Date of Birth: October, 2009
Biography: Doc's story is truly amazing. His
rescuers, Sue and Mike Moses of Cedar Rapids found him in their garage, and thought at first that he was a dead animal because
the smell was so bad. It turned out he had a badly injured rear leg (we won't go into the gory details about maggots,
etc.). They took him to Frey Pet Hospital, assuming the leg would need to be amputated. But Dr. Ryan Steen decided
to try to save Doc's leg. Doc was quite a trooper, going for frequent bandage changes and receiving lots of antibiotics.
By the time Doc arrived at Witty Kitties, the flesh was starting to return to his leg. After a couple weeks here, his
bandages came off permanently, and he's doing great! His leg has scabbed over, and new fur is starting to grow. By
the time he's all healed no one will be able to tell how serious his injury really was. He's truly a remarkable boy
-- he has loved all the kitties who have shared the infirmary with him, and he lets everyone hold and cuddle him.
He's very, very lucky that he found the right garage to hide in!
