Story

Can you help Andy the North Carolina Kitten?

This tiny, defenseless 10-week-old kitten was abandoned and abused. Left on a doorstep, he was covered in spray foam insulation that had eaten away at his fur and caused open wounds. The wounds have become infected and infested with maggots. His tail has lost all of its fur and the veterinarian is not sure if it can be saved.

How can anyone do this to this little fur baby?

We have paid for the preliminary examination but this little guy may need x-rays and bloodwork, he is going to need a lot of help. We do not know how much his treatment or surgery will cost at this point until the veterinarian gets the bloodwork and x-ray results back.

Pray for this little angel. Every dollar you can donate will go towards any medical care Andy needs now and in the future.

We will have an update soon!

Andy is a Fighter!

Tiny Andy is a Fighter! Andy was lucky, most of his tail has healed, only a part of the tip of his tail died and naturally fell off. Andy has made a full recovery and is getting so big! His mom says he is full of energy and loves to get into mischief. Thank you to every one who cared about the little guy.

Andy's progress

Andy's check up went well, he has been given another course of antibiotics to clear up the infection at the base of his tail. The veterinarian needs healthy tissue in order to suture it up after he removes Andy's tail.

Andy's savior and new mom said he is eating and drinking and definitely feels more comfortable. Andy is finally starting to act like a kitten - playing with his toy mouse and ball. Andy now has a surrogate kitty mommy named Claire, who is helping take care of him.

Andy will have another check up once he has finished his second course of antibiotics and hopefully at that time his surgery will be scheduled.
