Rain's Story

Rain & her sister Robin had just given birth outdoors in a rural neighborhood.  Rain had 3 kittens, Robin had 5.  Robin would not nurse so I had to end up putting her 5 kittens with Rain.  Both mothers were skin and bones so I bottle fed the kittens every other time for the first week while Rain gained weight and increased her milk production.  After a couple weeks I noticed Rain limping so I took her to the vet.  Xrays showed she had double hip dysplasia and a luxating patella.  This was most likely a birth defect.  So our options are 1) euthanasia, 2) orthopedic surgery to repair hips and correct knee or 3) do nothing until her hips completely go out (we don't know if she is in pain) and then euthanize.  After much consideration and consultation with 3 different vets, we decided on getting the surgery.
