“Chester had clearly suffered trauma to one of his eyes and it had ruptured,” Sarah recounted.

Taking the Risk
Chester had been diagnosed with Feline Leukemia, a life-long virus that weakened his immune system.

A Paw-sitive Patient
Sarah knew the surgery was his only chance at survival.

Two days, Chester was taken to the vet for surgery where had his eye removed and was neutered.

The vet described Chester’s procedure as one of the most painful experiences a cat can have.
