Little kitten survived the attack,but then found a loving home
Trooper lived under a porch in Colorado, surrounded by his four brothers and sisters. He was only 10 days when he and his family were attacked by a dog. Trooper and his sister Patience were the only survivors.
A kind man found the kittens and brought them to the vet and then got in touch with the organization for the protection of animals. Trooper was in a particularly serious condition (his right front paw had to be amputated – so she was wounded).
However, the trooper was too small for the operation.
“Anesthesia for these kids can be very dangerous, but we knew that without the surgery he would not survive and we decided to take a chance,” said Dr. Emily Hayes.
Trooper successfully underwent surgery.
Now he had a recovery. Troper and his sister was bottle-fed. His wounds and bandages were inspected daily to avoid infection.Two months later trooper became as cheerful and happy as any other kitten, with a healthy love of toys. Naturally, such a charming personality didn’t take long to find the parents. Exactly the same as his sisters (they were taken in different houses).
“We are happy that he is now a member of our family,” said Cindy H., a new mom of Trooper.
