Little Kitten with Birth Defects Taken in by Animalkind - 19 Oct 2009

Little Olivia came to Animalkind emaciated and sick. She was born with two deformed legs and could not make it to any food sources. We immediately provided medical attention and LOTS of love for her. She is now in a foster home waiting to grow and for her legs to be straightened.

Working with our vet, we created a means of straightening her little legs and also a buffer zone for her chest. This is the first time this baby actually sat up!

That night she managed 12 inches (!) of steps, while "walking" upright. It is the first stage in recovery - but Olivia is a fighter and eventually will make someone the purrfect loving pet.


Now, Olivia is in a foster home, and by way of her foster mom, sent the following message to Animalkind:

Dear Aunt Katrin,

As Executive Director of Animalkind, I think you should know that Aunt Denise has put me in a sweater and stuffed the front of it with gauze pads.

The good part is that it is easier to keep my head up and and I am not always breathing into a pillow. Also I am slightly more mobile but, so far, I have only found reverse gear.

The problem is that I think I am too young to be stuffing my sweaters and trying to have a bust line. My brother, Ashton, is outraged and says he doesn't want to be bothered with a bunch of boy kitties following me around.

Thank you.
Love, Little Olivia
