Vet Seeks Donations for Blinded Cat

A cat blinded by persons unknown is in need of surgery to stabilize the trauma and prepare him for adoption, and a College Station veterinarian is asking donations to help defray the costs.

Dr. Agnes Rupley is donating her services to treat the 10-pound domestic short-hair tabby tomcat, which she's named Spirit. But she tells The Eagle of Bryan-College Station  that the 7-to-8-month-old cat needs surgery costing up to $2,000 to repair the trauma.

Spirit is playful, sweet-tempered and affectionate. But tissue is growing around the eyes, which Rupley says were gouged with something larger than a needle, and a chronic inflammation can cause cancer.

Donations can be made to the "Care 4 Spirit" fund at First Victoria Bank or at the All Pets Medical & Laser Surgical Center.
