Pumpkin Spice – Found on the Street with a Severe Broken Leg

11/27/18 – Pumpkin Spice is one of the many examples of how your donations give the abandoned the second chance at life. Here is her story:

“This past Thursday a kitten was found outside near Brownstown, MI and the girl who found + brought her in couldn’t keep her so I volunteered to foster and find her a home! Pumpkin Spice is a SWEET 6ish month old Calico kitten who loves to snuggle, purrs almost constantly, and will sit in my lap for hours at a time. Tuesday I took her to Dearborn Family Pet Physicians (in Dearborn) for a check up, blood work, and age appropriate shots. I remembered that I’d noticed a small, almost undetectable limp in her left hind leg, so as an afterthought I called the vet back in to take a peek. We got X-rays and found out that Pumpkin has a fractured femur neck. The head of her femur is in place, but it’s broken and jagged along the neck. The vet said it’s an old injury, possibly from a car accident or other trauma, that is unable to heal but will most definitely require surgery sooner rather than later. We can even see in the X-ray the loss of muscle mass in her injured leg. She referred me to a surgeon for a femoral head ostectomy (although they wouldn’t have to cut the bone since it’s already completely separated – so not sure if the procedure has a different name at that point). Despite all this she’s still just as playful and sweet as can be. She tested neg for feline leukemia/aids and is otherwise healthy! Can you help? -Wynston”

Although we have had so many serious cases, how could we refuse. Pumpkin Spice has now been seen by one of our favorite veterinarians, Dr. Zalac, and she will have surgery (including spay) this Friday, November 30. Please say a little prayer for this sweetie. And, please donate whatever you can afford. We couldn’t do it without you! Pumpkin Spice will be looking for her forever home once she recovers. contact Wynston at: wynston.mccreary@gmail.com — diana
