Chrome will loose one or both eyes from abuse!
Friends this is a heartbreaking case! Please help this tiny kitten. Our partners The Arrow Fund received a plea about a badly abused newborn and knew they had to step in to save his life. This 1.25 pound kitten was found abandoned on side of road. All of his litter mates were found dead. He was the only one to survive.
At the shelter this baby did receive antibiotics but no advanced medical care or pain meds. Rescuers rushed the tiny boy to their emergency vet for life saving medical care. We were alerted to the situation this morning and we immediately stepped up to help. Rescuers have named him Chrome and he is in the back now being evaluated by emergency vet staff.
Chrome's eyes are in horrible shape. He is on pain meds for his eyes. He will stay at the ER Vet until Dr. Erica Tolar a board certified Veterinary Ophthalmologist can examine him. Chrome most likely will lose one or both eyes from his abuse. Please help us save this babies life.
Chrome weighs 1.25 pounds and is approximately 4 weeks old. He is very tiny and very sick. Please send lots of love to this innocent baby. Donations are so needed and would be appreciated. Rebecca, founder of TAF said, “We have been slammed and the case requests keep coming. We appreciate your support more than you could ever know…"
Chrome is around 1.87 pounds and his eye is still very bad. One is worse than the other but he is expected to lose both eyes when he reaches the 2.2 pounds that is ideal for a safe surgery. The Arrow Fund is staying in contact with Dr. Erica Tolar. Chrome is being spoiled by his foster parents Lisa and Russell Catron. Chrome is eating very well and we seem to have his pain under control. Please know he is being monitored closely. We love this little boy. Chrome is so sweet !
This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with TAF to create these animal saving shirts, sweaters and accessories to raise the funds needed to save Chrome from this unthinkable abuse. Everything from a tee to a bracelet can help Chrome heal both mentally and physically. Please, will you join us?
Remember the tiny kitten Chrome who was found on the side of the road with his dead littermates? The one who had a horrible eye infection. With a lot of love and attention Chrome is thriving in his foster home and now is not considered critical. He is growing and healing. We added new photos to this page. Although the swelling has gone down in his eye sadly his left eye will still need to be surgically removed and we are still unsure about his right eye. This means Chrome and our partners at The Arrow Fund still need your help! Please consider purchasing one of our Cat shirts or totes and help us continue to give Chrome the care he needs.
Chrome had the surgery to remove his left eye . He is doing well and being nursed by his foster mom and dad - Lisa and Russell Catron . Chrome's foster sisters Shasta and Maizie ( former Arrow Fund babies ) are also taking care of Chrome . Our thanks to Hopewell Animal Hospital and Dr. Amanda Brown . Chrome who came in to us so tiny , just hit 5 pounds and he is a beauty. As you can remember Doctors originally thought he would need both eyes removed. Thankfully they were able to save one. This sweet special boy thanks you for your support.
