Shelter seeks help for cat injured escaping fire
http://new.bangordailynews.com/2011/04/13/news/downeast... /

CHERRYFIELD The Ark Animal Shelter is seeking funds to help pay for the care of a cat injured in a fire in Whiting last month.

When the cat found itself trapped inside the burning home, it was forced to jump from an upper-story window, according to Ark Manager Lorna Konyak, which resulted in two broken legs and a broken pelvis. Several other cats apparently perished in the blaze.

Konyak said the cat then dragged itself into a nearby barn, where it stayed alone with no food or water for three weeks while its owner was hospitalized with burns suffered in the fire. The cat is a tabby, about 1 year old, and is named Mickey, Konyak said.

Dr. Lydia Pryor of BayView Animal Hospital in East Machias examined the cat for the first time on April 6, when its owner discovered the cat and sought veterinary care.

What a story! I have a polydactyl, and had another till just recently. Poor guy, I hope that he and his owner have better days ahead.

10. Ah, a polydactly to boot -
Look at those paws. She's going to have personality to spare.
