Kingsley (Adopted)

Meet Kingsley! He is a Brown Tabby MaleDomestic Short Hair and is (approximately) 2 years 10 months old. He has been adopted!

We took in Kinglsey late on Saturday, July 7th. He was brought to us by someone that trapped him in their yard. He went right to my fosters house and she cleaned him up and put him in a crate. She just wanted him to settle in for the night before she began deworming and flea treatments and all the normal stuff we do for kittens upon intake.
The following morning she realized he was crying and the only thing that soothed him was being held. Every time she put him down, he started crying again, at times, he was inconsolable.
On Monday my foster called me and we talked about his crying. It’s not uncommon for a “singleton” to cry, but this sounded to be a bit more than just a “lonely cry”. I told her to check him over good and make sure there was nothing wrong with him, and to put a stuffed animal in the crate with him. I got a call about an hour later saying he was not using his right front leg and that she thought his paw might be injured.
I drove to her house immediately to check him out. I discovered he was non-weight bearing on his right front leg, and I really felt like his leg might be broken.
Over the next 2 days, we made calls, got a Vet to see him and take X-rays. Meanwhile, he was being kept quiet and on pain meds until we could get things straightened out. Being a small rescue, we had to be careful about expenses, so we made sure to get him seen by a Vet that could help refer us to a surgeon that could fix him if that’s what needed to happen. Sure enough, his leg was broken, a lovely oblique fracture of the right humerus. He had two options, amputation or repair, and we explored both options. Sure, amputation (alone) was cheaper, (from one Vet) and yes, tripods do fine, BUT, this is a healthy 8-week old kitten with a clean break. Repairing it should be relatively straightforward.
Update 10/06/2018
Kingsley has finished healing from having his broken leg set, he has also been neutered, combo tested (Neg/Neg), he has had 2 FVRCP vaccinations and his rabies vaccine. Next week he gets his final FVRCP and he is ready to fo to his new home. This boy is so sweet, despite having been in cage rest for so many weeks. He is loving, playful and an all-around adorable little boy. He is great with our small dogs, all the other cats and kittens, and even kids! He is a short little guy and looks at first glance to be fat, but he is not. He is purrfectly healthy and playful and needs a family of his very own to love him.
