On February 27, 2015 a kitty came very close to his death. A dog had gotten a hold of this sweet boy and bit down on his head. The dog's tooth punctured through the cat's sinus cavity, causing him to spend a couple days in the E.R. While at the E.R. the cat received the name "Trooper" for how brave he was during his stay. Once back at the rescue, Trooper recovered fully until he found his perfect human. Nowadays Trooper, who is known as Orange Kitty, spends his days basking in the sun, chasing his little kitty sisters around, or enjoying a good treat.
