Kittens -2017 – 6 Kittens Found Very Ill in a Backyard

7/25/17 UPDATE: The 4 orange babies were seen at Patterson this morning. They were given eye ointment and were treated for fleas and worms. The two who are most ill may need to have an eye removed. They will be seen again within the next two weeks. Paws crossed and prayers that won’t have to happen. – diana

7/24/17 – Please pray for these babies. I was contacted yesterday about 6 kittens rescued from a person’s backyard. All of them were sick, a couple of them more than the others. The rescuer not only needed medical assistance but needed help with placement because her family was leaving for vacation today. With much wrangling and phone calls to as many friends as I could think of, a plan was made. The rescuer had contacted Wilson’s Veterinary who said they would hold the kittens BUT if we could not find a foster, all of the kittens would be picked up the next day (today) by animal control. In the condition they were in, there was a good chance they would be euthanized if that happened. I agreed to pay for the kittens to be examined — at emergency prices — and to be treated. My dilemma was to pay for the medical which would be between $800 and $1,000 only to have them killed the next day or to take a chance that we could find someone to take these poor, sick babies in. God was with us because our good friend Jo Addington agreed to take in all 6 and our very good friend, Debra Berolatti agreed to pick them up this morning and take them to Jo’s. Once picked up from the vet, Debra and Chance’s mom, Denise, also spent time at Jo’s house cleaning their eyes and making sure they were comfortable. The photos here are of them before they had been cleaned up. Tomorrow, four of them will be taken to Patterson Veterinary Hospital and the two grey babies will be cared for by our friend Patricia Brown and her wonderful daughter, Bree. I know I’ve said this before, but rescue is not a singular effort; it truly takes a village. Also, please note that as fast as the donations come in, the donations go out. If anyone has any money to spare, please help with the medical care for these babies. There are also two more (one caught and one more to go) being fostered elsewhere. Donations can be made on this page or by mail at P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI . 48080. ~ diana20294286_1591278780904414_4494869149216582034_n 20264647_1591278724237753_5887116831374005838_n20294520_1591278874237738_2062837777665065457_n 20294122_1591279157571043_8106154119297974569_n 20429940_1591279057571053_3907870648505180464_n 20294352_1591279187571040_6504972516995498548_n

Chance – Speaks Up for Community Cats

7/20/17 – Working together to make a difference. LOVE!! – diana

“Good morning Star & Twinsie!!! Are you enjoying your breakfast? We love you
Good morning Team Chance! Our beautiful ferals Star & Twinsie are having their yummy breakfast, then they’ll get up on the chairs for a morning nap knowing they are safe & loved. Becuse of 4 Paws 1 Heart they were spayed and had their shots 5yrs ago and theyve lived in our yard ever since never having any babies. 5yrs ago there were more then 30 cats & litters upon litters being born on our street. Mom started trapping the kittys and with the help of 4p1h all were spayed & neutered, all of the kittens were placed in loving homes and most of the adults too! But, if that original mama cat had been spayed in the first place all those kittys would not have been born outside. Sooo spay, neuter, tnr and be kind! No kitty chooses to live a life outside, humans made that choice. Have a SuperHero kind of Thursday everybody!” ~ Chancestar and twinsie 7:20:17

Sweet Boy – We Couldn’t Save You

7/20/17 – RIP Sweet Boy. Our good friend, Charlotte Y., who is actively involved in TNR (trap/neuter/return) had been trying to trap this very sick boy for quite a while. She was finally able to do that last week where it was found that he had a large salivatory abscess on his chin. Not wanting to bother me during the time of my mom’s services, she paid for the vet visit where the abscess was lanced and treated but the vet warned that the abscess could return. Because this boy was very feral, he was returned to the wild after being treated. Within one week, he was again seen with another abscess. There was much concern that he would not fall for the trap again but Tuesday night he went in and was taken to emergency. Unfortunately, it was determined that humane euthanasia was the best option for this poor soul. He is no longer in pain and never has to worry about food or shelter again. ~ diana

Frankie Peanut – Found With a Broken Femur

7/20/17 – In the world of saving animals it takes many players, all with different roles and skills. I am thankful that over the past (almost) seven years, we have made some great friends in veterinary medicine, in trap/neuter/release, in rescues, in media, and in animal advocacy. This is Frankie Peanut who was rescued by our friends at the Ferndale Cat Shelter. He is 12 weeks old and was found with a broken femur. We are happy to be able to help with his surgery to save his leg. ~ dianafrankie peanut 7:20:17
