Cora joined the Louie's Legacy Family in the beginning of December 2013. She was pulled from the Yonkers Shelter in New York, with what we were told was a broken leg. After the cast removal and 3 evaluations it was unanimous that she has a stage 4 luxating patella in her back leg. Basically, Cora's knee cap has completely come out of the groove which would normally hold it in place. It has floated up her leg and as a result she does not put any pressure on it and hops around on three legs. Cora is said to be about 2 and a half and is a very happy cat. She has learned to compensate with her disability but as she gets older we are told it will only get worse and more discomforting.

We are trying to raise money to cover the cost of Cora's amputation which is scheduled for March 12th. The cost of the entire procedure is $850.  Our goal is $1,200, to help with the cost of her three veterinary opinions, diagnostics and certain extra costs following surgery.

We are excited to finally get Cora the surgery she needs so she may live the happy and pain free life she deserves. Cora currently lives with her cat foster sister and two Doxi foster brothers. She is a Maine Coon and truly stunning. She loves to eat and chirp like a bird. She also will play fetch but most of all she just loves to curl up in a ball and cuddle with you. She is such a special soul and it was instant love at first sight when her foster mother took her home.

Any amount is helpful and we thank you in advance. Cora will be up for adoption once she is all healed and would be a great addition to any home!
