We need a palate cleanser after that last column, so here’s picture of Miles as a kitten. It’s blurry, I know, but it’s a favorite of mine. This was snapped the day I brought him home from the shelter where he’d been staying for a few weeks (Can you believe it took that long to adopt him out???). My understanding is that he had been hit by a car, someone found him and then brought him to the shelter where the vet performed minor surgery, amputating a couple of toes from his back foot that had been badly mangled. He has a slight limp these days, but other than that, no other complications from the accident.
And just look at that face! He makes my life so much sweeter; Our family wouldn’t be the same without him.
“Fun” fact: Simone’s tail was amputated when she was two, so both of my kitties are missing appendages.
