Daisy and Riesling were 8 week old torti tabby kittens. They were born with eyelid agenesis which is the incomplete formation of the eyelid. Their lashes rubbed on the surface of their eyes which caused corneal edema from the lashes rubbing. We had to act quickly to save their eyesight and stop any corneal ulcerations. A second surgery was needed and performed to perfect the correction of the lid.
The surgery was not cosmetic; it was essential to safeguard their vision and stop the irritation and pain of their lashes rubbing on the surface of their eyes.
Community Animal Network does not kill animals that become too expensive, nor does it restrict an animal from being rescued and adopted into a loving home because of the cost.
