Forrest—A very special kitten finds love at CANDi's clinic Featured

Forrest is a very special kitty that came into CANDi’s Cancun clinic this December. His diagnosis is complicated — he has no femoral heads, and no knee caps due to congenital defects. It’s like his legs are completely backwards. With help from the Humane Society of Cozumel Island, Forrest was able to receive X-rays, which proved that there is no surgery to help him.

Lucky for Forrest, Aynsley Sim, one of CANDi’s volunteers fell in love with him while working in the cat recovery room, and she decided to adopt him. Forrest is already in her loving home in Calgary, Canada!

Before flying to Canada, Forrest was fostered and treated for parasites in Cozumel. We are hopeful that as he grows and gains weight he will still be able to walk on his own.

There are so many people to thank for making this rescue possible: Tracey Buyce Photography for the amazing photos; all of the vets, Canadian and Mexican that have worked to make him ready for travel to his great new home, with a special shout-out to Joanne Fagnou for carefully reviewing his X-rays; the fosters in Cozumel, Erika Flores for transport, and Carley who is escorting him home!
