    I'm so proud. My lil guinea here was having issues with his/her legs this morning. To top it off his leg was caught in the wire. So anyway I overreacted as per usual and tried to make splints...poor baby put up with it. Then I had the best idea ever. I came on here and searched found this great page that showed pics on how to do it with a bandaid. So needless to say I tried it. I took it off this evening to check if there was any progress and there was! He can now stand and walk on his own. Although I am gonna leave the hobbles for another day or so because they were still sticking out a bit. I am so proud!!! Let me know if I did it wrong. I think it looks good!

    [​IMG] here is what it looks like.

    Good job!! When I first glanced at the pic, it looked like the little guy had his drawers down around his ankles.

    Cute kitty. I hope it doesn't have access to the chicks when you're not around.

    Keep us updated on the little one.
