Teeny tiny Nelvana of the Northern Lights needed all of her superpowers to survive until she and her siblings were rescued…

Radiographs today confirmed at least 8 broken ribs on her left side, consistent with being stepped on or falling a few weeks before she was rescued. Rads are posted at http://fb.com/TinyTapeworms, if you’d like to see what a five-week-old kitten with multiple rib fractures looks like. ?:(

What Nelvana experienced is just one example of the suffering caused by cat overpopulation. Luckily, there are easy ways to prevent it: spay, neuter, trap-neuter-return (TNR), share Nel’s story, and become an advocate for responsible pet ownership!

There’s unfortunately not much we can do to help Nel’s ribs heal faster. The good news is that there is nothing sharp that could puncture a lung or other organ, and they don’t seem to be painful for her any more. We will continue to monitor the situation very closely, but if all goes as hoped, she should have a full recovery.
