Zeke-relaxing in his cage while his new Mom fills
out his adoption paperwork
Three cheers for Zeke!
Zeke, now known as Tanner, was adopted last week after a few months of rehab at our shelter and at Dr Capwell's office. Many of you remember that Zeke came to us in late June after having what appeared to be a firecracker explode in his rear end. The victim of a heartless prankster.
Zeke was in excruciating pain, but through it all, remained a sweet boy and even drooled like a teething infant when you gave him a good chin scratching. Zeke's road to recover was a bit bumpy as his burns were scarring, causing constriction of his rectal tissue. Lucky for Zeke, Dr Capwell was willing to give him a chance and performed a life-saving surgery, a skin graft to be exact, to remove the scarred, constricted skin and replace it with healthy tissue so his poopy problems are gone. Whodathunk we'd get so excited over a cat pooping normal?! After a week at the doctor's hospital Zeke was given the green light to be adopted.
We heard from his new Mom just today and she has let us know that Zeke, now Tanner, is doing great and is adjusting well to his new cat friends and family.
Help us celebrate Zeke's success by sponsoring one of our animals currently receiving care at our shelter or in one of our loving foster homes.
Zeke-in his carrier and ready for take off
to his new family!
