Little Mila, (short for Milagra), is VERY THANKFUL to her kitty heroes Ishmael and Tonni, for saving her life in time for Thanksgiving!
On Monday we got a call from Town of Mead Colorado Animal Control Officer Ishmael Aldana asking if we could help him remove a cat whose head was stuck in the drainage hole of a dumpster at a local business, and get her medical help. He had been contacted by the business who believed she had been stuck in the hole for at least 48 hours! Tonni and Ishmael found a twelve week old kitten who must have gotten stuck trying to get into the dumpster to eat when they arrived at the site. Our kitty savior Tonni has this to say of Mila's rescue!
"She was worn out by the time we started working, but Ismael sedated her, greased her neck, and then we were able to work on both sides (inside and out) easing her head through. What a very compassionate and skilled ACO Ishmael is. He came up with a wonderful plan to get the kitty out of the hole and into my carrier."
Ishmael nicknamed the little kitty "Catillac". Thank You so much Ishmael for your compassion and for all that you did for the little Miracle kitty.
We are Thankful to the LHS clinic and Dr Depauw for working little Mila into their schedule. Dr DePauw checked her over, and the clinic staff cleaned off the grease and took very good care of her.
She is at Tonni's house now, and is super hungry and tired, but doing very well.
We will try and tame her to help her find a human home adoption. Otherwise, we will find her a barn home when she is a bit older.
LFFAC adventures, stories and maybe even a cute cat video every now & then.
