Jax – Born on the Street, Needed Emergency Medical Care

6/30/19 – So many of these little babies are being born on the street and dying on the street. This poor, very sick kitten — 3 to 4 weeks old– was taken into our great partners at Advanced Animal Emergency. The second kitten needing to be seen at emergency since Thursday. He was put on fluids and antibiotics for the day and then returned later to his rescuer with more fluids, medication, and food for syringe feeding. I spoke to the rescuer last night who reported that this little guy is a fighter and was starting to eat. We will keep on top of this and he will be treated as necessary. Prayers for this sweetie. –
Diana.

Chance – The Miracle When a Village Comes Together

6/27/19 – Chance is so right. Our village makes miracles happen every day. – diana

“Ahhhh, it’s good to be King! And it’s good to be able to walk, climb & jump!!! You know that clubhouse on my page that say CHANCE on it? Mom made that for me out of the box that this Cat Tree sent to us by Auntie Debi & Uncle Dave came in. Know why? Cus she felt terrible that all the other cats had something new to play with and I couldnt climb up here cus I couldnt walk. Mom says it broke her heart to see everybody having fun but me. Mom put a lot of love into that SuperHero Clubhouse and I adored it!!! And all the other cats came to play with me in it. But that Cat Tree was incentive, and look at me now!!! That’s what happens when dedicated individual fosters Team up with 4 Paws 1 Heart, miracles happen!!!
By the way, if you didnt see the update on Isaac’s post..Auntie Di approved an emergency visit to one of our fave vets and Isaac has a pretty serious UTI which is not uncommon with paraplegic cats. He was given antibiotics & anti inflammatory meds and has a recheck in a week.
Well Team, this King is getting ready to go snuggle with his Queen Mother!!! 😉 Sweet dreams everybody, see you in the morning. Love, purrs & woofs Chance & the Gang

Abigail – Hit By A Car

6/26/19 – I received a call late Saturday night about a cat found on the street “in very bad shape”. The cat was said to be bleeding from the nose and mouth and her eye seemed to protrude. Our friend Shelley Emerson, contacted me and I approved her to see our great doctors at Advanced Animal Emergency. Thankfully they were able to see her pretty quickly.
The doctor called me a couple hours later to say Abigail was stable and it appeared she had been hit by a car. They treated her with antibiotics and suggested a follow-up visit in a few days.
Shelley tells me that Abigail is doing much better and will be scheduled for a follow up visit this week. ~ diana

Vinny – RIP – May Have Been Poisoned

6/24/19 – RIP Vinny. Life on the streets is not an easy one for innocent animals. Vinny was a community cat born on the porch of a independent rescuer we have helped before. He collapsed the other night on her porch, totally jaundiced. Vinny was the second community cat to show up in the past week who was severely ill. The rescuer is concerned that someone may be poisoning cats. We approved to have him seen by one of our partner vets who immediately started him on fluids and ran tests. Unfortunately, Vinny did not make it. Outside of him being found to be FeLV positive, there was no other definitive diagnosis. He is now running free and pain free. ~ 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! 😊”rick 6:21:19 rick 6:21::19- rick before 2019 rick before---2019 rick before --- 6:19

Honey – Living in a Cat Community – Needed an Eye Removed – Never to Go Back Outside

6/20/19 – Honey was discovered in a cat community that a kind woman had been TNR’ing since last October. Honey’s eye was totally red. Honey was taken to a nearby vet where it was determined that Honey’s eye would need to be removed. The rescuer contacted us and we advised that we would help as long as I could be assured that Honey would never be outdoors again. Honey was seen by one of our partner vets where her eye was removed. Unfortunately, shortly after surgery, there was an obvious issue with the surgery and she was again taken back to the vet. It was determined that an infection had set in and, once again, poor, sweet Honey had to once again go under to reopen the wound. Yesterday, she was seen briefly by the doctor and the doctor felt everything looked good. Honey seems to be fitting in wonderfully and her rescuer will be working with her so that she can be adopted in the future.
This has been quite the Spring with kittens, serious surgeries for dogs and cats, and heart worm treatment. I am forever grateful that we can help these poor abandoned animals who would otherwise die on the streets. Thank You to the rescuers, the fosters, the adopters, our vets, and our donors.
