My friend Sarah told me about a little 6 week old kitten that darted into the road and under their car last weekend. It jumped up into the engine, and they had to pull off the road and get a small boy to crawl underneath and get it. When they were examining it to see if it was physically hurt, they noticed that where its thumbs were on its front paws, it had two more paws growing out. They took it to the emergency clinic, and they asked if they wanted to adopt it. They can't, so they said no, and the clinic asked if they wanted to euthanize it, and they said no. The receptionist told them that the humane society was open, but this kitten needed medical care. Then the receptionist saw the paws and said, oh, we get those here sometimes. My friend said she is pretty sure they were going to put it down. Is this extra paw thing something that causes fatal health problems, or is this clinic just horrible for not treating an animal that was homeless?
