Meet “Burger” she is in recovery and doing great! 4 Paws 1 Heart covered her spay surgery today, and our good friends from NBS rescue have her lined up with Ferndale Cat Shelter for permanent placement. If anyone is interested in adopting please contact the shelter. It takes a village. Thank you to everyone involved. – Gina

3/31/23 – Crixus came to our attention in the summer of 2020 when he had a hurt paw. He received x rays and all of the usual medications which cost much more than it should have but…..He continued to be a community cat in Hamtramck, MI although the caretaker would try to keep him in at night to lessen potential fights. At that time Crixus was already at least 9 years old. Then, last summer Crixus was having issues with swallowing; again, we were contacted and Crixus was found to have an infection. We were happy to help again. In February of this year, we were again contacted about this very resilient boy. When his caretaker went to feed him, he was found to be throwing up blood. Again, Crixus was trapped and we were contacted. Crixus saw our great friends at Five Mile Animal Hospital where the doctor diagnosed Stomatitis and recommended a full dental extraction. On March 24 Crixus had his surgery and now will never see the outside again unless it’s through his caretaker’s window. His caretaker said that without 4 Paws 1 Heart, Crixus would have never made it to 13 years old. — We say, without the love of our supporters, thousands of animals would have never lived another day. – diana

3/30/23 – Prayers for sweet Claus with Run Around Sue Rescue. The doctor wants to run a PCR test because the little guy just can’t seem to kick his upper respiratory infection; it keeps coming back. The doctor wants to make sure it’s not something else she should be treating. The PCR test is a sensitive test for detecting the presence of the upper respiratory pathogens Chlamydophila felis, Feline Herpesvirus and Feline Calicivirus. The test is most reliable in cases with clinical disease. – diana

We can’t thank you enough 4paws, he’s such a sweet boy he tries to keep up, but sometimes he just gets too tired. I hate when he’s had a stuffy and his chest is readily so let’s hope we can find what the issue is and take care of it or hopefully it’s something he can grow out of. – Tina

We’ll keep trying. Fortunately, he is seeing one of the best. –
