WHMP Dakin Pets Of The Week

Frederick and Charlotte

Fred is 2 months.  Charlotte is 3 months.

Neutered Male.  Spayed Female.

Frederick was found as a stray kitty.  He is cute as a button and Charlotte likes him.  Charlotte was also brought to Dakin as a stray.  She had a degloved tail upon arrival.  That means that some kind of injury tore the fur and skin back on her tail exposing the bone.  As a result of this severe injury, her tail had to be amputated. Charlotte doesn’t let that stop her at all.  Open her cage and she will scurry out faster than a speeding bullet.  Charlotte’s surgery was paid for by the Buddy Fund, a special medical fund to help animals with extraordinary veterinary needs.

Dakin has many kittens right now…all looking for new homes.  It may be Adopt-a-Dog month, but our kittens are rarin’ to go!
