Cat with Manx syndrome
This is the story of Lisa, the cat with Manx Syndrome which has the forelegs turned inwards and does not have a tail. The sweet little kitten was born this way and it was difficult for her to walk. To be able to move Lisa has devised a truly unique way to walk. Do you know what it does? Saltella here and there around the house just as if it were a dessert Bunny.
Lisa was found in a stable with her brother. She was full of fleas, she was very hungry and she was completely dehydrated. She was very small and needed someone to take care of her and her inseparable little brother.
Fortunately, a guardian angel has come to save his life and that of his little brother. The volunteer Anna Dickerson-Homan del Michigan made sure they had all the necessary care to survive and move forward.
I had no idea what it would entail, but there wasn’t much time to think: they had to be fed and washed, the rest would come with time.
The little tabby cat he had congenital problems. She was born with crooked legs, she did not have a tail and the body was not what one would expect. The vet confirmed the volunteer’s suspicions: she has Manx syndrome and also suffers from kyphosis and neurological problems, which do not allow her to walk properly.
The cat with Manx Syndrome hops like a rabbit
Lisa is always cheerful and hops around like a rabbit. Explore the world around her – she loves standing by the window watching the birds, chasing the rope and being snuggled.
Anna and her husband Steve planned to give her up for adoption, but in the end they kept her with them. And she is a very happy kitten.
