Meet adorable, quirky little Burt we pulled from @ahsnewark. As many people know, the municipal shelters are constantly full and cannot house the amount of animals coming in 😿. When we went to pull a couple of weeks ago, we asked to see the ones most at risk, and we were shown this handsome boy in the medical department who could barely open his eyes due to infection (he was next to kitty Apollo, seen in last week’s post 😻). One of our incredible cat fosters, @blackcurrantjams, has always been willing to foster ANY cat that needed it, and so we knew this was our chance to save this little guy who was at serious risk. Burt was clearly in pain and very uncomfortable, suffering from a bad respiratory/eye infection. He is also very wobbly and falls over often. The vet ran tests to make sure Burt was not suffering from any virus that would make him wobbly. There is a good chance that he has #cerebralhypoplasia and was just born like this, but when he is neutered next week we will do further testing to make sure this is not a result of trauma. It’s been amazing to see how Burt has transformed! At the shelter, he understandably was not happy with his eye area being touched and it took him a few moments to warm up... but his desire to be loved was evident, and within moments of gentle pets he began to purr and head butt for more attention. Burt is blossoming into the sweetest little guy, and we are very excited to find him the special forever him he deserves. **Burt was an owner surrender, and we have no information from his past. We are hoping his wobbles are due to having cerebral hypoplasia, and not from him suffering trauma. Stay tuned for more updates. THANK YOU @blackcurrantjams for always opening your home to 😽s in need 🙌🏼😻 #shelterchic #adoptdontshop #rescuecat #rescuekitty #cat #catlover #specialneeda #specialneedscat #soecialneedskitty #catfoster #fostercat #fosteringsaveslives #becausesavinglivesisalwaysinstyle @mrpawesome @friendsofnewarkahs @missmayim @modelcarolalt @bethostern @shelterchicanimals @mycat_george
For everyone who has kindly asked for an update on Mac, here it is: we adore him! He fits in perfectly and brings such joy for the kids! Mac Attack, as the kids call him, has familiarized himself with the main floor of the house and has even started venturing upstairs. He likes to be around the people even if he just watches from a short distance. The boys love to snuggle him and give him kisses. Pru searches for him and is desperately wanting him to play! He will sit near her for a while before buzzing off to follow me or whoever has peaked his interest for the moment. We feel blessed to have him and hope he is as pleased with us as we are with him. 🐈 💕
