Litter mates Sonya and Atlas are almost ready for adoption.
Ive had them since July when they were 5 weeks old. All 4 were found in the woods-starving, sick and blind. Somebody had found them and posted them for FREE on a FB rehoming page. The post was up for days before I saw it. When I picked them up, kids were banging them together like dolls. One was just sitting in the middle of the floor blind and growling. I took them to the animal ER. The vet said they all had a severe upper respiratory infection, fleas, underweight and were neglected by their mother. We had to pry their eyes open. Sonya and Atlas had ruptured globes and needed their eyeballs removed. I took them to my vet later and he told me that their eyeballs were actually healing and repairing them selves! Countless eyedrops, eye wiping, antibiotics and an eye enucleation surgery (for both) later-and they have their eyes! Both are impaired in their right eye (possibly blind) and Atlas’ right eye is clouded from damage. He’s also a tad cross eyed 😼.
The other two kittens were adopted. Sonya and Atlas must be adopted together. They do everything together. They even walk through the house crying for each other (or me) and the other will come running. They do like other cats. They sleep with me every night. Love their wet food. They were scratching a few weeks ago so the vet gave them a steroid shot and said they might have a food allergy. Trying to figure that out now. Also, both of them still have drippy eyes.
Sonya and Atlas both know their names and will always respond when you call them. Atlas can be skittish to new people but Sonya helps him. Everybody who’s ever met her loves her. She gives the hardest head butts and face rubs. She has now discovered jumping on shoulders.
They have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped, FIV/felv negative, have no fleas and have been dewormed.
I’m gonna miss my terror twin babies so much 😭
Update- Lewis has been ADOPTED!
Lewis, the injured and neglected stray cat who showed up at my house, is home from his full mouth extraction (all teeth removed) stomatitis surgery. He is still bleeding, drooling and having trouble eating.￼ But, head butting, purring and being the sweetest boy. He is only 3 years old 🥺. Everybody at the vets office loved him.
His surgery bill is $480 (normally more than twice that). He has to eat special food for the next week that’s $3 a can.￼￼ We just barely reached the goal for his donations! Thank you to everybody who shared his sad story and especially donated! I hope he’s the last suffering kitty I come across for a long time. ￼He has been neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, treated for fleas/ear mites and is Fiv/Felv negative. ￼￼He gets along with other cats and kittens. Doesn’t mind being picked￼ up. He will tap you with his paw if you stop petting him🖤. I don’t know where Lewis came from but he’s already had a neglected painful life.
Update-Achilles and Adonis have been adopted into homes that already have kitties from me!
4 of the 8 kittens I rescued from down the street are available for adoption (I sent the other 4 to a foster)! They were kicked out when they were seven weeks old and left to fend for themselves by my crappy neighbors. Originally, there were TWELVE kittens. Sadly, 4 disappeared 💔. They are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for fleas and all parasites, felv/FIV negative, microchipped and healthy.
Achilles, Athena, Adonis and Selene. Athena almost died and had to be rushed to the vet. She’s 100% now!
-I’m taking him in next week-
I probably won’t leave this post up. Just making it to see if I could do anything for this poor cat.
Im not sure if his jaw is injured or if he needs teeth removed? But this cat has been hanging around at night lately. She/he’s pretty banged up. He has a bad oral injury and is drooling profusely. It really bothers him. It seems he’s missing some teeth. He’s always shaking his head and mouthing and has trouble eating dry food. Also, has cauliflower ear. I don’t know what happened to this cat or where it came from.
IF I were to grab him, would anyone donate for his medical care? I don’t know how much it will be but definitely a few hundred. The kittens have taken any available funds.. I’m trying to figure out what to do with this poor baby.
I now have FIVE kittens that are available for adoption.
Last night, I caught this 6-7 week old boy while feeding two adult females who occasionally come into my garage and beg for food and attention. I think his mother was abandoned by shitty people.
He is filthy, starving, thirsty and covered in fleas.
He’s been bathed and dewormed..
He slept next to me all night 🥰.
ALL FIVE kittens need loving, safe, indoor, forever homes. My other kittens are still unspoken for. HOW?! I think people are just sick of me having kitties and there are no more homes left. Well, I’m sick of having to keep rescuing them.
Thank you to everybody who keeps sharing. Hopefully, it will reach their people. I don’t want to give them to a different rescue and have no idea what happens to them...#saveourstrays
