Angel is a 5 month old tabby and white domestic shorthair. She has been spayed and fully vaccinated. Angel was found as a tiny stray, by the co-worker of a CCHS volunteer. Something was very wrong with little Angel's eyes and the "good Samaritan" asked if CCHS could secure the veterinary care that Angel so obviously needed. Angel was referred to a veterinary optical specialist who has diagnosed her with a very severe case of "dry eye".....in other words, she is not adequately producing tears. Because of this, her eyes become dry and very irritated. Since this problem was so obvious at such an early age, her little eyes began to form scar tissue in attempt to to protect themselves...her tiny body was fighting back. Now being closely monitored by the specialist, Angel is on the road to recovery. For the time being, she requires eye drops each day, but that may or may not be the case in the future. Hopefully, some of the scar tissue will be minimized as time and treatment continues, and her doctor assures us that she has NO VISION PROBLEMS. Being a "special needs" cat could really be an issue when it comes to Angel being what is considered "adoptable". However, her eye drops are not expensive and she may not even need them at some future point in time. Since her sight is not affected, she functions just fine, and does all the things that any "normal" kitten would do. Anyone who would like to adopt this really sweet baby, who has really not had a good run of luck so far in her short little life, should call Robin at 70/478-7531.
