A sweet orange and white cat name Prince Chester was trying to survive in the city with two mangled back paws. Brooklyn rescuers weren’t sure how he got injured, but he limped with several broken toes on his right foot. He must have been in considerable pain and yet remained so sweet with his rescuers.
He had a noble sort of air about him despite his long suffering. So much so, he earned a princely name. You can see it in his picture below.

Getting Prince Chester Back On His Four Paws
Shockingly, Prince Chester had been walking around with broken toes for over a month! By that time, the toes couldn’t be saved, so the best solution was specialized surgery to remove them. The area is lucky to have access to veterinary specialists in Plainview, New York, that “emphasized pet well-being and stress reduction.”
Saving a Life for the Cost of a Pedicure
To top it off, the charismatic cat was suffering from ringworm. He quietly endured a miserable existence. But thanks to rescuers at Greenpoint Cats, Prince Chester’s life was about to turn around.
For Prince Chester to get the health care he needed, it would take multiple kind people to donate. They estimated the cost in a relatable way. But could they get 50 people to donate for this cat?
“How you can help us get Prince Chester back on his (four) feet 🐈: a NYC pedicure costs around $40. We need 50 people to donate that amount to help this Prince have beautiful (and pain-free) paws again! You know what feels better than a pedicure ? Saving a life!”
Prince Chester Gets Back to His Princely Life
Happily, kind people cared and helped Prince Chester so he could get help with those toes! He got the surgery with a skilled veterinary surgeon and recovered in a loving foster home.
“Look, Ma, two toes!” Swipe to see Prince Chester’s new two-toed back foot! For over a month our sweet Prince was walking on broken toes and the best solution was surgery to remove the digits that were causing him a lot of pain. Thanks to @theveterinaryvoice and your donations, were able to get him the surgery he needs for the future he deserves! He is now healing from both surgery and a pesky bout of ringworm and thank goodness for our amazing fosters who are an essential component part of every cat’s rescue journey,” Greenpoint Cats shared
The Fresh Prince of Greenpoint looked lovingly at his royal attendant while wearing his not-so-regal plastic cone.
Later, the regal feline got a flowery plush alternative that’s too cute and befitting a prince. When he’s fully recovered, we’re sure his charms will continue to hold a lucky royal court somewhere in the Brooklyn area.
