This was taken before her injuries.
When she was just ten months old she was hit by a car and sustained three broken legs. After many hours of surgery, ten weeks of cage rest, physical therapy, hydrotherapy, and a ton of prayers our sweet cat was eventually able to walk again. It took another 4-6 months before she was able to run, climb and jump. All of this was accomplished through the daily prayers of our young children, my husband's willingness to spend a whole LOT of money on a cat, my dedication to doing the physical therapy & hydrotherapy (it's true that cats really don't like water) and the dedication of the veterinarians at Bit & Spur Animal Hospital. She not only survived, but has surpassed the veterinarians' highest hopes. Though Paisley is left with a limp due to her right front leg being shorter than her other legs, it doesn't seem to bother her and it certainly doesn't keep her from jumping on dressers, or climbing around behind the entertainment center.

|Her favorite way to sleep post-surgery. I think she became so|
accustomed to sleeping in odd positions due to the external
pins on her front leg that she just prefers this now.

This cat truly sleeps where she wants, when she wants. She was sound asleep in the pictures above until I disturbed her with the camera flash. Far left she's in the bathroom sink, middle she's on top of my dresser and far right she's laying in a basket of clean laundry (note the paw lifted up to block the camera flash from her eyes).
