Raven is the sweetest little black and white kitten with deep blue eyes that you have ever seen. Raven's loving and great personality wins over anyone who meets her. She has over 1800 loving Raven's Angels on her FaceBook page called "A Future For Raven". She has been interviewed by the local tv station and had a feature newspaper article written about her.
Raven was born on 3/14/13 deaf and with vision issues and has a rare condition where her two front legs are shorter than normal cats. Her front paws are what are considered "mitt" paws or abnormally large. Her hind legs are twisted. Her left hind leg is twisted completely around to where her paw is facing in the opposite direction with severe clubbed feet on her back paws which make it nearly difficult for her to sit for long periods of time before she falls over from lack of upper body strength and it is even harder for her to walk. She is improving since she has started seeing her Dr twice a week for a splint on the worst of her legs. She can now walk and even bunny hop for a minute or two but it really takes a lot out of her. Plus, she doesn't eat on her own at this time so we are bottle feeding her a special mixture so that she will gain the weight that she needs to improve on since her mother has rejected Raven. Even though Raven is getting older she is still lagging in some developmental areas.
Raven has a regular Dr. now and has been diagnosed with the following:
-Angular Limb Deformities in both hind legs.
- Mild Valgus at R carpus
-Severe Varas At Metatarsophangeal joint and
at tarsal joint
-Walks on Lateral Surface of
distal Metatarsal 5 w/Toes
Curled Mediocaudally
-RR Club Foot
-Visual Challenges but will have to be older to test
-Deaf but will have to be older to test for complete diagnoses
-Shortened front legs
With one paw that points outwards in front.
Raven will need to see her Dr. on a bi-weekly bases for her splints to be changed and to be observed for any sores that the splints may have caused. She will also need monthly x-rays to chart the growth and development so that her future surgeon can decide on the best approach for surgery.
She will also need to see a specialist for her vision and another one to confirm the Dr.s diagnoses of Raven being deaf. Ultimately, Raven will need therapy and corrective surgeries along with medical supplies for her splints. She will refereed to San Antonio, TX to see her specialists when that time comes and her surgery will most likely be done at the South Texas Veterinarian Specialist who only take patients in our region by referral.
We are doing everything that we can and it breaks our hearts to ask for outside help. We are just so grateful that there are so many loving people who we call Raven's Angels on her Facebook page A Future For Raven: A Kitten Born With Disabilities-her whole story is posted there and we make daily posts and pictures of her progress. Plus, pictures from the very beginning and update videos on Ravens progress as she gets older.
