Clay gradually went downhill, losing weight, and finally told us it was time to say good-bye on 9/21/17.  Our 3-legged boy is now romping on 4 legs in heaven!!

Biography:         Clay is a great example of several local groups working together to save a life, thanks in large part to the efforts of Lyndee Fuessley of Cedar Rapids.  Lyndee is a vet tech student at Kirkwood Community College who also works at the Cedar Valley Humane Society, and is a friend of Witty Kitties.  When Clay was turned in to CVHS, he was limping pretty badly; x-rays showed multiple old fractures of his right rear leg.  He also tested positive for FIV.  Things were not looking too good for this poor guy.  Lyndee contacted us and asked if we would take Clay if CVHS arranged for the surgery.  We agreed, but then CVHS told her that they just couldn't afford it.  So Lyndee got in touch with her instructors at Kirkwood, and they volunteered to amputate Clay's leg and neuter him as a teaching opportunity for the vet tech students.  Lyndee then brought Clay to Witty Kitties a couple days after surgery, and he's healing nicely.  Clay will need a little time to warm up to us and realize that all his pain and suffering is over.  Right now he will let us pet him for a while, but is very adamant when enough is enough!  He make take some tender loving care, but the rewards could be enormous.  He just needs someone to give him a chance, just like Lyndee did.
