Meet Sylvester
Sylvester came to us from a rescue in Florida.  Some one had found him injured in a parking lot and took him to animal control.  Animal Control has an agreement that if a cat comes in with an ear tip they will call the local feral cat rescue to pull them out.  That ear tip saved his life.  The rescue took him to the vet for treatment of his injuries.  He was also tested and found to be Leukemia positive.  The rescue had a temporary foster home but needed a place for him to go.  He could not be put back on the street. One of our wonderful supporters offered to drive him to us. He is a super sweet fellow who is enjoying having a soft bed, a full belly, and being safe. He still has some injuries to deal with.  He has a large hernia that was not repaired and is also anemic from hemobart. We are treating the anemia and will revisit having his hernia repaired in a couple of weeks.  
CONTEST
We are competing with thousands of  non-profits for a prize package valued at $5,000 and need your help.  Please rate us if you have not already done it.  The deadline is 3/31/17
Sad Goodbyes
COLE
Cole began dramatically losing weight and his behavior showed that he was in pain. X-rays and ultra sound showed his abdominal cavity was full of tumors.  With him being Leukemia positive we knew we had reached the time to let him go.  He was a very sweet kitty and is missed by all that knew him.
Matthew
We knew when Matthew came to us he had pancreatic cancer and that his stay would not be long.  We had hoped it would be longer.  He was running a 105.5 fever, his abdomen was full of fluid, it was time to say goodbye. He was a very sweet fellow and is missed by all.
PLANTS THAT ARE HAZARDOUS FOR CATS AND HOW TO TREAT THEM
By Mandy Cooper
Cats will chew on plants, and because they love to climb and explore, it's difficult to keep plants out of their reach. Therefore, it you want to keep plants inside the house or let your cat outside, you need to be able to identify plants which are potentially dangerous. If in doubt, it's better to remove plants from your home. If a plant is poisonous, assume all parts of the plant are poisonous. Many toxic plants are irritants causing inflammation of the skin, mouth, stomach, etc.     READ MORE
Hypertension in Cats
If your cat goes blind over night, rush to the vet!  Your cat may have hypertension.  Make sure your vet checks your cats blood pressure, it is not standard. Many vets do not have the equipment to check it. Mandy wrote a good article for you regarding  hypertension, the cause, etc.  READ MORE HERE
