When Frog the cat was found he was a starving; flea covered stray dragging his dead leg behind him. Thankfully, a wonderful woman from a Greek rescue organization Second Chance Animal Rescue Society, or SCARS, saw a video of Frog which was posted on Facebook. Korniliou contacted the woman who shot the video and told her that SCARS would like to take Frog.
“She was very happy about that,” Korniliou told The Dodo. Two volunteers at SCARS donated money so that Frog would be able to fly to Athens (where SCARS is located) to get help as soon as possible.
“He was smelly and thin,” Korniliou stated. “Whenever he smelled food he started crying.”
“The wound on his paw was very smelly, and he was dragging the back leg, which had taken awkward and unnatural positions,” Korniliou stated.
“His pelvis was broken and was stuck, not in the right way,” Korniliou said. “The back leg has no feeling from knee down.”After a course of antibiotics and vitamins, Frog was making great progress. And he was feasting. “He was eating like he has never seen food before”.
On Friday, Frog went into surgery. What doctors found helped to illuminate the painful past that led Frog to be in such horrible shape: A bullet was actually lodged in his little body.
Luckily, the surgery went very well.
“Our goal is to transform Frog into a prince by making him well and by finding a forever home for him,” Korniliou, who is currently fostering Frog, concluded.
