Please Help an Injured Kitty

February 22, 2010

This lovely kitty is Spice Girl! She is the mom cat of Pepper, Parsley and Paprika (see them below).

Spice Girl is a feral kitty, and before she was rescued with her kittens she suffered an injury that has affected her ability to control her tail. At first glance, her tail looks fine but as you watch her move around you can see that her tail just hangs and she can’t wrap it around herself likes cats normally do. She can’t move her tail at all.

We are not sure how she sustained this injury, but the veterinarian says that there is no possibility of repairing the damage as it appears the tail had been broken and could have neurological damage, and so the tail needs to be amputated.

Chip In to Help pay for Spice Girl’s surgery

Or you can send a check to


PO Box 1164

Waxhaw, NC 28173

Spice Girl needs to have this operation whether she is re-released or tamed and adopted, because the tail could become infected and if she is re-released any number of other things could happen if her tail is just hanging behind her, and ultimately cause her to suffer and die. F.U.R.R. is running low on funds and is asking for your help to pay for Spice Girl’s surgery. The vet estimates the surgery will be about $300 and you can make a contribution on our donation page by clicking here: Feline Urgent Rescue & Rehab We really appreciate any help you can give to Spice Girl. She is already spayed, negative for FIV & FeLV, and her vaccinations are up to date.

Here are Spice Girl’s beautiful kittens…

    You saved my cat Emmit. We loved him but were very allergic to Emmit. He spent a lot of time alone and I did not know where to turn until I found F.U.R.R. You worked fast and efficiently to find him a home and for that I thank you so much. He was a very lonely boy.
