But he’s resilient, and able to remain affectionate, even when he’s uncomfortable. “Another cute thing I love about Nubbies is the time we spend with him after he gets his ‘dips’ [medical baths],” Rivers said. “We have to dip his nubbies in a small basin and then let him air dry before putting him back in his crate, which means we have hold him for about 5-10 minutes. Even while he has his paws in the dip, or when they're soaking wet, which I'm sure can't be very pleasant, we still hear him purring like a machine.”
“Right now, his front right leg is wrapped in a bandage and his hind right leg has been amputated, so he is learning how to walk on three legs,” Rivers said. “Once we are able to remove the bandage, we'll be able to see how he adjusts.”
If Nubbies can’t walk or function properly with three legs, she said, The Philly Kitty would consider having him fit for a prosthetic leg.
