Twins looking for a friendly library
– You could call Emily Dickinson and Jane
Austin living bookends. That's because these two
felines, named after famous authors, had their opposite
rear leg amputated. These siblings – currently residing
at the Wisconsin Humane Society – are hoping that
someone will want to complete their book collection
by adopting them together.
Emily and Jane
were surrendered to the Wisconsin Humane Society.
Heartbroken by the decision to surrender the siblings,
the guardian could no longer live with these kittens
due to excessive allergies.
Both Emily and
Jane were born with a congenital deformality in
one rear leg that required them to excessively limp.
Based on the meek expressions on each sister's face,
one could only imagine how much pain they endured.
Thanks to the
caring team at WHS, Emily and Jane were on their
way to a better life. After a careful exam by WHS
veterinarians, it was determined both felines would
need to have their deformed leg amputated. Just
like all the animals at WHS, they also received
plenty of love and affection from the WHS staff.
twins will soon be completely healed and ready to
take on the world with three legs standing. For
more information about adopting Emily and Jane,
please call the Wisconsin Humane Society at (414)
431-6104. Additional information
about the Wisconsin Humane Society can be obtained
by visiting www.wihumane.org.
These little twins will be available
for photos and filming at the Wisconsin Humane Society
until end-of-day June 2, and a WHS representative
will be available for interviews. To schedule
a time to talk with a rep, please call Michelle
Pintar at (414) 431-6104.
