ResQte Of the Week: Alfie

Alfie is a 9 week old kitten that was rescued from Chicago animal control. Her feet were bandaged so the rescue didn’t know what to expect. When she was taken to the vet they discovered that she had no back feet! She had experienced some unknown trauma before she was found and is now healing at her foster home. Alfie gets weekly vet care and is under the supervision of a super surgeon. Once she is old enough the vet will be able to determine what course of action to take. For now, she is a happy and active little kitten who doesn’t know she is different.” -Kara B.

    Oh poor baby Alfie. Such a beautiful face.

  2. I really can’t start crying this early in the morning. I really hope Alfie finds the love he deserves with a good family.

    @Susan. I get sad and volcanically angry at the same time when I see things like this. At least she has found the help and care she needs and deserves.

  4. Sweet girl! She could be Cassidy’s girlfriend.

  5. Awwwwwwww wittle fuzzball 🙂

  6. What a beautiful little face! God bless Alfie and lead her to a loving home.

  7. She isn’t different, she’s extra special 🙂

  8. What LunaChickFringe said. It’s sad and anger-inducing to see little ones like Alfie, but at least she is in good hands now. Thank you to everyone helping this baby!

  9. Yeah, but now she’ll most likely have a happy ending. A forever home, good medical attention and people who will want to help her get around with new back feet.

    She certainly doesn’t look worried in this picture.

  10. How could you keep from wanting to plant a little peck on that little baby head?

  11. I predict that people will be lined up around the block to adopt this little angel and she will live happily ever after!
