“He was alert, his eyes were wide open, ( he was) skinny as a rail, very dehydrated, and probably was in his last few days,“ Nall said of Lucky’s condition after he was freed from the tree.
Family friend Debbie Wilkes immediately transported Lucky to his veterinarian in Bishopville.
“He was running a temperature and they immediately put him on antibiotics, started IV fluids and gave him vitamin shots and offered him a can of food and he ate it all up,“ Wilkes said.
The cat lost nearly half his body weight, but is expected to recover. Link -via Arbroath
