We already sent a plea out on this baby.  She is such a sweet heart and I think she deserves a chance.  When ever I walk into cat eval she meows at me in order to make me pay attention to her.  She is no longer dragging her legs behind her, she is still limpling slightly.


cat is friendly but lame on right rear leg.  She turns leg inward at
the knee and is not bearing full weight on leg
a:  injured right rear leg suspect knee injury

Despite injuries cat allows me to pet her head and back, she also did not mind me touching her back feet. She comes up to the front of her kennel and rubs her body against the kennel door purring. When I extend my hand towards her she meets me half way to bump her head into my hand. Loves wet food and catnip. Rec sending a plea on this sweet kitty.
