A compassionate cat brings a litter of kittens to a front yard, and among them is one who needs help to walk and run alongside his brother.
Two kittens were brought to a front yard by a cat. One of them needed help so he could walk and run with his brother someday.
A feral cat showed up outside a resident’s home and decided to raise her kittens there. While they were living in the front yard, the homeowner discovered that one of the kittens had deformed limbs.
The orange tabby’s back legs were splayed out to the sides and his front limbs appeared twisted. The finder reached out to her local cat rescue and hoped to get the kitten the care he needed to thrive.
Upon receiving the request, Jennifer Csenge, founder of Kitten Nuggets, didn’t hesitate to take on the kitten named Milton and his brother, Nash.
“I couldn’t leave Nash behind.” The feral cat mom was spayed, retired from motherhood, and is being cared for by volunteers.
The two kittens came into foster care, eager for affection from people. They were set up in a comfortable nursery with soft bedding and plenty of good food.
At mealtime, Milton would scream at the top of his lungs, while his brother Nash tried to keep up with his endearing silent meows and chatters.
“Milton had swimmer’s syndrome in his back legs (so they splayed out) and because of this, he had a flat chest (his ribs were flattening which squished his heart and lungs),” Jennifer told Love Meow.
“He also had bent front arms, which x-rays showed he was missing some bones in his wrists.”
Because Milton rotated his wrists and walked on the back of his paws, he needed treatment to correct his legs, train his muscles to walk normally and fix his chest.
“After my vet placed the hobbles on his back legs and splinted his front limbs, it kept him off his chest, and his chest rounded out on its own without a brace.”
