3-legged, one eye

Beautiful Brighty

i have a kitty who has three legs, one eye, cystitis and stomatitis. She's quite the character! Nothing slows her down. She fusses at my other cats, climbs the stairs and sleeps on the couch and bed. I feed her on a chair to keep her away from the other kitties when she eats her special diet. Best thing i can do for her is just keep her conditions under control - after that she's quite able to run her own life!

Oh my gosh, what a beautiful kitty! I have a three-legged kitty myself, Vinnie, whose left eye was scarred by a bad URI. Her back right leg was amputated in the shelter. The Field Services team found her walking the streets on a pawless leg. They couldn't figure out if she'd lost the paw in a fight or if she'd born without one. In any case, her poor leg was infected and wasn't salvageable. But, frankly, she gets around just fine and I've stopped thinking that she's "special needs." It's amazing how adaptable animals are.

Vinnie and my dad are special friends. In fact, I named her Lavinia James, the James being for my dad. He had his own right leg amputated when he was 18 and I think that's part of the reason I fell in love with Vinnie right away. She and my dad are kindred spirits.
