Abandoned Kitten Found Barely Able To Walk With Makeshift Casts
50 years ago
A group of children found a kitten in front of their apartment complex in Phoenix, Arizona. They quickly took her home and asked their parents to rescue her. The hind legs of this little cat, apparently broken in a previous incident, had been wrapped in raw casts. The parents contacted Kathy Hamel, director of Arizona Small Breed Rescue. “When she was brought to me, there was a little girl, perhaps four years old, who was one of her founders. She had named it Cupcake, I told her that I liked that name and that she would keep it. “Kathy said.
Kathy took Cupcake to the vet to see if they could find out what had happened to her. After being examined, everyone was shocked to discover that his legs were not broken at all, that they worked perfectly and that it meant that the casts were cruelly done intentionally. Despite her legs, Cupcake was underweight, dehydrated and malnourished. Fortunately for Cupcake, she stays at the rescue center while regaining strength in her legs. Because of the limitations of the throws, she must rehabilitate her body to be able to get back on all fours. The wonderful news, however, is that she already has a family waiting to adopt her. Why anyone would be so cruel to do this against Cupcake is beyond me, but luckily everything worked out in the end.
