    Cat found frozen in Canada doing well with three legs

    NewsCat Health NewsMonday 05 March 2012

    A cat found frozen in a driveway in eastern Canada has left a veterinary hospital in Prince Edward Island minus one leg and its tail.
    The cat, now named Trooper, also underwent surgery to repair his pelvis at the Atlantic Veterinary College in Charlottetown, The Guardian of Charlottetown reported. Trooper will be in a foster home in Newfoundland while he continues its recovery.
    Ms Gwen Samms, shelter manager for the Bay St George Society for the Care and Protection of Animals, escorted Trooper to P.E.I. She said the cat is doing well and 'loves playing.'
    'A three-legged animal can have a great quality of life,' Ms Samms told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. 'Once he gets used to three legs there'll be no slowing him down, he'll be just fine.'
