A plea for vet bills please: These are mounting up on the cats and kittens I have down here in foster care and with which I cannot burden the Friends of Ferals shelter in Hennopsriver as theirs too are ever increasing with our local Vet there. I do not run accounts with the Vets who already give me welfare rates and altho’ these cats are the shelter’s responsibility if there is no money to pay the Vet I pay the Vet out of my own income which being retired soon disappears. Even if it is R100 donation it all adds up, please!
Nutmeg: the 7 week old kitten abandoned in the Leaping Frog Centre and in my care for past 4 weeks (now 11 weeks old) is still getting 2 baths a week for the ringworm which seems to have cleared up but still 1 week of baths to come. She has had various check-ups followed by her 1st vaccinations and her booster vacs and rabies will be at the end of next week. Her meds alone have cost me R700.
Sarah: still in foster care, is being monitored closely in the hope that we can get her healthy and fit before her next visit to the Vet for a further check-up possibly at the Specialist Hospital to see whether anything can be done on the old break of the ankle and the degenerative spondylosis which were diagnosed after doing x-rays. This again has so far cost me well over R1000.
Then 2 of the shelter’s kittens also in my care but with foster moms were spayed and, well after curfew, decided to pull out their stitches which meant me dashing around to the 24 hour vets to get the smallest of buster collars (cones) which were still too large so another plan had to be made which involved someone taking shifts to stay up all night.
Shiray: Watch the video below, she is still awaiting her forever home. She is still in foster care, her siblings having all been homed weeks ago and she would have been my kitten of choice. Such personality, can play on her own or with the resident cats of all ages and loves cuddles from her human foster parents.
Food Donations: Our bin just inside the Lonehill Pick’nPay has had little or nothing in there for the past week or so but to those that did donate, thank you. A huge thanks to Linda for the donation of food you left with Biz X-Press and condolences to you at the loss of your darling kitty. May she fly free with the butterflies. Also thanks to Melanie for the regular donation also left with Biz X-Press.
Adoptions: Approved adoption applications and home-checks apply whether it be for any of the kittens, teenagers or adult cats at the shelter, Friends of Ferals, or with me.
Our adoption fee of R850 covers 1st vacs and boosters as well as 1st rabies, deworming, deflea, and sterilization when done by one of our nominated Vets.
