During last February 14, while everyone celebrated Valentine’s Day, a street cat was shot by an arrow in his eye. The cruel act almost kills him, but happily some rescuers, in U.S (USA), acted fast and was operated to save his life. His story went viral in Instagram in a matter of minutes.
A woman was in her home located in Hardy County, in VirginiaWhen he found the injured cat on his porch and alerted, he contacted rescuers. Seeing the terrible situation of the feline, who had a 5-inch arrow crossed from the corner of his right eye inwards, they decided to take him to a nearby veterinary doctor where he was given some pain relievers, but they could not perform the surgery.
That’s how rescuers went to the ‘Arlington Animal Welfare League’, who picked up the animal on Saturday and took it to the emergency room to give him some medications and take x-rays. Only one day later the cat entered surgery and it was precisely there that he got his figurative name.
“We called him Cupid partly because they found him on Valentine’s Day and also because of how incredibly sweet and affectionate he was, despite feeling so much pain and discomfort.”, a spokeswoman said.
After performing the surgery, veterinarians discovered that the arrow had not affected any major organ or artery but had caused a large infection. The process took almost two hours and despite the pain the cat reacted positively: “He is doing well today, but our next obstacle is fighting the severe infection he has from the arrow wound. All he wants to do is eat and snuggle up. ”they added.
The expenses of the procedure were around $ 6,500, so the ‘Animal Welfare League’ requested the support of donors through the website “For Cupid, with love” and thus complete the payment of the bill. Surprisingly, the group’s social networks made public in their account Instagram that in less than a week a total of $ 65,000 had been raised, exceeding 10 times the requested figure.
The group also announced that the remaining money will be used to treat other animals that arrive in an emergency situation. Currently, ‘Cupido’ is recovering favorably and has its own account to keep its followers aware of their status.
