I just began noticing Twiggy has been using her bad leg more and more to walk. If she wants to get somewhere in hurry, she still tucks it up, but I see her trying to use it more. I am so glad I took a wait and see attitude rather than have it removed. She will never be graceful, but I am happy she is getting better at getting around.

Twiggy was run over by her former owners and ended up with two broken hips and a fractured pelvis. They never took her to a vet. She was picked up by the animal control 2 months after it happened and I adopted her from them. She's a little bitty thing with a great will to live. Her right hip has formed a new hip socket by her tail and the left leg was contracted and turned inward. She now is starting to use that leg, which is a good sign.
