A kitten named Pumpkin came to the refuge suffering a broken back after a mattress fell on her and the owners couldn't afford to treat her or put her to sleep. Our fantastic vet, Shelley, asked if someone could take her home and massage her back legs daily and Clare, our head dog carer, did just that. After a couple of weeks of dedicated care from Clare, Shelley put splints on little Pumpkin. Two weeks later when the splints were taken off she was able to walk again. Such a miracle. Due to Shelley giving her the chance she needed, Clare's tremendous effort, love and care and Pumpkin's own strong spirit, she made this miraculous recovery. She now has a permanent home with Clare.
