Caged cat fights for survival
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
Geronimo Johnson was rescued by local animal control agencies and is currently in the hands of our animal care and medical staff. He is believed to have been confined to a cage for an unknown period of time; he is malnourished, suffering from urine burns, and severely matted with feces. It was our intention to sedate and groom Geronimo, but his condition has worsened in the last couple of hours. Lab work determined he is diabetic, and he’s dehydrated and currently being administered IV fluids. Geronimo is in critical condition but visibly fighting for his life. He opens his tired and dejected eyes when we come near him, and he’s making every attempt to eat. We’re on standby hoping this beautiful soul will make it. We already love him and are rooting for his recovery.
