THREE-LEGGED KITTEN



Never Give-up or Despair ...

My house has been a place where tamed stray cats had made their homes. Cats come and go and we try to provide food and shelter whenever we could.
Two years ago my daughter had bought a cat but later on decided decided to leave it at our house. About two months ago, this cat which we called Oren (because of her orange/white colour) had given birth for the third time to five kittens. All the kittens are normal except for one which has only three legs or limbs.

The Balancing-Act

So, since birth, this three-legged kitten has been struggling especially during feeding time where she has to compete with her siblings to milk. She has always been the loser as she had to balance herself only with three limbs. She did not give up that easily... she has to survive... The mother cat normally seen to spend sometime with this 'special' kitten after the other four kittens had moved away. So, there are lessons to be learnt from a cat's family too...

Oren seems tired after feeding time

We will try our best to ensure that this three-legged kitten will pull through the difficult time growing up with her siblings despite her handicap.
As life has got to go on and the survival of the fittest will always prevail so we have to offer our helping hand to assist the handicapped to survive too ...
