Liza

Liza is one of our original 12 FELV+ cats to come in when we opened the FELV building in 2011.
She and Journey are the only ones left from the originals.   She came to us, with alot of
help from the Animal Control center in Austin Texas.   She was pulled from the pound
by Shadow Cats and boarded at the vets down there (Shadow Cats owner is also a vet)
Our Fly Angel Britta flew from Dallas to pick her up and delivered her to Atlanta.  
One of our board members  (Lisa)  living in Atlanta brought her to us a week later.
She shows it takes a village sometimes to save a cat's life.





Liza is a bit shy,  not fond of most of the humans but gets along good with the other cats.

BOONE

Boone is approx. 10 years old and blind.  He came to us from the 
town of Boone,  thus the name "Boone".  
He was lucky to have been saved from the pound by some dedicated volunteer
who brought him to us.

He is a friendly fellow, gets along with the rest of his roommates for
the most post, and has the distinction of being the only male in his room.

Often people will see him walk and notice that he has a limp or he
will sometimes be holding a back paw up.  It has been looked at
by the orthopedic vet and it apparently a birth defect of his foot.
There is no injury.

He can be watched live on http://ustream.tv/blindcatrescue on Friday's.

Bear

Bear came to us in 2011 after his owner died.  The family did not want all of grannies cats and lucky for them, a rescue stepped in and helped place the cats.  Bear is FIV+   He is a super friendly guy, gets along good with other cats and loves humans.  He is also a Manx,  he has no tail.  Because he also has no stump he has very poor rectal muscles and has to have his bottom washed often.  We have a video of Bear getting a bath below.  He is a bit of a drama queen,  the bath lasted less than 3 minutes.

Today is crazy kitty day!  LIVE on Ustream!

http://ustream.tv/blindcatrescue


Hope you will drop in and visit :)  Tours at noon & 3 pm EST

chat at 6 pm and boxes at 6:30 pm EST









Today's Kitty is Richey



Richey came to us in 2011.  He was turned into animal control 

by a person who found him in a ditch laying next to a dead

cat assumed to be his mother.  Lucky for him, volunteers

were there and intercepted him before.   In NC laws

the laws for animal control facilities clearly state that if

an animal is sick, injured or blind they may be immediately 

euthanized.  Richey would have been at the top of the list.

They contacted us and asked us to take him.

He is a sweet funny fellow.


As a baby



Being helpful getting on the scale to get weighed

Keller

Keller is an old fellow,  approx 15 years old.  He came to us in 2007 when his owner decided that his dislike of cat hair was more than his desire for the cat's company.  In his defense,  he does sponsor him.

Keller developed hyperthyroid a few years ago and after a few years of medication had the radiation therapy which cured him.   He is a nice fellow who loves humans, likes catnip and sprays like crazy.  
You can watch him on Wednesdays live on http://ustream.tv/blindcatrescue




Keller likes catnip
