Subject: Happy (Foster) Mother's Day

Mother's Day came early for For Paws with the discovery of three kittens dumped on campus last Friday. (They were left in a box addressed to For Paws.) The kittens were dehydrated, thin, covered in fleas, and suffering from upper respiratory infections (first photo). Look at their progress after three days of meds, good food, and lots of TLC (second photo). We can't waste time or energy whining about the kitten dumper; our efforts must go into helping these kittens achieve maximum adoptability and then finding good homes for them. We'll keep you posted on their progress over the coming weeks. Thanks for your support.

We're busy with the campus kittens, but we found time to help a good neighbor. This kind woman (who has many burdens) rescued a little tortie after the kitten's two siblings were killed. She tamed the kitten and trapped the feral and pregnant mom. For Paws got Torta and mama Mancha spayed, and the kitten went immediately into the SCAT program at Petsmart. Mancha went back to the neighborhood, never to produce any more kittens. Thanks to your support, we're able to help the good Samaritans in our community.

Although the kittens still spend nights in their kennel, by day they have a whole room to play in. And play they do until they drop! Little Puma is completely zonked out, while Primo can at least keep his eyes open. Meanwhile, Princess enjoys some one-on-one time with Sunny, official kitten socializer. We're having a great time! Thanks for your support,

Princess, Primo, and Puma are growing (all over 2 lbs.) and have developed distinct personalities. Princess shows the most inclination to be a lap cat; Primo thinks he's a race horse; and Puma is still a shy little girl very attached to big brother Primo. All have healthy appetites, and they love to play. They'll get their second set of vaccinations at the end of May, and we'll ask the vet to determine when they can get fixed. Thanks for your support.

Subject: A Blast from the Past

We got a call from the Universal City Animal Shelter about a cat they had picked up that had a microchip linking the cat to For Paws. (Some years ago we did microchip every cat we fixed until the cost of microchips grew to be prohibitive.) The microchip number matched a neighborhood kitten (Fuzz) we fixed in 2009. How did that feline end up in Universal City five years later? And more importantly, would we have to retrieve the cat from the across-town shelter and return it to…where? Fortunately, someone in Universal City was eager to adopt the cat, so all's well that ends well. We've got our hands full with kittens and just can't take on blasts from the past. Thanks for your support.

Subject: Talking About Cats

I really enjoyed talking to this group about our For Paws programs. They were very positive about our cat work on campus and in the neighborhood. And I think they'll be another outlet for our sock cats fundraising. They instantly bought the seven cats I had with me and also made donations: $170.00! That money will go toward fixing the kittens we have on hand. Thanks for your support.
