Phoebie’s early days were far from ideal.
Born with front legs askew, she faced rejection from her family due to her condition. At just 5 weeks old, she found herself separated from her mother and in need of a new home.
Thankfully, kindness intervened.
Sophie, touched by Phoebie’s plight online, stepped up to offer assistance, fearing the worst for the fluffy kitten.
Taking Phoebie under her wing, Sophie reached out to Chatons Orphelins Montreal (COM) for support.
Finally, Phoebie found herself in caring hands.
Arriving at the shelter, Phoebie’s struggle was evident. Crawling on her elbows, weighing only a pound, she had endured more than her fair share of hardship at such a tender age.
Concerned for her well-being, the shelter staff worried about the potential for sores and pain as she grew.
A trip to the vet revealed that, aside from her crooked legs, Phoebie was a resilient and healthy kitten.
Determined to give her a chance at a normal life, they opted for surgery to correct her legs, despite the discomfort it would entail.
Remarkably, Phoebie remained patient and stoic throughout her ordeal, focused on getting better.
Post-surgery, with her front legs bandaged, Phoebie wasted no time in attempting to walk on all fours.
Her progress was astounding.
With each passing day, she grew stronger, playing, running, and jumping with newfound freedom.
After five weeks of dedicated care, Phoebie’s legs were nearly straight, thanks to the tireless efforts of the shelter staff and her foster mom, Jess.
Her health improved exponentially, and at three months old, she was already spoken for by an eager adopter.
Yet, Phoebie remained with Jess for an additional two months, her diva personality emerging as she reveled in attention and companionship.
With her newfound confidence and straight legs, Phoebie was unrecognizable from the kitten she once was.
At five months old, she embarked on the next chapter of her life, joining a loving family who embraced her fully.
Thanks to the unwavering support of COM and her devoted foster mom, Phoebie defied the odds and found a forever home where she was cherished for who she was.
Her journey serves as a testament to resilience and the power of compassion in transforming lives.
