    @ sutra46 - animals are not people and there are limits. You don`t improve or help a breed by keeping the malformed ones. Usually there are also internal problems that can`t be seen initially. Kinder to put them down painlessly, early.

    "You don`t improve or help a breed by keeping the malformed ones."

    Most pet cats are fixed, so there`s no need to worry about "the breed". *shrug* If someone`s willing to pay to fix him up, more power to them.

    Gerry, What of animals that loose a limb or an eye in am accident? You have seen them. They don`t care! Still very happy to LIVE.
    This kitty was taken care of with private money and clearly is loved, even by the goggie. She is full of chips & am sure will LIVE happily.
    It`s unbearably crass how we put animals down & think it`s kind.
    When someone tries to give them a chace at pain free life it warms my heart. Why is your tiny black heart suggesting snuffing it instead?
    Disappointed in you.

    @ sutra46

    What of animals that loose a limb or an eye in am accident? Not the same thing as born defective. Apples & Oranges

    and clearly is loved, even by the goggie I don`t know what "The Googie" is but you`re creeping me out with that.

    It`s unbearably crass how we put animals down & think it`s kind It`s cruel to make them suffer because we`re too selfish to face facts.

    Why is your tiny black heart suggesting snuffing it instead Because they`re delicious on toast.

    I thought the scope of veterinary medicine was "If it isn`t an easy fix, just put it down and be done with it."

    One of the worthwhile things about humanity is kindness. Kindness does not have to be practical, Gerry.

    It`s not "kindness" to make animals suffer by extending an painful existance unnecessarily. Born deffective and couldn`t breath...let it go, it`s a kindness.

    What I want to know, is how is it going to grow. At what point to you decide that the cast is too small? The entire thing could just restrict the growth of it`s ribcage that much farther and cause more problems.

    With the money spent on one defective cat, imagine the
    kindness that could have been done for so many other
    homeless or abused kitties.

    I guess my priorities are just differant from y`alls.

    have to agree with gerry. had a great dane once who had something wrong with her neck. the vet wanted to put rods in her neck and have her spend a YEAR in a body cast. omg. i put her down instead.

    getting back to the cat, he`s adorable. i`m not ordinarily a cat person but he seems to have a very cute personality....

    @Gerry
    Normally I would agree, we have a dog with cancer and instead of expensive treatments that may or may not work we`ve decided to help her live the rest of her life the best we can. But if it`s easy to fix and there`s a great chance of survival why not help the best you can? Idk, pets are more family here than anything, and if I was in that position I`d hope someone would help me.

    Gerry, maybe it`s not so much about saving a cat as it is about practice.

    Maybe the Vet who came up with the procedure was more concerned with seeing if it was even possible to do?

    When it`s your pet, you don`t think, you just do. One of our cats was diagnosed with diabetes about 3 months ago. Now that we`re used to things, it`s really just 90 seconds twice a day to test and medicate, and about $2 a day for his meds, needles, testing supplies, and special food. He`s happy, we`re happy, it`s all good :)

    And honestly, why get butthurt about a veterinarian helping an animal? It`s their job.

    And all those who are saying this is a waste of money, What do you think is going on in this picture anyway? You think this is some iron man setup, because its not. It`s a plastic brace stitched to its chest with blue suturing, and wrapped with gauze to keep it in place and keep the kitten from gnawing on the sutures. The gauze will be replaced often no doubt, but cats grow fast, and this will probably only have to be worn for a month or two, when the brace will have helped the rib-cage grow into a more proper shape. That doesn`t seem like an awful lot of money or effort to help one kitten with an easily treatable condition.

    And if you think it should have just been put to sleep or "thrown in a river"(which is a crime by the way), then you most likely are not a veterinarian, or ever will be one. So don`t worry yourself about what professionals are willing to do with their

    @jessyfish: "Aw yay. I`d much rather help an animal over a human being that can help themselves if they REALLY wanted to."

    My point is that I can think of 1000 better ways to spend ones money, than on a cat.
