Update on Rescue
It’s been nearly eighteen days since the cat, now named Rescue, was brought into the Kentucky Humane Society’s loving care. Upon first examination, Rescue’s cold and bloody limb appeared to be badly broken, and we feared amputation was his only option. After several days of watching him, however, we were shocked to see that despite everything, Rescue had not thrown in the towel. He began trying to use the damaged limb and was soon miraculously able to not only stand, but walk on the mangled leg. X-rays revealed that the leg, while suffering many torn ligaments and muscles, was not broken. Upon hearing these incredible results, we now have hope that Rescue may not only be able to keep his leg, but make a full recovery!
These days, the once endangered feline is making tremendous progress. Under our medical team’s watchful eyes, he continues growing stronger and braver every day. He has almost mastered walking without stumbling and even tries to jump up on and off of counters when no one is looking. Rescue is currently waiting for a foster home where we will monitor his progress and continue watching his leg heal. Despite his trauma, Rescue is a friendly, social cat who seems to want nothing more than love and attention from everyone he meets. His unbreakable spirit has inspired all of us here at the shelter, and we’re so happy to be able to give this sweet cat a second chance at life.
