Coco Chanel and her little ones

Coco was a local stray, who chose the house of one of our members to be her home when she was ready to birth her kittens. When they were born, she was not quite sure what to do, and the three little ones' umbilical cords got tangled up in her plush tail fur. The foot of one was entrapped in the mess, with all circulation cut off. The bundle of new borns were brought in immediately, and untangled, but it was too late to save the little blue foot. A quick amputation, and the little boy was back on his mama to nurse, never seeming to know that he was missing anything at all.
