Story

This is Harvey...our special little boy.

He came before Xmas through "Gumtree" - advertised as "10 week old kitten with two broken legs but is fine and runs around like the rest..." We HAD to get him to make sure he was ok...Harvey has no front leg bone in the front part of his legs - it's a birth deformity and although he is one of the most active, vocal, friendly and CUTEST kitten ever - he isn't in any pain at the moment but he is certainly "not fine".

Glasgow vet school has only seen 5 similar cases of this since 1975...each completely different. As he grows, the pressure on his neck and spine will increase and possibly cause him great amounts of pain.....so the specialists are discussing options that we expect to happen in the next 2 / 3 months....the most likely being he will have operations on both legs at the same time by two teams of surgeons placing internal and external pins on his legs in order to straighten them....we don't know what will happen - we are positive but will always ensure that Harvey has a good standard of life before putting him through anything or by continuing to keep him going. But we will do whatever, regardless of cost.

He will remain in CP care for the forseeable due to the level of care he needs - oh and he also has a wee kink in his tail...we love imperfection...:-) SHOW YOUR LOVE FOR HARVEY PEOPLE OF GLASGOW!!! He has been desperate to meet you all....xx
