"3 legs, 2/3 a tail, and fabulous!" -Ellie .
Some new followers have been asking about Ellie's story. 4 weeks ago a woman came across Ellie being attacked by other cats, upon further investigation she discovered that Ellie's front left leg was caught in a trap used to hunt small animals. Ellie was rushed to a veterinarian, but the infection was so bad (they told us it smelled like "decaying flesh") they were unable to save it. During this, Ellie's tail was also damaged. Foster Dad and I began to notice that it seemed painful and at her appointment to get her sutures removed, I asked the veterinarian to take a look. What they discovered was that her tail was essentially "dying" and needed to be removed. .
Ellie suffered at the hands of a human who set a trap (in the middle of a city no less) and then either neglected to check that trap in a timely manner or saw that a cat was trapped and ignored it completely. From my understanding this is being investigated. .
