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.
