Meet our new pretty little amputee kitty. We found out about her last weekend and we trapped on Sunday and then Marie and team trapped Monday and Tuesday until this little princess was trapped. Her back leg was badly deformed and her foot...was turned almost 180 degrees and was pointing in the wrong direction. She went to the vet and had her back leg amputated on Thursday. She is not feral and is very sweet. Dr. Jon said the leg was a congenital birth defect.
Nothing pitiful about this girl -- look how happy she is now that she's had surgery and doesn't have all that "dead weight" to carry around. We hope that she was not in pain all 14 weeks of her life, but if she was, she's not now. And she's safe now.
