Sparrow is thriving now, she is eating much better, and now weights over three pounds! She loves to purr, and lets us hold her and talk to her. She is playful; she loves to chase balls in her small cage. She is not able to be out of confinement due to her injury. She is still taking her pain medication, as we do not want her to have any pain.
As stated last week she needs a femoral head and Neck Ostectomy (FHO for short) To repair her broken hip.
This has to be done for her comfort, or she will suffer chronic pain and have troubles with her hip for the rest of her life.
Dr. John Gumbs is going to perform the procedure on Friday, December 10th.
We need her to get a little bit bigger before we feel she can safely have this surgery performed.
She still does not have “parents” but we are hoping we will be able to find her a special home, for such a special girl who is a survivor. Can you imagine such a tiny kitten being ran over by a car & having to avoid others coming at her? She is so grateful for the people who saved her.
I will post an update once her surgery has been performed.
Good luck Sparrow.
