Here is a picture of our newest member of the house. Twelve weeks old, just out of major surgery because some scum tossed her out a window of a car going about fifty and smashed her hip.
Luckily Kip Ward who owns the hotel where we do the workshops has spent the summer and fall doing fundraisers for the local vet to take care of stray animals. The vet can do what they want with the money. The Humane Society wanted to put her down because she was so badly injured but the vet and the staff there would have nothing to do with that.
In walked Kris for our normal monthly supply of cat food and the next day, after surgery, we left with Molly, one of the cutest and most energetic cats we have ever had. Molly would not be alive if not for the kindness of all the people who helped Kip raise money for the local fund for stray animals and the dedicated people at the clinic.
Three days later, even though Molly is missing one hip socket, she’s running around this big house like a twelve week old kitten, learning to use her leg that really isn’t attached by anything but muscle. And she is the sweetest cat we have ever rescued. Molly got lucky, we got lucky. Thanks Kip and all the people who donated to the fund, and thanks to the driven vets at the clinic who just wouldn’t let go of a beautiful kitten. Kris has more pictures on her Facebook page.
And folks, if your local vet has a fund for helping out stray cats and dogs, toss in some money next time you are at the vet. Most vets have a fund like that and you would be surprised at how many animals it helps.
