FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - The little orange-and-white ball of fluff is a fighter.
Any kitten that survives a tumble through the deadly maw of a wood chipper would have to be.
His meow would almost be pitiable, if he weren't so full of energy and spunk just two weeks after his rescuer and veterinarian debated whether his injuries were so severe that he couldn't be saved.
"Chipper's" head is tilted to the right, the result of a fracture to the neck that apparently didn't damage the spinal cord nerves. Both of the miracle kitten's front legs were badly mangled and broken, but he gets around, if a little awkwardly. His right eye now appears to be functioning, even if it is damaged.
