In the UK, a homeless cat was discovered with a heartbreaking condition – both of its eyes were bulging out of their sockets due to a severe head injury. The kitten, who is estimated to be around 12 weeks old, was found wandering aimlessly on the streets of Derby. The feline, now named Rupert by his rescuers, was taken to a vet where it was revealed that the head injury was the likely cause of the distressing condition.
After a thorough examination, a veterinarian disclosed that a severe head injury is suspected to have caused the kitten’s eyes to bulge out. Despite their utmost efforts, the experts informed that it is necessary to remove both of the kitten’s eyes. Earlier, the RSPCA made an appeal to raise £1,000 ($1,318) to finance the surgery and provide ongoing care. Currently, the donations have exceeded the initial goal. Kerry Draper, who manages a rehoming center, expressed her sadness and said that it’s unclear how Rupert got injured, but it was evident that he needed specialized attention to recover. The 12-week-old feline, nicknamed Rupert by rescuers, was discovered in excruciating pain wandering on the streets.
We regret to inform you that despite our tireless efforts, it seems highly likely that Rupert will lose his vision permanently, as the prognosis for saving it appears to be quite bleak. In light of this news, we are reaching out to the public in the hopes of raising funds for Rupert’s rehabilitation so that he can continue living in a compassionate and nurturing environment with a family that will provide him with the specialized care he needs. During his time under our care, Rupert has been given pain relief medication, a secure shelter, and nutritious meals tailored to meet his specific needs, all aimed at helping him to stay strong and resilient during this challenging time. However, there is still a long and difficult road ahead for him. It is with heavy hearts that we must share that Rupert will soon be losing both of his eyes. Nonetheless, we remain hopeful that with the help of compassionate individuals like you, we can help him make a full recovery and go on to lead a happy and fulfilling life.
Rupert needs to undergo surgery to relieve the pressure, but unfortunately, there’s a high chance that he will lose both of his eyes. To prevent any infections, he requires antibiotics, continuous pain relief, and specialized food to regain his strength. Our team is currently giving Rupert all the love and support he needs as a young kitten. However, taking care of him will cost around £1,000, which is a significant amount for us. We guarantee that every donation made in this appeal will be allocated towards Rupert’s treatment and other cats like him. The Best Cat Page wishes Rupert a speedy recovery!
