Bandit the Brave

Today my sweet Bandit did a very brave deed. He saved a kitten’s life.


This tiny kitten “Byrd” was in desperate need of a blood transfusion. She was extremely anemic, malnourished and dehydrated. Byrd was so weak that she could barely hold up her own head. The vet said that if she didn’t have a blood transfusion fast she probably wouldn’t make it. 

After testing our hospital cat Odie and our adoption cat Klaus, and discovering that they both had Type B blood, they came to me. Byrd needed Type A, and we were out of options. They asked if I would consider testing Bandit for a blood match. I went home to pick up Bandit, and blood type testing and cross matching showed he was a perfect donor. Bandit was the hero of the day. The blood transfusion went very well and now Byrd has a chance at life. 

I’m so proud of Bandit for doing such a good deed. Now he is relaxing after an extra special Hero’s dinner. 



Let’s hear it for Bandit the Brave!
