Kittens

Rein: Miracle baby

Age: 8 months

Gender: spayed female

Breed: DSH

Colour: grey tabby

Health: FIV/FeLV negative, fully vaccinated, spayed, dewormed. Rein is a special needs kitten.

Activity level: high (she’s definitely a kitten)

Good with other cats: yes, she loves every one of her foster siblings

Good with dogs: yes

Good with small children: once she gets use to them, she’s fine.

Rein came to us last summer badly hurt, likely hit by a car. She couldn’t use her back legs at all, totally paralyzed in the back end. Xrays showed a spinal injury right at the base of her tail. We also discovered she couldn’t urinate on her own or control her bowels. She was so little and helpless, we had to help her.

Kathy brought this little girl home and through much trial and error, her rehabilitation has been a great success. Rein is now totally mobile!

Although she had to wear diapers for a few months, Kathy now stimulates her to pee and poo so Rein can get on with her busy day.

Kathy can easily show a potential adopter how to do this, so you can also have a normal life with Rein.

And as Kathy says, "It's so worth it."

"She is truly a special girl with so many special qualities. You have to meet her to fully appreciate her. She does everything a kitten should do."

Just the fact that she went from not being able to move her back end at all to running around the house like a normal kitten makes her a miracle in our eyes! She loves life, loves her foster mom, and loves her feline foster siblings. We feel very privileged to be a part of her recovery.

Talk to us about the joy and satisfaction you get from special needs babies like Rein.

Zinnia

Age: 10 months

Gender: Spayed female

Breed: DSH, tortoiseshell

Health: Excellent, snap test done on mom, negative, dewormed, vaccinations up to date, spayed.

Zinnia is a quiet little lady. But she does well with other cats, dogs and small children. She is on the shy side so she would need time to adjust to a new environment and people. She does love affection when she asks for it (typical tortie).

Parsnip

Age: 10 months

Breed: DSH

Colour: Ginger tabby

Gender: neutered male

Health: FIV/FeLV negative, Vaccinations up to date. Parsnip has a chronic upper respiratory condition, but that doesn't slow him down at all and can be managed with medication when he has a flare up.

Good with other cats: Yes

Good with other dogs: yes

Good with small children: unsure, but being young he would probably adapt.

Parsnip is a pretty chill cat. He can fall asleep just about anywhere - hard kitchen table, even a bag of dog food makes a great bed, according to Parsnip.

Parsnip does seem to always have a runny nose. But he's been vetted for it, and this may just be a holdover from when he was so sick. Otherwise, he runs, plays, and sleeps just like any other kitten.

Gender: Spayed female

Breed: DSH, Tabby

Health: Excellent, snap test done on mom, which was negative, vaccinations up to date, spayed, dewormed.

Yarrow tends to be a bit shy to start, but then she does this amazing thing with kids! She just seems to connect with them on their level. She is good with other cats, dogs and great with small children.
