...it's as if I have no tail! This is what Tuhkatriinu (Cinderella) would say if she spoke. She no longer wears her Elizabethan collar, though she believes it would have complimented her royal look wonderfully for the photo.
The grey furred kitten, just four months old and injured, was found at a bus stop by Haljala road and delivered to the Virumaa animal shelter. From there she was immediately taken to a veterinary clinic – it appeared that she had been run over by a car. The kitten, named Tuhkatriinu (Cinderella) at the clinic, is one lucky girl. She had a severe skin wound on her left back leg, haemorrhages in her groin, skin adhesion displacement and a lifeless tail. But she was alive! An X-ray also showed internal bone damage and the kitten was diagnosed with fractures in both pubic bones in her pelvis that should heal with restful downtime. The wound was sutured and Tuhkatriinu was kept for observation. We could only hope that this tough little cookie would come through and her internal organs would start to function, because her little body was in very bad shape. The next day we brought Tuhkatriinu to the shelter and coddled her as best we could. We eagerly waited for crucial developments – could her body discharge its waste? In a few days we felt like proud parents, beaming over baby's first BM! Because she couldn't move her tail, it had to be amputated to prevent further injury. Tuhkatriinu had to give up her mighty swisher for her health and now struts out a cute little bunny tail.
Tuhkatriinu is now recovering in the care of the shelter. The shelter can help the kitty casualty only thanks to its generous supporters – our caring donators. The procedures at the clinic and the special food at the shelter cost 400 euros in total. Help our sweet Cinderella while she waits for her Prince Charming!
