. What came next was completely unexpected! When we opened his crate to put him in his kennel, he walked in and his tail fell off...the whole entire tail was on the floor of his kennel!!!! We have no idea how long he suffered with such a horrific injury or how he didn’t succumb to infection, but he is one lucky boy. Donovan, who isn’t actually feral and just a little shy, had surgery to close up the opening of the tail and the vet also discovered some other wounds, likely from an attack. Donovan is one of the lucky ones, since a good Samaritan stepped in and made sure he got the help he needed, but this is just the beginning of his story. Donnavan will recover with us and then he will have the life that every cat deserves. Your donations make saving pets like Donnovan possible!
