Nearly two months after the Cascade fires were extinguished, a lost cat has been found in a burned out area of Yuba County.
The soot-covered cat, who goes by the name Mariah, was taken to Yuba County Animal Services where their staff determined that not only was she someone’s pet, but she the cat needed the attention of a veterinarian.Photo courtesy of FieldHaven Feline Center
Yuba County officials then reached out to FieldHaven Feline Center for help. A FieldHaven veterinarian, Dr. Heather Kennedy, examined Mariah and determined that she was in very critical condition and needed care beyond what FieldHaven could offer, so the cat was transferred to the care of the U.C. Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital.
After several days Mariah was stabilized and transferred back to the FieldHaven clinic. She still has not fully recovered and the veterinarians believe her prognosis is not good. Even though the staff at FieldHaven is said to be showering Mariah with love and caring for her as best they can, they say she really needs her family.
