It’s hard to look at a cat and not smile.
The cat’s owner, an employee of a farm in Illinois, put the cat in the crate and left it for three days before bringing it to the Humane Society of the United States, where veterinarians quickly diagnosed her as suffering from a heart condition.
The kitten had been kept as a pet for over a year, and she’d been adopted by a family who thought she was a stray cat, according to a news release from the Humane League.
But when the owner returned home, he noticed that the kitten had an ear pierced, a scar on her face, and a swollen right eye.
“She was not wearing a collar,” Humane League director Nancy Schreiber told ABC News.
The rescue operation was an emotional one for the kitten’s owner and veterinarian, who had to give her a new name, and for Schreib and her team of volunteers, including a veterinarian from the University of Pittsburgh, to carefully remove the ear piercing, the scar, and the swelling.
The surgery was performed on Saturday.
“The ears were removed, the eyes were removed and she has an eye on her right side,” Schreibrt said.
“We wanted to give this a little bit of a home.
We wanted her to be loved.”
The kittens’ owner, Mark Pritchard, who was out of town, took the kittens home on Saturday, after they were given a place to stay and have the ear pierced.
Pritchard is currently being evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon who said he’d be willing to perform the surgery on the cat for free.
