Rescuers Find a Cat with a Roll of Tape Around His Neck and Save Him Giving Him a New Life
A large empty tape roll was found wrapped around the neck of a ginger cat that was found in California’s homeless population. Countless individuals tried to catch him, but they were unsuccessful because he was scared of them. Chris Gattas and Kimberly Saxelby made the decision to travel there in order to rescue the helpless cat.
After waiting for an hour, we realised that the tape roll on his head was keeping him out, so we had no choice but to try and catch him with our nets. “When we got there, we placed a trap about two feet away from him while he lay behind a car.”
Chris was able to grab him with the pole net as he tried to flee after forcing him into an old shed after a lengthy chase, according to Kimberly.
They believe the neck tape roll has been there for literally months. To begin medical care, they took the cat to Rancho Cucamonga Animal Shelter.
“At first, we believed there was a dead animal close to the shed, but it turned out to be the smell of his dead flesh and disease coming from his neck.”
“Before we ripped the tape roll off his neck, none of us understood how bad his condition was after we had medicated him. I cried because I couldn’t even begin to understand how much pain and suffering this poor, loving kitty has suffered for such a long time. Due to his inability to eat or drink properly while having the tape roll over his head, he is severely underweight and dehydrated.”
The skilled veterinarians at the shelter performed an emergency procedure on the ginger boy to clean and treat the area above his ears and around his entire neck.
“We gave this lovely boy the name Valentine because that was the day he was saved.”
