A limping stray cat once crossed my path, not black but a super-friendly yellow (former) tomcat. I took him to the vet to see what caused that limp—he had a severely broken femur. When the doc asked what I wanted them to do, I said “fix it”, even though I didn’t have much money (it took me 2 years to pay them off, fortunately they didn’t charge interest). Once healed, I took him out to the ranch where I kept my horse and where he lived out his life in comfort and companionship with my horse and all the other critters there.
