A little kitten in Perth, Australia, was sent to Warwick Veterinary Hospital for treatment. The kitten weighed barely 172 grams and seemed to be a few weeks old.
As one of his legs was affected, the medical staff did their best. Despite the odds, Dr. Fiona South and her veterinary team did everything they could to help the little girl.
Kate Hayes, a veterinary nurse, explained to Love Meow:
“As strong as he was, we weren’t going down without a fight. We had no choice but to amputate his leg as soon as possible since it was highly infected and had begun to die, putting him at danger of sepsis.

For her age and condition, the small girl’s procedure was very hazardous. The veterinarians didn’t sure if he’d be able to overcome it, but they were prepared to give it their all.
Kate has this to say:
“I honestly didn’t believe she’d make it through the operation since she was so young and so little, but she did.”
The tabby cat was a warrior, and her will to survive was her driving force. The kitten was the hospital’s youngest patient for such a complex operation and orthopedic procedure, and they were pleased with their results.
Kate, overjoyed, stated:
This tiny kitten is a force to be reckoned with. Your boldness has truly impressed us. Peggy, often known as ‘Peg Leg,’ is her name. He is now gaining weight and becoming stronger by the day.
Kate was highly interested in Peggy’s recuperation and volunteered for the feline to continue her journey in a safe environment.
Moon, the woman’s dog, greeted the kitten enthusiastically right away. He has always been interested in kittens and contributes to their care; as a result, after sniffing her and sensing that she required her attention, he laid down next to her; he is extremely affectionate.
Moon also assisted her mother in caring for another three-legged kitty named Phoenix three years ago, and she is confident that she will assist Peggy as well.
Kate continued, saying:
“When an animal is sad or ill, Moon stays at his side and weeps with him. He has a wonderful personality.
Moon rushes to Peggy’s side as soon as he hears her weeping to make sure she’s okay. The lovely dog likes assisting his mother with the children she brings home and strives to assist and care for them at all times.
The 3-legged kitten has gotten all of Moon’s affection and is beginning to heal, she knows he cares for her and expresses her gratitude with beautiful rubs of her front paws and snuggling as close to the dog as possible.
Moon enjoys taking care of her little sister, giving her gentle lick showers and insisting on remaining by her side the entire while.
Fortunately, Peggy is on the mend and receiving a lot of affection from this fuzzy gentleman who stands by her side as a comfort. Moon sincerely want to be available to her at all times.
