7/20/21 – Often our followers believe we just assist felines but that is not the case. It is just that in the past 16 months, there have been more cats and kittens on the streets that have ever been seen before by many of the rescuers and just general public. Why?? There are probably many reasons. It’s been very difficult to get cats into veterinary hospitals as well as low-cost clinics because of pandemic restrictions and the inability for the hospitals to keep up with the demand. Lack of staff. Pet owners out of work found it necessary to leave their animals behind or to let them go. And the fact that cats can reproduce as early as 4 months old and can have 3 litters a year — very much unlike canines — just escalates the issue. I will be trying to post some of the cats we assisted throughout 2020 and 2021 that I just didn’t have the opportunity to post, just to give our supporters a sense of how their money is spent.This is Eva, Jamie, Artimas, Howey, Honey, and Tabby. All were seen by our partner veterinary hospitals for the standard medical needs and some were also treated for upper respiratory infections which is often the case when kittens/cats are left on the streets for a period of time. – diana.
