Meet Popsicle! Popsicle was brought into a high intake shelter. Someone had found her abandoned with popsicle sticks taped to her back legs. We are not sure if someone thought they were helping her or what exactly. Her back legs are not usable. Both of them have hyperextended knees and there is nothing anyone can do.
At time of intake at that shelter, no one really knew what her outcome and prognosis was, we agreed to take her into our shelter and see what could be done. And the above paragraph tells our findings. We even tried getting her a wheelchair but because her legs are stiff, the ones we researched and purchased she was unable to use without dragging her legs which would not be good.
So, she grew into a big kitty, yes, she is fluffy and she scooted around the areas of the shelter sometimes pottying as she scooted but that's ok, we just clean up behind her. She loves life, absolutely loves to play with anything and everything. She loves us and we clearly love her. Popsicle, girl, special needs, long hair
