For the love of Simba

The continue of the start of Simba’s story

We are now on June 9th 2016!! The vets clinic called first thing to let us know that Simba was ready to come home. Theo and I went to get him!! Dr. Eversal walked us through what was going on with Simba and he’s medication. Simba had fractured he’s leg in the growth plate because he’s foot had some what warmed up over night….Dr. Eversal was confident that the leg was possible saveable. She gave us an antibiotic, pain meds, and eye ointment!!

The 1st few days home all Simba did was cuddle with he and play here and there. Simba was terrified of the dogs which is understanding as he is a wild kitten! This was hard for Nala and that made it a bit hard for me! Nala is the second momma in the house she loves everyone!! Reggie didn’t really pay attention to the kitten for the first few days!!

When Reggie did notice he reacted a lot different than expected. He would come close to the kitten and hiss then run off!! This went on for about a week then Reggie wanted to play!! With the kitten injured we allowed them to play but would sometimes have to put Reggie in the bathroom as he would get to rough.

This past Monday on June 20th, 2016 we called the vets office cause over the weekend Simba’s leg took a major turn for the worst….(when you find your fur babies dead they are rock solid) that is how Simba’s leg was at this point! We took him in and Dr. Dixion told us the leg was dead that he would need to amputate the hind leg now! Well we had been told by the vet the main reason why they didn’t wanna do the amputation is that Simba was in bad shape health wise when we found him plus anybody is put at risk with anesthesia and they estimated Simba to be 10 weeks old on he’s 1st visit! Which makes it hard to dose him right!!

We made the surgery for today (Friday June 24th, 2016) We dropped him off this morning and I have been nervous and worried! I want the call to get her that we have a perfectly imperfect tripawed healthy kitten. I know that we all have a hard road a head of us especially this precious kitten!! But love has no boundaries and we are Simba’s family now and we will be here through all the good and bad!! Keep this sweet fur baby in your prayers please!!

    I’m rooting for Simba! Thanks for saving the wee mite and best wishes for him to recover smoothly and quickly from his surgery. He is clearly a tough little guy and I think he will be fine!

    Your little Simba will do well. Kittens are feisty and just want to eat, play, sleep and play some more. My Mona, who had her leg amputated 2 years ago, is 10 years old and still loving life and teaching me something new everyday. Simba is adorable!
