Update: Helping Beetle Heal

A few posts back we highlighted Beetle, a kitten being cared for through the North Shore Animal League’s Help Me Heal Program. Beetle’s page was recently updated with the following good news:

“Beetle is recovering comfortably in a foster care home that the Animal League provided. Foster care homes allow sick or injured animals like Beetle a quiet place in a home setting to recover. Foster care homes also help prepare animals to be pets. They get acclimated to a home-like setting, learn potty-training, manners and other basic pet necessities.

Beetle’s leg is healing very well. The fracture is almost completely healed; however, the flexibility of the joint is still in question. His splint was removed and we are looking to re-evaluate his mobility shortly. We will give you another update after his next checkup.”

We’re so happy to hear Beetle is on the road to recovery and is being prepared for a forever home – congratulations little guy!
