A tiny feline lost one of her paws, but her rescue story is nothing short of heartwarming. The kind-hearted volunteers from Sparkle Cat Rescue in Burlington, North Carolina, namely Kristi and Eric, came across a Facebook post about a cat in dire need of help. Despite the setback of not finding the kitten in the location mentioned, they did not give up hope. Little did they know that the kitty had already been taken to a shelter before they arrived.
The kitten was in need of urgent medical attention, and due to her young age and critical condition, she required round-the-clock care from an expert breeder of newborn kittens. The accident had left the cat with a missing paw, but it did not dampen her spirit because she never stopped purring. In fact, she showed immense gratitude towards her saviors, which melted their hearts.
Brian, a compassionate volunteer at Burlington Animal Services, visited the shelter that evening to check on the whereabouts of a kitten he had been keeping an eye on. However, to his dismay, the kitten was nowhere to be found. Determined to uncover her location, he headed over to the Mebane Police Department to gather more information. It was then revealed to him that the kitten had been taken to the county shelter. Thankfully, two fellow volunteers, Rowan and Eric, made arrangements for safe transportation to De Ella foster home for the little feline the following day. Additionally, Sparkle Cat generously offered to rescue her the next morning as well.
The volunteers went through some trouble to get it, but it was definitely worth it. The little kitten, who would later be known as Uni, managed to purr despite all the challenges she faced in her early days. The volunteers wasted no time and took Uni to the vet immediately to have her injured paw checked by an expert. Unfortunately, her right foot had to be amputated, but this did not stop Uni from living a normal life. She’s a courageous fighter and is doing great despite her handicap.
According to reports, it was Uni’s mother who caused the damage to her daughter’s leg. It could be that she used excessive force while cleaning, leading to the mishap. Alternatively, Uni may have been confined just a few days after birth, and this may have contributed to her leg being lost.
However, Uni appears to have adapted well to the loss of her small limb. She has become skilled at utilizing her three remaining legs and even uses her tail to sit comfortably and maintain balance.
