"Hoppy" here showed up on the back porch of a Hyde Park Cats person yesterday morning. Smart! And athletic: he had to reach the third landing without the use of his right front leg! His finder, Greg, took him to HPAC right away. He had a broken right upper canine and the leg problem proved to be an abscessed bite (he had a temperature of 104.2). Poor guy must have been fighting other cats on the street. Hoppy is about a year and a half old, a healthy weight, and, hooray, FIV and FeLV negative.
Please write in if you can help, either with monetary donations for our street cats or with foster space (still much needed).
Thanks to Danna for the donation and to Greg for taking Hoppy in!
Also, go on down to Parker's Pets if you're still hankering for a Hyde Park Cats calendar!
