Please contact Mona ( for more information about this pet.We were told Leonard  was hit by a car and was taken to the county shelter on May 25. He was treated with anti-inflammatories and pain meds (morphine). The county did not do xrays although we were told he had a broken jaw.

No owners came to get him so the county shelter transferred him to our rescue group on June 3 (a big thank you to our volunteer Nancy Allen who went to the shelter, signed him out -- a long process -- and drove him to us).

After letting him settle in for a couple of days, we noticed he had some vision issues. Even though we would set a plate of fresh canned food in the front of his cage, he couldn't find it right away - we had to point his nose right at the plate.

June 8:  Our vet did an exam and found no recent signs of broken jaw. His jaw moves normally and she did a thorough exam of his entire face. She agreed he cannot see normally. She advised no vaccines should be given at this time, his immune system is already taxed enough right now with his healing. He obviously was given vaccines prior to this, because he is eartipped which means he was living outdoors, and was fixed and vaccinated as part of a cat colony.

We are going to give Leonard a bit more time to heal then take him to the eye specialist.

June 23: we have an appointment tomorrow with the eye specialist in Orlando. We also have a fundraiser to help cover this expense:
