Twinkle broke the "heel" of her back right leg two weeks ago. We're glad to report that she's doing well, though having to be confined to a big cage is not a lot of fun for her. We make sure she gets plenty of snuggle time every day and her cage is in the sunny living room where she can have visits with our cats.
Twinkle even got a get well card and special toy for her cage which she loves! Thank you to Lisa for that sweet gift.
We'd also like to thank EVERYONE who jumped at the chance to help Twinkle with a donation for her surgery. We raised every dime we needed in less than 12 hours, which made it possible for Twinkle to get her surgery less than 24 hours after the accident (part of the wait was due to having to schedule her to see an orthopedic surgeon).
In a few days Twinkle will have her third bandage change, then probably another week in her cast before we know how she'll do going forward. She may need another surgery or she may be able to finally get her cast off. Even with all that happened to her, Twinkle remains a cheerful and affectionate kitten.
3-month old foster kitten Twinkle-Twinkle somehow broke her leg this evening. We rushed her to Newtown Veterinary Services where they determined she will need surgery TOMORROW 8/26.
We are in DIRE need of funds to cover the costs for her care. We've set up a special fundraiser for her on PetCaring. You can visit THIS LINK for details OR you can simply press the DONATE TODAY button on the right. We are trying to raise at least $3000.00 and possibly more once we have details on what she needs.
You can also mail a check to Kitten Associates, P.O. Box 354, Newtown, CT 06470-0354 or call Newtown Veterinary Services at 203-270-8387 to make a donation directly.
Piglet didn't have very good odds in reaching his first milestone of opening his eyes, but as you can see in the photo, our little guy isn't so little any more (and he DID open his eyes we promise!). Piglet not only has a mom, but his grandma-Laney also gave birth to SIX very BIG, healthy kittens and Piglet is part of their family now, too.
Having double-mamas made all the difference for this precious kitten. Piglet gained an ounce in a day after Laney gave birth and has been gaining every day since. We couldn't be more pleased that Piglet is doing well and his new "aunts and uncles" will give him the companionship he needs to thrive.
