Kittens. Their life is all about play. They run, jump, bite, pounce and generally love having a good time. However, all this playful behavior can sometimes also put them at risk for harm.
Meet Vader, a 3-month-old kitten who recently found himself in a painful situation. Vader’s mom left for a quick trip to the store—before she left, Vader was his happy, playful self. But when she came home, that wasn’t the case. He was limping on his back leg and would cry out in pain when she touched it. His cries made his mom realize that he needed to see a vet, so she rushed Vader to Red Hills Veterinary Hospital.
She isn't sure what kind of mischief he got himself into in the short time she was gone, but when she brought him to the vet they found his back leg was severely broken. The best option for Vader was amputation. She reached out to Fur Kids Foundation for help, and we were there to provide some help with Vader’s bills.
We’ve been told that you’d never know Vader was missing a leg. His mom reported that by the next day, he was running around like he's always had three legs and it didn't seem to bother him one bit.
Kittens. Mischievous bundles of playful energy.
