You may remember we reported on a kitten that had been abandoned in our article "Cruel Beyond Words", well, here is an update on the kitten we named "Precious". Precious went to her new home at the end of
July and settled in immediately. Her new owner changed her name to Grace and she
is as playful and energetic as a young kitten should be. She is doing remarkably
well so far, although she did pull a muscle in her leg by climbing the curtains
and jumping onto the bed! She had another x-ray and all was well with the pins
in her leg, so that was a huge relief. Considering the terrible ordeal she has
gone through, she has very good movement in her injured leg at the moment, so we
hope that this will continue as she grows to adulthood. Precious sustained a
fracture to the growth plate of her leg and her operation was groundbreaking, so
the full extent of her future treatment is uncertain at the moment, but we do
have every hope that her leg will remain fully functioning and that she will be
able to lead a normal life.
Very surprisingly, Precious has no fear of
dogs and now lives with one whom she absolutely adores, as well as 2 other cats.
Her owner has said that he will pay for any future treatment that Precious may
need and we can't ask for more than that.
We are so relieved that it all
came right for this brave little girl in the end and that she is receiving the
love and care that she so richly deserves.
