Paralyzed Cat Was Scheduled For Euthanasia Until One Woman Gave Him A Chance

Nova – Smart Enough to Show Up at the Right House

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. ~ diananova 4:12:17

Hobbit – Couldn’t Walk Due to an Abscess on His Leg

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. ~ dianahobbit w:cheryl klos 3:25:17Hobbit w:cherylKloss 3:25:17

Cadbury, Peeps, and Thumper – Found Near Their Dead Mother

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.

Smudge – A Domesticated Cat, Wounded and Living in a Cat Community

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

smudge w:pamclark 4:7:174/8/17 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

Ferals and Dumped Cats – Rescued by Safe Haven Rescue

4/7/17 – As is typical, unfortunately, the medical needs required for stray and abandoned cats continue to be overwhelming. As I’ve said before — We Do Not Discriminate — but, we seem to be called on to help with cats more often than dogs. Here are some more cats who have been rescued by Safe Haven Rescue whom we are helping to be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and in some cases treated for fleas and upper respiratory infections. My heart breaks every time I’m called about these poor forgotten or dumped animals who are on the streets to fend for themselves at no choice of their own. ~ dianaferals w:sherrie warren 4:7:17feral w:sherrie warren--4:17:17ferals w:sherrie warren ----4:7:17feralsw:sherrie warren 4:7:17
