Hello, my name is Chad and I am trying to fundraise for "little dude or little guy." This very loving cat was found in some bushes and appeared to be injured. He had some protruding from his hind area and looked like he had a dislocated hind leg.
I recognized this cat and the sibling as belonging to a resident of a complex where I work. I was able to find its sibling but the sibling appeared to have been beaten and was passing and I was not able to save her. I was able however to take this guy away from harm and to a much safer place.
After some investigation, it appears that this little guy and his sibling were actually abused by the former owner and were witnessed by a neighbor. I will spare you the horrific and terrible details as to what was witnessed. I am not sure how someone can do something so horrific to something so tiny and innocent but, here we are.
We have taken little guy/dude to the vet and they did x-rays, it shows that he has an upper respiratory infection and that his hind leg was broken away from the ball joint in his hip. See picture below.
We had a consultation with the surgeon and the surgeon gave us the next steps and plan to get him back "up and running" and that is to remove the ball joint currently in the hip and create a new joint and allow the scar tissue around it to create the new joint (there was a lot of medical jargon).
So, we are looking for whatever you have on your heart to give toward giving this little guy a new leg on life.
We truly appreciate anything even good vibes at this time.
