|Maddie is a 5 month old beautiful
longhair kitten with quite the extraordinary disability. You see, Maddie
suffered some sort of crushing injury to her spine when she was about 3
weeks old. This has prevented her from using her back legs but doesn't
stop her from getting where she wants to go! Maddie is a spunky,
playful, loving little girl who enjoys playing with dogs and cats alike.
Climbing onto the couch and into the cat tree are among Maddie's finer
moments, proving that she refuses to allow her disability to define her.
She is very well behaved for her daily
baths and grooming sessions, which are a requirement as she isn't able
to use a litter box and has little to no control over her excretory
functions. Her adoptive family would need to learn how to help Maddie
express her bladder (your vet can show you this quite easily, and she is
used to this in foster care) and perhaps wear diapers to help keep her
She is currently pretty small for diapers
and eventually wriggles out of even the tiniest of sizes, but she is
very patient during the putting-on and taking-off process. She has a
very loud motor-like purr and gets very excited to see her people. She
will require a patient and understanding home but I promise -- you won't
regret adopting Maddie!

||SPECIAL NEEDS: Meet Beeber!
Someone in my neighborhood contacted me stating they had a cat who had
problems with his eyes, and they needed help. When I arrived and saw his
eyes I knew without a doubt nothing could be done; however, I took him
to the veterinarian who confirmed my fears.
He also tested FIV positive but don't let
this scare you! FIV can only be passed through cat-to cat transmission
usually through a bite wound or a scratch, and Beeber has never bit or
scratched, and occasional transmission at the time of birth. I contacted
the owner to let them know the outcome, and they said they didn't want
him back, so I took him in. He's a wonderful 1-2 year old neutered male
who is up to date on his rabies shot. He sees shadows and does very well
in the home. He is super loving and very friendly. He honestly doesn't
let his vision problem affect his life. His personality shines every day
in how sweet he can be, and he shows how even with a disability you can
persevere and lead a wonderful and happy life!
Please contact Dawna Dove at 540-820-3358
if you are interested in providing Beeber a "fur"ever loving home.
We are located in Rockingham County/Harrisonburg, VA
||PERRY - Perry is a light
orange tabby kitten close to a year old. He doesn't mind entertaining
himself, but enjoys company for a nice scratch behind the ears and
cuddles. When it comes to relationships, he's a patient guy who doesn't
leap in paws first, if you know what I mean. With a little time he will
bond with you through playtime. Perry loves to explore and find new
toys. He's around a year old and will bring you years of happiness. Perry
is positive for Feline Leukemia. Please do your research before
adopting. Perry has been retested and is FLV/FIV NEGATIVE! All adoptions include spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip,
and testing. Please contact email@example.com
||DEVIN - Devin is an adorable
orange tabby kitten overflowing with love to share! He is around 6months
old and knows how to make a toy out of anything: pencils, post-it notes,
potatoes. If you're looking for some laughs and someone to liven up the
party, think about inviting Devin. He is an adventurous cat, but he'll
always make time for cuddles! Devin has tested positive for Feline
Leukemia. Please do your research before adopting. All adoptions
include spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip, and testing. Please
Jack and Diane were abandoned as babies on the side of the
road. One of our doctors rescued them. Jack and Diane are now
approximately 16 weeks old. Both kittens are siblings. They are
spayed/neutered and fully vaccinated. Sadly, when we had them at the
hospital for routine veterinary care, they both tested positive for
This means they must live in a home with no other cats. There is a
slim chance they could develop FIP which is fatal. However, chances are
very, very good they will live a normal life. The virus is not
contagious to any other species but cats.
Loving Touch Animal Hospital in Stafford County, VA, will provide
free veterinary care for a year to anyone who adopts these babies.
These poor babies need someone with a big heart and a loving indoor
home to allow them to have a family for Christmas and for always. There
is no greater calling than saving the lives of two innocent creatures.
Could you be that special person with a huge heart for animals?

