Naevia had been completely 'de-gloved' from her elbow down and missing her paw entirely.
Warning this story is heartbreaking. It’s time we introduce you to one of the toughest kitties we've ever met, meet Naevia! A few weeks ago, AARCS received a call from one of their partner veterinary clinics regarding a young female who was found in a gruesome state and excruciating pain. We must warn you, her story might not be for everyone.
Sweet, young Naevia had been completely 'de-gloved' from her elbow down and missing her paw entirely, leaving only the bone and deteriorating tissue behind. We are as angry as you are. But we must focus on saving her life. To do that we need your help!
Beyond that, she had a large open wound on her back between her shoulders that severely infected and filled with maggots! Although we do not know for sure what happened to her or how long ago, we were absolutely shocked to see that she was somehow still alive! She is absolutely resilient and had so much fight left, we had to do something.
Thankfully AARCS acted quickly and she was examined by their ER veterinary team and they took action. Sadly we just found out one of her legs could not be saved. Naevia went under for an amputation of her critically damaged limb and also to flush out, clean and repair her severely infected wound on her back. She has been on crate rest to recover. She is one of the most affectionate cats, even after all the pain she has suffered. You can tell that she is very thankful that rescuers did not give up on her and gave her a fighting chance. It is animals like Naevia that we are able to rescue and rehabilitate WITH YOUR HELP. Her story is one of many who have suffered terribly, but we're given the opportunity to not only fight, but survive.
This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with AARCS to create these animal saving shirts, sweaters and accessories to raise the funds needed to save cover Naevia surgeries and continued around the clock care. With your help they can save her from this unthinkable neglect and abuse. Everything from a tee to a bracelet can help Naevia heal both mentally and physically.
