Hey, it's been awhile, yeah? I have an excuse for being gone a lot these past few weeks, I swear! My family and I rescued two beautiful kittens 3 weeks ago and they both have congenital defects of club foot in both front feet. The kittens, Sebastian and Maxwell, have gotten bigger since we took them in (they used to be TINY and malnourished. They're still pretty small for their age, but they put on a lot of weight and grew like weeds XD).

Here are a few pictures and videos of them:

You can see one of Sebastian's (on the right) clubbed feet in this first picture I took of them. Maxwell's clubbed feet are worse than Sebastian's, his shoulders, especially his left shoulder, are lax and his elbows are hyperextended to where he can't bend them.

Maxwell crawling around on the bed. You can see the severity of his club foot.

Here's a size comparison between Seb, Max and another kitten named Golem. Golem is a larger-than average kitten who is roughly two weeks younger than Max and Seb.

Here's a video of Sebastian drinking milk from a few nights ago. Look at those cute little ears twitch! ♥

 

I'll post more pictures later :)

 

I haven't introduced the kittens and the dogs to each other yet. Anyone have suggestions to try and introduce Max and Seb to the dogs? I tried with Ashe once and Sebastian got a little stressed and scared so I put them away and took her outside.

Thanks, Kate! They're the sweetest things. Mom LOVES taking pictures of the two. Sebastian can stand up on his back feet and play like that. He looks like a little T-rex when he stands up XD

I wouldn't even attempt to show the kittens to the dogs until they are much, much older. 

They are cute though!!
