This week has been a dreadful week my friend. Piper fell ill and we had him at numerous vets including a speialist in Rhode Island. It appears our little fella had FIP and needed fluid removed from his chest twice and sub q fluids etc, we did this twice but his chest, lungs and liver filled again and there is no cure for FIP =( Not to mention the fear that went through us concerning the rest of our feline family and what this could mean for them. Sadly we said our good byes as I type you in tears Piper was put to rest last night buried in a wooden coffin my friend Brian made with his toys and blanket placed in the ground with his other toys and blanket and heart crystal and flowers and buried under a cedar tree in our meadow with a beautiful wooden cross Brian also made for us. I just held him and cried before he was laid to rest and I miss him so!! Webleached and cleaned and will monitor our guys and gals closely it is a low chance that they could contract it and we will believe in ALL healthy cats no negative thoughts of anythign different. I wanted so much for Piper to have a better life away from that feral colony and school and I guess for a short time he did. Take care.

I had orginally planned to beg for the mama to be. But when I saw all these inncent faces, oh hell, I'm begging for them all. Please look, if you know somebody send them the info (pictures are very helpful)  repost to your friends all in the hope that at least some of these get saved. Please remember a phone call does wonders. I can't remember if Barrow gasses but I do remember that pregnant dogs and puppies often don't die for a long long time I could never work at a place like this

THE FOLLOWING ANIMALS ARE MOSTLY “EXTRA URGENT” DUE TO THEIR BEING AT THE ANIMAL CONTROL AT OR BEYOND THEIR TYPICALLY ALLOTTED FIVE (5) DAYS AND/OR ARE OWNER SURRENDERED. THEY ARE THEREFORE SUBJECT TO LETHAL INJECTION AT ANY TIME.



RUN 2 – 06-191 F 1YR LAB/BOXER X – SPECIAL NOTICE TO RESCUES! This sweet young girl is PREGNANT and in need of help immediately! She is very quiet and gentle and will likely make a wonderful mother. She is now VERY large and starting to produce milk. An officer stated that they spared her last Wednesday in hopes that someone will be able to take this sweet girl and her family-to-be.

Could that be you?




RUN 4 – 06-204 AND 06-207 BOTH M 1YR GREAT PYRENEES X’S – What a site! A set of Great Pyr X twins! The third brother posted last week is no longer available. These two remaining have really perked up since my last visit, and they just need a BATH! Anyone from GA knows what our CLAY can do to the otherwise WHITE fur of an animal. These sweet guys really are white at the roots.

Promise!



RUN 5 – 06-194 F 6-9MO BOXER X – This is a petite, quiet, alert, beautiful little girl, ready to go home with you and be loved! Look at those pleading eyes. She would be an excellent choice! She has been my MySpace default picture for a while, and I have received many comments about her, but apparently there have been no takers! She loves affection and slapped her tail loudly on the concrete when I visited. I took a couple more (kind of silly!) pictures of her.

Adorable!






RUN 6 (was PEN 41) – 06-169 M 6-9MO LAB X – This adorable boy has been really lonely. During my last visit, I thought he was yelping in pain until I came closer and realized he was just trying desperately to attract some help. I tried my best to soothe him during my visit, but unfortunately, my visit had an end. This time, I was glad to see that the officers had moved him to a larger run with two other puppies, and he seemed to be much happier.

BUT he is STILL URGENT! HELP HIM, PLEASE!




RUN 12 – 06-031 M 6MO LAB / POINTER X – Sweet boy “Dude” was at the shelter last week, but there was some confusion as to whether or not he was adoptable, especially since he is on the side away from the public, so I didn’t post for him. He IS adoptable, however, and his time is up.

He is on the back side due to space issues, NOT due to temperament! He is a very friendly boy!



PEN 37 – 06-179 AND 06-180 BOTH M 6WKS LAB X’S – (179 is light and 180 is brown.) These little babies, likely siblings, belong on a calendar or magazine. They are CUTE, CUTE! They are also quiet, gentle, and play very well together. Can you believe no one has stepped up for them yet? There must be someone out there who is moved by these pictures and is able to help.

Maybe that person is you!






PEN 2 – 06-112 F 2MO CALICO – This little girl wants to live! The officers have given this precious girl just a few more days to find a home. She was reaching for me and meowing loudly again this week.

What a sweetheart! Can someone please help her?




PEN 16 –06-129 F, 06-130 M, AND 06-131 F ALL 5WK – These beautiful babies are now without their mother. They need a loving home immediately! The 129 female is a calico, 131 is a dilute calico, and the brother is black / white. They are DMH or DLH.

