A Paralyzed Kitten Comes to Animalkind - 12 Jul 2009

Anastasia's second chance for life.

Anastasia was found paralyzed from the waist down. The little kitten was pulling herself across the floor with her little front legs. X-rays showed nothing was broken, but severe nerve damage had occurred due to some unknown kind of trauma to her tiny body.

She is a dear love bug and purrs when we talk to her or even just walk into the room.

Anastasia was saved by Animalkind and is being given a second chance.

Here she sits like a little person (she is...)

Due her nerve damage (hopefully temporary), she can not control her bladder or bowel movements. Below, she is wearing tiny diapers that are changed every 2 hrs. Diapering also helps with her tummy, protecting it from rubbing and chafing on the floor.


Our little angel (can't you see the wings??) is happy to be saved and in the company of her friends!

After dinner..it's playtime!

UPDATE - 19 Jul 2009

UPDATE - 05 Sep 2009

Anastasia just couldn't make it...

Anastasia passed peacefully over the Rainbow Bridge in the caring arms of an Animalkind worker at 3:30 PM today.  She had given her best, but her internal organs just couldn't handle the stress.  Her friends at Animalkind were deeply affected by this little creature. During her short life, she was given all the love and care possible, and she will be greatly missed.
