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.

Love this adorable little boy. He seems to be favoring his front leg in this pic but I could be wrong.

Tex is a darling little boy. He is so fortunate that your mom understood the challenges he could face as such a tiny orphan. he looks like a "full of beans" kind of kitty. Just marvelous.
