Joanne contacted 4p1h about a colony of cats and kittens behind a market in Shelby Twp. people have been feeding them but they are in pretty bad shape. One kitten appeared to have been injured and the back two legs were dragging behind him. Gina immediately asked Joanne to get the kitten into emergency. Unfortunately, the baby had been seriously injured and the legs were paralyzed, he also had internal injuries, along with many other issues. Unfortunately he could not be saved. But, the positive news is that three great individual rescuers who 4p1h has assisted on many occasions went out late today to start trapping/rescuing. I also want to add that our good friends atFerndale Cat Shelter will also be assisting on this project. Here is the update on tonights’s activities.
5 kittens were rescued tonight. 2 are 8 weeks old and 4p1h will pay for them to be vetted, vaccinated and dewormed (their little bellies are bulging so they are probably filled with worms) tomorrow morning; when they are ready, spayed. They will be fostered by one of the rescuers. A 10 week old, will be assessed by one of the 3 rescuers who went out there. She’ll determine whether this kitten is feral or not. Right now it’s looking positive for potential adoption. The final two are truly feral and they will be fixed and returned to be cared for by someone who is caring for the colony. ~ diana