This is a very sweet, good-looking group!




PEN 13 – 06-198 F 2-3YR; 06-199 M 8WK; 06-200 M 8WK; 06-201 F 8WKS - Mom and the two brothers are black / white, and the sister is torti. All are DSH and very sweet. They are now very urgent as their time is up! Please consider this family.





PEN 17 – 06-212 F APPROX. 10WK DSH AND 06-228 F 8WK DLH – Sweet girlie 212 is a pretty orange color and seems playful and friendly. She is sharing the pen with 228.

What a pretty black kitten! Her fur is soft and fuzzy, and she is ready to PLAY! Both girls are now very urgent as their time is up! Please consider these two!



THE FOLLOWING ANIMALS ARE NEW SINCE THE LAST POST BUT MAY STILL BE “EXTRA URGENT” DUE TO THEIR BEING AT THE ANIMAL CONTROL AT OR BEYOND THEIR TYPICALLY ALLOTTED FIVE (5) DAYS AND/OR ARE OWNER SURRENDERED. THEY ARE THEREFORE SUBJECT TO LETHAL INJECTION AT ANY TIME.



RUN 6 – 06-252 M AND 06-253 F BOTH 2+MO LAB X – These blond, fuzzy pups are likely siblings. The female has a bit more of a white stripe down her nose. Both are quiet and friendly.






RUN 8 – 06-249 M 1-2YR LAB X – This poor boy may be passed up by many who will never know what love he appears to be capable of giving. Why? He’s blind. But remember, love is, too…. As I crouched down for a visit, he instantly turned towards my voice, and he came close for a sniff. He was not startled when I reached in to pat his head, and he even began to smile at me. What a calm, gentle spirit…. (I have fostered a blind dog before who did very well at learning his way around! I have heard that most adapt adequately, unless you’re the type to rearrange the furniture often.) I really didn’t want to leave him. As I stood and stepped away towards the next run, he diligently ran his nose from side to side and up and down “looking” for me. Maybe in the near future his search for some company will be more fruitful. PLEASE consider this very special soul. He has so much to offer; please don’t be one of the ones who pass him by.








RUN 9 – 06-231 F 6MO LAB X – This sweet girl is a pretty, shiny black with a bit of white on her chest and feet.

She is calm, alert, quiet, and very friendly! A great choice!



RUN 9 – 06-230 F 6MO SHEPHERD / RIDGEBACK X – This darling girl appears to enjoy cuddling! Most of the time I visited her run, she pressed herself up against the door to be as close as possible. She also gave me lots of kisses and looked up longingly at me.

What a beautiful spirit this one has!




RUN 10 – 06-256 AND OTHERS – EIGHT PUPS 8WKS LAB / SHEPHERD X – Wow! OCTUPLETS! Three pups are brown and three are black. Some have longer, fuzzier fur than others, but ALL are extremely adorable and deserving of a loving home.

Can you give one or more of them such a place?









RUN 11 – 06-286 M 4-5MO RETREIVER X – This red and black pooch is extremely friendly and has a good bit to say! I was quite taken with his fur texture, as I found it to be some of the smoothest and softest I’ve ever felt.

What a wonderful boy he’d be to snuggle up to! Please consider!




RUN 20 – 06-265 M 6MO LAB / BULLDOG X – This boy is very handsome! He also appears fairly calm and quiet. Due to space issues, he is in a run away from the public, so he may not receive too much exposure.

Please inquire about this special boy!



RUN 22 – 06-266 F 2YR TERRIER X – This little brindle darling is only 20 lbs, which is perfect for many types of living arrangements. She has a very slight build with big, expressive eyes and tall ears that make her appear alert and friendly. Unlike many small terriers, however, she is very quiet! This little angel would love to go home.

Can you take her?




PEN 1 – 06-215 AND KITTENS 06-216 TO 06-220 – Mom 215 is a black DSH 1-2YR, and her TINY kittens are only 1WK. There are five. One is black, two are cream, and two are gray. I watched her nurse and groom the babies a bit, and she appears to be a very gentle and attentive mother. She also enjoyed some attention from me.

Someone please consider this sweet family!




PEN 5 – 06-287 AND 06-288 BOTH YOUNG M DLH – These brothers are beautiful and friendly!


PEN 6 – 06-278 F 2YR DSH – This pretty black cat appears friendly and sweet!


PEN 7 – 06-276 F 1YR – This girl is a lovely, sweet, gray tiger.

Her markings are very bold, and she is extremely affectionate!



PEN 8 – 06-277 F 2YR – This tiger girl has a good bit of white on her chest, which makes for a unique appearance! She seems very sweet and alert.





