With every new case we discover new things, not only about the nature of animals but about our own…
STAR must have been playing happily with his siblings on the street until the monster arrived and started throwing kicks left right and center. The kitties ran for cover, they were fast and incredibly agile, but one of them wasn´t fast enough and received a brutal kick on her flank… and then another.
The hip was crushed, and with it the nerves flowing alongside it. The nerves controlling Star´s ability to move, and to control her bodily functions were also affected.
Right now Star is paralyzed and needs manual assistance to pee.
The only viable solution is a surgical one. We are going to try to reset her hip and free the nerves from their contraction. Star has a certain level of sensibility on her legs, so not all is lost..
Her situation is desperate, but please watch this video and tell me what do you see?
I tell you what you see… you see a loving kitty whose world has been shattered, a kitty asking for love, for tenderness… a kitty that needs a loving committed family more than any other kitty, because he will depend on them.
We are going to try to make STAR recover the mobility of her legs… right now she is being stabilized, receiving painkillers and anti-inflammatories and she will be operated as soon as possible.
Once again, we need our community to come to the rescue. Once again a kitty in total despair and with no future needs us..
UPDATE 15 October..
STAR IS GOING TO FOLLOW A CONSERVATIVE TREATMENT!!!
For the last couple of days we´ve doing new XRays and a CT SCAN to have an even deeper understanding of the reach of her injuries.
The results have been discussed among three of the best veterinary teams in the country. In the end STAR´s tiny size and the extensive damage in the sacrum and the nerves flowing in that area, our medical counsel has decided to postpone the surgery and follow a conservative treatment instead.
We still have hope and we are going to do things as easy as possible for her, but right now we are going to have to rely on her strength and that the treatment will produce the desired results.
Update 17 October