- May Need to be OUTDOOR Cats
||Lucas is a beautiful, sweet, mature,
neutered, flamepoint siamese. He is partially incontinent from a tail-pull
injury when he got outside several years ago. He has nerve damage at the
base of his spine. His tail is intact, but he can only lift it partway.
The vet felt leaving his tail intact would be fine, although he can
probably not feel or move the lower 2/3. He has improved a lot since his
initial injury; however, it appears he will never recover full use of his
tail or bladder control. He's a wonderful cat and otherwise is completely
healthy according to tests that were done to check. He is good about
pooping in the litter box. He just pees sometimes in the "wrong"
He's pretty easygoing. He tolerates dogs
and gets along well with most other cats. He loves attention, and he'll
"talk" to you and give you head bumps and "kisses". He
really wants to be outdoors to enjoy the sunshine and roll in the grass.
I'd love to find him a home where he can be safely outdoors either in a
safe yard or a large enclosure. Contact me if you think he's a good fit
for you, and you would truly love and take good care of him for the rest
of his days. I don't want him to be a reclusive barn cat, but a part of a
loving family, which is what he truly loves.
If you are interested in Lucas, email me at
email@example.com . I am in
the Houston area, but willing to drive a reasonable distance for the right
||This is Queenie, a very sweet
girl who has had a rough time. She had a home but her tail was
injured and she suffered nerve damage and her tail had to be amputated.
Unfortunately due to the nerve damage she can no longer empty her
bladder on her own and it needs to be manually expressed every 12 hours.
She’s such a good girl about it though and doesn’t mind one bit and it’s
very easy to do.
The nerve damage
has also caused problems with her feeling when she has a bowel movement
and she doesn’t always hit the litterbox. Needless to say she
needs a very special home to understand her health needs, but she will
repay you with her sweetness & unconditional love :) She doesn’t
mind being around other cats that are calm and respect her space, but
she is very afraid of dogs.
If you would like to have this special
girl in your life or have any questions, please contact Wendy with HART
||Gussie positively adores people
and is a total love bug extraordinaire. She has been in foster for about
two years because she has some special needs. Gussie has received expert
vet care and everything a small rescue could provide for her, but her
living situation is far from ideal. Gussie lives in a clean basement
since she has some incontinence issues through no fault of her own. They
are due to an early illness and possible tail injury. Her foster mom
loves her very much--anyone would--but she can no longer keep Gussie
with her. AFL has made arrangements to move Gussie to Best Friends
Animal Sanctuary in Utah just as soon as they have space for her--she is
a very lucky girl because Best Friends is an amazing place and she'll
get loads of attention, which Gussie just loves! We're not sure exactly
how long it will take, but we know she's on three different waiting
lists at Best Friends. Meanwhile, our Gussie needs a new foster
home--just a place where she can be safe and warm and be with people
sometimes. Do you have a room where Gussie might be able to wait for her
turn at the sanctuary? She'll reward you with more love and appreciation
than you can begin to imagine!
|If you can help Gussie with
a temporary foster home (or even a forever one--a girl can dream,
right?) please contact Animal Friends of Lansdowne right away. Gussie
needs a break and she's counting on you!

Cats - Sight problems
||Arbie is a special needs kitty
who was rescued as a feral kitten by FURR (Feline Urgent Rescue and
Rehab Waxhaw, NC) along with her mom and two brothers. When she was
trapped she was in bad shape, extremely underweight for her age and
looked like she may or may not make it. After significant vet care, lots
of love and patience, Arbie survived, gained weight and became a real
sweetheart. Unfortunately, when Arbie was going through her routine spay
surgery she crashed and died on the table. The vet in a panic was able
to bring her back but she was without oxygen to her brain for 3-5
After much vet care and lots of love from
FURR, Arbie is now able to function as a normal kitten with the
exception of her being blind. She also has lost her ability to use the
litter box though she does well using training pads. Arbie would do best
as a single kitty in a home that is able to give her lots of love and
attention. She has been spayed, had all of her shots and tested negative
for feline aids, leukemia and heartworm.
If you would like to see how special she
is, please call Terry Schultz for more information at 864-483-2444.
||Kitty Kat is located at
Williamson County Animal Center just south of Nashville in
Franklin, TN. She is a gentle and graceful eight year old who is
blind. Kitty Kat would love a quiet home. Our shelter volunteers are
utterly devoted to this sweet cat. She loves to be held and petted.
