Majesty was found infested with maggots, holes through her paws and whiskers singed off.
This is a case happening as we speak. A tiny kitty was found with severe maggot infestation. This is the first time doctors have seen a infestation this extreme. All of her paws are swollen and rats. The are inflamed with NO NAILS left. All four of her paws have a hole through them. Why? We do not know! I can only imagine. And her whiskers have been singed off.
Rescuers at The Arrow Fund received a call about this tiny cat that was suffering greatly in Hazard, Kentucky. Despite everything this tiny girl has been through she is so sweet purring while rescuers pet her. I can’t believe who gentle and sweet she is despite the pain.
A volunteer drove at midnight to medically transported this girl to their emergency vets. At the vets they removed the towel Majesty was in and there were maggots all over. She is being stabilized, on pain medications and IV. She will start the process of removing the maggots, repairing her paws and start her journey.
UPDATE 6-14-19: All four paws are badly damaged due to either a caustic chemical or from being burned. When she arrived her temperature was 104.6 and then went to 97 and needed to be put in the incubator. Plus, there is no explanation for the holes in all 4 paws. Foul play is a strong possibility with all of these factors. These burns are extremely painful and this little girl only weighs 3.96 pounds. She is estimated to be only 6 months old.
UPDATE 6-17-19: The bandages on Majesty’s paws are being changed daily at Blue Pearl. This morning she is running a fever and has diarrhea. She is on a scheduled feeding plan because she is emaciated as well. Majesty is a fighter and loves to be held and is purring anytime she is shown attention. She is tiny, but mighty! It is heartbreaking thinking of the agony she has been through...
