Kitty update…..

As I mentioned before, we found a kitty. We named her shades because she has so many shades of different colors in her fur.

Here’s a little back ground. She was living under the shed at the gas station my sister works at for the last 3 weeks. Multiple people have tried to catch her and the employees would feed her as much as they could.

So my sisters boyfriend caught her and brought her to me. An that’s when we first thought she was strange.

She never tried to run and hide from us like cats do in new places. She never feared mechanic man, me or the boys. She never tried to run from the dogs. She would just growl at them and hiss occasionally.

She didn’t walk around much for the first few days but when she did, she walked crooked. And then we noticed other stuff, like her right rear foot slid around on the bathroom floor and she never sat with her legs underneath her, she always slept on her side.

So we took her to the vet. Best vet in the world I think. He always gives a discount for saving a stray. Not that he over charges to begin with. And he is a veterinary chiropractor. She had a partially dislocated hip, 3 jacked up vertebrae and her neck was out of alignment. She walks straight again, her leg is weak because it had been that way for a while. He said that she would have either fallen as prey for another animal or starved without us.

Everything happens for a reason. We are blessed to have shades as our newest family member.

Are you an animal lover too?
