A FKC volunteer received a phone call from one of her friends in Cameron Park that an orange kitty had been walking around for a couple of weeks on just 3 legs. There was a large gash on his front leg that was bleeding with pus coming out. She thought the leg might be broken. Evidently, different neighbors asked around and no one owned this little guy. He had been seen running with a colony for some time. Some of the neighbors would put food out for them.
After he became injured, the other cats in the colony started picking on him and chasing him off. After speaking with a neighbor, our volunteer was able to catch him and the went to pick him up. It ends up that Chewy is actually very sweet and friendly, and obviously was just abandoned. Amazingly, this kitty’s leg was a mess and he knew that she was there to help him; he just leaned into her and purred. What a great little guy!
