Freddie was a young kitty boy who had the misfortune of being shot by a hunter with a shotgun in February 2014. He was found seriously injured. His front left leg was completely shattered, while his front right leg was broken. Freddie was operated back then, but his body was still chock-full of buckshot. After his surgeries, he spent four months in a cage with a metal rod put into one of his broken legs, while the other leg was splinted. Another two months more were spent recovering once the metal rod was removed. He was kept in foster care and was not allowed to move very much. Freddie was brought to CSF in August 2014, as his foster caretaker wished to give him the chance of a fulfilled life in the company of other cats. Unaccustomed to the curious crowd of kitties, he was somewhat withdrawn and shy in the beginning. Freddie was able to walk, although he limped and his front left leg was kind of stiff. Eventually, Freddie relaxed and started living life to the fullest; at least it seemed so for awhile. We lost Freddie in June 2017 due to a heart disease.
