Blind Cat News
Pets can get pregnant as young as 4 months old.  Research shows that dogs and cats can safely be spayed and neutered at 2 months of age or 2 pounds of weight.  (I have always wondered why on earth some vets say wait until a cat is 6 months to be spayed!) There is a very interesting article about spay and neutering here: http://cattime.com/spay-neuter-health-benefits-to-your-cat.html If your pet has not been spayed,  here are a few links to affordable spay/neuter clinics: http://www.petsmartcharities.org/adopt-a-pet/find-a-spayneuter-clinic http://www.lovethatcat.com/spayneuter.html#states http://friendsofanimals.org/programs/spaying-neutering
These list do not list them all.  I would personally suggest you go to petfinder.com and contact some of your local shelters and ask them where the spay/neuter clinics are in your area. Also in some areas if you receive social service programs you may also qualify for free spay and neuter services, contact your local animal control facility or health department. You may have to do a little bit of work to find affordable spay/neuter services,  but you have to commit to being part of the solution and not part of the problem by fixing your pet :)
February is National Spay/Neuter Awareness Month.
We are selling these wonderful spay/neuter shirts as a fund raiser to help us spay/neuter 1500 homeless cats this year. We hope you will get one :)  100% of the net proceeds will be used to spay or neuter a homeless animal.  Here is the link: https://www.booster.com/bcrfix1500

Cat Update
His biopsy came back as not cancer,  but we are still not sure what it actually is.  The specialist had our vet pulled blood and send out another test,  we are not thinking maybe fungal?   We will know next week
Took Jake back to Raleigh for an endoscope but he had developed an upper respiratory infection so came home on antibiotics,  we are supposed to go back and try again late February.
Licorice developed a sudden eye ulcer destroying his cornea  (that is not uncommon with a detached retina, it is not getting as good of blood flow)  The vet felt it would be easier on him to just remove the eye since he can not see out of it than having to have medication etc put in the eye 6-8 times a day.  We agreed,  so he will be home Monday.
We are very grateful to our wonderful supporters that share so generously with the cats.    Nancy made this beautiful hand made quilt for us to auction off. http://tinyurl.com/bcrquilt
