Kitten with severe injuries rescued from Denver streets

Melvin had to have an eye removed, but is now healing and ready for adoption.

DENVER — A homeless kitten with severe injuries who was rescued off the streets of Denver is now in much better health and looking for a new home.

A few weeks ago, Metro Denver CAT, along with Denver Animal Protection, captured Melvin in a trap. He was rushed to Denver Animal Shelter for immediate medical attention.

The vet team had to remove one of his eyes because it had ruptured, as well as treat two puncture wounds and a facial abscess, according to the shelter.
