This beautiful calico's care-free life was prematurely terminated when a vehicle ran over her.
Her spine broke into two.
She lost the use of the lower half of her body.
She has to drag herself and she is unable to clear her urine and faeces.
Left alone, she would die a slow painful death.
Phyllis decides to take care of her, against all odds.
Three vets consulted have advised that this cat, now called Debbie, be "put to sleep"
as a lot of effort is required to take care of her.
Her bladder needs to be manually pressed at least twice a day.
Her bowel has to be checked to make sure that the faeces are cleared.
Her lower limbs have to be massaged to prevent contractures.
Her skin has to be constantly checked for bed sores.
She will require visits to the vet as complications arise.
She will need a set of wheels to support her lower limbs to let her regain her independence in moving around.
Does anyone know the cost of customizing a set of wheels for Debbie and any good references?
