An urgent call for help.
A group of youngsters accompanied by their dogs gather in a circle at empty construction site. The teens shout in excitement. In the middle of the circle, a kitty tied to the floor with a rope fights for his life.
By the time help arrived and he was freed it was too late for Carlos. His tiny body had been ravaged by sharp, crushing teeth. He put a brave fight, and that probably saved his life, but his hip and legs were shattered.
His legs are punctured, open injuries exposing the bones, surrounding tissue infected and beginning to develop nechrosis.
The attack happened two days ago… he was kept in a carton box, unassisted until today.
Please help us save Carlos… right now the focus is to balance his blood levels, to improve his anemia and his condition so that he can go into surgery without risk. After we have achieved this we will start by fixing the hip fracture…
Carlos went through one of the most stressful situations a little cat can endure, a brutal and relentless attack, and he survived. He deserves every bit of help we can give him!
UPDATE June 30
CARLOS HAS BEEN OPERATED!!!!
Carlos the kitty was used as dog bait, and the result was catastrophic. He had injuries on his legs and his hip was broken in multiple points. He couldn´t be operated immediately because in this condition he wouldn´t have been able to go through anaesthesia, so he had to wait 48 hours to be operated.
I will upload a video of this surgery this evening, for now this is the result… Thank you to our surgeon for what is, without a doubt, an outstanding job in trauma surgery!!!!
