Kitten With Permanent Head Tilt Greets Everyone She Meets While Waiting for a Home


Three months ago, a kitten with an injured leg and a very bad ear infection came to the shelter for a second chance at life.

Lucy was nine months old when she was brought into a shelter in Los Angeles. She would need to have surgery to repair her leg once her Upper Respiratory Infection cleared up. She also had a severe ear infection causing a very dramatic head tilt.

Jenifer Hurt of Wrenn Rescues, took the kitten into her care and brought her to Oaks Veterinary Urgent Care for treatment. “They kept her for a very long time while she healed,” Jenifer said.

“Our vet discovered she had a massive, untreated ear infection. It Likely went into her inner ear damaging it.”

While Lucy was at the vet, she loved getting the attention from everyone she met. “She seems to be more interested in human attention than cat attention. What a lover,” Jenifer added.

The brave kitten immediately wanted snuggles after surgery and was always in good spirits.

A few months later, while she had fully recovered, she was left with a permanent head tilt, which doesn’t bother her at all.
