Hunger is an ever-constant threat and worry for the many homeless animals in Bulgaria and other countries throughout the world. Without a loving home and caring guardian, every day for stray animals is a battle for survival – and sometimes that desperation for food can lead to devastating consequences. Sadly, this was the case for Kitty.
Kitty is a homeless cat who lives on the streets of Bulgaria. Only about a week ago, she was searching for food and found herself on the balcony of a second-floor apartment which was the home of four dogs. Whether Kitty was unaware of the dogs’ presence or too desperate to care is unknown, but in either case, things ended poorly for this cat. Within minutes, all four of the family’s dogs leapt in to attack the cat, leaving her severely injured.
A Phone Call to Remember
The morning after the attack, the guardian of the four dogs called Desislava Stoyanova, an animal rescuer and founder of the ‘’Save Me’’ Facebook page, which aims to raise money for needy animals she rescues. The woman was very distressed as she is an animal lover and her dogs have never had an issue with cats before. Given the poor state of the cat, she was desperate for help, so Desislava immediately stepped in.
Kitty was bleeding extensively due to the severe bites all over her body. After an examination, the vets determined that the cat’s muscles were torn, her backbone was broken, and she had an abdominal hernia. This is a very serious prognosis for such a small creature.
Because Kitty was losing so much blood, vets suggested euthanasia, something Desislava couldn’t bring herself to do if there was still a chance the cat could pull through. With that resolution made, it was decided that Kitty would stay at the clinic for a long period of time and receive close monitoring. Once she stabilizes, she will also undergo an operation that will set her spine and hopefully allow her to regain use of her back legs.
Will You Help Kitty?
Kitty’s injuries are severe and there’s a chance she could be left disabled as a result of the horrific attack. Right now she’s in the veterinary hospital, waiting for her operation, and Desislava is hoping and praying her back and legs can be saved. As you can probably imagine, this treatment doesn’t come cheap and the bill is getting higher every day – a bill that Desislava is struggling to pay off all on her own.
