(Enter stage right) Mr. Orange.
I only knew of the situation after it had occurred but Mr. Orange quickly grew to be an important presence in the hospital. Mr. Orange came in having not urinated in several days, hadn’t walked either and had a temperature of 94 degrees. The owners who were short on cash wanted to euthanize Mr. Orange, but Doctor K thought otherwise. She had them surrender Mr. Orange to the clinic and they walked away from the situation.
After receiving custody of Mr. Orange, Doctor K was quick to run diagnostics; an X-ray revealed an enlarged bladder and the balls of the both femurs were broken. A urinary catheter was immediately placed to drain the bladder of its bloody contents and antibiotics were administered. To solve Mr. Orange’s broken femurs Doctor K removed the balls of the femurs.
To be honest, when Doctor K showed me the balls of Mr. Orange’s femur I doubted the cat would ever be able to fully function as a normal cat. Today Mr. Orange is the spoiled prince of the clinic who walks, runs, climbs, jumps, plays and cuddles like any normal loving cat. It is amazing because not only is he friendly to people but to cats and dogs as well. He is the most perfect hospital cat. I only wish his original owners had been able to appreciate and treat him better.
