This is the story of Sophie


Sophie was a Domestic Longhair Tortoiseshell, approximately 7 months old. She was a stray that was brought in by a family that found her. Sophie was dragging her front left leg. She could not walk on it or use it. The veterinarian took x-rays and suspected there was nerve damage that extended into the shoulder area. Her recommendation was to remove the leg. Sophie is very sociable, playful and affectionate. A family saw her at PETCO the first Saturday in November and a week later, they applied to adopt this kitten with three legs.

Following are emails received from the family who adopted Sophie:


Here are photos from Sophie's adoption on 11/14/09 at the Glen Carbon Petsmart, and one of her playing at her new home with our son Harrison. Sophie is a wonderful cat!!!!!!! We are so thrilled and delighted with her. She is fitting into our household so well. She is so happy, loving, and sweet. She purrs almost constantly!!!

We are so pleased with our adoption experience with Bond County Humane Society. Thank you to everyone there for what you have done for Sophie, and for all the pets you help!

Thank you,
Joyce Jamison & husband Rob Gimenez, and son Harrison
