Vincent is a beautiful four year old cat, with a rich black coat and a lot of love and companionship to offer. Unfortunately, Vincent’s past is a sad story to tell.
It was the 9th of October, 2016, when a volunteer for One By One Animal Advocates got a call from her sister. The sister had found Vincent and thought he had been hit by a car. She could not afford his veterinary care so she immediately informed One By One Animal Advocates and they took him into their care.
Vincent was rushed to the local emergency room where he was sedated and staff began cleaning the maggots out of his eyes, mouth and throat, while administering pain medication to keep him comfortable. It was obvious Vincent was in extreme pain, but above all, he remained calm, loving and constantly purred in appreciation for the help he was receiving. Vincent’s resilience was evident and a true reflection of his bravery in the face of adversity.
The team of volunteers knew they had to help Vincent so an application was forwarded to ISF for an emergency grant to help this little fighter who wanted to live. The application was approved and Vincent was sent to the Proctorville Animal Clinic. There, he was treated for several fractures to his face and a broken jaw.
Vincent had a long road of recovery in front of him as he was tube fed before he was able to eat on his own once again. Vincent recovered well and was adopted by his foster mother who was in love with him from day one. He is now living the high life filled with love and happiness.
