ANJELLICLE CATS RESCUE wrote -
A call for help came in to Anjellicle about a horrible injury to Manengue , a beloved neighborhood cat in Brooklyn, NY. The cat's tail was found in the street Thursday morning. With great anguish the people who cared for the cat searched for him- only to find him alive, scared and suffering- his tail ripped from his body, leaving a gaping bloody wound and rendering him with an unsteady walk using his hind legs. X-rays show a shattered pelvis requiring a specialist. After his surgery, only time will tell if the nerve center around the base of the tail will recover enough for the cat to be fully functioning in his lower extremities. This means walking, and being able to eliminate waste on his own. Some feel it was a speeding car that hit the cat and took it's tail. The vet still has not ruled out malicious intent.
