Struggle is nothing new to 2-year-old male cat Otto. He was found lying in the middle of the road, clearly having been hit by a vehicle. Luckily one passerby refused to leave him and stopped to help the poor boy. They rushed him to the Animal Care Centers of New York City. If they’d left him there, his devastating loss would have been much more.
They Discovered The Feline Was Also Suffering From Some Older Injuries During His Exam.
Weighing in at only 5 pounds, Otto broke their hearts with the tales his wounds told. His tiny body was missing patches of fur all over and there were approximately 30 old puncture wounds! He was also limping due to one of his back legs healing without medical attention after being broken.
The loving cat had come from unimaginable horrors. Happily, the Odd Cat Sanctuary in Salem, Massachusetts stepped in and pulled the feline from death’s door.
His chances of surviving in the shelter with wounds that extensive were very slim.
Odd Cat Sanctuary Was Founded By Tara Kay, Who Spent 12 Years As An Emergency Veterinary Technician.
Loving animals her whole life, her passion is cats and she spends all hours of the day helping save as many as possible.
Their website states that: The mission of the Odd Cat Sanctuary is to help odd cats who have no place to turn. This may be a result of medical illnesses, behavioral issues, being physically challenged, abandoned, abused, or neglected, feral or semi-feral, death row inmates, or seniors.
We believe that all cats deserve love, attention, and medical care, first with a caring foster and then with placement in a forever home. We are a 501(c)(3) organization that is primarily foster based, volunteer driven, and relies on donations, contributions, and fund raising.