PEN 9 – 06-247 F DSH – This pretty gray tiger is a friendly girl! She’s ready to play!


PEN 14 – 06-279 F 2YR DSH – Here is another pretty, friendly little tiger girl, ready to go home!


PEN 15 – 06-275 F 2YR – This sweet tiger girl has some white areas. She appears very nice but perhaps a bit shy.




PEN 18 – 06-222 AND 06-223 BOTH M 6WK – Number 222 is brown tiger, and 223 is an orange tabby. Both of these boys appear friendly and ready to go home! They are very sweet.








PEN 21 – 06-232 AND 06-233 BOTH F 3MO – Number 232 is DLH, and 233 is DSH. Both little girls are torti, which is very striking! They are playful and sweet and kept reaching out of the pen for me.





PEN 22 – 06-281 F, 06-238 F, 06-282 M, 06-284 M, AND 06-285 F ALL 6WK DMH – This cute family (although 238 may have been placed with the siblings) is mostly black, but number 284 has white feet, and 285 is torti.

They are very young, sweet, and fuzzy!




PEN 23 – 06-208 F 2YR DSM – This sweetheart wants to go home! She is a beautiful, rich, shiny shade of black.




PEN 24 – ID#? SEX? DSH – This adult cat is black and white and appears fairly young and sweet. Please contact the shelter for additional information.

Ella

Ella is being as sweet and brave as ever. She had another EKG and Ultrasound on 6-19-08 and is going in for another procedure called a Nasal Flush on 7-10-2008. This will allow the vets to analyze the discharge coming out of her nose and the nasal drip that is causing her so much discomfort. We are going to attempt this first and see how it goes. ANY donation of any kind will help us a great deal in contnuing the life long care of this super sweet kitty who had the unfortunate luck of being previously in the hands of a horrible hoarder. Now she is loved SOOO much, we raised 3,000 last year for her major surgery I know we can make $350. Thanks for your help as always.

Much Love,

Kim, Liz and all the kitties ESPECIALLY...Ella!

Dear Animal Loving Friends, Many people have been horrified by the recent cruelty case in  Plainville,  CT in which Saverino Cruz took a power drill and brutally drilled several holes  into  a dog's head. http://plainville.ctcitizens.com/story/police-charge-two-men-animal-cruelty Our Companions has received many calls and emails from heart-sick animal lovers asking what they can do to help pursue justice for this unthinkable crime.  We have been in touch with the Plainville Animal Control Department and have been advised that there are ways that you can make a difference.  1) Attend the Hearing that is  scheduled  for Thursday, February 14th at 9AM at Bristol Superior Court. (131 North   Main Street, Bristol, CT  06010 ). A large show of public support to prosecute Mr. Cruz  to  the fullest extent of the law would help make an important statement about the serious nature of this crime. 2) Write to the Prosecutor Steven Preleski (same address as the Superior Court) and encourage him to seek the maximum punishment for this crime. 3) Consider adopting a pitbull. The Plainville Shelter has several loving pitbulls that are in desperate need of a home. You can help this very misunderstood and needy breed by opening your heart and home to a homeless dog.  Check out Lucky, just one of the many sweet and loving  pitbulls that desperately needs a good home.http://search.petfinder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=9935606
 
4) Please forward this email to your animal loving friends and encourage them to also take action! Thank you for caring and I hope you can attend the hearing on 2-14-08

Dear Animal Loving Friends, Many people have been horrified by the recent cruelty case in  Plainville,  CT in which Saverino Cruz took a power drill and brutally drilled several holes  into  a dog's head. http://plainville.ctcitizens.com/story/police-charge-two-men-animal-cruelty Our Companions has received many calls and emails from heart-sick animal lovers asking what they can do to help pursue justice for this unthinkable crime.  We have been in touch with the Plainville Animal Control Department and have been advised that there are ways that you can make a difference.  1) Attend the Hearing that is  scheduled  for Thursday, February 14th at 9AM at Bristol Superior Court. (131 North   Main Street, Bristol, CT  06010 ). A large show of public support to prosecute Mr. Cruz  to  the fullest extent of the law would help make an important statement about the serious nature of this crime. 2) Write to the Prosecutor Steven Preleski (same address as the Superior Court) and encourage him to seek the maximum punishment for this crime. 3) Consider adopting a pitbull. The Plainville Shelter has several loving pitbulls that are in desperate need of a home. You can help this very misunderstood and needy breed by opening your heart and home to a homeless dog.  Check out Lucky, just one of the many sweet and loving  pitbulls that desperately needs a good home. http://search.pet finder.com/petnote/displaypet.cgi?petid=9935606  4) Please forward this email to your animal loving friends and encourage them to also take action! Thank you for caring and I hope you can attend the hearing on 2-14-08

