Feisty three-month-old kitten Fury is brought to Fitzpatricks with a suspected tibia injury, sustained during boisterous playtime at home.

The Problem

All the team, including Noel, fall in love with Fury, whose fractured growth plate, unfortunately, means that future growth of the limb may be affected.


Although the simple fracture is very straightforward to fix, surgery entails drilling into a tiny piece of bone that crumbles easily – there is no margin for error – and post-op care means cage rest for Fury so that everything holds in place. It’s a challenging time for all the family – and when they return for re-checks Noel discovers that this charming cat is about to confound even his expectation.
