Muffins was found burned and left in the streets
This burned kitten needs our help. A good samaritan found a little Kitten nearly lifeless on the nyc streets, this kitten had been badly burned. The finder rushed the kitten to NYC ANIMAL CARE AND CONTROL and the shelter then called and asked Second Chance Rescue NYC to take him in so that he could get to a hospital, this is an urgent case.
Muffins was barely hanging on, he was weak, FELV +, emaciated, dehydrated, blood coming out of his nose and mouth. The burned tissue was becoming necrotic which means these burns are not fresh. When found, the kitten was very out of it and Muffin’s mentation is dull and even some of his molars are black. Painkillers and a feeding tube have been administered but Muffins needs so much more.
UPDATE 12/29/20: Muffins is hydrated and his burns are being tended to and are already healing well. SCR BYC is optimistic at this time regarding his recovery.
UPDATE 1/2/21: Muffins was discharged from the hospital this weekend and made his way to a medical foster momma. Muffins is healing up very well and is already looking like a whole new kitten! His foster reports that he is extremely affectionate and has no ill feelings towards humans even after being burned. This 4 months old kitten is one of the bravest little guy I know!
There is no information on who did this to Muffins, he was found alone on the streets so we will most likely never know who burned him and why. We created the MEOW beanie to help us raise the funds to cover his emergency vetting the rescuers have for saving his life! Please consider one for yourself or a friend and share his story!
