This sweet kitty may have been thrown from the ninth floor of an apartment building, she has certainly landed on her feet with plenty of loving friends to help her recover from her nightmare fall.
Hei Hudie – meaning Black Butterfly – (because of the black fur on her face and body) fell 32 feet down! She had been abused and injured before the abuser decided to fling her to what could well have been her death but the resilient feline survived the fall.
Now, when she sees a stranger, Black Butterfly will hide her head under her blanket.
Hei Hudie fractured her spine, and after four major surgeries, she was able to w.alk again with wheels to her back legs. She lost the use of her hind legs and requires daily physiotherapy following the fall.
With her wheels attached, she is able to gingerly walk on her two front legs and after a few steps she will stop for a rest then start over again. She also has to use nappies every day.
Her vet said: ‘Black Butterfly was lucky to survive the fall of more than 10 metres, not to mention the stress of four surgeries in only six months.’
‘In my more than 10 years as a vet, I can say she has the strongest will to live of any animal I have seen.’
