He is the sweetest little guy. We’re not sure how much of his mobility he will regain, if any, but we’ll know a lot more tomorrow when he sees one of our vets. He does have some spinal damage. In the meantime the preemie diapers are absolutely huge on him so they’re being held up by a rubber band. Fortunately he doesn’t seem to be in any pain. He’s not walking but he does get up on all fours which doesn’t stop him from zooming around dragging his back legs behind him.

Scooter was born with a deformed leg which we had our vet remove. He’s not doing very well with his other back leg but time will tell. Isn’t he just the cutest little guy? He’s going into foster tomorrow. The rest of his family still needs a foster so come in if interested.
We have two big fundraisers coming up: Italian Fest and our 4th Annual Bike Run.
We need gift baskets or new things to put in baskets or anything of value that can be raffled off at these events. If you can put a basket together for us or can donate items that we can put in a basket, let us know or just drop it off during open hours at the shelter. if you are crafty and would like to support us, feel free! We really depend on these events to raise money to care for the cats and kittens in our charge.
