28.10. - I would like to thank the donor(s) and Petfinder team for the great help and donations. As mentioned, Hercules has been adopted and I've uploaded a photo taken by his new owner. His wound is recovering fast and he has a big appetite!
I found this cat with injuries on his hind leg at my apartment on 13 October .
He looked frightened and the way he meowed sounds like hoping someone to help him. I planned to bring him to vet the next day as it was Sunday and most of the vets have closed. When I rushed back from work the next day, he was found lying lifeless on the same spot. He never eaten the kibbles nor drank the water I left there earlier.
Vet first advised that the hind leg need to be amputated. I initially planned to release him after recovered, but vet advised that a cat with 3 legs can barely survive as he might be bullied by other cats when fighting for food. On the surgery day, the vet managed to save his leg by only removed 3 toes as the bone of the front toe has already exposed.
On the same day I sent the cat to the vet, I've posted on Facebook to seek for adopter. I managed to got him adopted and he is now being taken care by his new owner. His wound need to be cleaned daily and will take 1-2 months time to heal.
I've settled the bill amounted to RM458. I wish if the bill could be partly subsidized through donations on Petfinder if possible. This is my first rescue and I hope I could save more unfortunate strays in the future.
I've first named the cat Hercules as I wanted him to be stronger.
Thanks so much.
