Don’t you love it when Tripawd cats and dogs find furever homes? We do! In fact that’s why the Tripawds Rescue Fund covers up to $100 of adoption fees for three-legged rescue pets! Today we hope this Tripawd Tuesday feature will help Sally the Tuxedo Tripawd find a furever family too. If you know someone in the Southern states around Charlotte, North Carolina, please help spread the word about this kitty being cared for by Paws4Life Rescue.
Adopt Sally the Tuxedo Tripawd Rescue Cat
Sally is a young (under 3 years?), healthy, & beautiful tuxedo girl currently in a foster home in the Charlotte, NC area. She was found in the fall of 2016 injured at a feral colony. The caregiver was finally able to trap Sally (after a week or two?) and she was taken to a vet where it was determined that she had a broken leg on one side and a dislocated hip on the other.
Sally went to a foster home until a plan could be put into place to help her and that’s when my small rescue was contacted. We got a fundraiser started and contacted a few other vets for more opinions on what should be done. An amputation was recommended on the broken leg and a “possible” FHO on the dislocated hip (but the FHO could be put off until it was needed, IF it is needed).
Understandably, Sally was very skittish at the foster home after having been out on her own and then sustaining and living with a painful injury. She needed some time to settle in after all she had been through and the foster mom has done great with socializing her. At the end of December Sally had her back right leg amputated and has healed wonderfully.
She has not shown to be painful in her hip, in fact she climbs to the top of the cat tower in her room. She would do well in a more quiet laid-back home where she will get lots of attention, which she will love after she has had time to warm up to her new person and environment. She has become friends with the resident male kitty and the foster kitties in her room so she should also warm up to a calm laid-back feline friend in her new home with proper introductions and time. We’d like to keep Sally local or within a couple of hours of the Charlotte area.
Sally may never be a lap cat and might remain an independent girl for quite some time, but that doesn’t make her any less deserving of a loving, safe, indoor forever home. ~ Please email with questions or for an application.
