PET STORIES: Cat Recovers from Stick Stabbing

No one knows how it happened, but Little Baby somehow got herself in a big heap of trouble. After disappearing for a week, this stray cat reappeared outside of the house of the nice lady who fed her. But her shocking condition proved that life is dangerous for our homeless friends – she had a large stick protruding out of her back, just next to her spine.

Luckily for this kitty, the lady who found her was a client at Hulen Hills (now The PARC). She gently scooped Little Baby up and brought her in. After Dr. Hotchkiss performed emergency surgery to extract the stick and repair the extensive damage, our staff offered Little Baby lots of TLC and socialization. We’re happy to report that Little Baby has recovered fully and now has a new, loving (and much safer) home!
