It seems there’s no end to the reasons why our Tripawd heroes join this community. Take Minnie the marvelous three-legged kitty. One minute she was catching sun beams, the next minute disaster struck. Despite the terrible accident she bounced back and into social media stardom! Here’s her Tripawd Tuesday story as told by momma Pam.
Minnie the kitty was an indoor/outdoor kitty at a farm in the area. She loved lounging in the hay on sunny days and chasing bunnies.
One fateful Friday as she was napping in the hay one of the horses came up to graze. We believe the horse didn’t see her and stepped on her front left leg, crushing it.
Unbelievably, Minnie brought herself up to the house, leg dangling, and meowed at the door until her human opened it. Seeing her leg, of course she was rushed to the emergency vet where she spent the weekend on pain medication and antibiotics until the regular vet was open Monday.
After her amputation, Minnie became an indoor-only cat and has taken to the change and new home with ease. It’s been almost 3 years since her accident. Minnie runs the house and rules the Herd of her brothers and sisters.
