Meet Tara, a sweet, loving six-month old kitten who needs an eye operation. Last March a litter of four kittens were found in a shed after their mother had been killed by a car. One was already dead, the other three had very bad upper respiratory infections and we suspect Calicivirus, as sadly, Tara was the only one who survived.
Tara’s third eyelid had adhered to her cornea and when we had her spayed, it was loosened, however, it reattached upon healing. We took her to an eye specialist, Dr. Segal, at Carolina Veterinarian Specialty in Winston-Salem, and she said it could again be loosened, at which time they would put a contact lens in the eye so it will not reattach.
The cost for this operation is $600.00 and we were hoping some of our friends of Paws & Claws Feline Rescue may be needing a tax deduction at the end of the year and could donate to Tara so that she could have the operation.
Tara also needs her “Forever Home” if anyone has a place in their heart and home – she loves our collie dog and sleeps with her. Tara also gets along well with all the other cats and kittens.
Thank you to everyone who has generously donated, adopted, or volunteered this year to help us save almost one hundred cats and kittens. We couldn’t do it without you
