One evening a little over a month ago, I received an email from a feral caregiver that described a horrific state that a cat was in who he cared for. Oftentimes people exaggerate when they describe such tales, but in this case, it was all true. OB1 was being cared for as an outdoor cat in Fort Worth, and his caregiver talked about how his eye seemed to have been dislodged from the socket and become infected. Due to the quick action of one of our volunteers, Teresa Jennings, a trap was taken over that evening and the cat was caught right away. He was taken to Dr. Morris at the Animal Hospital of Southwest Fort Worth, where he had surgery to remove the eye completely. It is not uncommon for ferals to have eyes removed, but in OB1's case, it was one of the worst injuries we have encountered.
