Poor little scared Inca went through some unnamed horror and ended up with a badly scarred tail, and lost her foot…it was amputated just below the hock. This is the same place that Azzie with her bitten, scarred up ear canal came from! So we pretty much know there was no vet care or care of any sort. They were dumped in boxes at a pet supply place but the owner refused to keep them there, and an employee took them home for a short while to an angry father who told him he had 3 days to find them a home, or they were being thrown out the door.
Inca ended up here finally, and I took her to Dr Munn for a look at her stub since it looked so sore. Well unfortunately, its ulcerating and it’s hurting her, so with the help/kindness of “strangers”
Inca is going to be having a lot more of her leg removed sooner than later…it will clean it up, and she won’t be able to use it and cause it to ulcerate any more. This is my first serious amputation, so I am a bit (read a lot) nervous for her. Inca was a girl who went from screaming when you tried to pick her up, but then turning to lick, to a girl who craves human attention, and doesn’t run from hands anymore, although very occasionally makes an involuntary squeak LOL
Wish us luck tomorrow, she may not need it as much as my nerves will…hehehehe.
Inca’s stubby when she arrived on Dec. 11th
and looking a LOT more sore and weeping. I took her to Dr. Munn the next day.

Balancing on her stub
AND Lilith will be getting examined for her possible keratoacanthoma on her face.
I am hoping the vet is able to remove it easily