Jordy passed away unexpectedly today
Current mood: numb 

I am writing this brief blog to let you all now that Jordy (the beautiful black and white kitty in the profile pic with me) passed away today unexpectedly. Liz called me at the school I teach at and was crying saying she returned home from the gym to find him in our bedroom on the floor not breathing and Lady P. sitting close by. I rushed to the vet she brought him to but he had already passed. I hugged his body which was still warm to the touch and just cried and cried. I had just had him in my lap hours before playing with his fluffy feet and tail and giving him kisses as he hung out in the bathroom with me as I got ready for work each day. He had kissed Liz on the face before she had gone to the gym as he always did.I feel numb and such a strong sense of loss. People who don't understand losing a companion animal are beyond my own realm of thought, our companion animals are our family and losing Jordy to us is like losing a family member...I wish others understood this, some do...thankfully. We miss him so much already I can't explain..I have to go I can't write anymore right now...just wanted those of you who care to know.

Just wanted to give some details on Ella's progress. Ella was released to us on August 11th and arrived home around 7 pm. She is in good spirits and seems VERY happy to be back at home with her feline companions and us.
Ella has successfully completed major oral surgery by Dr. DeForge at Silver Sands Veterinary Clinic. All teeth except #304 #404 and #104/204 have had to be sacrificed because they were
involved in advanced sclerosing osteomyelitis. Her Feline Bartonella Test was a +1. Her basis diagnosis was end stage Advanced Periodontitis with multiple areas of sclerosing osteomyelitis and root abscessation. She under went the following:

Digital Oral X-ray Diagnostics
Osteoplasty based on digital oral x-ray diagnostics
Exodontics based on digital oral x-ray diagnostics with full thickness mucoperiosteal flap surgery
Guided tissue regeneration with bone alloplast (bone augmentation/grafting) 

Ella went for her recheck on 9-10-07 and she was given general inhalation anesthesia-analgesia with Dr. DeForge in order to remove sutures and check the bone grafting sites, and evaluate the Stomasurgery healing process. She is doing very well. Now we are concentrating on her URI and its chronic nature. The chronic respiratory infection is a concern and we were told to seek out a consultation from a specialist in Norwalk who will then consult with Dr DeForge. We are also going to consult with two other doctors, Dr. Lindsay in North Andover and Dr. Lambert here in CT and a close friend of Petals. The suggestion thus far is to have a transtracheal wash – cytology, culture and sensitive secretions conducted in order to determine actual cause of the chronic URI condition.

So far Ella has been much better in terms of her overall cooperation with her daily medications (5 meds some twice a day) in the morning and evening, as many of you know who have worked with Ella she is NOT a fan of meds and will let you know it in every possible way that she can. We have gotten past the initial “spazzing out” resulting in one or both of us bleeding and begging her to just take the med for her own benefit. Lol. She is so loving and sweet that it is difficult to get annoyed with her, and she is always rubbing on you, giving kisses and “trying” to meow the best she can. In time we are confident she will become used to some of her meds, she has the life long heart meds and oral rinses ahead of her. Her and Yum-Yum are best friends...good thing since both of them spend a good part of the day getting their meds together Lol.

We just want to thank ALL of you who have helped make this possible and Ella thanks you too. Without the donations we received we would not have gotten this far. We will keep you posted on her progress and any donations will be welcomed for the remaining medical costs to address her chronic URI and her 6-month review of her last 4 teeth. The Firstgiving Site is still up at
www.firstgiving.com/KimandLizhelpElla and we will welcome mailed donations as well to if you would rather do that, we were given a bit of a hard time by the Silver Sands Vet Center about third party checks and were told that in the future they would prefer we not do that and that their accountant was not happy, needless to say we were happy and so was Ella and we weren't thinking about their accountant. Lol. Again we thank you all so much for caring and sending your positive thoughts and prayers our way. You all know how much ALL our cats mean to us and that each of their medical, behavioral and emotional conditions are very different, as well as their levels of care, yet we love them ALL unconditionally…and now we know just how much others do too. Thanks again.
Much Love,Kim and Liz

Please pass this on for these sweet young kittens - otherwise they will be
suffocated in the Spalding gas chamber tomorrow - these trusting ones will die trying to breathe. We can help by networking - if we all pass this along, we can probably reach someone who can help but it takes a lot of people doing  lot of networking to get a few positive results. Thanks very much for your efforts.

Please send all questions to the shelter for best results/answers.
