Minerva

Minerva came to us indirectly through another rescue group because she was unable to walk in her back legs. Our doctors could find nothing obvious except a possible deformity or trauma high up in her spine.  She had also been shot twice in the shoulders with what appeared to be pellets or BBs, but those were not positioned to affect her spine unless they had migrated. She was prescribed steroids and bed rest.  She recovered to some extent, but still moves with an odd gait with her rear legs. She does not jump well, but can manage lower heights, and we have yet to see her actually run at all. She has some issues with elimination as well, and we anticipate more in the future.  She is extremely affectionate, and has taken on the role of kitten nanny for baby kittens that come our way.  She is the only Commune Cat who has found a way to earn her keep with a helpful job!
