Mateus

Mateus was abandoned at early morning near the Bianca shelter, Wednesday the 20th of August. When we found him we noticed that his penis was strangely out. We took him to the vet. To our dismay, it was not just a penis out. Some BEAST had made a hole in his skin where the testicles are and made the penis go through there. Then someone had actually SOWN the place where the penis should go normally.!!!!!
Were they playing with a poor indefensive animal or was it someone completely crazy - it was obviously someone who should not be in the world of living! A person who would do it to a defenceless animal, would do it to a defenseless human, no doubt.
Unexplainable, unacceptable and utterly cruel.
Poor Mateus also had leishmaniasis.

Mateus, after the surgery to reconstruct his sexual organs was recovering quite well. He was diagnosed with tick fever and leishmaniasis and we started to treat those sicknesses as soon as the vet told us we could do it.

His liver and kidneys were stable and they showed acceptable values. However, at the beginning of the treatment, the kidneys started to work badly and we had to stop the treatment. The values of the liver started to go up and continued even when we stopped the treatment. The veterinary tried to help him to stabilise those values but it was not possible. He was getting worse and worse.

Today, at 12.27, he left us ..... He left us broken-hearted and with a feeling of helpnessness that we did not manage to give him a long and happy life. We gave him lots of love and care the two months he was with us and we had support of many people. Nevertheless, that was not his destiny.... We will never forget him. He must have known that we loved him......

Mateus
