An injured and bleeding cat was wandering the streets with her surviving baby at her side in Tijuana, Mexico.
According to her saviors in Mexico, someone had tried to skin her ears and they were a mangled mess and bleeding everywhere. DREAM Animal Rescue was alerted and she was taken for surgery to remove the damaged ears completely. She and her son still needing saving so, with the help of the folks in Mexico and a helper in San Diego, we rushed a volunteer down to the border to get them.
They were both filthy and covered in fleas and mites. Both suffered from severe ear infections, especially Momma who we named Snowy. They will need ongoing treatment to get them happy and healthy! Lots of testing is being done to determine the best course of treatment for Snowy and baby TJ.
They were both covered in mites and have bad ear infections. They needed antibiotics, ear cleaning, skin scrape, ear cytology, and surgery to repair/remove the damaged ears. Surgery in Mexico and further medical care in the States brought the medical bills to around $1,000, but she may need another surgery to clean up the edges of her ears.
Please consider supporting this tiny family and they attempt to heal and start their new life.
