Our friends at Halo and Freekibble are breaking the big news we've been dying to share! Thanks to their generosity, Kitten Associates, is going to be the recipient of 2,500 cans of lovely grain free cat food-or almost 900 POUNDS of food! We're not only beyond thrilled to know we can feed our foster kittens for the rest of the year, but we'll also share our bounty with another local rescue! Stay tuned for photos of the arrival-due in on Tuesday, along with more about this marvelous company and their devotion to helping rescues and shelters across the Country!
It's been a little over a month since King (Arthur) was rescued off the streets. This amazing creature survived a serious birth defect leaving him to hobble along on his front paws-his back paws never developed. His back legs are a and inch or two short and end in either a callus or a partial paw pad.
King, the day he was rescued.
But King is a survivor and nothing gets him down. While in foster care King has thrived. His once filthy coat is shiny and clean. His body is no longer too thin now that he's put on some weight. King's been to an Orthopedic Vet and given a clean bill of health. There's really nothing we need to do other than find King a great home.
King's amazing transformation. Yes, it IS the same cat!
King loves three things: People, Belly Rubs & Other Cats. We want to find him a very special home with all of those things, plus this home MUST have either wall to wall carpeting OR LOTS of big area rugs. King cannot easily get around on wood, ceramic or vinyl floors. The thicker surface of a rug or carpeting allows him to walk on all fours, instead of only on his front legs.
If you're interested in giving a VERY sweet, loving, 1 year old kitty a home, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Even though we don't' have a shelter and know it will be a long time before we can find him a home, once we heard about a kitty with no hind paws, living on the streets in a bad neighborhood, we had to jump into action.
Meet King Arthur-or King, as we call him. He's a little over a year old and has had a very tough life living at a Palette Factory. We don't know if he's deformed or survived a terrible accident, but this cat has been getting around on his front legs for most of his life.
When we rescued, King yesterday, we thought he would be feral, but turns out he was just the opposite. All this cat wants is love, a safe place to live and some good food.
We're grateful that we can provide that for King, but due to his condition we're going to have to get him to a Vet for tests and x-rays and possibly a specialist or two. We want King to have the best life possible and to be comfortable and pain-free and we're hoping you can help!
If you'd like to help with King's upcoming Vet care, and care for another kitty at the Palette factory we'd like to rescue, please use the Chipin, above. Your donation is Tax Deductible. Thank you!
