Tucson CARES saves cat
Emma – before surgery

Beading Divas to the Rescue is excited to be fund-raising for Tucson CARES during the month of April 2015.

Upon Pima Animal Care Center’s truck pulling right onto PACC’s property, Emma the cat was removed by Jessica S., Tucson CARES’ director who happened to be on the premises after hours.

Jessica immediately took Emma home, gave the cat pain meds, fluids and offer watered down baby food.

The following morning — without any notice– her vet executed a remarkable reconstruction after performing a mandibulectomy because the lower jaw was fully split and damaged too badly for repair. Emma the cat also received an esophageal feeding tube to support her during recovery.

Emma – ready for adoption

Because of the intensity and concentration of her injury, the vet thought that Emma may have been kicked.

This amazing cat is currently in foster care; she is fully healed and available for adoption. The only special need she has from her injury is when she needs future dental care, as all pets do, although she has very few teeth left, the veterinarian must be mindful that what remains of her lower jaw cannot handle much pressure.

This youngster gets along well with other cats and dogs, tumbles around like a kitten, loves sunbathing in a windowsill, chirping at the birds and adores eye contact and abundant affection from her human, yet she is still very independent.

Contact Tucson CARES at 520-990-8912 or info@tucsoncares.org to learn more about Emma or come visit her at the Adopt Love Adopt Local mega adoption event on April 11 if she’s not adopted by that time.
