Ouch! Poor Baby

Animals With Casts has everything from a wrinkly mutt with his hind legs supported by a homemade PVC pipe wheelchair, to an elephant with an enormous leg cast, to a turtle with two wheels attached to its shell, to a baby kangaroo with its hind legs wrapped up. But please don't go breaking your pet's leg just to get in the lineup.

In Jr High I had a brief obsession with drawing animals with casts, peg legs, and wheels for legs. It's nice to see real life finally catching up with my childhood imagination.

When I was a kid, our terrier tore a ligament in one of his rear legs. The vet operated and put his leg in a wrapped cast with a metal rod surroundiing the leg. This resulted in his having one rear leg that extended straight out, rather than bent. Every time he went around a corner, that cast would bang into the wall. My dad thought that was funny as hell.

Yeah, was about to send this to sis at work and then realized that she'd probably prefer I didn't.

Cute, but a lot of them made me sad. Poor critters.

Animals with casts?

Darling, one never works with children or animals.

"Fuck yeah" doesn't really seem like the right sentiment for animals with casts.

Cute pics, but a tacky and tasteless way of presenting them and monetizing them.

As presented by Fuck Yeah™, the purveyors of such fine websites as Fuck Yeah™ Rachel Maddow, Fuck Yeah™ Skinny Bitch, Fuck Yeah™ Puppies.

Should I be hating Fuck Yeah, or just Tumblr in general? Need clarification please.

I woke up this morning before my cat, which is a little unusual. That is to say, the first thing I did today was beat my cat up.

I don't think anybody's making money off of Tumblr.

You never see fish with casts.

Seems like you could remedy that one, jabberjaw...

But there are a lot of aquatic animals with prosthetic fins.
