Newt is a VERY lucky boy! He was caught in a HUGE apartment complex that we are trying to TNR. Upon getting him home his foster mom noticed a large, hard, lump on his chest. Of course the next morning he was off to the vet. After thousands of cats this is the first time we have experienced this however most would not survive if not caught quickly. Little Newt had a bot fly lay an egg in his chest and the maggot was growing inside him. Once mature they break out through their skin! Thankfully we got him before it was too late! We had the maggot removed and Newt is recovering well. He is looking for a new INDOOR home as his days of monsters in his chest are over as far as he is concerned! He is named for the little kid in the Alien movie!
