5/18/23 – Although we try to be there for rescue organizations like Run Around Sue, veterinary hospitals, and first responders, the majority of our assistance is provided to what I call, independent rescuers or those individuals who, out of the kindness of their heart, care for cat communities and use what little money they may have to spay/neuter, feed, and sometimes house, those animals who, for whatever reason, could never find their furever, loving home. Patricia is one of those who we’ve been able to assist for nearly the beginning of our existence and here is her story on Starlite:

“Good morning Diana, I wanted to give you an update on Starlite who needed dental work at Patterson’s. First, I want to thank you with all my heart for helping us. Starlite had already lost a lot of his teeth prior to this, and long story short, he had all but 3 teeth pulled during this recent visit. And now, I have a new kitty! A little back story on Starlite….He came to me as a 4 week old kitten. He has been an enigma ever since. As a baby he refused to transition to wet food. I literally had to force feed him wet food for 2 months until he finally started eating kibbles. He spent his entire life refusing any wet or people food! He also had a habit of licking concrete! On top of that he developed Haws Disease, which effects the 3rd eye lid. For years I never saw his complete eyes cleared. And most of the time the 3rd eye lids would be red and swollen and cover over half of his eyes. Hence, he never got adopted and remained with me. He also suffers from anxiety and has separation anxiety to boot! He’s a trip! But the most loving cat in the house! Fast forward to the last few weeks. He had lost weight over a pound and a half, (also dealing with diarrhea), I told you he’s a mess, lol…..well…..out of the blue, he decided my chicken dinner looked good! Since then, he has developed the taste for chicken and turkey and it’s the mainstay of his diet and he has gained back over a pound of his lost weight! I boil up whole chickens and turkey legs just for him! This morning, while giving him his meds, for the first time in years I could see both of his eyes almost completely clear. I have no clue why, maybe the meds, maybe his new diet, but to say I am happy is putting it mildly. Bless you for all you do for us! -Patricia

A huge thanks to our many supporters. You Save Lives – diana P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080
