“We had no idea if he would survive the surgery to remove his eye,” Kristin Smith, a vet tech from the clinic, told The Dodo. “Luckily, he pulled through and everything went better than expected.”
Thor, who is only 8 weeks old, was rescued just in time. At his age, it’s likely he wouldn’t have survived another night alone inside the bag, Smith said.
In recovery, Smith got to spend some time with Thor and he instantly captured her heart. Smith decided to bring him home with her so he could have a comfortable place to heal and to help out the local shelter, Bayou Animal Services, which offered to pay for his care.
