Pinky was discovered in the Bronx this summer with a rusty can stuck on her head.

Pinky was discovered in the Bronx this summer with a rusty can stuck on her head.

Last month, Marie, a concerned Bronx resident, contacted the NYC Feral Cat Initiative of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals to request help for Pinky, a young, feral, gray tabby from a local colony, who was in trouble. Marie had spotted her wandering the streets with a rusty, broken can on her head. Unable to eat or drink in the extreme heat of the summer, Pinky was in dire need of assistance.

Marie had tried to get help for Pinky for almost a week, but to no avail. She reached out to the Alliance just in time. Within a matter of hours, Pinky was trapped and brought to a local feral-friendly veterinarian.

First, the vet sedated Pinky so that the can could be removed and she could be examined. Due to the amount of time she spent in the can, she was severely dehydrated, and had sustained some injuries from the metal cutting her skin. The vet administered fluids, antibiotics, and treatment for her wounds. After some TLC, Pinky was ready to be returned to her colony.

“Thank you for helping Pinky…when no one else would! We are very grateful to the Mayor’s Alliance. We tried to get help for a week and then called you. She’s doing great today!” – Marie, Bronx

After being trapped and receiving veterinary treatment, Pinky was returned to her colony.
