Calinore says: One day a neighbour came to our door here in France asking which shelter was best for abandoned cats. My mother was sorry because she knew of no such place... sometimes cats get adopted from shelters but there are so many of them that a lot are put to sleep after only two weeks. The lady explained that her daughter had found a kitten on a parking lot. He had a problem with his paw and neither of them could keep him because they both had dogs in their houses. Without thinking twice my mother said she would adopt him. All the cats we have had at home have always been poor little things mistreated or abandoned. One was found in the subway. One was found tied to a tree. One came from a shelter and was already grown. (No one wants to adopt an adult.)

Anyway, the kitten arrived and immediately he was fed and installed in a room away from the other two cats. We took him to the vet to check on his paw and the vet said the leg was broken but nothing could be done immediately because he was so young. Gradually we introduced him to the other cats and he was allowed to discover the whole house. Now he is full of beans. He is an adorable cutie and he doesn't seem bothered by his leg... he'll be operated if necessary but mother nature sometimes takes care of such problems. My mother is an English teacher, and she went to United States many times because she has friends in Texas. That's why the kitten is called Tex.

Calinore, you and your Mom have such a soft heart. Tex is a beautiful addition to your family and I am so grateful you saved his sweet life. I had a kitten years ago whose leg got slammed in a car door--the vet said his green bone would heal by itself, and it did.

Such a handsome little cattie. I wonder what you named him? I am so glad that you took him in and gave him such a nice home and are going to attend to his broken leg. Precious little kitten with such large blue eyes!

I have a boy cat named Junebug. He had a broken leg when we got him. His leg looks just like Tex's. We couldn't have his fixed and it didn't slow him down one bit! Tex is a cutie.

We have had three cats with broken legs. One as an adult got caught in a fox trap and the vet said her leg was in alignment and would heal by itself, and it did. Another as a young adult got in the fan belt of our car and his leg had to be amputated as it was just hanging by a thread. The third one we don't know what happened but his leg was badly out of place and he had to have it set under sedation and he had a bad reaction to the sedation and nearly died. They reversed it and gave him a different kind and then the leg was set and he was in a "walking" cast for 6 weeks. He was fine after the cast came off.
