A cat centered veterinary practice in Dearborn, MI is helping a disabled cat to walk again.

Star’s neglectful family did not get her the treatment she needed for an injury, leaving her with serious mobility issues in her hind legs. Because the injury was left untreated, Star was crippled and unable to walk, pulling herself around with her front legs, when she was rescued by The Country Cat & City Kitty after bring sent off to be euthanized.

St. Julian’s Cat Care is helping Star, with the intent to get her walking again and find her a good home.

St. Julian’s vet, Dr. Shera Dickie plans on a combination of surgery and a wheeled cart to help Star to walk, and says that Star is a very sweet cat who has had a rough start in life.

Local TV station WJBK Channel 10 did a news feature on Star to bring her story to the public and help publicise an appeal from her vets for donations from local residents toward the estimated $5,000 Star’s rescuers will spend on her care.
