A kitten found in a nursery is thankful for help and keen to recover
Carmen Weinberg, the founder of the Animal Friends Project, was asked about assisting a small cat in a large commercial plant nursery in Loxahatchee, Florida (United States). An employee spotted a calico with one of her legs injured while relocating some pots.
He quickly took the cat to his employees in the hopes of getting her medical attention. Everyone worked and kept in touch with the rescue center. Carmen was around 40 minutes away, but because no one else was available, she went to the kitten’s location.
“Elsa (a coworker) texted me in a panic and asked if I could go fetch the kitty,” Carmen explained. I could hear her sobbing in the background.” As soon as Elsa noticed Carmen, she rushed up to her with the cat in her arms. The feline’s right front limb was severely injured and flea-infested. She was taken to a veterinary clinic by the woman. The little calico’s patica fingers were broken and required to be amputated. Toes was given that name by the veterinarian who treated her. “I sat with the kitty on my lap,” Carmen says. She was still pretty young. “Her eyes were wide open, yet her ears were slightly curved.”
“She asked if I would give her the bottle and transport her to the hospital every day to get her bandages changed,” Carmen recalls. I agreed with him. The hospital staff was usually pleased to see her. Toes was happy to have someone care after her, she purred nonstop and visited the hospital to have her paw cleansed and her bandage replaced.
A couple of weeks later, the lovely calico was rescued. She turned into a beautiful purr machine and a great explorer, being active and eager to play with anything she could find. “Even though her toes can’t support the paw, she uses her leg to grab objects, especially when she’s playing,” Carmen explains. She’s a great cat. She starts purring when she meets humans.
Vets will check the Cough’s paw as soon as she becomes large enough to ensure the feline’s quality of life. For the time being, she enjoys interacting with other kittens and hopes to befriend them all. Carmen brought home some stray kittens, one of which was a mini version of Toes. When the kitten came from his nest one day, Toes took advantage of the opportunity and ran to welcome him.
After a tough start, Toes healed from her injuries and now only a bright future for her.
