Simon was brought in to the APL by a Good Samaritan after she noticed he seemed to be in pain and wasn’t walking well.
He was a stray cat and likely hit by a car, although the cause of injury is unknown. He came to us with a fractured pelvis and left femur and a dislocated hip.
Simon required multiple procedures he had pin placed in his leg and had another very complicated orthopedic procedure done. Simon was with us for 7 months while recovering from his injuries (much of that time was spent in a loving foster home).
Despite all of his injuries, he was a very charming cat and he quickly became a favorite of staff and volunteers.
“Somebody needs to be an advocate for the animals – that’s why we all do what we do. On a selfish level I feel great about helping the animals. That’s why we come to work every day.” – APL Staff
Simon was quickly adopted out. Hear his story:
