Thread: Meet Apollo - Cutie Warning :)!

    Meet Apollo - Cutie Warning :)!

    Hi All-

    On Friday, Aug. 7th I went to pick up this little guy. A lady found him on her driveway and she almost ran him over because he's so little. She mentioned his paw was bent and I asked her if she took him to the vets to get him checked out and she told me she really couldn't afford to take him to the vets and she was offerering him for free.

    I told her I would take him and get him vet checked and find him a great home.

    So on Friday after work I went to pick up this little guy and boy is he a cutie. We are calling him Apollo and he was at the vets on Saturday and tested negative for FIV/FELV. The vet said she isn't able to x-ray him just yet because of his size and he's done growing yet.

    The vet said it appears his wrist is bent but she was able to put it straight but it went right back to being bent. It doesn't seem to bother him so we are just watching it for right now.

    Apollo also has a bacteria infection which he's on antibotics for at the moment.

    I think he has another day of it if that. He goes back to the vets on Wed. Aug. 19th to get his first set of vaccines and they are going to check out his paw again.

    I'm going to attach several photos because he's just too cute. My husband and I already have 9 cats so it looks like we will just have to foster this cutie for now. I'd love to keep him since I'm in love with him already but 10 cats seems like a bit too much especially in our tiny place right now.

    Anyway, here is the what you have been waiting for pictures of Apollo Enjoy!

    OMG, he is adorable!!
    I wish I would have gotten a picture of my sisters cat while I was there. She has an orangie who has a deformed right front leg JUST like Apollo's! This is exactly what Little Man looked like when my sister saved him from being PTS at the vet she worked at when she first moved to Oregon. I'll have to see if my sis can send me any pics of her guy so you can see how similar they are.

    Enjoy your time with this little cutie. It will be so hard to let him go when you find him a home.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I'd have to say you are correct. My sisters cat gets around just fine. He runs and plays just like any other kitty.

    Don't worry Apollo gets around just fine.

    The only I noticed last night is his elbow where he does the most running is getting pretty red. He's in the bathroom during the day time but when we get home we usually let him out to play with the other cats.

    He's such a love bug.

    Yes, he looks like a real sweetie. So strange about the paw issue. What do your other cats think of him?

    Oh goodness, he's a cutie alright. That paw appears to be a birth defect or, as someone mentioned, it may have turned that way in the womb. It almost looks as though it grew larger than the rest of his leg. Whatever the case, he's adorable! Lucky little guy that you took him in. Bless you.
    Blessings,
    Mary

    What an adorable little fellow!

    He reminds me some of my little orange girl Sparkler (see below), whose BACK legs are both cockeyed. She zips around just fine, though.

    If Apollo's elbow is getting red, he might be wearing his fur down so his skin develops a sore, which could lead to infection. (Could that be the source of the bacteria infection he has now?) You might want to ask your vet about it before she sees him again next week.

    I had to keep an eye on Sparkler's legs for a while in case that might happen where she walks on the whole lower halves of her back legs. When I adopted her, her foster mom even gave me baby socks for her legs! (Which I tried on her and she got right off, of course.) Fortunately, that hasn't happened.

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
