A man was walking his dogs when he spotted a tiny kitten in a ditch on the side of the road, waiting for someone to help her.
They named her Shadow as she was found in the shadows.
"My husband Jean-Guy found a severely injured kitten on the side of the road while he was walking the dogs," Cheryl shares with Love Meow.
When he inspected the kitten's injuries, he was shocked by just how bad her two front paws were. He rushed the kitten to the vet where they bandaged her up and scheduled her for surgery. "She needed to have her front leg and some toes on her right front paw amputated."
Jean-Guy gave the kitten a much needed bath and comforted her, assuring her that everything was going to be all right.
After the life-saving surgery, Shadow reached out her paw for a cuddle.
The little sweet kitty wasn't bothered by the stitches at all.
Because she always had her humans by her side.
Shadow was on the mend!
Her purrs reverberated throughout the room. She was happy to be loved.
During her recovery, they were there for her every step of the way.
Nothing makes Shadow happier than snuggling with her human dad, her rescuer.
She nuzzled in the crook of his neck, purring away.
With a lot of love, Shadow was completely healed. She grew into a gorgeous black panther kitty!
She still loves to reach out her front paw for attention and cuddles. Some things never change.
She's full of curiosity and wants to know everything her humans are doing.
Shadow is puzzled as in why her humans would put themselves in
Even with just three legs, Shadow can do anything just like any other cat.
A big stretch!
It's been three years since they found Shadow lying on the side of the road. She lost one arm, but gained full health and a wonderful life with loving humans and many furry siblings.
She still begs for attention and love with that one paw stretch like she did three years ago. Shadow knows she's loved.
