At just four months old, poor Mittens was playing in her own backyard when a dog broke through the fence and attacked her. This left the sweet little kitten with a horrendously mauled paw – too graphic to even show.
Unfortunately, Mittens leg was so badly injured that it was unable to be saved – and to relieve her of the dreadful pain she’d been subject to, our vets carefully performed an amputation and put her on a course of pain relief and medication. The feline trooper recovered from her trauma, and was now ready to begin the rest of her life in a new home where she would be so loved.
When Danielle stumbled across Mittens online adoption profile on our website, she instantly knew she was the one for her. “I loved Mittens from the moment I saw her photo and read her bio,” Danielle tells us.
“A love Bug was just what I needed, and I had lots of love to give after my dog passed away last year, so I knew we would love each other as much as we both needed.” When Danielle brought Mittens home and welcomed her into her family forever, it just felt right.
Now that Mittens is living her best life with her new fur mum, she’s not the only one who’s better off. Danielle is just so grateful for Mittens presence in her life, and has a message for everyone who made it possible by kindly donating to her treatment.
“I’d like to thank everyone who donated to help Mittens,” she says.
“She is brave, sweet and funny. She brings so much joy into my life, and she’s changed my life for the better. She’s now living large in her sweet way with a secure back garden to play in, LOTS of cuddles, and toys galore!”
Personally, we don’t think Mittens couldn’t have had a better ending to her rough beginning. – and it’s all thanks to you. From the bottom of our baking tins, we’re so grateful to our Cupcake Day supporters just like you who made Mittens new life with Danielle a reality.
