On Jan. 2, 2018, we received Chino, a yellow-and-white domestic shorthair cat. Both of his back legs were broken. The rescue that found him didn’t have the means to care for him and asked if we would take him. We did, and took him to our regular vet, who said we needed to take him to a vet who could handle his severe injuries. The left leg had a dislocated femur and the other leg had been fractured in two places. The plan was to amputate the leg with the two fractures. Chino had surgery on the dislocated femur. This was successful, but while the left was healing, the right leg with the two fractures also healed. When he went back to the vet after six weeks, the vet was in awe that he could walk on both legs! Chino has gotten better and better and is being adopted. After all he has been through, he is a very loving cat. I will miss him.
