4 kittens burned!

OMG This is so sad...http://dogco.org/save-4kittnes-apa

Posted by Hendrick & Co. on Friday, March 31, 2017

Austin Pets Alive! just received four burned kittens. And while three of them, at least on the surface, only have singed fur, one is fighting for her life. We need your help.

What happened? A gentleman started a controlled brush fire not knowing that a nest of kittens was hidden in the field. Hearing their cries as the fire swept them up, he hurried to rescue the kittens and bring them straight to his nearest shelter. The shelter then turned to the APA! clinic for emergency help.

What’s needed? Lightning, the seal point siamese kitten, has been severely burned. She’s currently being treated with antibiotics, pain medications, topical cream, eye drops and love. Here’s where you come in. Right now, to ensure APA can adequately treat Lightning, upfront costs may run as high as $1,000. That doesn’t take into account the potential for all four kittens to develop smoke inhalation pneumonia, which is often the result of wildfire injuries. Lightning will also need ongoing skin care over and above her lung situation. And at this stage in their early lives, the eyes are particularly sensitive. Doctors are monitoring them right now, hoping they haven’t been damaged enough to lose them.


UPDATE 4-5-17: The severely burned kitten, Lightning, opened both eyes! She will likely be able to start eating gruel this week as well since she's growing teeth. She is amazing and such a fighter. Lightning still needs to come to the APA! clinic daily for left leg wraps and we'll continue to monitor that situation for any changes. The rest of her siblings are also recovering in medical fosters. This doesn't mean we still don't need your help! Please continue getting our Lightning products and help us continue saving babies like them.

We have created this special page to help raise funds needed to save the kitten’s lives and support Austin Pets Alive! Everything you see on this page from a tee shirt, tote bag, hoodie and bracelet helps us reach our goal and helps Lightning get the second chance at life she deserves. These items make great gifts. Please help become her voice.
