Ottie was has been dismembered with only one leg left.

Ottie was has been dismembered with only one leg left.

 

Just when I thought I have seen it all a case like this comes up and brings me to tears. We don't know this kitty’s history except that she was found dismembered. Yes, dismembered! Sadly, she has one leg and the other three legs are in various states of amputation. That is literally the only information we have to go off on. We have no idea what or who did this. We have no idea of where she came from. We just don’t know. It’s a true miracle she is alive.

Our partners at Little Lotus Rescue and Sanctuary stepped in to save little Ottie life. Their team promised to Ottie that she would survive this horrible abuse. They have a team consisting the director who will foster Ottie and maintain all in-home medical care, a certified animal behaviorist, a veterinary rehabber to assist with rehabilitation, and their veterinarian ready to keep her healthy and pain free. All working with her to help provide Ottie with the best opportunities to live a life of love.

Unfortunately, prosthetics are not an option for her. Ottie can do most things any other cat can. She LOVES comfy beds and uses her kitty box like a pro. People have told Ottie's rescuers to euthanize her because this is no way to live. Everything that she shows us and does tells us otherwise. She is in need of a surgery on two of her remaining stumps to create Padding to make moving easier. We need your help raising the funds for this procedure! 


UPDATE 1-25-18:

Tiny Ottie has been scheduled for her first surgery on one leg to reduce bone and create a natural padding. Doctors had to stabilize her first before any surgery could be performed. We posted a video here. She is moving around well on soft surfaces and is a chatty little girl. We hope her resilience shows through and that you continue to support her along her journey. 

Ottie's surgery and care will be expensive. That is just not the type of funds Little Lotus Rescue has. We have stepped in to help in our own little way. We have created the Animal Abuse Awareness shirts, hoodies, totes and bracelets you see below. We ask that if you would consider one of these items below. It's a great way to show family and friends that not only do you have a cute shirt but you helped save Ottie's life.


Ever wonder how a cat with only one full leg moves around? Let Ottie show you.

Little Lotus Rescue & Sanctuary

Little Lotus Rescue & Sanctuary is an organization in southern Arizona that changes the fate of homeless animals. The volunteer-run rescue lifts the animals out of the shelter system, placing them instead in loving, temporary foster homes. Many of these animals are ill, injured, or suffering from malnourishment, so we attain the necessary medical care to return them to health. Every animal is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Loving foster parents, Veterinarians, and an certified animal behaviorist help them overcome physical and psychological issues to again be healthy, happy pets ready for their permanent homes.
