My Mom recently got back my nephew Jimmy, who will be a year old Christmas Day. She placed him with a local family with a little girl, but she was SO allergic to him that her whole face swelled up, so sadly, Jimmy is back home. He's a blue-silver tabby & white, same color as me, but he's bigger because he's a boy. Mom's looking for a new pet home for him. She's also looking for a pet home for my son Spot, who's amber eyed white, after the trauma he's been through. The temporary vet messed up BADLY when Mom took him in after he fell in the sink with his cast on. She caught him as he fell, so only the tip got wet, but instead of taking the cast off, drying Spot's foot & re-casting it, he simply applied a ribber glove over the cast, wrapped it in vet wrap, & told her to take Spot home & bring him back to our regular vet in another 2 weeks. She did what she was told. Spot went back in 2 weeks later, the x ray showed the bones he broke healed up perfectly, but when they went to take the cast off, Spot started screaming in pain & terror. Mom started to cry, because Spot is normally a quiet kid. Poor baby, because of that vet's screw up, his paw ROTTED inside the cast, & the raging infection in his leg could have, probably should have, killed him! Mom was left with the choice of euthanizing Spot or amputating the leg. There was no choice in Mom's mind, she refused to have Spot put down, she couldn't kill my son, & I'm SO glad she chose to have the surgery done! He's just as happy as ever now, even though he only has 3 legs. He doesn't let it stop him! He still runs, jumps, climbs, & is a normal, healthy, happy, huggable TA kitten. He is 8 months old. Mom is hoping that a family will come along for him that will appreciate him even with one less leg.
