Abused Cat Gets Adopted And Has Successful Surgery To Fix Broken Leg (Viral Thread)

There's absolutely nothing worst than hearing a story about cruel abuse of pets, so when an unfortunate pet like that gets adopted and taken care of, we are all the more grateful. Everyone, say hi to Sweet Potato, a previously abused sweetheart who got adopted by a new veterinarian mom, went through surgery bravely like the hero he is, and got his broken leg fixed. And deservedly went viral on top of it all. 

We want to thank thecomfycat for sharing the story of Sweet Potato and for taking care of the little guy. We hope that he will have an easy and quick recovery after the surgery and that he will be happy with you for a long, long time

viral imgur thread about a cat who was abused by its previous owner getting adopted and going through surgery successfully thumbnail includes two pictures including a cat with a cast and another of a cat with a cast being hugged '"We weren't sure if his leg was too damaged to repair since the band had been on there for weeks. But his surgery went really well! The surgeon was able to repair his severed Achilles tendon, remove the dead tissue, and piece his leg back together." - thecomfycat'

Pawsitively Precious: Artist Draws Comic About His Dog's Knee Surgery

Artist behind @okbluecomics, adorable and wholesome webcomics all draw in blue, recently shared a more personal comic featuring his dog, Korbin.

He shared the story about how Korbin's knee came to be injured on Imgur, "About a year ago my dog, Korbin, was running to the house from the back yard, when he got to the deck he made a strange yelp and started limping. After going to the vet, we were given some medication and sent on our way. We brought it up again but the resolution was trying to keep him from playing with his sibling and lowering activity...didn't help the limp. 

Fast forward to this year during his physical, we were told that he had bad arthritis and he would need TCL surgery (surgery on the knee). He had torn his MCL and CCL (dog equivalent of ACL) and also had bad arthritis. The vet said "If we had gotten to it sooner, we could have prevented the arthritis...?

Luckily, the surgery went great and when he got home we decided to give him a stuff avocado toy he loves to play with and his jammies to snuggle in. He's doing well now and he finally gets his cone off on Thursday! Still a bit to go towards healing, but he's doing great and responding well to the at-home therapy! 

Note: The jammies helped keeping my other 3 dogs from licking his leg, he doesn't wear them all the time, but he will try to get his head into them if they are out.  Picture was right after anesthesia, so he looks kind of loopy"
