On the morning of December 7th, a young lady name Bethany called Strays Halfway House to say that she had found a small kitten in the street in Glendale Heights the night before. She walked around to about 30 neighbors asking if they knew anything about the kitten and the only thing she was told was that people heard it out there meowing for a couple of days. Bethany fed it and started calling rescue groups. SHH called foster mom and volunteer, Vicky, to see if she could go and pick up the kitten. Bethany had said on the phone that the kitten would need medial care because it had a sore on its mouth that she put neosporin on. Vicky went and picked up the kitten and we immediately called a vet to see if she could bring it right in for a physical. She brought it straight over to the Animal Hospital of Streamwood and Dr. Margaret did the check up. She noticed immediately the mouth and showed Vicky how the jaw was dislocated and off to the side. She stated that she thought from that kind of injury and the angle, that it looked like it may have been thrown out of a car or dropped on its face. She immediately did x-rays, sedated the kitten, gave him pain meds and put the jaw back into place. She also noted a hole in the roof of his mouth where a tooth had punctured through. A health technician named Katie, helped Dr. Margaret with the different tests and procedures. She instantly felt a bond with him and stated her interest in adopting him. Strays HH has had to endure the medical bills for this little one that came in weighing less than two pounds. Cyrus as he was called by SHH, will be renamed "Chance" from his new family when he is all healed and ready for adoption. It is said that when he is not eating, he is playing, playing and then of course playing and getting into kitten trouble! Please help with "Chance's" medical bills so more animals can get their second chance.
