First Post!

Hi, my name is Stevie and I am about 9 months old.Β  I was playing outside one Saturday afternoon when I found a cool wriggly noodle creature I’d never met before. It looked like something I could swat at and play with, but turns out it did NOT want to play with me! The doctors tell me that it was a venomous snake. Oh no!

This dangerous noodley snake bit my front leg pretty badly.Β  I thought I’d be okay at first, but then I started to feel woozy and then I couldn’t move my leg anymore. Thankfully, my Mom was looking for me and found me hiding behind a potted plant (it was the only thing I could think to do!) and rushed me to the UF Small Animal Hospital as fast as she could. It was something like Fast and Furious, not that I’ve ever watched it myself (being a smol kitten and all.)

The doctors, students and staff worked very hard to save my life! I tried to tell them how thankful I was with lots of purrs. Unfortunately, my leg was so hurt that it wasn’t that great at walking and playing anymore, so we decided it’d be better to be a sort of pirate kitten.Β  I said goodbye to my bum leg May 11th, to live the best tripawd kitty life that a kitty can live!
Mom’s making this blog to keep track of my recovery, so any cheery comments and prayer is much ap”paw”ciated . And we’ll keep you all updated on my progress as I learn to live the tripawd kitty life.
