I have a problem....

I brought home a kitten today...

In my defense; she would not have lasted if left alone, or even brought into another clinic. This kitten has 4 deformed limbs! She is 3 weeks old, and VERY sweet! She eats very well, has fleas, and Hudson even likes her! He was licking her! 

Hudson being sweet!

So far, the plan is for a surgical consultation at the specialist to see what, if anything, can be done. Tomorrow we will call over and hopefully set something up.

I really don't need any more stress, emotionally, physically or financially. However, this kitten made it to 3 weeks of age...who am I to say she cannot live any longer?! Who am I to take away her chance at life, at love?! I would rather take her in, show her love and end up having to euthanize later because I tried and cannot help her. The alternative is not even having a chance to grow, to experience love, to have a fighting chance. I feel everybody- human, canine, feline, equine, reptilian, avian etc. EVERYBODY deserves a chance to live! If in the end, I have to make the hard decision humanly euthanize...at least I can say I tried.

Hudson has been incredibly loving to the kitten...and then he realized what I was doing, I was making his most favorite thing ever...KITTEN FORMULA aka, Hudson Crack! Next thing I know, he was standing on the peanut butter jar (I was snacking, it isn't part of the recipe) that way he could stretch down into the blender (it was off) and lap up the unmixed formula!


You can see her callouses from the abnormal pressure

her feet look upside down

my favorite picture so far!
