Chesapeake Cats & Dogs rescues cat with rubber band around neck
STEVENSVILLE — On Oct. 26, Chesapeake Cats & Dogs received a phone call from Caroline County Humane Society about a young cat that had been found and was seriously injured.
She was initially taken to Dr. Mitch Arion of Caroline Veterinary Clinic. He found a rubber band so tightly wound around her neck that it had cut into her skin deeply. The speculation is that it had been there a while. She is malnourished and also had been shot in the eye with a BB gun.
The vet cut off the rubber band, cleaned the wound and gave eye medicines needed.
Chesapeake Cats & Dogs has placed the cat, now named Faith, in foster care to heal. She will be available for adoption once she is fully healed.
Though abused and abandoned, Faith is now safe and on the road to recovery. You can follow Faith’s recovery at Chesapeake Cats & Dogs’ Facebook page or at www. chesapeakecatsanddogs. org.
Donations to help with Faith’s medical bills and care are welcome.
