Goodbye Pepper

A few months ago, our cat had kittens with deformaties. One of them died and Pepper was adopted by one of our inside cats. Her mother likes to stay outside and got pregnant a couple of times before we were finally able to keep her in long enough to get spayed. Pepper's back legs were about two inches long. She mainly scooted around. One day she started walking with her two back legs straight up in the air. Looked crazy, then we noticed her back leg was a bloody mess from her using it. We took her to the vet and they recommended that she be put down. I wanted to do that the minute we found her, but my husband talked me out of it. My kids are devastated. She was such a cool kitten and our other cat loved her like her own. I know it was the right thing to do, because even though she could walk on two feet, when she got bigger it would be hard on her front legs. I feel so sad right now.
