Luke’s Story –
Luke was rescued from a horrible hoarding situation with several of his siblings when he was 12 weeks old. Luke’s previous owner reluctantly surrendered him knowing that it was the only way for Luke and his brothers and sisters to get the care they so desperately needed.
Once he was brought to his foster home, it was discovered that Luke had a birth deformity which affected his left foot. He was born with his foot facing backwards from the ankle down.
Our trusted veterinarian examined Luke and determined that Luke would start to have severe hip and back issues as he gets older, because of the way he was compensating for his “wonky” foot. When Luke walked on any type of hard surface, his foot would slide out from underneath him causing him to do the splits. The doctor determined the best course of action would be to amputate Luke’s deformed leg so that he would be forced to use his three good legs only.
Fast forward one month, Luke is now a fabulous tri-pod kitty! His incision has healed up nicely, his bruising has completely subsided, and the fur around his surgery site has even started to grow back!
Just as Luke Skywalker’s namesake implies, Luke is fearless, brave and a little bit goofy. He doesn’t let his disability slow him down in the slightest. If fact, I’m not even sure that he knows there is anything different about him. He runs, plays and wrestles with his siblings, just like any other six month old kitten. And this little fluff-ball has the absolute sweetest personality. He loves affection and will nudge your hand with his head if you try to stop petting him before he is ready. One of Luke’s favorite things to do, is to snuggle up against his foster mom at night while she is reading or watching tv. He LOVES his humans! Luke also loves the big dog in his foster house and would do well with respectful children. He’s basically the purr-fect kitty!
Luke Skywalker is neutered, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, microchipped, eats wet and dry food, and is litterbox perfect.
He currently lives with his foster family in West Sacrametno.
