Ash Hit By Car

By : Roxanne

Ash was hit by a car and requires an operation to fix broken legs and pelvis



Date : Feb 01 2013

Animal Aid Vermillion Area received a call that a lady had found a cat that appeared to have a broken leg after being hit by a car in Albany LA. Upon taking him to the vet, it was apparent there was more to it than just a broken leg.

Despite his injuries, he is the absolute sweetest cat ever. I had him wrapped in a towel while at the vet, and he would reach up and gently pet my face with his paw and never stopped purring. Even the vet is in love with him. She said he is the sweetest cat she has ever met, even being in pain. She named him Ash.

Both of his back legs are broken, the right one is broken at the bottom of the femur, right above the knee. The left break is an FHO, so it is broken at the very top of the femur, where the ball of the femur meets the hip joint.  She said Ash's pelvis even looks to have a few small fractures. But he sits up as normally as he can, and even when she would move his legs, etc he would just gently nudge her hand with his head like he was saying "just pet me instead." Such a sweet kitty.

It is estimated his operation will be about $700 and his basic vetting including neuter and shots will be about another $100. He is being treated at Denham Springs Animal Hospital.  Anything you can give to help us help this sweet baby is very much appreciated!
