Please Donate to Odin and Hubert Kittens

Update Sept 5/09

Odin and Hubert have done so well without their little legs, in fact better without them than with the stumps they had.

Now their 2 brothers Frodo and Oshii are still waiting to be adopted, they are special too, even though they are not special needs.

Frodo and Oshii are now 16 weeks old and getting big.  Soon they become the kittens that nobody wants to adopt because they have “grown out of cute”…bah humbug to that – they are still cute and will always be cute cause their personalities totally rock!

There is a photo of Frodo below, when he was 8 weeks old, I haven’t had a chance to take any new ones.  If you would like to meet please let us know.

UPDATE JULY 10/09

Today I decided to take the 2 kittens with missing feet into Canada West to have them checked out.  It just didn’t seem right that they were using their stumps and the stumps did not look healthy to me.  So I had a surgeon take a look, and little ODIN, the black kittens with 3 feet and a stump had to get surgery done right away.  His stump had become necrotic, and his leg needed to be amputated correctly.  Hubert, Odin’s brother also had his leg amputated, and they have found their forever homes – together!!

OdinPoor Little Odin, I feel so bad for him

We wanted to give these 2 babies a better life, and a happier life, some people would say it was crazy to do this, and maybe we should have just let them go, but we can’t and couldn’t.

The surgeries for these 2 babies will cost the rescue approximately $1200.  We are again hoping that the animal loving community will donate to this cause as they have with so many others.  Donations can be made directly to Canada West Veterinary Specialists by calling 604 473 4882.

Again we ask that questions about adoptions etc be directed to our Society via email, and not to the nice ladies in reception at Canada West – they already have so much to do everyday!

OdinOdin after Surgery – Adopted

The litter of kittens were born as 6.  They were very entangled with mom’s umbilical cords and had to make an emergency trip to the vet the minute they were born.  2 of the little kittens lost a foot.  Doesn’t slow them down though.  One of these kitties had the umbilical cord around his neck restriciting airflow, Otis is a little slower that the rest of the kitties, but is such a doll regardless.

There are 4 black kitties with a touch of white on their chests, and 2 tuxedos.  One black and one tuxedo are tri-pods.

Again, if you are interested in adopting a new friend, please email us for an adoption application.

Ok, so I think my kitten sexing skills are starting to fade, either all 6 of these kittens are male, or I really suck at sexing kittens.  We shall know on Saturday when they go to the vet for their exams.  And yes the entire litter was boys, so I don’t suck after all at the sexing of kittens LOL

To date August 15, 2009 we have only raised $100 towards the surgeries of Hubert and Odin…Their adoption fees have given $25.00 into the pot, so that is another $100 towards the surgery.  We have put a few of the adoption fees from other heathly animals into the pot for the kitties, and still owe around $350.  Any amount will help pay for these beautiful souls that are just as deserving as anyone else…please help.
