Pearl & Chai's Story
Hello everyone, we are Pearl and Chai, and boy have we had a crazy first 12 weeks of life!
We were born outside, our mum had chosen to give birth to us and our other siblings between a fence and an extension. It was really tight in there! When WAR arrived, they tried to rescue mum first but she ran away. They then focused on getting us out of that space, they evem had to use a net!
On examination, WAR discovered that all four of us kittens were intertwined! Realising we couldn't be separated on scene, we were immediately rushed straight to the vets. Our umbical cords had become entangled around the legs of all four of us kittens and we needed to be mildy sedated to be able to separate us.
Sadly, the damage had already been done to Pearl and I. WAR decided, along with the team at the vets, that the best chance for our survival was to immediately remove our damaged rear legs, so yes we are the tripod sisters!
Good news however is whilst we were at the vets, a neighbour of the lady who called to report us phoned to say he'd managed to get our mum into his house and pop her in a carrier! That meant our siblings got to go into foster with our mum which was fantastic news!
After our surgery, we had to be hand-reared by the Hairy One at Team WAR as we required special care. We got bigger and stronger and eventually went to live with our foster family.
We are enjoying being part of a busy household and now live with 2 other cats, kids and a dog. We had our first injections and whilst there, our foster mum mentioned that Pearl's stump does get cut open ( her stump is a bit longer than mine).
The vet said that Pearl will need her stump amputated but she needs to be a bit bigger, so WAR will be booking her in for an operation. She'll still be the same gorgeous sister I've always had afterwards though.
Once Pearl has recovered from her surgery, we will be looking for our forever home. We'll need a family who will make sure we're okay and give us lots of strokes! We will be looking for an indoor home, to keep us safe as we're not quite as quick on our paws. Thanks for reading, we look forward to meeting our future family!
