2/23/24 – Miggy was rescued from a corner where his finder had been seeing him for quite some time. He is very sweet but was very neglected although at one time he had been TNR’d. He was taken to one of our partner vets where he was treated for an infection. Unfortunately, his mouth is still infected and his gums are very inflamed. We have authorized his continued treatment and continue to hope that his finder, Bonita, can find him a permanent, loving home. – diana

2/22/24 – Harmony was dropped off in the middle of the road and it appeared to be missing her upper lip. Voices for Community Cats contacted us to see if we could help and if we could, they would take her in to their rescue. Harmony was seen at Orion Animal Hospital. Harmony was found to have an ulcerated paw pad, patchy alopecia, a wound on her mouth , and severe rodent ulcers.

According to Catster: “Rodent ulcer is an allergic reaction with any number of causes that results in unsightly, often painful lesions around a cat’s lips, chin, inside the mouth, and in some cases, other parts of the body. It’s most common in younger cats aged two and under, and female cats. If left untreated, this can result in permanent disfigurement.” Harmony did have a tipped ear. She is fiv/felv negative. Harmony did receive a steroid injection and will be seen again within the next two weeks. – diana

2/22/24 – Smokey is one of approximately 16 stray cats being cared for by a kind woman on the west side of Detroit. Smokey has been on and off ill for the past month. He’s had bleeding paws and weight loss but then appeared to get well with antibiotics. But recently the bleeding started again and Smokey took up residence in a shelter kept on the finder’s porch. Roxanne, Smokey’s finder, took him to a vet where he was again treated with antibiotics but she couldn’t afford any additional treatment. She then contacted us. Smokey was seen yesterday by Dr. Mina, Five Mile Animal Hospital. Dr. Mina reported that both of Smokey’s paws were torn open and were severely lacerated and infected. Smokey was sedated and his paws were cleaned and sutured. Roxanne is hoping to find a home for Smokey. If you can help, please contact her at: [email protected] – diana
