Meet Swiff (aka Swiffer)!!! This little guy is an 8-10 week old kitten weighing in at 2.5 lbs, and he was thrown out of a car on June 18, 2013. HE NEEDS YOUR HELP!!!

Luck for this little guy, a friend of mine was driving behind the car who so carelessly threw Swiff out. As soon as they saw it was a cat who had been thrown from the car, they rushed to his side while he was trying to drag himself to safety. That's when I was called. My friend was unable to keep him and care for him. Even though I am a struggling graduate student, I COULD NOT turn my head or my heart away from this helpless little guy. He was bleeding from his nose and could not walk. Swiff would not eat or drink anything. Since the terrible night this guy was so carelessly "disposed of," I have taken him to the vet.

What the vet has found:
Swiff was infested with fleas.
Swiff had a tick in his left armpit.
Swiff was suffering from head trauma as a result of being thrown from the car.
Swiff has significant nerve damage in his front left leg from being thrown from the car.

The vets do not know if Swiff will ever regain the use in his front left leg, but for the meantime, he just folds that little paw over and uses it to slide on while gliding across laminate and hard wood floors (hence the name Swiff). He also has to be seen by the vet for several follow-up injury visits to monitor his leg and to ensure there are no further effects from the head trauma.

Swiff's first vet visit and kitten supplies totaled over $500, and he still needs the follow-up vet visits, all of his kitten shots and deworming, and to be neutered, so please, if you can find it in your heart to donate even a dollar to this little guy's fund, he and I will forever be appreciative.
