Introducing SweetPea

 Little SweetPea came to us 6/27/12   from the Cumberland County Animal Control Center.  Lucky for her, the pound (which is a very High Kill Shelter)  has Ann, who works very hard to try to find a place for the animals to go.   This little girl was born missing her back 2 feet  and half of her tail.    How could we say no to this cutie?





We immediately got her to our vet to see what her health situation is.  She is approx 6 weeks old  (that is on 6/29/12),  the vet feels that the bottom of her legs were caused in utero from the umbilical cord getting wrapped around her legs and cutting off the circulation etc.   She has osteomyelitis (which is a bone infection) and a fractured femar. (She is on pain medication and antibiotics for the infection)   Other than that she is actually in decent shape.  As you can see in the video,  not having her 2 feet does not slow her down at all.









Because of missing her feet, we want to make sure we use a very soft litter for her to dig in, this is the same litter that we use for Popcorn because of her amputation and for LT because it is the only kind she will use.  



This is from our Amazon Wish list





We are still experimenting on what foods she likes,  but she does not seem to be a picky eater,  she does like the Petite Cuisine.



She is looking for sponsors  :)   You may do that on her webpage  http://blindcatrescue.com/Sweetpea.html

Introducing LT

Little LT,  with a lot of help,  came to us from a kill shelter in Florida.  She is very sweet!  She is finally learning how to play and use the litter box  (YEAH!)   She has adjusted really well.  We are a lifetime care sanctuary,  so she now has a forever home with us :)

After surgery

before surgery

We would like to thank the kind people that have sent all the wonderful gifts, especially this kitty litter
from our amazon wish list!!  http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/14VUTQST8F5XH    




If you have a cat that won't use the litter box and you have tried all the others,  try this one,  it is very soft,  and has a 100% usage &  money back guarantee.  This is the only litter we have found that LT will use, and we are also using it for Popcorn as her amputation heals because it is so soft.

We would like to thank the following for their gifts from our Amazon list!

Recent Visitors

We had this family stop by to visit the cats on the way to the beach from New Jersey.  I didn't get the chance to write their names down because we had to cut their visit short when I had to rush a cat to the vet having an asthma attack  (He is fine)  So I apologize to them for not remembering their names!





Mickey never misses the opportunity offer kisses

Paul is a giant lap cat

Introducing Meadow

Introducing Meadow.   Meadow came to us last year from a shelter that was in over their head and another rescue stepped in to help them place their animals.  She came to us missing lots of hair,  we thought it was an allergy issue,  found out later it was actually from stress.  As you can see here, her hair has grown back and she is super friendly. She has adjusted well to being with us,  gets along well with the other cats and seems to have settled in nicely.

We would also like to thank Angela for the undercover mouse from our Amazon wish list  http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/14VUTQST8F5XH  that she is playing
and Thank you to unnamed for the food, litter and trash bags!!
Thank you to unnamed for the trash bags, softener sheets, toys and bed!

Abbey Update

This is Abbey,  she came to us from a local high kill animal shelter.  At 14 years of age, her family dropped her off saying they can't have pets where they live.  They also said she had lived her entire life with them. Lucky for her the shelter called us.


The day we brought her home from the pound
The day after her eye surgery
She became very very depressed (Who wouldn't after losing your home, your family, your friends,
 even the food that you eat every day)  She ended up with a feeding tube

                               A video of her being loved on and watch the surprise ending!!

After a lot of loving on her,  she started eating again,   she finally got the feeding tube removed!

Her favorite food in the world :)  It came from our amazon wish list
http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/14VUTQST8F5XH 


Eating like a champ :)   We are going to crate her at night to make sure she continues
 eating for a  while longer,  but she is out all day.
