Brunhilda is an amazing little trooper, who we met through the Michigan Humane Society's efforts to help her through tragedy. MHS responded to a tip about a stray cat who couldn't walk in January 2015 and the found a little kitty with a big heart. She had some major injuries and would need a lot of help, but she purred and kneaded as they tended to her. Ultimately, Brunhilda lost her R rear leg because she had an old open fracture (bones out through the skin) that couldn't be fixed. She also had damage to her L rear paw (a dislocation healed in place and tendon damage resulting in severely curled toes). After a few surgeries at the MHS and prosthesis planning and casting with Pawsitive Steps Rehabilitation & therapy for Pets, Brunhilda was fitted with her "house slipper prosthesis" to help her be a fully functioning 3 legged cat. She was featured in the Detroit Free Press on July 10, 2015, as the MHS was starting to take applications for adoption for Brunhilda. Check out her news story and the wonderful video that the Michigan Humane Society made tracking her progress!
