What's this?

The collar was so deeply embedded into Toby that the flesh around it was swollen and oozing with the infection that set in.

Found with the collar lodged under his left front leg, he had obviously been stuck for a long time. It was good news for him that he got caught in a TNR (trap neuter release) trap at a local feral colony - he is definitely not feral! When staff found him they immediately took him to the vet.

Toby loves everyone and he needs your help to cover the cost of the emergency surgery required to remove the embedded collar and to ensure he gets the medicine he needs to make a full recovery from the infection raging through his little body.

You can help Toby heal. You can make Toby purr!
