Victoria is a 1 pound kitten who was found missing her leg.
We have created this campaign to help raise the funds needed to save a a cat who will need multiple surgeries.
This 1.5 pound kitten was found by a highway. I know this is graphic but she needs our help. One back leg is just a stump with maggots inside the wound. Maggots infestation in her anus as well. To stabilize Victoria doctors gave her an immediate blood transfusion. This is by far one of the worst cases we have seen.
A Good Samaritan found this kitten and brought to rescuers. So there is no background information on what or who did this. This tiny kitten was in horrific pain and needed relief. Pain medication were administered and then the process of removing the severe maggot infestation on the inside and outside of her tiny body started. Cleaning the wounds went underway as well. Blood work revealed just how critical Victoria was.
Surgery to amputate the remaining part of her leg is underway. Dr. Josh Bruce has stated that she is not the best surgical candidate , but they simply must remove the infected leg. After the surgery her PCV was only 21 even after the blood transfusion. She is so strong and is on her way to a new life. Please send lots of love, light, and prayers her way. This baby is only 1.5 pounds and is fighting hard.
We have partnered with The Arrow Fund to help raise the funds they need to save baby Victoria. To help save her please consider purchasing one of her shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. With every purchase you can help us cover her emergency care and her amputation surgery.
UPDATE: Victoria is now in her foster home with Chuck and Liz Kodner. Thank you Chuck and Liz! Can you believe this baby came to The Arrow Fund almost dead and four days later she is in her foster home? Her PCV is still only 20 but she is holding steady. She is eating several small meals a day. She will have a check up with Dr. Josh Bruce soon, but things are looking good for her! Victoria is such a precious, tiny girl. We absolutely love her.
