At just three weeks old, kitten Nancy is already proving she is a little survivor.
The female orange tabby kitten was rushed to the Blue Cross UK animal charity’s veterinary hospital in Victoria, central London, after being born with the umbilical cord stuck around her leg.
Sadly, Nancy’s leg was beyond repair and she needed an operation to amputate it.
But post-surgery, the young cat is taking to life on three legs with ease.
During her hospital stay the hospital’s team of vet nurses gave her round the clock care. She is now under the watchful eye of one of the organization’s wonderful foster carers, who is acting as mum and continuing to hand feed her.
Blue Cross and Nancy’s foster caregiver are making sure she gets the 24 hour care she needs to grow strong and healthy.
Blue Cross says that since most ginger kitties are male and Nancy is a female, they think that makes her extra special.
Nancy will be available for adoption when she is old enough to be rehomed.
