New addition

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I am officially the new meowmy to a new tale of survival.

My friend Dianne recently rescued a kitten that had been abandoned and found running in and out of traffic on a local bridge. The kitten which I have yet to name is a lovely Calico with a black splotch on her nose and striped legs.

She is also a survivor of a flesh eating infection that began on her tail. A week after bringing her home Dianne found the kitten to be looseing fur on it's tale she took it to the vet who put her on meds for ringworm. The meds didn't work, they think it wasn't ringworm now and her tail became necrotic and started to die.

Last week Dianne and I pooled our money and had her tail surgically amputated. She is doing fine with a bobed tail and the fur is starteing to grow back on her shaved rear end. She will have the elizabethan collar on for another week but she is doing well and there is no sighn of infeftion in any of the other tisue.

Dianne is keeping her at her house with her outher cats until she is all better and I can afford to take care of her. I am currently unemployed so Dianne said she would keep her in 'storage' for me until I get a job. She is such a little angel. I will post pictures if I can.
