Rescue Cats Come in All Sizes
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
It has been a long time…like NINE whole months…since Mom L was able to work the weekly cat clinic for Community Concern 4 Cats (CC4C). Some of you may recall Mom L had a complete knee replacement in early December and then come May 18 we were struck by a lightning bolt from our property owner telling us to move. Long story short…we are finally in a new rental home and settling in rather well.
Yep! This now my “Savannah Castle”.
The Kid Sage was not at all shy about settling in no matter what changes the humans made…that chair with the custom made cat bed was there for like 12 seconds…
That’s it for the ‘background’ story. Mom L and her best buddy Doc Josie finally were able to work together again with Ms Gemma from CC4C this past week and what a thrill Mom L had helping all the rescue cats.
There were about 10 kittens, rescued from feral situations, and all will be adopted out over time…(REMEMBER: hover over each photo to view captions)
Of course, what that kitten was having done with his hind leg was drawing blood to test for feline immune issues. Doc Josie draws the blood from kittens from inside their hing leg where there is a vein that is available. The adults have their blood drawn from the jugular vein…which is easier given their age. Mom L usually looks away…she is very squeamish…
This precious 15 year old female cat was abandoned by her guardians because they moved to Hawaii and taking her with them was difficult. So they called CC4C asking them to find her a new home. As she is likely now hyperthyroid, it is unlikely that this sweet Senior Female Cat will ever find a new home. She was always an only cat and adored all the attention. She simply is not able at her age to adjust to her foster Mom’s other cat…and so what will be her fate? One little pill, twice a day…and living as a loving only cat…will anyone ever step up to take her?
Likely not…there are so many available healthy kittens…who will want her?
If you are one of my followers, please spread the word that a 15 year old lovely lady is in desperate need of a forever home. And yes, she will need two pills a day…AM and PM…and she is easy to medicate. How can anyone abandon a cat, or any companion animal, who has given them 15+ years of their life and love…*shakes head*…I am so very thankful I have my permanent home…but am dismayed that this sweet lady does not.
And so, such is the reality of working with all ages of animal rescue…whether feline or canine…
Mom L and I are so pleased we can again report on our efforts with free roaming feline rescue efforts.
