Turtle is one of the nicest cats, and even though the worst of the burns is to his face, all he wants is the back of his ears scratched all day long.
There was routine maintenance of burning ditches down in Sanpete County Utah and, those doing the work didn't realize Turtle was in one. After what must've been the most traumatic experience for him, he still allowed his rescuers to pick him up and get him help. When he came into our custody he went to Doctor Bott at Mountain West Animal Hospital. Doctor Bott put him under to clean him up and, open up his eyes, as they were swollen shut. Miraculously it looks like there was no damage to his eyes. Although he receives eyes drops three times a day to try and, keep it that way. We believed he is a long haired brown tabby, but we did shave him. Since most, if not all, of his hair was singed to a degree and matted.
We have done everything we can to help him and aide in his recovery. Thank you to everyone who donated to his poundWISHES campaign we over shot our goal thanks to your generosity and now Turtle has been adopted and will be going to his new home with all the items that were purchased for him from his wishlist!!!
We can't believe this day has actually come. We love Turtle with all of ours hearts, and it was tough to say goodbye. He is loving his new family. He has 4 brothers to play with all day, and he is finding all the good places to take naps.
