Baby Buttons gets adopted!

by Hilary Bentley • Posted in: Where are they now

buttonsHi Everyone! Baby Buttons here for my last post. I’ve had a couple of milestones since I last wrote. First, I turned one-year old! My mom and dad had a birthday party for me and everything! Second, and most exciting, I got officially adopted!!! My foster mom and dad officially adopted me.

I spend my days chasing my feline brothers around, climbing up the cat tree, cuddling with my mom, chirping at the birds outside on the bird feeder, snuggling with my older canine brother, and just being a kitten. I still have a few side effects from my injuries; I have to wear a diaper because I can’t control my bladder, and I can’t walk (but I sure can scoot around in my cart).

I want to thank everyone for all their support and well wishes. Even though my body didn’t completely heal after my accident, all the donations were used towards my medication, physical therapy and cart. I will permanently be on medication to help my bladder issues. I use my cart everyday- without it, pressure would constantly be on my spine creating future problems for me.

We spent months in physical therapy and although we didn’t get the outcome everyone was hoping for, we at least know that we gave it a try. We don’t have to wonder, “maybe if we would have had the funds for physical therapy, maybe I could walk.”

I want everyone to know that I’m a very happy kitten! In fact, as I’m dictating this to my mom (of course, I’m not typing, cats don’t have any thumbs!) I’m hunting my crinkly ball and chasing my catnip mouse. Thank you everyone and APA! for giving me a second chance!!!
