Three months after he was found following a terrible series of events, Spotty cat was reunited with his family today. Spotty’s home burned, he went missing, and he was hit by a car. He received medical treatment and recuperated in foster care before finally rejoining his petmom, in an emotional reunion.
Spotty Cat was missing for four days after a fire destroyed his home on N. 60th St in Philladelphia, PA on October 25th, 2013, and Red Paw Emergency Relief Team was looking for him. He was discovered after being hit by a car and was brought to Ryan Veterinary Hospital at Penn Vet by a good Samaritan, covered in soot and smelling of smoke. The vet staff follow Red Paw Emergency Relief Team’s Facebook page and knew that red Paw was looking for a cat fitting the injured kitty’s description, so they called to say they had him.
Spotty spent a night in the vet’s O2 chamber due to smoke inhalation, but most of his issues were related to the trauma caused when he was hit by the car. He had a broken jaw with multiple fractures that required surgery to wire the jaw. He had head injuries, needed a feeding tube, and ended up losing an eye but, in Red Paw’s words, “was a fighter and never complained. ”
Spotty and his family had a very long road of recovery ahead of them but thanks to his amazing foster, Mary and his thousands of supporters Red Paw was able to cover his medical care. which totaled more than $6000, and after almost 3 months of operations and rehab, Spotty was reunited with his owner on January 19th, 2014.
His canine sibling, Wolf will be reunited with him and his owners tomorrow and his feline siblings will be reunited later this week.
