Greta and Eli – Two for One
“November 2004. Election day. Philadelphia. I was covering for a colleague at the Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania who was on sabbatical – supervising the ICU. I passed through the busy Emergency Room on my way to the ICU. In the incubator was a badly injured 12-week old orange kitten. He was a stray; brought in by someone who saw him hit by a car a few hours prior. He was in shock and had head trauma resulting in neurologic dysfunction and multiple facial fractures.
