9/1/23 – You may have seen the post asking for help for this poor stray cat who appeared to have a broken jaw. Allison and her mom stepped up to get Marble and arrangements were made to get him into Orion Animal Hospital where he was seen this morning. Unfortunately, his injuries were too severe and it was decided by the rescuer and doctor to end his suffering. Today he crossed the Rainbow Bridge no longer suffering.

As an added note, I was later advised that a neighbor had told Allison’s mom that Marble had been intentionally hurt. The suffering and abuse of the stray animals in our communities can be overwhelming to learn. We must continue to work as village to do whatever we can to make a difference. – diana P.O.

9/1/23 – To be totally transparent Socks’ medical needs was brought to us in May. He kept showing up at a homeowner’s garage and was very thin but friendly. The homeowners thought he might have escaped from his home or had been abandoned. The caring people fed him in hopes of fattening him up but one day he showed up not putting weight on one leg. Socks was seen at Patterson Veterinary Hospital in Clinton Twp. and thankfully, Socks did not have a broken leg but had a severe infection which was treated. Socks was found to be a ‘teen’ and also had a mass on his kidney. But the family decided that he could live his best life under their care. He later was vaccinated and neutered and was doing well with his rescuers. The rescuers reported that he was enjoying their home a little at a time. – diana P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080
