I know that probably sounds like a silly question but......... My very best friend runs a Vet Clinic, it is a small community of about 15,000. Because of lack of funding they have also made themselves the countys animal shelter, their hearts are HUGE! And praise the Lord they are no kill. Added advantage is that these small animals get fantastic care being a Vet Clinic. Okay back to my subject(me, of many words
) I adopted Kizie and Journey from them.
They have a 6 week old kitten coming in next week, she will be removed from her farm family siblings because of a birth defect a stub back leg. The family is afraid she will be unable to defend herself against preditors (I'm soooo glad they came to that
She was born in a barn (I know it's difficult to understand the outdoor cats but this is Southern Iowa and for most, sadly so, cats are for mice control not for pets
. Of course, my opinion is different and of course I don't speak for everyone but in the country sometimes their purpose is so sadly menial.
Her stub limb is a nuisance to her and she hasn't quite adapted to it so, she drags it, it becomes raw and then infected. So they have already started her on antibiotics and when the infection is cleared and she is good and strong the plan is to amputate the infected stub by the hip. I was told that cats do fine on three legs, I had a cat that I had to amputate his tail but I was wondering if anyone else heard or had a three legged baby? I already have her named
Pray the surgery goes well. I know Maleke is going to have a two legged sweet kitty but I was curious as to three.
