These images may be disturbing to some viewers. We are so thankful this kitty is safe and has been treated. Sparkle Cat Rescue was contacted by one of our supporters on July 16, 2015, with a request for help in rehoming several kittens that were born to a stray mama. This young boy; however, needed immediate attention.
".... I am concerned about one of them. I can't pay a vet but I do not want the poor thing to suffer either. The kids named it Izzy. Izzy acts fine but there is a worm or parasite or something that has made a hole in her anal area and it looks really bad. I literally broke down in tears when I saw it a little while ago and came straight in to start seeing what I could do, find a place to take it. I am not even sure if Izzy is male or female because I can't bear to look."
We got back in touch with the caretaker and got photographs of the kitty. We sent photos to Dr. East and immediately got an appointment and caretaker rushed Izzy to Greensboro. It was found to be a bot and it was removed. Dr. East took care of Izzy for several days while we waited for a foster home to become available. Izzy will be with a Sparkle Cat Rescue foster for just a few days until she is transferred to another rescue group.
We are so glad we could help this precious baby get better and find a rescue to take him in. Our foster homes are full and we are over capacity with kittens and cats in our program but we could not turn our backs on this sweet boy. Thank you so much to the love and care that Dr. East provided to him.

Sparkle Cat Rescue contacted to help me.

After getting photos of my rear, Sparkle Cat Rescue forwarded to Dr. Linda East to get an appointment. I was rushed to Greensboro by my original rescuer/caretaker.
This is a bot fly, removed from my rear thanks to Dr. East!
Time to start flushing and cleaning and make sure I am a healthy boy. I'm staying with Dr. East so she can keep a close eye on me and make sure I heal with no complications. I have a rescue waiting to take me in.
I am healing very nicely.
With regular washes and flushing of my wound site, I am healing very well! I'm a sweet boy!
I'm a BOY!
I'm so little...look at the size of my itty bitty litter pan. Thank you so much to Dr. East for taking such good care of me!
