This little bundle of fur is Alaska! He’s an energetic 2-month-old kitten who unfortunately was accidentally stepped on and suffered a broken femur, not an uncommon mishap in small kittens and puppies.
Alaska’s dad had lost his job and was living on unemployment benefits at the time of the accident. He couldn’t afford the cost of Alaska’s emergency surgery to repair the fracture.
With the help of a FACE grant, Alaska got the surgery he needed and his leg is on the mend. Alaska is eager to resume his career as a playful kitten!
