You cant leave a leg thats just "dangling" so it has to be amputated right up at the top, but with his usual "true grit" he sailed through the op, and is now getting around quite well.
He has cost a lot of money at the vets, but when something so tiny and helpless has such determination, you just do whatever it takes.
He is a real character, nothing fazes him - thanks to Sandra and the time she's put in with him.
Little George was brought in by Inspectors in August with his little tabby sister when they were just days old, with cords still attached and no mum-cat to be found.
The person who found them, discovered them around some dustbins where apparently there are always loads of rats.
His leg was a raw wound, chopped off above his ankle - so it's assumed that it was probably a rat who got him.
Sadly, his sister died overnight, as they had not been fed.
They were full of fleas and were dehydrated and filthy.....but George from the start was a little fighter.
It has been a long journey for him, with fosterer Sandra hand-rearing him round the clock to keep him going. He had so many parasites that he needed lots of meds and trips to the vets - but eventually at 9 weeks we felt he was strong enough to have the amputation.
