Time Flies By for Two Neglected Kittens
– Buzz and Goldie arrived at the Wisconsin
Humane Society with their little necks swollen and
raw from an infestation of fly larvae under their
skin. Frustrated and uncomfortable, it was obvious
to see that the cute little duo had been neglected.
veterinarians were able to surgically remove the
larvae from under their skin. Most of their hair
has grown back, and they have both responded well
it is not all that uncommon for animals to become
infested like Buzz and Goldie. A common problem
this time of year, fly larvae enter the animal usually
through the mouth or nose and burrow to warm areas.
All the cats
who arrive at the Wisconsin Humane Society get special
attention and Buzz and Goldie are no exception.
After weeks of treatment, the little cats are ready
to be adopted by a guardian who will safeguard them
For more information

Humane Society at (414) ANIMALS.

Thursday, September 8, and a Wisconsin Humane
Society veterinarian will be available for interviews.
