An adorable 2-month-old kitten arrived at the San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS) on Sept. 23 in urgent need of love and extra care.
He was found abandoned behind a car dealership with his ears and tail missing. It appears that someone purposely cut them off before he was rescued and taken to the SAHS.
SAHS veterinarians and staff were determined to make him feel safe and loved again. They named him Gunner and gave him the special care he desperately needed. They gently cleaned his ears, shaved and cleaned his tail, and applied a special cream to help treat his wounds. He also received pain medication and laser therapy on his ears and tail to help stimulate the healing process.
Following his treatment, Gunner was sent to a loving foster family to continue his recovery and slowly began to trust people again. Generous SAHS supporters also donated special litter that Gunner needed while his wounds healed.
After several weeks of love and cuddles, this sweet boy is doing much better and is now ready to find his “purr-fect” home.
“He does the cutest little meows, and once he trusts you, loves to be petted and receive kisses,” his foster mom said. “He would make the perfect addition to any loving family.”
