Someone asked me not to forget about the cats, so I found this little guy. His story is on pet finder too, this is just a little portion.
Sammy, a 9-10 week old kitten, came to the rescue on 9/10/09 and went straight to the vet's office for treatment. He was taken in by a nice couple after they found him outside their home unable to use his back legs. They knew he would be euthanized at the local kill shelter so they contacted us to take him in. After being examined by the vet it was determined the only thing broken was one rib, but he did have a huge abscess on his back very close to his spinal cord. The vet suspects he was attacked and shook by a dog, which is what caused the abscess. The vet started Sammy on antibiotics to help with the infection and hoped this would improve his ability to use his rear legs.
