Schmucker arrived at Action for Animals one busy weekend in late April. Look closely at his eyes – he recently had surgery at AFA to open them! He saw for the very first time after his surgery.
Schmucker had a condition called entropion where the eyelids roll back on the eye. Entropion can cause severe irritation and injury to the eye. Left untreated this condition damages the cornea and results in loss of vision.
Fortunately for 10 month old Schmucker, his condition was treated in time. When he first opened his eyes and saw for the first time, his paw went out reaching for the staff. Schmucker is an adorable, curious, super friendly kitty who would make an excellent companion.
Lauren’s Wing is delighted to have provided the funding to make his surgery possible!
