Zach was brought into the Houston Humane Society (HHS) Animal Wellness Clinic after being hit by a car. The laceration to his back leg had caused a massive infection and the leg had to be amputated. His owners declined treatment and, instead, signed him over to HHS. The veterinary team immediately set to work and Zach quickly learned how to move just as fast on three legs as on four. He now spends his days following in Pirate’s foot-steps, which usually means hourly naps on the copy machine and checking out everyone coming into the HHS Annex.
Pirate was a tiny baby kitten when he was brought to the HHS Animal Wellness Clinic in 2002. His owners said the kitten had been attacked by their dog days earlier. With the kitten’s right eyeball detached, they said they did not want him back. The staff removed his eye and nursed him back to health. Dubbed as Pirate, he is the resident “tough guy,” although he is really just a big old softie. There is barely a trace of his former kittenish self…except when he winks at you.
