I am always shocked when I hear about horrible animal abuse stories. Sometimes, humans can be very cruel. But there are cases where the horrible animal abuse is the sad beginning to a very happy story. That is what happened with my furiends Lucky, Justin, Dottie, and Joe, to name a few.
Now I am hopeful that another victim of animal abuse, Vulcan, will have a similar story to tell.
Vulcan, like my furiends Lucky and Justin, was set on fire by an evil and cruel human. He managed to escape from this horrible human, but not before suffering severe injuries. Fortunately for this tough cat, the humans at Edmonton’s Animal Care and Control found him and took him to their facilities.
While visiting the facilities to find cats to rescue, one of the humans at Infinite WOOFS Animal Rescue Society saw Vulcan. His injuries were severe, as he has suffered burns over most of his body, and the humans in white coats think some of them are third degree burns.
The treatment from the humans in white coats for Vulcan is extensive. It involved shaving his fur, giving him medicine, treating him with antibiotics to avoid infections, and providing him with pain killers so he does not suffer. Vulcan also must endure daily baths.
Despite suffering from animal abuse, Vulcan is a loving and friendly cat. He loves to get ear scritches and head rubs, and he has a very loud and loving purr.
Poor Vulcan is always going to have scars on both his body and his heart due to the animal abuse he suffered. And he has a long way to go before he recovers.
But Infinite WOOFS is committed to making sure he gets the treatment he needs in order to recover and thrive. And when he does, they will find him a loving home where he will never have to worry about such cruelty again.
I do not have to tell you that Vulcan’s care will require many green paper things. Please send some if you can. And if you cannot, please send healing thoughts to Vulcan and share his story with others.
