Non-profit shelter works to heal badly hurt kitten

Temperatures in New York City these days are barely reaching 20 degrees, and that is not good news for the many homeless cats and kittens struggling to find warmth. Cybil, a 9-month old orange tabby kitten is one of these unfortunate creatures. Cybil arrived at the Bideawee animal shelter in Manhattan with a broken paw that was bleeding. The staff at the shelter believed she injured herself while trying to warm up by resting her front paw on a car engine, and her paw must have gotten stuck in the motor.

Veterinarians at Bideawee have been working non-stop to treat her wound by giving her painkillers and antibiotics to prevent infection. Cybil will have to have surgery, but that will be very costly for the non-profit, no-kill animal shelter, and will need help in meeting the expenses.

Please consider making a tax-deductable donation today to help end Cybil’s suffering by clicking here.Bideawee, 410 East 38th St., (212) 532-6395. The shelter is open Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., Wednesdays and Thursdays from Noon until 7 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
