To adopt, or not to adopt?
Hubby and I are considering adopting a kitten who has just lost one of her rear legs. She's 8 weeks old right now, and had the surgery today. She will go back to the shelter in a day or two, and then we'll get to meet her.
The potential problem? The litterbox. We HAVE to have a top-entry box because of Fergie insisting on peeing standing up. I'm not worried about the immediate time frame, since we could keep the kitten in her own room for a while, but soon enough all the girls would be together so we have to have litterboxes that will work for all. I know that cats who lose a rear leg are still able to jump, just not as high, so I'm thinking this should work? The box is about 14 inches high.
