MSPCA-Angell in need of home for soon-to-be three-legged cat

The MSPCA-Angell shared these photos of Ice Cream, a three-month-old kitten in need of surgery on his right hind leg.

BOSTON, Mass. (WLNE) — The MSPCA-Angell in Boston said they need a hero adopter for a soon-to-be three-legged cat.

The cat in question is Ice Cream and he’s currently en-route with 15 other kittens from an overcrowded shelter in Louisiana to Northeast Animal Shelter in Boston.

MSPCA-Angell said in a release, Ice Cream is three-months-old and was born with a club foot.

MSPCA Director Mike Keiley said his condition isn’t life threatening, but the surgery itself is fairly routine procedure.

“Resources are always strained — everywhere — but in an overwhelmed shelter such as the one in which he was living — there would not have been an option to address his condition,” Keiley said.

Ice Cream and the other cats are expected to arrive later today at Manchester-Boston regional airport in New Hampshire.

Those who wish to apply to adopt Ice Cream or the other cats in this transport can get more information here.
