Walking without Paws
Bet many of you have not seen how a cat walks without two front paws.
No one knows why and how Kenggy is without her front paws. When Kenggy waddles to EJ for a cuddle, EJ had to sit on the floor and not move at all. Usually EJ will grimace when Kenggy's front legs walk on EJ's thighs.
Without paws, Kenggy's front legs are just bone ends covered with skin and fur. Moving with her rump much higher than her shoulders due to those shortened front legs, EJ could feel the pressure of Kenggy's weight on those stumps and it hurts.
If EJ could feel the bone ends, EJ believes Kenggy would feel more and hurt more.
Those spots where Kenggy rests and walk on are devoid of fur. In its place are calloused skin.
Kenggy is such a pretty, loving girl with immense optimism, determination and fighting spirit.
