Help Happy Feet Tip Tap to Recovery

Why we need your help

Gables Dogs and Cats Home are appealing for help after taking in a 10 day old kitten with a significant physical deformity; his back feet are bent backwards. Without treatment he is unlikely to ever be able to walk properly and experience a good quality of life. As a genuine non-euthanasia charity they will not give up on this poor little kitten and are determined to give him a chance at survival. They have affectionately named him Happy Feet, as they are optimistic that with their care and support he will be able to heal over time and live as normal a life as possible. 
The charity took Happy Feet to their vets with great trepidation, fearing the worst. After an examination, and knowing that Gables won’t give up on any animal, the vet gave them the positive news that it may be possible to fix the kitten’s feet with specialist physio as the issue appears to be muscle-related.
Happy Feet is now receiving gentle physio 3 times a day. Gables are hopeful that over time he will be able to walk. The charity is reaching out to its wonderful supporters for any help they might be able to give towards the cost of Happy Feet’s ongoing care and veterinary support, estimated at around £1000.00. 
Claire Sparkes General Manager says: “When Happy Feet first arrived with us we feared the worst, but after receiving such hopeful news from our vets, we knew we had to give him a chance at life. His mum, named Penguin, and the rest of the litter all appear healthy. As we are a genuine non- euthanasia charity we are determined not to give up on this otherwise healthy kitten, who has already shown us such a will to survive, even at his young age.”
