Breed: Short Hair Cat
Update – Haymitch
Haymitch received his wings today.
Haymitch underwent a CT scan and subsequent surgery earlier today. Sadly, the trauma he received to his head and face proved to be too severe: Haymitch’s skull had multiple fractures, and the surgery was a very difficult one. Unfortunately, Haymitch’s fragile body gave out under anesthesia. The surgical team made all possible efforts to revive this sweet kitty, but it was in vain.
We are heartbroken over this. We will always love Haymitch, and he will always remain a member of The Arrow Fund family.
Even though we lost this precious kitty, our efforts to try to save him resulted in a very large medical bill. We are asking for donations for the many animals in our care . Donations can me made on our website at www.thearrowfund.org and checks may be mailed to The Arrow Fund P.O. Box 1127 Prospect, Kentucky 40059.
I want to say thank you to everyone for supporting us. This has been a very difficult time for us.

NEW CASE – MEET HAYMITCH -HE IS CRITICAL
FRACTURED MANDIBLE (LOWER JAW) AND POSSIBLE FRACTURED MAXILLA (UPPER JAW)
WE RECEIVED A CALL LATE YESTERDAY FROM OHIO COUNTY, KENTUCKY YESTERDAY . THIS CAT CAME IN WITH WHAT LOOKS TO BE A BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA INJURY TO THE FACE.
Haymitch spent the night in the oxygen tank at Blue Pearl .Radiographs were done by the attending Vets upon arrival. . We will speak to the surgeon after she does a full evaluation of the case. Plans are to proceed with surgery today . The mandible is fractured for sure and the maxilla will be evaluated once surgery is underway. All will depend on what our surgeon feels is the best plan for this sweet boy. Haymitch is on IV fluids, pain meds, and anti-biotics . Most likely Haymitch will require a feeding tube , he is unable to eat or drink in this condition . Did I mention how sweet this beautiful boy is ?
Our thanks to Cheryl for acting quickly and providing immediate transport for Haymitch .
