Saturday, April 2, 2016 – We received a call from Carol, one of the rescuers we work with regularly to help save pets. Carol was at a local home and there were cats everywhere. She could see several cats that were living outdoors, most were friendly, and some were very sick. She knew she had to help so she called us right away.

In order to help a special group of cats like this we need to have separate designated space where they can be kept together and isolated from other cats. Our concerns are to be able to watch them for contagious diseases and to be able to provide the best quality of care, that these cats have obviously never received.

As our new friends started to our arrive, our animal care staff and volunteers made sure everything was ready. See some of their stories below and stay tuned at the bottom for updates on new arrivals…

KlarkeKlarke – 2 years old, male, black short hair, 9 lbs. – arrived at NEAS

4/4/16 went to vet for neuter surgery.

4/6/16 Klarke is doing well. Is always eager for breakfast and expects his treats throughout the day! Recovering well from surgery.

4/6/16 Krystal is doing well. Still a little shy and would prefer to be curled up and quiet. Recovering well from surgery but needs a cone to prevent her from getting to her surgery site.

 

KlaudiaKlaudia – 8 months, female, tabby short hair, 3 lbs –

4/2/16 at 8 months old and only 3 lbs Klaudia is just a little peanut. We were very concerned about Klaudia right away at arrival. She appeared to have a sever upper respiratory infection. Her eyes were swollen shut and she was very congested. We started nebulizer treatments and antibiotics right away to help with congestion. She was a sweetie through it all even when we discovered that she had a severe ear infection that was actually causing her head to tilt to one side because it was so painful. Klaudia received her initial medical work of testing for Feline Leukemia and FIV, treated for fleas, received first vaccines and preventive dewormers.

4/3/16 Despite her illness and medications, Klaudia was very interactive and looking for love.

4/6/16 Klaudia is so sweet, purring when visitors come in the room and eager for affection. Her eyes are still watery and red but discharge is clearing up. We continue to treat her painful ear. She’ll need to wait to be spayed until her cold and ear infection get better.

Karma Karma.babyKarma – 2 years, female, black and white long hair, 8 lbs. –

4/2/16 It was quickly discovered that Karma was very pregnant! She was a little reserved so after initial medical work of testing for Feline Leukemia and FIV, treatment for ear mites, treated for fleas, received first vaccines and preventive dewormers Karma was settled into a quiet area to reduce her stress of coming into a new environment. Later in the evening when our staff came back to check on her we noticed that Karma was in active labor and babies were due to arrive any time! By the end of the evening Karma had 2 babies and everyone was doing well.

4/3/16 We continued to monitor Karma to make sure her delivery was complete and there were no complications. She is a good mom feeding and taking care of babies like a natural. She prefers not to be disturbed and constantly keeps a watchful eye on her newborns.

4/6/16 Mom and babies are doing great and should be ready to go to a foster home soon.

King – 2 years, male, tabby and white, short hair – shy and scared, likes to hide. King will let you pet him but can’t really understand why you want to so he will get a little extra time to settle in. King was neutered and received his initial round of medical care including testing for Feline Leukemia and FIV, treated for fleas, received first vaccines and preventive dewormers.

Klohie – 2 years, female, tabby, short hair – Klohie is very shy and cowers. We are slowly showing her what love means. She was spayed and received her initial round of medical care including testing for Feline Leukemia and FIV, treated for fleas, received first vaccines and treated for parasites.

4/11/16 – Update –

Klondike, Klarke, King, Kourtney and Klohie are still recovering from surgery but are hoping to be ready to be adopted soon!

Kalvin – is still being treated for a cold and recovering from surgery.

Krystal is looking great and already has someone interested in adopting her.

Karma and babies – are relaxing in a great foster home for the next several weeks.

Klaudia – is at the vet today. Her cold and head tilt was not improving so she went in to get x-rays of her skull to make sure there wasn’t anything of bigger concern going on. It turns out that Klaudia had a polyp growing in her ear. Our vet was able to remove it and will send it out for a biopsy to make sure we aren’t worried about any cancer cells. We’re all keeping our fingers crossed that this little sweetie is okay.

4/26/16 – Update –

Klohie – After completing her treatment for parasites, Klohie is ready and waiting to be adopted.

Kylie, Kim, and Kendall – 3 kittens about 12 weeks old arrived from this group. They are currently in foster care being treated for colds and learning how to love.

Karma and baby – are doing well in foster care.

Klaudia – is recovering well from her surgery. Thankfully her biopsy came back as a benign polyp. She still has a tilted head which we will be keeping an eye on for signs of improvement. As Klaudia’s cold started to improve it was discovered that she has a corneal ulcer in one of her eyes. She is receiving ointment in her eye a couple times a day and thoroughly enjoying her warm compresses that our staff apply along with the ointment.

Klondike, Krystal, Klarke, Kourtney, King, and Kalvin – have all been adopted and are enjoying their new families!

5/10/16 – Update –

All kittens and cats have now been adopted except for Karma. She is in foster care and will be spayed soon.

8/25/16 – Update –

Karma finally found her forever home! This cat was timid, shy, and scared for quite a while. She was so difficult to approach that visitors could not appreciate her gentle soul. With time and nurturing by our staff and volunteers, she learned to relax and a family decided she was the perfect fit.
