Our rescued newborn kitten


It was the end of the day and I was napping in my cubbyhole as usual, when suddenly there was a wave of excitement.  An animal lover had rescued a kitten and was looking for help.  I looked over and watched as Dr. Carter assessed the tiniest little bundle of white fluff I had ever seen. She was only hours old, weighing a mere ¼ pound and so vulnerable and helpless.  Her umbilical cord was wrapped around her back leg.  I heard Dr. Carter tell the staff that this had stopped the leg from fully forming and her prognosis was guarded.  Despite it not looking so good for this little girl, I heard all the staff agree they just had to give her a chance, something about her made them want to try.  It is what I love about my family at SBVH, they are always willing to do whatever it takes to help a pet in need.  Dr. Carter took care of little “Aces” (that is what they have named her) and they have started her on antibiotics.  Over the next few weeks I will keep you posted on how she is doing.
