is All Patched Up; Waiting for a New Home
– Patches arrived at the Wisconsin Humane
Society clearly in bad shape. In addition to the
1-year-old domestic shorthair feline looking frazzled
and upset, her left eye was obviously badly injured.
Bulging out of
its socket, it was anyone's guess if Patches' eye
could be saved. Poor Patches was so scared and probably
didn't know why she was in so much pain.
Society veterinarians learned Patches was thrown
from a moving vehicle and found on the side of the
road. A caring family who witnessed the incident
took her in and cared for her. They soon discovered
that they could not afford to properly care for
her and surrendered her to WHS where they knew she
would receive the best possible care. WHS vets examined
Patches' infected eye and determined it would need
to be removed.
Thanks to the
caring staff at the Wisconsin Humane Society, Patches
is now “patched up” and recovering from her traumatic
No one could
guess Patches experienced such an ordeal. She is
full of love and life, and seeking a guardian who
recognizes only one eye won't slow Patches down.
This cat with special needs is now searching for
a new and loving place to call home.
