This poor kitty was found by the road near 17th Street and 2nd Avenue North by a Good Samaritan. They brought him indoors to keep him for the night. They contacted Pet Paw-see and he was taken to our veterinarian for care. Scrappy was struggling to breathe. He was found to be at least 10 years old, an intact male with a severe upper respiratory infection, extremely dehydrated, and infected with both FIV and FeLV. He couldn’t even hold his head up.
We made the difficult decision to help Scrappy pass. Our hearts break for all of the homeless and abandoned cats suffering outside, trying to survive brutal conditions.
