veterinary care. While the traumatic injury appeared
to be several days old, the wound was still bleeding.
It is hard to determine how long Love might have
survived on her own, however with the severity of
the injury it is clear she was struggling. Upon further
examination, it was discovered that Love’s tail was
also broken. After her leg was stabilized, Love was
admitted to Tree House. It is unclear what caused
her injuries, but we believe that her leg might have been caught in a
trap of some type. It is heartbreaking to image the pain and fear this
gentle animal suffered. And yet, this incredibly resilient cat continued
on and had been hobbling for several days, and possibly longer, on the
exposed bone in her leg.
More exams revealed further health issues. Love was anemic and had a
mild heart murmur. Additionally, she had scratches on her face and nose
and suffered from a highly contagious form of skin mites causing her
to remain in isolation. Given the amount of trauma to her tiny body, and
her weakened state, it would have been increasingly risky for her to be
anesthetized for surgery. It was determined that Love’s surgery should
wait. It was a difficult time as she adamantly fought the bandages on her
leg, tearing them off several times. She would then cry out in pain when
our clinic staff attempted to rebandage her leg.
Even with all her challenges, Love’s sweet and gentle nature remained.
She welcomed visitors and would snuggle and roll over for belly rubs
when the clinic staff came to check on her. Finally, Love had her surgery
in early November of this year. Due to the severity of the injury and the
condition of her leg, it was determined it would be best to amputate her
leg at the shoulder to give her the best opportunity to fully recover and
