FALLEN OR THROWN FROM THE ROOF?
It is a story that we hear much too often -- a young child left unattended with a pet. Many injured and dead animals have come through our doors because of children who were not supervised by the adults in the home.
This young male kitten was allowed out on an adjacent rooftop to its home in Newark. A child in the home was also on the roof with the kitten but came back into the house. A neighbor alerted the homeowner that their kitten was laying on the ground. The owner brought it to the Society on a Sunday when our veterinarian was not in. She had no money and no means to get it to an emergency veterinary hospital. The Society accepted the 3 month old male which she surrendered without charge.
An x-ray and an examination the following day revealed a fracture which has since been pinned. He is a loving kitten who is in need of a responsible lifetime commitment. File 60974-M (Newark).
