2-month-old Fancy arrived at KHS fighting for her life. Her little body was viciously torn apart when she was caught in a vehicle's fan belt after she fell asleep under a car hood seeking warmth. She had lacerations all over her face and a hole in her frontal sinus making it difficult for her to breathe. The fan belt also mangled poor Fancy's legs and ripped off the tiny toes from her back left paw. By the time she arrived at the Kentucky Humane Society, her near-fatal injuries were weeping with infection and her puny, painful cries shattered our hearts. We weren't sure if she would survive, but we were determine to do everything we could for sweet Fancy.
Our veterinary team gave her I.V. fluids and pain medications, sutured the hold in her sinus, dressed her wounds and syringe-fed her until she was strong enough to eat independently again. They took every opportunity to snuggle and encourage the frail baby, and Fancy even made air biscuits to show her gratitude. We couldn't help but fall in love with her.
Finally, Fancy was stable enough to enter a loving foster home. That's where she met Abby, who had also spent months recovering from injuries caused by a terrible accident. The bond between Fancy and Abby was instant. These kindred spirits seemed to understand each other and give each other comfort. Now, these two survivors are inseparable best friends.
