Wow! That's really cool! Glad to see people who care about this little kitty!

I definitely think contacting a rescue or shelter would be more than willing to help.

It's sad how we live in a throw away world...if it's not normanl or not wanted get rid of it.....sad.....i would do any thing posable for this little guy!! Think of it..it's young enough to not to remember how it felt to walk on all fours.......and learn to conpensate on it's own with a wheel chair or not it will do fine.....for years we had a barn cat named stumpy who lost his back paw right after birth...he never had a problem

It's unfortunate it happened but as everyone else has said, I also think it would be better to let this little kitten move on to the next world.

I know how you feel farmpony. I had a little barn kitten come running over to me one day (very few are tame enough for people) He was just the sweetest thing, very friendly and fluffy. I put him down on the ground and in a flash my Tom cat had him. Unfortunatly his little neck was injured and he couldn't hold his head up. I was home alone so I had to shoot him myself. One of those things I will never forget. I've shot varments, possums and rats and such but never a fluffy sweet kitten. He wasn't going to live and was in obvious misery. I think I did the right thing.

Aww..me neither vida..that is sad! Well as for farmpony-you could try and go to the vet and make sure that there REALLY is nothing you can do. Just don't put him through pain even more if its really bad.and vida-maybe that was a sad way to go but at least he wasn't in pain with his neck injured.so sad--this topic made me sad! Geez I almost cried when I found a dead snake in my backyard!

Omg...please please take it to the vet! It quite possibly could have been helped if you had taken it earlier....proberly not ...but maby, But I would think the chances now have gone. Sorry if I sound mean but it really should have been taken asap, not left for a week with such an injury.

I volunteer at a animal shelter and they have been able to rehome a blind deaf kitten before. So theres no way to say if the vets would straight away put this kitten down.

If the little thing is so injured and its not taken care of im sorry but I see it as neglect/ cruelty in a way, even if you meant well, which im sure you do.

Not trying to have a go...but please take it to the vet.

It took several days to catch it after it happend, it was under the pallets under all the hay... for being broken it's pretty mobile. I have it in a big cage now. It eats and drinks, it's litter trained and uses it's toys. I have to clean it everyday but I still need to do something with it. I e-mailed tons of rescue organizations that boast about taking care of special needs animals.... NONE of them have responded to me......
