Mariposa - Found Injured, Emaciated on the Street



We can only imagine what this poor creature endured before coming to us a few days ago. This beautiful young lady is Mariposa, a 2 to 3 year old Siamese mix. A couple were jogging through Wells Mills Park in Waretown when they came across this helpless little girl. It only took one look at her to realize that something was wrong with the little cat. These kind people approached the frightened kitty and realized that she was not at all a feral cat. She welcomed the attention from them and allowed them to pick her up and bring her straight to us at Popcorn Park.

We were very saddened to see the state of this beautiful kitty when she came in. She was obviously someone's pet at some point, and she had been terribly neglected. She was literally skin and bones. She had a large wound on her back that looked to be from some time ago, as it started to heal and scab over, but you could actually see her tiny hip bones nearly protruded through her weakened skin. Although she was obviously in a great deal of discomfort, Mariposa purred gently while she was being examined and she seemed quite relieved to finally be getting some help.

Our veterinarian Dr. Baris immediately recognized that Mariposa was exhibiting signs of pyometra. Pyometra is a severe infection of the uterus and can be life-threatening if left untreated. Once Dr. Baris anesthetized Mariposa and began her spay procedure, she found that her suspicions were correct, and Mariposa did indeed have pyometra. The uterus has been removed and we are confident that this little lady will make a complete recovery.

Mariposa is feeling much better now and has a healthy appetite as well. We're sure that her skeletal frame will be a bad memory soon, and that she will be a plump, happy, healthy cat in no time. We are so appreciative of our generous supporters that contribute to our Res-Q Fund. This fund is what enables us to give a happy ending to so many sad stories that we see on a daily basis. Please make a donation to our Res-Q Fund.

Once Mariposa has recovered from her procedure, this pretty little girl would love a wonderful, safe and loving home of her own. Please contact our Forked River facility at 609-693-1900. File #L23358.
