    -Stephanie B.
  • "Dr Pugliese took care of Prince-the cat thrown from the 13th floor of the Arlington Houses. She amputated his front leg because the fractures he sustained were beyond anything that could be done to save the leg. She would have saved his leg if possible. Prince received wonderful care. He again began to experience true kindness. Forever grateful. He is on the road to recovery!"
