chekov was hit by a car. originally he came from our shelter, but soon after adoption the cat escaped from the household. they never found him, nor bonded with him. chekov then was hit by a car and because he was microchipped from us we took ownership of the man. the vets we work with said his front leg was shattered, so they removed it and his shoulder on that side. also, his jaw was broken right down the middle. there is a wire in it to help it heal.
aside from that, chekov is doing great. we’re giving him some PT every day to strengthen up his remaining legs. he is on pain medication which takes the edge off. he loves to be baby-talked and whispered too. he will make cookies for you with his lone front paw.
we are doing a big newsletter story and hope that will get him adopted to a special home.
