for 3 tiny kittens with swimmer syndrome born near the port in Ybor City, Florida, their lives began with quite a feat to overcome. And they would not have survived if not for their dedicated foster family!

"Splayed leg syndrome is also referred to as Swimmer Syndrome or ‘frog legged kitten’!
Its causes are not fully understood but it is thought to be a mechanical issue.
The ligaments in the joints of the legs do not tighten up properly and the result is that the kitten is left with floppy leg joints."

Thanx Jeri
