Deluca Can See!

Deluca came to us with a number of serious physical problems.  At only 3 and a half years old, she was suffering from allergies, ear infections, a tail that was so corkscrewy it was causing her pain and constant infections, and she was going blind from adolescent cataracts.

 Several months ago, Deluca had a portion of her tail amputated.  You can see the before and after photos here.

 She's much more comfortable now that she no longer has that tailbone.

Last week, Deluca successfully underwent cataract surgery.  Though there were a few complications in the days immediately following the surgery, there is improvement and there is reason to be hopeful that Deluca's vision is improving. 

Here is the note her foster mom sent:  "Deluca has had some complications following her cataract removal surgery, but I am happy to report yesterday and today she is doing really well. Look at her new brown eyes. No more grey eyes. She follows me with her eyes when I move around and is definitely seeing. I just don't know how much she is seeing. Wish her luck in her recovery. More updates to come."

Our supporters and donors made these surgeries possible.  Thank you so much for the gift of Deluca's bright eyes.  From top to tail, she's in great shape!
All she needs now is a family, hints
