Sassy the intrepid! Sassy lived to be over twenty years old, and was ignored for most of those years until I found her, with a leg which had been broken for two weeks. It was so badly shattered that there was no way to set it, so dear Dr. Han put a cast on it and let it fuse as best it could. It took three months before the bones had fused together, disappointing us all, most of all Ms. Sassy. (I didn't change the name she'd been given) There wasn't much left of it when the cast finally came off, and I could see that Sassy was more disappointed than I was (of course!!!) She did regain lots of muscle, and started using it in an almost normal manner. We were surprised when she started to fail shortly after she regained use of the leg...and after all she had been through. Maybe it was all just too much for her. We were so sorry to see this valiant and personable being leave us! She's here with her friend Basha.
