Hello My Name is Bobbitt! I was a stray with no family, no tail and a serious medical condition. A nice lady who was feeding me called Standish Humane because she thought I got hit by a car. I was limping, in pain and my leg looked funny. At the vet they did x-rays but I did not have broken bones. I have 2 luxating patellas which means my knees are painful and go out of joint. On a scale of 1-4, 4 being the worst, I have a 3 in one leg and a 4 in the other. That is the reason that my back end is atrophied from lack of use. I tend to balance on my front paws to compensate. I went for a second opinion today with an orthopedic surgeon and they recommend getting surgery to repair my leg that is a 3 and after it heals they unfortunately think amputation of the leg that is a 4 is best. It's important that we act fast to make sure my leg that is a 3 does not become a 4. The total cost is estimated at $4,000 - $5,000. Please donate whatever you can to my surgery so I can live a long, happy, pain free life with a forever family that I long for. Sincerely, Bobbitt
