Stitch3MachrayStitch is a young stray cat who was brought to Machray Animal Hospital by a concerned citizen on Monday, November 23, 2015 with a serious wound on his side. The vets at Machray suspect that he may have been seeking refuge under the hood of a car and sustained an injury from the fan belt. Stich is a great reminder to always tap on the hood of your car before starting it in the winter, and to keep your cats indoors.

Stich after surgery to repair the damage likely caused by a fan beltThe vets at Machray performed a surgery on November 25 to remove all the dead and diseased tissue and repair the damage. He is on antibiotics and pain relief, and his surgical drains will come out in 3 days. Thanks to Machray in all their hard work to give this sweet kitten a second chance!

We agreed to take this sweet little guy in and he was transfered to our care after a few days of recovery Machray Animal Hospital. Stitch has been receiving hyrdotherapy to keep his flushed out as well as antibiotics and painkillers. He's getting lots of TLC from the staff and volunteers at the A.R.C. who have fallen in love with this little guy!STITCH1
