Cat With Bullet in Spine Thrives, Needs Forever Home

When animal control officers in Naples, Florida, first found Roger, they didn’t think would make it. The cat had been shot; the bullet was lodged in his spine and he was unable to move at all. But a veterinarian had an idea. Injecting Roger with a steady dose of steroid shots brought about amazing changes. The cat not only survived, but improved by leaps and bounds — literally. Though Roger still has trouble controlling his bladder, and the bullet (under the advice of top surgeons) remains in his spine, an anonymous donor has pledged to pay his medical expenses the rest of his life. Now all Roger needs is a forever home. — Read it at The Dodo
