Cat gets eyelids thanks to surgery at UC Davis


Born without eyelids, 9-month-old cat Billie underwent surgery at UC Davis two months ago. Today, she is healed and can safely see.

Billie suffered from eyelid agenesis – she couldn't close her eyes completely and hair in the area constantly irritated and inflamed her eyes.

At UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, ophthalmologists had to conduct transplant surgery in order to give Billie eyelids. Vets removed tissue from the cat's cheek and lips and transplanted it as eyelids.

When Billie came back for her one-week checkup, both grafts appeared to be healing well. After two weeks, Billie's stitches were removed and the swelling had gone down. At her two-month appointment, Billie was able to blink both eyes. Hair that was clipped before the surgery had grown back and away from her eyes.

Thousands get access to food thanks to Yolo County Food Bank


About 47,000 people depend on the Yolo County Food Bank for food each month. The nonprofit is part of the Big Day of Giving (Big DoG) event Tuesday and wants to raise money to tackle hunger issues in Yolo County.

"Hunger in rural areas is typically higher than the national average. Unfortunately, Yolo County is no exception," the Yolo County Food Bank states on its website.

Yolo County is part of a prominent agricultural region, but thousands of people – including children – are food insecure. The food bank organizes several programs like the Kids Farmers Market Program and the Emergency Food Assistance Program (EFAP) to help alleviate hunger in the community.
