For All Animals got a call that two kittens had been found in an engine of a large piece of machinery. Both have suffered from ulcers on their eyes. Smooshy, named by the person who found him, due to this "smooshy eyes" has microphthalmos, which means his eyes are under developed. He and his sister Monkey both suffer from upper eyelid agenesis, which is a congenital defect where the upper eyelids are not formed. Due to Smooshy's lack of eyes, he isn't affected, but Monkey's fur is poking her in the eye all along the top of her eye. :(
Monkey also suffers from Peters’ anomaly (or anterior segment dysgenesis) which is a failure of the normal development of the tissues of the anterior segment of the eye. It presents as a foggy white haze on the outer sides of her eyes, and inhibits her vision — but we won’t know the full extent of the injury until she grows more.
The ophthalmologist gave us an estimate for the procedures this pair will need in a few months - and it is A LOT. With our 25% nonprofit discount, each surgery is estimated at $2,350.
With kitten season in full effect, and our existing fosters, we are running low on funds and really need your support! Please make a donation to help Smooshy and his sister Monkey get the eye attention they desperately need.
These munchkins will also need a home - together.
