5/9/24 – It was March 14 when we were contacted by a rescuer, Julie, whom we’ve assisted before. It was about a stray who wandered into a large colony farm she had tnr’d which had many big males. He took on “The king of the castle” but he ended up losing a battle that resulted in a severe injury to his eye and, hopefully, not his life.

Tiggy is a young male, around 1-2 years old. The injury was noticed about 9 days prior to our contact and the rescuer had already been to a vet who had prescribed ointments and advised that his eye would have to be removed. Julie advised that Tiggy is friendly and will go up for adoption once he recovers.

Thankfully, Julie and 4 paws 1 heart works with Dr. Diana at Eaton County Humane Society and she made arrangements with Julie to perform the needed surgery. Yesterday, I received the following from Julie: “Tiggy is 5 weeks post op and at two weeks post op had clear eye socket drainage. They gave him a second convenia injection and a week ago the socket opened up. It was good over the weekend but then the discharge changed to yellow. He has been throwing up the last few days but is acting himself otherwise and eats and drinks.”

This morning Tiggy was seen again with our approval and Julie reported the following: “Dr. Kelly has to put him back under and re-stitch that part of the eye. Since the edges are healed, it will never grow back together. She said she thinks the draining was coming from the nasal lacrimal duct because it has always been clear until the last couple days, but Tiggy is still eating drinking and not lethargic so we’re all good on that so that procedure will take place early this afternoon.”

Please keep Tiggy in your prayers for his full recovery and that he will find his furever home. – diana

Two weeks ago an owner was looking to give up her cat asap. Time was out, this cat was at a clinic to be euthanized, and something pushed me to reach out and offer to take her even tho I had no foster, no home lined up, and no plan. My gut said just do it, so I told the owner that I would take the cat if she could transport her to me. She left the shelter and surrendered her over to my care. Here is an update. Gina

5/6/24 Remember a few weeks ago when I was asked to take a 14 year old senior kitty that was going to be put down if no one could take her? We’ll, this is Paulette, the current foster to adopt mom who immediately connected with the senior cat named Casey.

Tonight, I picked Casey up because we are going to spay her and find out why she seems painful. Paulette shared a few words with me before we left. Isn’t she adorable?!

Huge thank you to 4 paws 1 heart for covering the medical and Denise Najera for helping unite these two souls.

The universe works in mysterious ways to bring those who are meant to be together!

5/8/24 Well, the doctor found out why Casey was painful. She has a bad abscess on her side which is why she was crying when picked up. There are a couple small punctures resembling a cat bite. We think it happened when Casey jumped out the door and was hiding for 8 hours until we found her. The vet drained what he could, it was swollen and filled with pus and inflammation. We gave her a 2 week lasting antibiotic injection, pain medication, and she is starting to feel better. The spay had to be postponed for 2 more weeks. We think she keeps trying to get out because she may be in heat. We don’t know if she was indoor/outdoor in her previous home, but she acts very interested.

It’s a wonderful feeling to feel the love Casey and Paulette now share, and I’m blessed to be a part of this journey.

5/8/24 – Last October, Bowie, started showing up at a house where the homeowners started providing food and water. In February, the homeowner noticed that Bowie appeared to be pregnant. They took Bowie in and later Bowie had 7 kittens. The homeowners were able to get 5 of the clan adopted but needed help getting the last two kittens and mom vaccinated and spayed. We were happy to help. – diana P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080


5/8/24 – Also, yesterday evening I received a call from our friend at Make A Difference who needed assistance getting a puppy fully vetted. This puppy had obviously been very abused and no photos could be provided. We were thankful to assist with this and now this baby will be in a safe home. – diana P.O.

5/8/24 – Yesterday evening I was contacted regarding this poor baby seen by a homeowner laying under her bushes. The homeowner was able to contact someone who was able to get the cat and who saw he had a huge hole in his neck with a bone sticking out (the photo is too graphic to share). That person then contacted someone who knew of 4 paws 1 heart. Arrangements were made to get him into our medical partner, Advanced Animal Emergency, but he died on the way to the hospital. 4 paws 1 heart paid for Mason’s cremation. Thank you to the rescuer who acted so quickly and for giving Mason love at the end. – diana P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080
