NEW LONDON, CT (WFSB) -

A kitten was injured by children in New London, according to animal control officer.

Animal control said 4-month-old Chloe “suffered a serious break of her left humerus” after being abused by some children in an undisclosed New London neighborhood.

Animal control officers said there are four options for Chloe, which are euthanization, splinting the injury, amputating the leg or surgically repairing it at an orthopedic vet.

“Our first option is to euthanize her, not something I really want to do to a friendly and sweet 4 month old girl,” the animal control Facebook page states.

However, splinting Chloe’s injury is costly, but not as much as amputation or the surgery.

“This is obviously our most expensive option, and will have the longest recuperation as well. Plainly speaking, our medical budget will not cover the cost of ANY of the options other than the first,” the animal control Facebook page states.

So, animal control is hoping for donations to help pay for Chloe’s care. Though VCA-New London Animal Hospital in Waterford is willing to give animal control a discount, the services could cost as much as $1,000.
