"Hope Fund" kitten No. 11A needs a helping paw for the holidays. My name is Tinsel, and I need a favor this year. I came to the shelter in November when my owners decided they had too many animals. Shelter staff members noticed I was walking funny, so they sent me out for the X-rays, which were covered by donations to the "Hope Fund." Turns out I had a fractured leg. Now I wear a splint that gets changed every week. I'm an incredibly outgoing and affectionate gal. I love to kiss your face and throw my splint around you for great big hugs. I'm very resilient. I never let my injury stop me from playing and loving just like any other kitten can.
