Marley, Kiwi, and Mango – Found on the Streets

6/5/20 – A little while ago I believe I showed you Marley, Kiwi, and Mango. They were vaccinated but Mango just the other day started vomiting almost without stopping and had severe diarrhea. He was taken to the vet and it was determined that he had coccidia. So, of course, he was treated. But then, because his little buddies have been playing with him, the other two are going in for treatment. If you can’t tell by our posts, we are definitely being overwhelmed with kittens. These cuties are 7 weeks old and we will also be paying for them to be spayed/neutered. If you are interested in adopting, contact Beckie at: bborse79@gmail.com – diana

Zena – Found with Bullets in Her Spine

6/3/20 – Meet ‘super sweet’, 2 year old Zena. A couple of days ago we were asked if we could help with a partially paralyzed cat. She had no feeling in her tail and her back toes. People in the neighborhood were familiar with her and said she had been dragging her back feet for at least a year but no one stepped up to help. Her poor little paws were raw from dragging them for so long. Thankfully, Keri found her and reached out to us. She was taken to a vet yesterday where x-rays were done and it turns out that this poor baby has a bullet in her spine. It is lodged where the nerves are for her colon and bladder areas as well as her toes. The doctor said that she is not in pain and the staff fell in love with her. Zena was snap tested (negative), vaccinated, was given a cortisone injection, and treated for fleas and ticks. The doctor also said that she may regain feeling but also suggested that a neurological surgeon be consulted to determine if the bullet can be removed. In the mean time, Zena is getting lots of love, attention, and rest with Keri’s mom and she will again be seen by the vet in a few weeks. We will continue to follow up on this sweetie and at least pay for the specialist visit. We will then take it from there. These situations continue to break my heart knowing there are so many more animals out there being abused and tortured. Thank you to everyone who supports our mission and who never turn their backs on an animal in need. – diana

Petunia and Bear – Found on the Streets

6/1/20 – Welcome to June and the unending number of kittens born during the shutdown of veterinary hospitals for general care. These little beauties are two of 13 taken in recently by our friend Patricia B. Petunia is very little for her age and has not been acting like the typical playful kitten. Her rescuer is a little worried and asked if we would cover an exam to make sure it is not a physical issue. Bear, on the other hand, is doing well and he will just be vetted when Petunia is taken in to one of our favorite vets. Of course, we will be taking care of Petunia’s vetting which always include spay/neuter, vaccines, and testing. Anyone interested in these kittens (although not ready just yet) should contact Patricia at: pattib7355@aol.com – Diana

Toby – Severely Injured – RIP

5/29/20 – RIP Toby. This little 10-12 week old kitty was trapped under the car hood and rescued. He was very scared — you can imagine — and taken yesterday to an independent rescuer who we like to help. She thought he may have had pneumonia because he was having problems breathing. So, it was planned to get him into the vet today. But this morning he started having seizures and couldn’t stand. He was taken to the vet who did blood work and found his white blood cell count was very dangerous and his actions seemed to indicate a neurological issue. The doctor thought he might have ingested some type of poison. He was put on fluids and continued to be treated in the hospital but just a few minutes ago we were informed that Toby passed away. I know there is so much to pray about these days, but please continue to pray for these poor animals. Unfortunately, there are so very many on the streets needing us and so many pregnant cats who couldn’t be fixed over the past 10 weeks. Please keep Tracy in your prayers as she has had many sleepless nights with a number of kittens who she has rescued in the past few weeks. Last week, she was in the vet parking lot for almost 6 hours while she waited for another rescue cat, whom we were helping, to be seen. May God Bless the Rescuers, the Vet Staffs, and our many generous donors who make it possible for us to make a difference. – diana

Mama Cat Found With Four, One-Week Old Kittens – Two are in Furever Homes

mama 5:27:20 with 4 1 week old kittens kitten 1 kitten 2 5:27:205/27/20 – This little family will be going in to get ‘the works’. The mama was found with her 1 week old kittens. They are now 5 weeks old and two are already spoken for. But, before everyone gets their furever homes, they will be spayed/neutered/vaccinated, and mama will be tested for FIV/FeLV — complements for 4p1h. Unfortunately, we all knew this would happen when our great veterinarians were unable to spay/neuter and were restricted to emergency care only. Thank you so very much for all of your support. – diana

Oreo, Willy, Smoke, and Tom – Found on the Streets and now in Furever Homes

5/26/20 – More cats (Oreo, Willy, Smoke, and Tom) we were able to get neutered/spayed, vaccinated and treated medically, this past winter before the pandemic closed all veterinary hospitals down. Fortunately, these little ones are all safe and in homes. So many kittens are being born now because of the shutdown and mamas and babies will soon be old enough to get neutered/spayed. But, unfortunately, because of the shut down, the hospitals are way behind in their work. Many thanks for all of your continued support. – diana

Punkin, Tigs, Bernie, Ken, and Grayling – Found on the Streets

As I’ve said a number of times, in my effort to not overwhelm you with our stories, I’ve become woefully behind in at least sharing the photos of the many cats we’ve helped since last Fall/Winter. Here are a few more of them. And, once again, there would be no need for 4 Paws 1 Heart if we didn’t have so many amazing people who never turn their backs on an animal in need. So again, God bless the rescuer, the foster, the adopter, the veterinary staffs, and our supporters. Here are Punkin, Tigs, Bernie, Ken, and Grayling. All of them were found on the streets. Some just needed the usual spay/neuter/vaccines/deworming/flea-mite treatment, others needed treatment for wounds. -diana
