This is an update on Starr, a cat turned into a North Carolina shelter after suffering from long-term neglect and abuse.
After Starr was rescued, she was taken to the Head Butt Hotel infirmary. Due to her condition, at some point, it was recommended that Feline Canine euthanize Starr, to which the rescue gave the following statement and update on her condition on a June 5Facebook post
“We are hoping for another miracle long term recover for her here, at the Head Butt Hotel Infirmary !
THANK GOD WE DIDN’T EUTHANIZE HER AS WAS RECOMMENDED, WE NEVER CAN STOP TRYING, AND CAN NEVER GIVE UP HERE, NO MATTER WHAT THE COST !”
Starr’s biopsy results are in following her surgery May 29. The condition of her mouth had everyone hoping this girl wasn’t diagnosed with cancer. Thankfully, the neglect this girl suffered at the hands of her prior owner has eventually led to an optimistic test result.
Starr is cancer-free, with no squamous cells present. She will have to be monitored closely in case cancerous cells develop. Although her recovery will be slow, Starr has already started a regimen of antibiotics and steroids.
Thanks go out to Christine Zois and Rescue Coordinator for Cabarrus, Marleen Jenkins, who helped immensely with getting Starr rescued from the Cabarrus shelter. Thanks also go Jana and Larry, who groomed Starr with a spa day on May 30.
