Undercats4Life, a feline advocacy organization founded in 2010, received a call stating a cat had been found with a rope tied around her neck in Hollywood in the vicinity of Highway 441 and Garfield. A team was able to trap the cat, now dubbed Muffin. Last night Muffin underwent emergency surgery.
Muffin is currently at the Pet Doctor in Davie, where the staff worked to remove the rope embedded in her neck, as well as clean the infected area.
Those who have heard Muffin’s story are horrified, and want the monster who did this caught. A reward is being offered leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.
Meanwhile, Muffin will remain at the vet until her condition improves enough for her to placed in a home environment to heal. She’s not out of the woods yet, but she is one tough kitty to have survived as long as she has.
This type of injury will require a lot of vet expenses. Since the typical “collar of shame” can’t be used, and an injury of this type is difficult to heal, this means a lot of money will be needed to give this girl a chance for a good life.
Pet Doctor is closed today, but several from Undercats4Life plan to visit her on Friday. Donations may be called in directly to the vet at 954-900-2100.
Please share Muffin’s story, especially with those in the Hollywood, Florida area.
