Update on Spencer: He was adopted on Saturday, August 3rd!

I have been a foster for MeoowzResQ for over three years. During that time, I cared for hundreds of cats and kittens until they were placed in their forever homes. A while back, I started taking kitties that are sick and caring for them until they are well and ready for adoption. Most fosters aren’t able to give the kitties the isolation they need to avoid exposing other animals in the home. Many don’t have the time or the desire to try to administer medications. After the kitties go to their first adoption event, if they are not adopted, they are moved to another foster so I can take in more sick kitties. 

Orange County Animal CareToday, I went to Orange County Animal Care to pull a little three and a half month old seal point Siamese mix with upper respiratory infection. Apparently, he had been adopted once but was returned because he had a cold and his new owners safe in the car on the way homedidn’t want their current cats to catch it!! Please, if you are going to adopt a pet, be prepared to care for its medical needs regardless of other animals in the home.

Spencer Rescued

Spencer is very sweet and will be a wonderful addition to someone’s family when he is well. He has already been neutered, has tested negative for FIV/FELV, and is microchipped. He has been treated for worms and fleas and prior to adoption, his vaccinations will be up to date.

Here he is making biscuits in his new bed as soon as he arrived here. He is purring up a storm.

Spencer sound asleep

It didn’t take long before he was sound asleep. He will be on medication only for the next few days since he has already been on them for a few days at the shelter. Barring any setbacks, he should be ready for adoption in 10 days to two weeks. If you are interested in adopting him, tell us in the comments!

Helping Sick Kittens

Gatsby - rescue kitten

Savvy Pet Care is currently caring for sick kittens for MeoowzResQ. These kitties were saved from a high kill shelter, where, due to their illness, they were destined to be euthanized.

As is common for kittens coming from shelters, they had upper respiratory infections (URI) and needed to be isolated from healthy kittens. URI is highly contagious and young kittens are very susceptible.

These sick kittens were also very underweight. At eight weeks, they each only weighed about a pound. The proper weight for a kitten is about one pound per month of age, so an 8-week old kitten should weigh about two pounds.

We gave these babies a safe, warm place to stay and proper amounts of food. We administered their prescribed medications. Now that they are over their URI and have put on some weight, they are ready to be spayed and neutered. They will go this Friday to Pro Pet Fix, a great low-cost spay/neuter clinic in Fullerton. They will be ready for adoption events the following week.

Fostering

If you have ever considered fostering cats or kittens, we highly recommend MeoowzResQ. They provide all supplies while you are fostering. All their kitties are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and flea treated prior to adoption and come with a free vet exam. Some are microchipped. MeoowzResQ holds adoption events every weekend and uses other avenues such as craigslist, Petfinder, and Facebook to find adopters for the hundreds of cats and kittens they save every year.
