We were visiting with some church members last weekend and my boys were playing with a litter of kittens. Since I have a terrible time keeping barn cats here we were told we could have the whole litter when they were ready. When we went to get "the litter" Saturday it turned out they had given away 3 of the 5 and the only ones left were 1 male and 1 female with bent front legs. Needless to say that I was disappointed but we brought them home anyhow and the boys love their kittens (they made them a nice home in the kidding barn since there are no kids coming for a while). Anyhow it is breaking my heart to watch the little female walking around on her elbows. I read that they can be splinted to straighten out and am wondering if any of you have done this and what the results were. They are 6 weeks old and cute as a button but also I can't spend a fortune on taking free barn cats to the vet to have it done.
