Teddy and Cuddles

teddy_cuddles1Update: Teddy and Cuddles have been adopted.

Cuddles is a six month old Siamese mix kitten and Teddy is her older brother. According to the eye specialist, Cuddles has very limited vision. She is very sweet but also very dependent on Teddy, a nine month old Siamese mix who is probably her brother form another litter. The pair are available for permanent foster as well as adoption. Cuddles is on no special medication, but surgery may someday help her see better.

Zoe, Nike, Spartacus

Zoe, the mother, is still available for adoption and patiently awaiting her forever home, too.

Update: Great news! Nike and Spartacus have been adopted by very loving families. Zoe the mother is still available and patiently waiting for her forever home too.

Three very special cats are looking for special homes


Zoe arrived at the shelter only days away from delivering a litter of six kittens.  Sadly, all but two passed away shortly after they were born.  Nike, a black and white boy was normal, but his brother, Spartacus, was born with contracted tendons in his front legs.  His legs were bent inward and he walked on his elbows.

At four weeks, he was too small for surgery, and  veterinarians predicted that as he grew, he would become too heavy to walk on his weakened front legs. They suggested that euthanasia would eventually be the only choice for him.

Fortunately, his foster mom researched his condition online and tried a treatment that had been successful in some cases.  She warmed his legs with a heating pad, massaged them, and put them in lightweight cardboard splints held in place with bandages. She performed the treatments several times a day for weeks.  Miraculously, the treatments began to work.  Spartacus began to walk normally, and now, plays with Nike and Zoe like a normal kitten.

Nike and Spartacus are now six months old, and it is time for the boys and Zoe to find forever homes.  Of course it would be wonderful if they could be adopted together, but it is more important that each of these special cats find a home-whether together or separately-where they can be loved and cared for.
