It was March 10 when many of you first read about the kitten Brady being born without eyelids (eyelid agenesis), and his lashes turning inward and rubbing on his corneas.
His first surgery was performed at the end of April and the Community Animal Network has noticed that Brady is squinting again. His recent exam found two lashes had re-grown.
The network needs to raise $350 for his second procedure that would stop the remaining lashes from causing him discomfort, which could lead to blindness if not corrected.
"Eye Care For Animals" in Tustin is the only hospital in the county that can perform the procedure. We have received a "rescue discount" for the procedure, which would use a tiny probe to freeze the lashes under a general anesthetic.
Readers might be surprised to learn that Brady is still available for adoption after all these months. However, many rescue groups are reporting that adoption numbers are down.
