My name is Polly, and I’m an adorable brown tabby cat. I was brought to a Manhattan, New York shelter on June 3, 2015 in terrible shape. I was just 9 months old, and a meanie threw me from the roof of a 6-story building. When I hit the concrete, the impact shattered my back leg, my front paw suffered tissue damage, my mouth had abrasions, and my insides were bruised… I was hurt so bad I couldn’t move.
The staff at the shelter said I gave headbutts and purred when they pet me – even with my injuries – but instead of fixing me up, I was put on the kill list. Just when I thought my time was up, Justin, Fire Survivor swooped in and rescued me! He saved my life! https://www.facebook.com/justinfiresurvivor
On June 9, 2015, I became part of #thekittykrusade.
Jman took care of me, and on June 16, I had surgery to repair my left hind limb. I had pins and rods and plates put in to put my leg back together. After around the clock foster/nursing care, physical therapy, and lots of love, 45 days after I was thrown from the roof, I’m walking again! On July 18, 2015, I joined Daffy Duck (also a Justin rescue) at my forever home! Cleared for takeoff!
I now live in Virginia with my new human mom, Shelly, and my new fur siblings – Daffy Duck, my roommate when Justin rescued me, Merlin, a 13 year old male ragdoll kitty, and Ziva, a 2 year old female dilute calico kitty. You’ll see them around here, too!
THANK YOU to everyone who helped me to feel good again:
