When Xylo’s prior owner passed away, no one was left to care for him. The groundskeeper found him and noticed he was barely moving. It was unknown how long he had been neglected. He had severe muscle damage and was barely able to stand. Upon arrival, he was covered in urine, feces, and maggots, but was still full of purrs and love as if to say he was grateful and ready to be healed.
Xylo was one of the toughest cases to arrive in 2020. Maggots were eating his skin and he was unable to urinate on his own. His fur was clipped and he was bathed and comforted before receiving intensive care. The medical team carefully removed the parasites, relieved his bladder blockage, and planned supportive care for his recovery.
In just a few short weeks, Xylo fully recovered! His determination was unmatched, and all hearts at the shelter were touched by his survival. He loves people and was happy to just sit in a lap and be brushed. He found a loving home soon after with an understanding adopter who was ready to provide all he needed.
The adopter reports that today Xylo is healthy and happy! He is a very affectionate cat who loves his new home and sits by his dad’s bed meowing when he wants breakfast.
