Sweet Baby Yoda

In Memory: Baby Yoda 6/15/18-9/13/18
by Yoda's foster mom, Jillian

Baby Yoda was born at the Walker County Shelter on June 15, 2018. Shortly after birth, the shelter director noticed his right arm and left leg looked odd. His arm was restricted and his leg turned outward. His tail was also very hard and had no "give." We took him to the vet as soon as we got him and the vet said that with some physical therapy, there shouldn't be any worry about Yoda's arm and leg. She did say that his tail may have to be amputated.

Over time, with physical therapy, Yoda was able to run and play just like any normal kitten. But I noticed he wasn't gaining weight as much as he should have been. I also noticed an odd smell on his breath. The vet said he most likely had a kidney issue. Also, due to his size at 9 weeks, there were probably other birth defects.

An antibiotic helped Yoda and he advanced from formula to regular food. In the pictures on this page, he weighs just over a pound. 

But Baby Yoda just wasn't strong enough to make it. He had a short but happy life full of love and fun. We will always miss this precious baby. 

Yoda was such a blessing and I was so honored to be his foster mom. Here are a few more pictures of this special kitten.
