“Spike was picked up by a local municipal animal control officer on the streets of Warren, Michigan. His eyes were sealed up with infection and pus, he was malnourished and full of parasites. Just a tiny, 10-week-old kitten who couldn’t see and could barely breathe. He was rushed to an emergency vet and spent 2 weeks in the hospital.

“Spike still is unable to see since one eye was removed and the other is completely scarred, but he is a content (fat) kitten! He’s living his best life with his new brother, Mr. Jinx. They play together on their catio and snuggle-sleep together on their foster mom’s bed. Life couldn’t be sweeter.

“Rescue Bank provides the nutritional resources our shelter cats need so we can afford emergency veterinary bills, like Spike’s. Without Rescue Bank, we wouldn’t be able to help kittens.”
