Our thoughts go out to you affected by the recent hurricanes!   We hope you and your families are safe! We feel helpless that there is nothing we can do to help each of you personally!   Sending you hugs and prayers.  We hope your situation improves quickly! We were very lucky and the hurricane turned away from us.  We hoped it would go east into the ocean but as you know that did not happen :(   We did get a few inches of rain and wind but nothing to complain about. Thank you everyone that contacted us to see if the cats were ok. We are doing a fund raiser to help other animal organizations on the ground in the affected area.  They have taken on a huge responsibility and expense to help animals affected by the horrible floods.  Many of their shelters were damaged and must be repaired.
We want to do something to help others:  100% of all net proceeds will be donated to 4 animal rescues who are on the ground making a difference in saving flood animals.  We would like to have YOUR input on who it is donated to. When you buy a shirt, please send me an email (alana@blindcatrescue.com)  with your recommendation. We will put them all in a pot and draw out 4 charities. We will post a copy of the donations after the end of the campaign.
WINTER STORM SURVIVAL KIT FOR CATS
It is almost October!  Where has the year gone? Winter and the holidays are  just around the corner!   Time for you to start making sure you have your Winter Storm Survival kit for cats! If there is one consistent truth about weather, it is that it is almost always inconsistent and unplanned for. The first sign of stormy Winter weather coming may be too late to start planning. Fall is a better time. Your Winter storm kit may be stored in a large closet, a basement, an attached garage, or an unused room. Although a shed or a detached garage may have more room, if you are snowed in, you may not be able to get through for the needed supplies quickly enough, if at all. This article is written for a worst-case scenario: a major winter storm lasting a week or longer. If its ferocity approaches the massive storm of February, 2011, you can expect blizzards, hail, snow and ice, and lengthy power outages. You will not be able to travel, so prepare to hunker down at home and ride it out.     CONTINUE READING HERE
Seizures In Cats
Meet Bunny.  Bunny has seizures. What is a seizure?  A seizure starts as a result of abnormal, excessive electrical activity in the brain. This is the same for humans or animals. “Epilepsy.com says, “Seizures may take many forms.” The outward effect can vary from uncontrolled, violent, jerking movements (tonic-clonic seizure) to a subtle loss of momentary awareness (absence seizure), which may go unnoticed by others. The syndrome of recurrent, unprovoked seizures is termed epilepsy. Seizures can be brought on by either primary brain disorders, or they may develop as a result of a process outside the brain. Conditions like low blood sugar, liver failure (when it leads to “hepatic encephalopathy”) or conditions that make blood thicker (as happens with high red blood cell or protein levels), are examples of processes outside the brain that may cause seizures. In addition, certain cardiac events look a lot like seizures, but don’t predictably alter the brain’s electrical activity in the same way. Temporary loss of consciousness (syncope) or collapse, associated with some heart rhythm disturbances, can be very hard to distinguish from seizures in some cases.” Seizures are less common in cats.  Approximately 2 % of all cats are affected by some seizure disorder. Seizures can look scary.  Bunny has full grand-mal seizures.  A full loss of consciousness and uncontrolled muscle activity (tremors, twitching, and convulsions). There is treatment to control the symptoms. If you see your cat having a seizure or suspect your cat may be having a mild seizure take them to the vet immediately! You may read more about diagnosis and treatment  HERE
I am sure you have seen their commercials. Did you know that Chewy will donate $20 to the cats the first time you place an order using our link?  They have great customer service, good prices and quick shipping.  We use them for shopping too :)  CLICK HERE
Something to make you smile!
I know everyone is so exhausted at all the bad news out there. Floods, hurricanes, just too much over load.  And for you that are still living it I know how exhausted you are with it all.  (We lived through Matthew last year with almost a week of no electricity, we do understand your pain!)  We wanted to give you a cute JibJab of the cats to make you smile.  Hope you enjoy it!

We are very grateful to our wonderful eBay sellers and buyers for sharing so generously of their auctions with the cats.  We hope you will check out all their wonderful auctions  HERE
RIP Ginny
Sweet old Ginny.  She came to us from animal control after her family dropped her off at animal control to be destroyed. She had many medical problems that we did our best to manage.  She showed she was in a lot of pain and it was time to let her go.  The pain meds were not helping.  She spent her last day laying on her big pillow.  The staff spent extra time with her and saying their good byes.  We had the vet come to the shelter so she did not have to endure a scary car ride.
She died peacefully in my arms.  She was such a sweet old girl who go along with everyone.  We will think of her with fondness.
Meet Sissy
Sissy is the sister of Loki & Thor.  She was finally trapped and came to join her brothers. She is leukemia positive.  She is still adjusting.  You may watch her on her MeShare camera Building 2, Room 2. Melinda,  one of our awesome team members nick named the 3 of them. Hissy, Pissy and now Sissy!  Hope that made you smile :)
