Dr. Lisa has taken the splint off my right leg! It has been two months since I was found and I can flex my right front paw, catch toy balls and grab feathers! Mom has put a harness and leash on me so I can't get too playful too fast and jump out of my nest while playing with my new toy mouse. In one week I will have xrays of my left leg and hopefully they will take that splint off too!

Well, I already told my guardian angel, Luna, but I had a hard day yesterday. My leg was hurting and I did not know how to tell my family, so I was getting very cranky. I was fussy and scratching and biting at my family. And since I am usually very very sweet, they knew something was not right. My family kitty mama, Lucy, knew something was wrong, too. She kept coming around my crate and crying. We went to see Dr. Lisa last night and she took off my splint. My skin was very sore again and it was too good to be able to lick and lick. But I guess I was still pretty upset and when we got home, my mom was taking me out of my carrier and I scratched her face (guess my right leg is starting to work prety good). I was sorry and she wasn't angry with me. I got to go to bed early in my crate where I slept and slept.

My vet, Ms. Lisa, heard from the specialist in Louisville. I have to keep a splint on my left leg for 4 more weeks - but they think both my legs are going to be okay! Thank everyone for the many puuurrrrrrs and prayers and thoughts. I got to have my splints off for a little while and wave my legs around. Felt soooo gooooood!

Just want to say what a fantastic group this is! Everyone is so encouraging. I cannot begin to say thank you enough! Miranda has so many beautiful new friends (hope I haven't missed anyone!) Roo is a special inspiration. We don't know if Miranda will lose one or both of her legs, but Roo's story is enough for me to know that Miranda will get through this and go on to have a beautiful life no matter what happens! No new updates from the vet. Being patient is hard to do!

On January 1, 2011, a person driving out to my family's farm found me along the road. I was trying to run as fast as I could, but both my front legs were broken. I guess it must have been clear to the driver something was wrong. She stopped - even though she had a mule in her horsetrailer - and picked me up. There was a vet at the barn who used some tongue depressers and vet wrap. It felt so good that I started purring and everyone at the barn fell in love with me. They gave me food and water and put me in the heated bath room for the night.
