Bambi is at risk for medical reasons. Bambi has a pelvic fracture, our veterinary team believe she will require cage rest for recovery but we strongly recommend that a specialist consultation confirm this following placement. Due to her condition, we have not been able to formally assess Bambi's behavior, but have had no concerns whilst she has been at the care center.
