Katie the Kitten - Unable to Walk



Misty arrived in a cardboard box from a Newark resident who released the 3 month old kitten to our shelter. He advised that she had "broken back legs" and he had no funds. The owner stated that his 15 year old cousin had punched/hit the young female cat. Sadly, the back legs seemed totally useless. The Society has notified the SPCA to see if they will do anything.

The Society's Medical Dept. found no broken back legs nor breaks in the spine. X-rays cannot show soft tissue damage, so the x-rays and Misty were sent to Pet PT in Cherry Hill who has done amazing work with patience and therapy on several injured dogs that have come through our doors.

After an extensive and experienced examination, Dr. Russ Howe-Smith advised that the spine had been damaged through some type of trauma and bruising. It will take some time, along with physical and water therapy (yes, a cat in water!) and we will keep you updated on our website.

Now re-named Katie, she is an adorable, playful and has already made a new friend in Gus, one of Dr. Howe-Smith's rescued dogs.

The Society's Res-Q Fund has been a blessing to many of the sick and injured animals that come through our doors. Donations from this fund help to offset the tremendous expense that occurs which each sick and injured animal requiring treatment and care.

For more information on Kate, call the Society at 609-693-1900 or e-mail us. The Society is located at Humane Way off Lacey Road in Forked River. We are open 7 days a week and welcome your visit!

Check out Katie in her first physical therapy session.
