Brooklyn Animal Action rescuer Tara recently responded to an email about a three-legged kitten that was seen in Midwood, Brooklyn. Local Brooklyn Animal Action rescuer, Christie Fazio, set out to rescue the kitten, and fortunately, she was successful. They named the kitten Viktor, after the man who first saw him, and learned when they came to his aid that he'd had one of his legs bitten off! (Another of his hind legs also has a bite wound.)
The vet doesn't know how Viktor is still alive after such an injury. Viktor's will to survive is just that strong! Currently, the wound is infected and there is no skin to close up the open injury.
Viktor is staying at the vet receiving IV antibiotics and laser treatments. The infection has to resolve before he can have surgery and he most likely will need more than one surgery later on so he can live a happy, healthy, three-legged life. For now, we're hoping to raise the funds to treat Viktor and get him ready for his life-saving surgeries.
Please help us save sweet little Viktor!
