Phoenix Update – Burned Kitten Walks on Bandages

We are delighted and grateful Phoenix came to Helen Woodward Animal Center. He gives the gift of unconditional love to every staff member he meets and knows. Phoenix is still undergoing medical treatment for his burns; his paws must be re-bandaged and cleaned every day. You can read Phoenix’s first update here.

Dr. Oba says, “His nose and chin are healing well.  His ears are healing, but slowly.  His paws have improved a little.  We discovered that he really, REALLY loves chin rubs.”

And if you view Phoenix’s new video, you will see that he is walking much better with his bandages:

Thank you for all your well-wishes and encouragement! We will keep you updated on Phoenix’s continuing progress.

Phoenix gets supervised walks every day, so he can continue to strengthen his muscles.
