This is Tatsu and he is one of the most amazing cats we've ever met. We're told he was a "neighborhood cat" for many years, but no one wanted to claim him. Then one he showed up bloody and beaten, barely able to stand and a Good Samaritan took pity on him and brought him to us. We rushed him to the vet where his wounds were treated, a serious abcess on his neck cleaned and stitched up, his ears examined and cleaned, and antibiotics given. Once back here at Verde Valley Humane Society, he slept comfortably in a warm bed for the first time in years, got plenty of nutritious food, and plenty of love. Within 24 hours of arriving, he began winning over the hearts of our staff and volunteers with his sweet, brave, docile and affectionate personality. His healing continutes - and will for a bit - so now we need to turn our focus to paying the vet bill for his emergency treatment. No amount is too small - every penny is welcome and will go directly to vet bills for Tatsu and others in need.
