More Info

Sylvie was abandoned by her owners who had moved without her. She was left in a moldy wet cardboard box in the middle of winter outside their basement door. She was suffering from hunger, thirst, and an injury to the side of her head. Her ear was bleeding and badly infected. She didn't have a name.

I picked her up, wrapped her in a towel, took her home, bathed her, and cleaned her ear. And I gave her a name. Sylvie is a precious girl, who is very loving, vocal, and affectionate. She was very thirsty and hungry when I rescued her, and she was in a lot of pain. I gave her a warm place to sleep, and I gave her the love that every animal deserves.

Unfortunately, I still have not been able to turn her situation completely around. There are days she still suffers in pain. I have been able to give her the comfort of living indoors, and  greatly decrease the swelling in her ear. But she has a chronic infection. My favorite thing to do is pick her up and hold her like a baby every day when I come home. I want her to be with me for a long time... before I found her, I kept dreaming about getting a kitten.

My poor Sylvie deserves to have the medical care she needs to be a healthy, happy girl. I pray that someone can help her in the way I haven't yet been able.

I could never afford the veterinary bill for the surgery she needs to remove the polyps in her ear, and they cause her to have infections in her ear that never go away, and due to the mess she has to live in a kennel. I would love for her to be free to roam the house.

Sylvie's favorite things are her toys, she won't sleep without them. Please share Sylvie's story.
