Wally, a 3-month-old kitten, was discovered in a garden with severe injuries to his leg and tail as a result of living on the streets. However, luck was on his side as he was rescued by compassionate individuals who showed him kindness.
Several weeks ago, a citizen of a Los Angeles neighborhood stumbled upon a kitten in dire condition on her lawn. The poor feline was limping and had collapsed from exhaustion, with a mutilated leg and tail. Fearing for its safety, the woman contacted an animal shelter. Baby Kitten Rescue (BKR) came to the rescue, with volunteer Caroline expressing her immediate desire to take the kitten in upon seeing its sweet face and injuries. The right front paw and tail of the kitten, subsequently named Wally, were seriously damaged, likely due to a car accident. Despite Wally’s best attempts to drag his paw, BKR volunteers eventually put an end to his suffering.
Caroline discovered that her kitten’s tail could still be saved during a visit to the vet, but unfortunately, its leg needed to be amputated. This procedure was quite expensive, but necessary as Wally had begun to harm itself. One of the volunteers explained that it was confusing and frustrating for the kitten to have a leg dragging around without any sensation or control. Despite these challenges, Wally remained loving towards its rescuers and craved affection. Caroline happily obliged by giving him hugs and kisses. Fortunately, the surgery was successful, and the vets even took the chance to sterilize the kitten. They quickly fell in love with Wally’s sweet personality. After a few days of adjustment, the feline adapted well to its new body and was on the road to recovery.
Caroline is delighted to report that Wally has adjusted seamlessly to life with only three legs. Despite undergoing surgery just two weeks ago, he can already walk, run, and play with ease. In fact, he healed so quickly that he was ready for adoption sooner than expected. Fortunately, a family from Las Vegas, who already have experience with three-legged animals, stepped up to give Wally a forever home. Rally, as he is now called, will have two feline sisters to keep him company, including one who also has three legs. Caroline believes that this family is the perfect fit for Rally, as they understand his unique needs and are committed to giving him all the love, care, and patience he needs to thrive. Rally’s followers on Instagram are thrilled to see him living his best life, and it’s clear that this brave little cat’s adventure is just getting started.
