World, meet Evander. He’s tiny, young, cute, and cuddly, and sadly, has been run over by a car and has quite the medical journey ahead of him. Taken in by the Kitty Bungalow Charm School for Wayward Cats, (you can read my interview with them here – I really like them) Evander is a happy little kitten despite his injuries. His medical care was taken very seriously and the team decided that his positive attitude mixed with his healthy appetite and desire to play were signs that they should go ahead with the surgeries and give him a chance at a long, happy life. So, what’s Evander like?
Well, first, he’s missing an ear, but cuteness this strong cannot be contained or marred by a missing ear. Also, his tail was amputated because of the damage it sustained in the accident. It’s just a little shorter than average, but we all know it’s not about length, it’s about how you wag it. In addition, he may need to have a leg amputated, although there is some hope that they can still save it. I can attest first hand that missing a leg does not preclude one from jumping on counters or getting into general kitty mischief. Besides, I heard he has a mean right hook to make up for it. Finally, Evander needs to have a plate put into his pelvis. Evander is currently medically stable and waiting for his repairs whilst eating like a little piggy and purring up a storm.
Evander will be adoptable after the surgeries and some lucky person will be able to take this beautiful little guy home to be his/her lifelong reminder of tenacity and spirit. Until then, Kitty Bungalow could really use some monetary support to cover his expenses. Anyone who donates will be updated on his condition as new details come in. You can donate directly to the Kitty Bungalow Emergency Medical Savings fund here. (If you’re outside the US and have trouble with that page, you can donate to the scholarship fund through PayPal here.)
If you think you’d like to make a donation to help Evander return to health, or you would be interested in adopting him after he’s well, please contact Kitty Bungalow in Los Angeles, CA. Evander has already survived a lot, and it would be wonderful if he had a loving home waiting for him.
