Mr. Jingles and his Second Chance Life!

Meet Mr. Jingles.
Last week, this handsome guy was abandoned by his owner due to his dead, rotting foot (most likely injured in a trap). He was tested for Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS (all negative), loaded with fleas, and just about the sweetest cat you can possibly imagine. Luckily, this sweet kitty is getting a second chance at life thanks to the excellent care of Dr. Munzing and the entire staff of CG&S. His leg was beyond saving, and was amputated. As you can see in this picture (WARNING, graphic photo ahead), the affected foot was much smaller than normal, in an almost mummified state, due to tissue death and decay.

Wounds must be treated sooner rather than later. Mr. Jingles was lucky to not have further issues beyond his leg- many animals are not so lucky and die from such injuries when the infection spreads to their entire body. The consequences of the inadequate care this kitty received is that he lost a leg, and will live out the rest of his life as a "tripod" kitty. That doesn't slow this guy down, though. Just 2 days post surgery, and Mr. Jingles is walking, purring, eating, meowing at anyone who will listen, and loves to be cuddled and loved.

Mr. Jingles (his new name- second chances mean clean starts and new names!) is looking for his forever home. If you find it in your heart to take in this sweet guy, please give our office a call and inquire about an adoption application. Our Christmas wish is that he finds a home free from the pain and danger of a life outdoors- Mr. Jingles has been through enough adventures! He was neutered at the time of his amputation, and will be vaccinated for FVRCP and Rabies.
