Injured Kitten Needs Surgery

Corky was found outside dirty and hungry this past Monday.  The children who found him took him home and gave him a bath, but when they realized he was not walking and in pain they brought him to Feline Rescue so that he could get medical attention.

Both of Corky's back legs are broken, a simple fracture of the tibia on one leg which is expected to heal nicely, and a compound fracture of the femur which involves the growth plate on the other leg.  He was scheduled for surgery today to repair the compound fracture.  We are hoping for a full recovery but as his leg grows he may need additional medical treatment.

Donations for his surgery would be greatly appreciated. For information on how to donate to Feline Rescue, please see our Donate page or click the Donate button on the right side of our blog.

Once he is well enough to leave the hospital Corky will spend as much time as needed recovering in a Feline Rescue foster home before beginning his search for a special forever home.

Please send good thoughts his way. We hope to have some more photos and an update soon.
