My new Foster baby.

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Baby fo sho.

He's 8 days old, my guesstimation. Vet agreed.

Here's the deal with him..

Some kids by a local high school heard some cries by a dumpster by the school and found him on the ground behind it. So they skipped class and brought him to the shelter.

It appeared as though his foot was deformed, so said the owner.. but I knew when I saw it that mama has probably accidentally chewed his foot off when he chewed the sac off. And the a bit of his tail.
The vet confirmed that it's likely what happened, and we decided to give him a chance. He's on an ointment for his leg, his tail has already healed on it's own.

He has a pretty big appetite for a little guy.

Anyway.






That's Nixie.

His poor little leg I hope it heals well and doesn't give him any future problems.

Once he's bigger, it'll be up to the vet if he thinks that taking the leg off would benefit him more than having the leg without the foot. I imagine taking the leg would eliminate any problems. But we'll see in a couple months.

In 5 years of volunteering I've never seen it happen before.. but I've heard of it happening by reading about it or seeing it on TV.. can't remember. I'm sure it doesn't happen too often.



Thank you everyone. ;

Sometimes it happens... I've seen it elsewhere, I've never had a tripod kitty myself (although Skippy's Trace is, I believe... one of his is). I know with dogs (and probably cats) that if there is a limb there, they will try to use it... so removing the rest of the leg, when the foot is no longer there, is best. If you left the leg on there, many times they will try to use it and will get sores and other issues on the stump... it's better all around in most cases (probably all, but I don't want to generalize that much). it keeps them from further injuring the leg. They adjust well to three legs...

Can't wait for more pics!
