This sweet little kitty was brought to us from a local middle school after being found with one of her back paws strangulated by a string or long carpet fiber. The paw was extremely swollen and misshapen; it seemed almost a sure thing that Tweed would require amputation. Our wonderful volunteers immediately started following the prescribed medical plan: Tweed’s swollen foot received hours and hours of hydrotherapy and massage, along with oral antibiotics. Little by little the size of her paw reduced...then a little bit of fur started growing on the bare skin...and the wound from the carpet fiber healed. Thanks to this outstanding care, Tweed will not require amputation of her injured foot! This adorable tuxedo is very sweet and social. She loves to play with other kittens and, they way this girl runs, you would never know she has been through such an ordeal. Tweed will make a great companion and an exceptional addition to any family.
