Being brave through a stick-y situation

This little cat is an absolute trooper!

We all know how irritating it is when we get an eyelash stuck in our eye, so imagine something bigger, sharper and more dangerous. This brave kitty presented to our hospital with nothing more than a persistently watery eye. After two weeks of treatment our team noticed no improvement, and decided to sedate him to have his eye examined further. Our investigation found something very unexpected - a 4cm long thorn stuck in his eye! Miraculously there seemed to be no permanent damage done, and after carefully removing the thorn we expect he'll make a full recovery.

It will remain a mystery as to how a thorn that large could end up in his eye, but we're sure he'll be feeling a lot better now that it's out. What a brave boy!
