Little Mister, a blind and underage kitten, was surrendered to Seattle Humane when his owners could no longer care for him. He came in with an infection and he was also diagnosed with feline panleukopenia, a highly contagious and often fatal virus affecting cats and kittens. Little Mister recovered from panleukopenia, but unfortunately his eye infection was so severe that our veterinary team needed to remove his eyes to relieve the pain. Little Mister’s heart stopped beating during his surgery, but he was saved thanks to a veterinary technician who manually kept it beating for 20 minutes. After the procedure, Little Mister went home with one of our dedicated foster volunteers. She fell in love with this now-healthy, playful kitten and adopted him!
