She had her spay and initial tooth extraction surgery done, but they couldn’t keep her under too long in the condition she was in so she’ll still need much more oral surgery to fix everything.

Right now she’s at her new foster’s getting stronger to have more surgery performed. She is on a special prescription diet to help her gain weight and to try to control her diarrhea (hopefully it’s a food allergy that can easily be remedied with a selected protein grain free diet). She follows her new foster everywhere, loves to lay with her and get belly rubs. She is in love with this new cat bed that was donated to Kitten Angels (and she’s got to realize how gorgeous she looks on it!).

PRE SURGERY BIO:

Her’s is such a sad story and yet all too common – she was found wandering around a development in Selkirk. Sub zero weather. Animal Control got involved – but no one claimed to know her. She was fed by a kind lady in her garage for a few days, who then called Kitten Angels.

The poor girl is missing all top teeth, her bottom ones are broken. To make matters worse, she had HORRIBLE diarrhea. We got her to the vet immediately, only to learn she had more issues and needs surgery, so she’s now back at the vet for a few days. She’s in so much pain she didn’t even want the vet to examine her mouth, but was purring and rubbing against the vet when she was touched anywhere else.
She had never been fixed, but gratefully was not pregnant, so will spay her right away, and she tested negative for FeLV/FIV (always concerns when a cat has been struggling on her own outside).

Poor thing is in a lot of pain, but so super sweet -she only ever wants to sit in your lap. She was so very well behaved with other cats at her foster’s home and, from her demeanor and behavior, it seems like she had once been a loved house pet. She uses the litter box and she never once hid or was scared.

Right now all we want is for her to get better.

1/16/17 UPDATE ON REESE

Reese had her surgery today. She was spayed and one quartered of her dental work was done. They were unable to complete her dental work due to the fact that she could not stay under anesthesia any longer. If anyone is interested in how bad her mouth looked, we were able to get some pictures from the specialist (note they are of her during the procedures so we’ve added some warning pics first just so that the graphic nature doesn’t show up on your newsfeed if you don’t want to see).

She will go into foster care and try to put on some weight and heal and rest. Then the rest of the work will be completed. She has a lot of pain in her mouth due to the condition of her mouth so we have her on a special diet as well.

Other good news! Her biopsy came back negative for cancer!

Her foster mom will be sending pictures and updates on a regular basis, so you can see her improve with good care. We are so glad we were able to save this sweet Angel and put her back on her feet, but we still still need your help to get the rest of the dental work done.

Here are some pictures of her surgery:

Emmons

Sweet young Emmons needs your help.

Emmons has had a hard life from the get go. He was one of 7 kittens born to a young feral mom in foster care who stressed out so badly she started to mangle her kittens. Emmons end up with a gash on his head before he could be rescued from her, but he was one of the lucky ones as only 3 of the kittens survived. Luckily Marcy at Puddy Tat’s Foster Page had just given birth to her twins born 30 hrs apart and was able to take on these extra 3 as her own.
He was raised in love and comfort but started to develop an eye issue. Originally he was treated for his eye infection, which now can be seen as a worse condition, an Entropic bottom eyelid, that needs to be surgically repaired.
Entropian is “a condition in which your eyelid rotates inward. The eyelashes rub against the eye and cause redness, irritation, and abrasions on the cornea of the eye. The eyelid retraction develops slowly and may not be noticeable in its early stages. Over time, however, the condition worsens until every movement of the eye irritates the surface of the cornea. Without treatment, this continuous abrasion can cause eye infections and scarring of the eyeball. With a serious case, you can lose sight in the affected eye.” This can be extremely painful, though this kitten is nothing but cuddly and and sweet. Not even 3 months old, he’s now scheduled for his second surgery. He’s now staying at Sophia L’Orange – Foster Kittens, to get healthier and stronger before the surgery. We could definitely use your help to cover the costs and aftercare.
You can continue to watch Emmons progress and recovery on his Foster’s page and can donate online either through Facebook (as they don’t charge non profits a fee on donations) or by clicking the link below.  Thank you so much for helping us help him get better.

Tiger

Dear Friends and Followers,

We need your support to help save this little angel who was literally pulled from the jaws of death.

One of our fosters, Foster Mom Wendy S (FMW), got a call from a friend that he had a kitten emergency and didn’t know who else to call.  He had let his housemate’s dog out, per usual, and after a few minutes heard the dog going nuts. She had found a litter of kittens, hidden in a wheel well by their feral mom cat, and was attacking them. She had already killed one and had this little female in her mouth. He actually was able to get the kitten from the dog and got the dog away from the other kittens and back in the house, then went to survey the damage. The other three were fine, thanks to his quick actions! The mom was not there-probably out hunting for food herself, but they couldn’t be left in her hiding spot. (Our hearts can’t help but ache for this feral mom, as she will frantically look for them when she returns. She a cat with whom they are all familiar, doesn’t let anyone near her, but we are hoping to trap her to spay and find a safe place for her).

Approved for intake, FMW got the kittens home to her house and settled in a large luxury dog crate for quarantine – irony right there – and fed them some wet food.  They are probably about 4-5 weeks old. The injured one wasn’t moving her hind legs-and was on and off belly breathing (never good – honestly weren’t sure she was going to make it).

Got her (Tiger – the oh so original name FMW came up with quickly at the vet) to one of the animal hospitals we work with where the vet took X-rays and while the kitten’s back isn’t broken, there’s some internal damage. So she’s staying in the  animal hospital at least overnight and they will try to get the swelling down and see if she’ll pull through. No promises, but deserves a chance!

With kitten season being in full swing and the other emergencies we’ve had, we need your help more than ever.

Whether you can give $5 or $105, every dollar helps!
