The kitten is doing great! The Volunteers named her “Button” (or Pugovka – in Russian) because of her make-shift wiring. The swelling on the jaws has subsided and now she can eat on her own. Also the rotten odor that was coming from her jaws is gone.
Button is receiving shots of antibiotics daily and all her stitches are being disinfected after feeding.
The only problem Button faces is the emotional: when she hears male’s voice, she starts crying very loudly. We suspect that whoever physically abused her was a male. The good news is that Button is in good hands and we hope that she will soon recover physically as well as emotionally.
Button is a very polite lovely cat, she uses her litter box, eats well on her own and snoozes all day long. After her complete recovery the Volunteers will be looking for her forever home.
Please help us make a difference in lives of many animals like Button. Please donate. Any amount will go a long way in Russia.
