Ana and Elsa, along with their two siblings, were rescued from a garden in Cabra with severely compromised eyes. Ana was born with 40% of her eyelids, and Elsa was born with no eyelids at all. If left untreated, this could have resulted in losing their eyes. Thanks to help from our supporters, we were able to arrange surgeries for the Cabra 4 with the amazing Mike Woods at Primrose Hill Veterinary Clinic. Mike is the best eye specialist in the country! Ana had a wedge resection performed on both eyes to create eyelids. Elsa had a lip to lid graft, where pieces of the outside corners of her lips were used to create eyelids for her. The next step is for both to have cryotherapy treatment to kill the hair follicles around their eyes to prevent hairs from poking them. So far we think Ana will live a completely normal life. Elsa will most likely need daily eyedrops.
Ana is beautiful calico and white girl. She is very sweet and loves to be held, kissed, carried, and to sleep on her foster mam’s lap. Ana loves to play with her siblings and the resident cats. She spent her early life with other dogs and cats, and got along great with them as well. Ana loved the doggies, and would crawl all over them, play with their tails, and sleep on top of them. If Ana is homed around doggies, they must be docile and used to cats interacting with them in this way.
Elsa is a striking calico with white paws. She is the most independent out of her siblings, and loves to play and climb! She likes to be petted, and will sleep near you on the couch or cuddle on her own terms. She sometimes likes to knead on her foster mama and suckle on her shirt. Elsa sometimes forgets she has claws, but is getting better at controlling them. Elsa loves to play with her siblings and the resident cats. She spent her early life with other dogs and cats, and got along great with them as well. Elsa will most likely need eye drops daily for her lifetime, so her adopter must be willing and able to do this.
