R.I.P. Eeyore: Our handsome grey boy, Eeyore, appeared to be making a slow recovery from the paralysis in the back legs which was giving us time to raise the funds to do more investigatory work to establish the cause which would involve full bloods, x-rays and possibly an MRI, however, Sunday evening he took a turn for the worse and became paralysed also in the front legs and could only lift his head. He was scared and frustrated. Early on Monday morning we had no option but to let him go to a better place and he is now at peace and out of pain and has been buried on the farm having been p.t.s by our Vet. He wasn’t even 8 months old and with all his disabilities he was, for most of his time with us, a happy and playful kitten and will be sorely missed by all of us.
Thank you: We would like to thank all those who assisted us with some of his medical bills especially our one donor who paid for his original visit to the Jhb Animal Eye Hospital where we established that his left eye was causing no pain and although there was no sight in that eye it did not need to be removed. If anyone can please make a donation in memory of darling Eeyore it would greatly assist us in paying off the Vet bills for both Eeyore and Dody, our teenager who passed away a couple of weeks ago from possibly F.I.P.
Video: Nadja and Nandi seen playing in the box, a video taken yesterday, were a week ago both at the vets for the whole day with Nadja on a drip. They then had to visit the vet for injections daily for the past week and appeared to be recovering from a secondary infection having had the snuffles previously but Sunday evening Nandi had a set-back and both were back at the vet on Monday morning but now back at home and happily playing with the box.
Kittens are so resilient but very vulnerable up to the age of 12 weeks.
Then we have another litter of 4 who are currently in foster care and will be ready to be homed in about 3 to 4 weeks once they have had their 1st vaccinations at 8 weeks of age.
Adoptions: Approved adoption applications and home-checks apply whether it be for any of the kittens, teenagers or adult cats at the shelter.
Our adoption fee of R850 covers 1st and 2nd vacs. as well as rabies, deworming, deflea, and sterilisation when done by one of our nominated Vets.
Donations: Food donations handed into Biz Express or put into our bin just inside the doors of our local Pick’n Pay are still down. Huge thanks though to the donor of the Pampers kibbles and 2 boxes of Whiskas pouches handed to Biz Xpress and to the 2 donors who put food into the Pick’nPay bin.
