4/12/17 – Our community is so blessed to have so many animal advocates and 4 Paws 1 Heart. Our dear friend and cat whisperer, Debra Berolatti, is one of those people. I think the underground cat community has put out the word that if you show up at Debra’s house, she will make sure your are fed, fixed, and sheltered because all of a sudden, Debra has had cats in need showing up at her house. This is Nova who did just that. Debra was able to get Nova to the vet, complements of 4 Paws 1 Heart, and he is now with our friends at Ferndale Cat Rescue. Another life saved because of this phenomenal community. ~ diana
4/11/17 – Meet Hobbit. He showed up in a cat community unable to use his one leg. The caretaker of the community took Hobbit to the vet where x-rays were done and medication was given. After one week, Hobbit was still having a hard time walking and we were contacted. Hobbit was taken to one of our great veterinary clinics where surgery was performed on his abscess. Today he is doing quite well and continues to heal inside the caretaker’s home. ~ diana

Donations are slow at this time, so if you have a few extra dollars please consider making a donation to 4 Paws 1 Heart.

4/10/17 – update on this sweet girl: Adalene had her multiple fractures repaired, and was discharged a few days ago. She is doing well in her foster home, is on 3-4 weeks of crate rest. Once she has fully recovered she will be available for adoption through Paws for Life Animal Rescue!
CADBURY, PEEPS, AND THUMPER UPDATE, Well all 3 kittens are doing great! They eat a ton, poddie lots, and love to be snuggled! They are almost 5 weeks old now and will be ready for good homes in no less than 3 to 4 weeks. They are still on the bottle and not yet experienced with the litter box but we’re getting there. There has been some interest, but I haven’t had any applications filled out yet. This week I’ll be calling the ladies who first inquired and we’ll go from there. Thank you all for your support, and if you would like to make a donation towards their medical care you can do that on our website at www.4paws1heart.org. thank u ♡ Gina
Our boy Chance gets famous on WDIV with our great friend, Shawn Ley. Please remember that without donations we can’t give animals like Chance a second Chance. You might want to follow Chance on his page, Second Chance for Chance. ~ diana
4/7/17 – So happy we can be there for the abandoned and abused. We were contacted by a friend of 4 Paws 1 Heart who cares for community cats. One of the guys she had been caring for showed up with a large abscess on his face. Unfortunately, it took a couple of days to catch him but thankfully it happened yesterday and our great friends at Rescue Veterinary Services squeezed us in. Smudge had obviously been in pain and as you can see from Pam Clarke‘s report, his injuries were greater than thought. As she said, Smudge will be on the road to recovery and 4 Paws 1 Heart took care of the entire bill.. ~ diana
4/8/17 Update: Smudge after his surgery, now sleeping soundly. Pam says that he was obviously someone’s cat at one time. He just wants to rub up to her and purrs constantly. When she puts food down, he eats it so fast it’s obvious that he had to ‘fight’ amongst others to eat. I just can’t imagine what life is like for an animal who was once in a home now having to live in the wild not knowing how to fend for himself. Many prayers for this little guy. Unfortunately, he was found to be FIV positive but this is not a death sentence. His rescuer will keep Smudge inside and will try to find him the perfect home.~ diana
4/6/17 – Midnight appeared at a home after obviously being in a fight. He had many wounds on his body but was very friendly. We had Midnight visit one of our professional and generous veterinarians to have his wounds treated, checked for a microchip, vaccinated, tested, and neutered. Unfortunately, there was no microchip and although we are sure he must have been inside at one time, his owners could not be found. In the process of his vet visit, it was found that Midnight was FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) positive. According to Pets Web MD, “Cats who are infected with feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) may not show symptoms until years after the initial infection occurred. Although the virus is slow-acting, a cat’s immune system is severely weakened once the disease takes hold. This makes the cat susceptible to various secondary infections. Infected cats who receive supportive medical care and are kept in a stress-free, indoor environment can live relatively comfortable lives for months to years before the disease reaches its chronic stages.” A temporary foster was found for him. ~ diana
4/5/17 – Meet Megan – she showed up at our Board member’s feral cat colony where she works. She was trying to trap a believed-to-be pregnant female but got what she thought was a boy (orange tabby). This poor baby had bare spots in her fur which when she was taken to the veterinarian, it was determined that it was caused from a flea allergy. She is estimated to be only 6 months old which makes us very sad but SHE WILL NEVER EVER EVER have kittens! As always, we are always there (as long as we have the funds) to stop the overpopulation of animals. Megan was spayed, vaccinated and treated for fleas and released back to her community. May God (and loving humans) continue to watch these innocent animals who deserve so much more.
