Kitten found with severe burns is now up for adoption
PHOENIX (KPHO/Gray News) - A kitten found with severe burns after a fire is on the road to recovery and is up for adoption at the Arizona Humane Society.
Libby is an 11-month-old domestic shorthair cat who has been undergoing treatment for severe burns for months after she was found as an injured stray kitten.
KPHO reports the kitten was found with burned, raw pads, whiskers, ears and nose. She also had melted plastic all over her body covered in the smell of smoke.
Libby was treated intensely for a month, including several surgeries, and underwent three more months of recovery.
Rescuers said her new hair growth over the once-burned patches is white, adding some fresh color to her coat.
Pets up for adoption at the Arizona Humane Society have a $20 adoption fee until the end of July.
