Violet, our survivor kitty!

Now known as Violet, collar 362, this domestic medium-hair brown calico cat was hit by a car on Wednesday, November 27 near Madison Ave and McKinley in Lakewood. Fortunately for her, a good Samaritan scooped her up and rushed her to the Lakewood Animal Hospital for immediate medical attention.

Lakewood Animal Hospital cared for the young calico through weekend, hoping that her owner would call the shelter or the hospital looking for their lost pet - unfortunately no one has reported a lost calico matching her description to the shelter. She was syringed fed for several weeks and cared for by the hospital staff. After three weeks at the animal hospital, CCLAS placed Violet with a foster home to recover and finish her eye treatment.

Violet will be up for adoption in mid-January, to learn more about her, email To make a donation toward her medical care, stop by the Lakewood Animal Hospital or visit
