Ch­e­sa­peake Cats & Dogs res­cues cat with rub­ber band around neck

Record Observer - - News -

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.
