This tiny calico was given a second chance at life thanks to those at the San Diego Humane Society. She's sporting a purple cast on her leg to help her heal. This little girl is now in good hands.
San Diego Humane Society wrote on Facebook:
"This year, one of our first residents is Sprinkles, a little girl who needed urgent medical care. She came to us severely injured; we believe her umbilical cord wrapped around her rear leg and cut off her circulation. At such a tender young age, with her eyes still closed, Sprinkles was in a delicate condition. It was vital that we were able to nourish her so she could begin the healing process. Currently, Sprinkles is wearing a cast on what remains of her back leg."
"We will keep you up to date on Sprinkles’ journey as she travels her path to recovery."
Meet Sprinkles the cat, a little fighter who was given a second chance at life thanks to those who didn't give up on her despite her injury.
She came to the shelter with a severely injured leg. "Sprinkles was in a delicate condition. It was vital that we were able to nourish her so she could begin the healing process." They put her on a purple cast to help her get better.
Sprinkles needs to be bottle fed round the clock.
Nom nom nom... She has a big appetite.
Sprinkles moves around just fine in spite of her cast.
She made a friend this week names Leprechaun! They love to spend time together :).
Sprinkles is well on her path to recovery.
