7/12/19 – This little sweetie was found limping out from under a pine tree at an abandoned house. The family contacted us to see if we could help with a vet visit to check his leg. He was seen and it was determined that he has a bone break in his leg that needs surgery. The doctor did neuter Buddy while he was under to get x rays and everyone tells me what a little sweetie he is. There was a concern as to who could do the surgery but we decided to go with Dr. Ehrman. He will have surgery today. Please say a little prayer that surgery is successful. Update to follow.

In my mom’s memory, who loved all animals, especially cats, I introduce you to Groucho, cat who was being cared for in a cat community. He showed up one day with bloody discharge from the nose and we were contacted to see if we could help. Groucho was lethargic, not eating, and having difficulty breathing. After visits to different veterinarians, it was determined that Groucho’s breathing problems may be attributed to dental issues. We then scheduled him for surgery. During surgery, the doctor found the dental issue to be much worse than thought and all but five teeth were removed; he was also treated for an ear yeast infection. His recovery was a little tough but finally after going home, his breathing was much better. Two weeks later, he went for his recheck and Dr. Zalac of Orion Animal Hospital, gave Groucho a clean bill of health. I just heard from his rescuer and Groucho is now doing great. – Diana

“CHANCE: Gooood morning Team Chance!!! Dont you just love a happy ending??? Do you remember our friend Rick who was found at a repo yard during the polar vortexand saved by our friend who works there, Mike? Mike reached out to mom & 4 Paws 1 Heart for help. Mom & Uncle Tom met Mike at the vet thanks to 4p1h and his journey began. Rick had a lot going on. He was a senior….. so scared, had injuries, believed to be deaf, tested positive for felv, needed a dental and acted like he was feral, and didnt like other cats. This was going to be a tough one. Rick went through 3 foster homes, after several snap and 2 specialized IFA tests he tested negative on both!!! In his last foster home his foster mom Ellen really taught him that it’s ok to be touched, petted, loved. He had already recieved his vaccines & neuter, again courtesy of 4p1h. And they were there again for Rick to pay for his dental and the removal and biopsy of a mass in his mouth which turned out to be nothing. As much as his foster parents loved him and wanted to keep him, he fought with their other cats. His foster mom went to work to find Rick another home and found Beth and her cat Selden. Beth fell in love with Rick, and it was decided a trial visit was in order. Both Ellen & Mom were pretty sceptical due to Rick’s past behavior with other cats. But guess what??? Rick loves his new brother Selden!!!! These pics show Rick from now back to the beginning of his journey, can you believe the transformation??? The cost of all Rick’s medical was high, but thankfully 4 Paws 1 Heart remained committed to him, as was every human who he touched on his way to his Forever Home with Beth & Selden!!!
Yep, Rick has been adopted and is loved & happy thanks to a village of awesome humans & 4 Paws 1 Heart.
Happy life now Rick, we love you!!!! ❤
Oh, one more surprise…Rick is not deaf! 😊”
7/6/19 – So thankful for our wonderful vets who will take in animals at a moment’s notice. Patterson Veterinary Hospital, Clinton Township is one of the best. – diana
“Oh….the life of a foster. Clay and I had a quick trip to the vets this morning already. I saw what appeared to be a large blood clot on his tongue while giving him meds. Of course, taking no chances, called 4Paws1Heart and Diana jumped on it for me.
It appears to be a bad bruise from biting himself. And no treatment necessary, but still scared me. At this age, still on the bottle and teething, they get frantic eating, so that must be what happened. All is good, he is out running around with Jax and Opie. On that note, does anyone else do the “kitten shuffle?” They are so tiny, when out and about, I shuffle my feet instead of lifting them while walking for fear of stepping on one of these kids. I feel like a little old lady, lol. – Patricia”
