Radagast the Orange, Right at Home

Radagast the Orange has been with us for three weeks now. It seems like it’s been much longer though. He has made himself right at home, as if he’s always been here.

He gets along so well with the other kitties. Nobody even batted an eye when we brought him home, except for Kylo Ren. Kylo, being the most recent addition to the KCC Gang, had never experienced a new kitty joining the fold. He wasn’t sure about it at first, but as you can see, he has come around…

I have learned that Raddy’s most favorite thing is SNUGGLES! He could snuggle all day long and does snuggle with me all night. He sometimes wakes me up in the middle of the night because he is trying to be lovey. A couple nights ago, I was awoken by Raddy patting my face with his paw. When I looked down at him, he gave me lovey eyes and chin kisses. What a sweet heart <3

As for Raddy’s back leg issues, I’m still trying to figure them out. X-rays have ruled out bone issues, so it seems to be a muscular issue. I’ve been doing some at-home physical therapy with him by stretching his back legs out for him, as suggested by the vet. However, he can already stretch his back legs out on his own.

For some unknown reason, he just doesn’t or can’t stretch them out when he’s walking. Whether it’s because his back-leg muscles aren’t strong enough to support his own weight or he developed this weird walking habit for some reason, I’m not sure. I’m going to be exploring some different options to try to help with this, like perhaps one of those walking slings or harnesses for disabled animals.

In the mean time, Raddy and I will be enjoying some cuddles 🙂

And do we perhaps have another future adventure cat on our hands? We shall see…
