Arrival Story:
Speedy was dumped at my house. My vet thinks that she was most likely thrown from a passing car, and they may have used her tail to swing her by as they threw her. When she first showed up here as a kitten, her tail was limp and dragging behind her. She also had a hump on her spine directly between her hips, near the base of her spine. This may have been caused by the bones of her spine separating as she was swung by her tail. My vet wanted to amputate her tail, but I wanted to give it time to see if she'd heal some first. So I did a daily massage on her tail and lower spine, hoping to aid in healing. Eventually her spine did heal and she regained most of the use of her tail. The only symptoms she still shows today is that her tail can't stand up straight, the tip of it and about 2 or 3 inches will fall over towards the left, but the rest will stand straight.

Speedy is a wonderful friend. She loves to be held and cuddled, and will often sit on my computer desk at my shoulder to give me head butts. She'll sometimes sit there long enough to go to sleep, using me as her pillow.
