When Omar came to the shelter in February 2019, he was the definition of a “hot mess.” A concerned citizen brought him in after finding him laying on the side of the road with his mouth hanging open and covered in blood. X-rays determined that he had a broken jaw and palette and had most likely been hit by a car. Surgery was performed to repair his injuries, and he was syringe fed while his mouth was wired shut. He spent a lot of time isolated as he recovered from his injuries, but even while in pain, he was always super social and interactive. Once healed he spent some time as a free roamer in the cat room. In April, 2019, Omar went to his forever family.
