This is a very special story of a kitten that was found on the North Side of Chicago. He was living outside in the freezing cold weather with his mom and siblings. Sergio was easy to catch due to not being able to use his back legs. I took him to the vet immediately and it was discovered via radiograph that little Sergio was born without muscle mass and plenty of webbing within the bone area of the back legs. He also has deformed paws, all four. The two front paws are made up of one big toe and the back paws, well are more like little stubs. His tale was never fully formed, either. Sergio is about 4 months old and this is why we are choosing to have this special surgical procedure done. Since he is so young, he still has a chance of building up muscle mass and may be able to use his back legs for the first time! What the surgery will consist of is cutting the webbed part on each side and removing parts of it so muscle can form where it should. Then he will need to go trhough therapy. The positive thing is, he was tested and he actually tried to pull his back leg away, so he does have feeling in both of them! If this surgery does not work, he will be fitted for a wheelchair, but we will remain optimistic until we know otherwise. If you can help us to help Sergio in anyway, we are always truly grateful! We are a 501, so all donations are tax deductible. Can we get to the goal we need to get to in hopes of Sergio being able to walk using his back legs? The surgery cannot be done until we meet our goal and time is of the essence, since he is so young, there is so much hope! Thank you! More Pictures available upon request. I can only upload one...sorry.
