A week ago, this beautiful little kitty was found in the middle of the road, trying to limp across.
We don’t have a name for this kitty yet, but she’s a tough little furball. At the moment, we’re not sure what’s causing her limp. It could be a broken bone in her leg, or an injury to her pelvis. However, the little kitty can still feel sensations on her paws and can still manage to drag herself to where she wants to go. Seeing her struggle to do so breaks our hearts.
Thankfully, kitties are tough! This kitty is still active and meows so vigorously. She’s not afraid to turn her back on you when she’s had enough of your attention!
“Kittens tend to bounce back faster,” said Maritza, our Cat Care Supervisor, “but she’d recover faster in a foster home.”
Despite how much we love the animals in our care and provide for them to the best of our abilities, there is no replacement for an open and loving home. Our fostering program is in need of foster homes who not only temporarily take care of baby kittens, but also injured or ill kittens. With so many animals in our shelter and with kitten season upon us, it can be difficult for our staff to devote the needed time these fragile little ones unconditionally deserve.
Foster parents are able to provide the attention and care that this recovering kitty, and other newborn kittens, desperately need. If you would like to learn more about fostering, please visit HERE.
At Valley Animal Center, we know just how impactful your decision and actions are! We understand fostering can be intimidating, especially if you’ve never fostered before or have never had kittens, but we are here to help you all along the way.
If you decide you are not ready to foster, please consider donating or placing an order on our Amazon Foster Program Wishlist. Supplies donated/purchased are used for our kitties as well as given to current and future foster parents.
