“A calico and white kitty crawled up our walkway on her front paws and hid in our bushes. Her back legs were limp. My husband, on his way to work and to take my son to school, saw the kitty and tried to approach her, she was clearly in pain.”
This happened the morning of May 30 (an earlier email to us failed to send).
They took her to the Maple Leaf Veterinary Care Clinic. “There, she was given pain medicine and a sedative so that the doctor could check her injuries. She was found without a tag or a microchip. Her right ear was clipped.
“Unfortunately, she had severe neurological injuries and began having seizures. She needed to be put down. The animal control gave the doctor permission to euthanize the kitty. I stayed with her during this. (Also, I went door to door in my neighborhood in attempt to find the owner before she was put down,)” Christina emails.
Several neighbors did remember having seen the cat, she said. “I would like it if anyone recognizes the kitty that they call Maple Leaf Veterinary Care Center for information at (206) 524-2020. Thank you.”
The Maple Leaf Vet, at 1321 N.E. 80th St., has previously offered to put up fliers for lost pets, and to scan them for microchips.Tweet
