Freckles! Kitten on the Go!

Posted by Furkids | Sunday, March 31st

Hi, I'm Freckles! A kitten on the move! A very kind woman named Bonnie heard my cries, and she looked until she found me under some bushes. She could not find any of my siblings or my mother, so she took me inside and put me in a box with warm blankets. She bought me a bottle, formula, a beautiful pink blanket and a teddy bear for me to snuggle with. I am a beautiful little calico girl with and adorable bobtail.

I am considered a special needs kitten. My little back legs are twisted as the result of a birth defect, and it has been very hard to walk. I desperately need your prayers and donations to get the special care I will need to help repair my legs. I have a long road ahead of me. Originally I was rescued by the team at Angels Among Us who raised funds for my care, but Furkids had a foster home with experience dealing with kittens in my situation.

Halloween Tips from Furkids

Posted by Furkids | Friday, March 29th

Halloween is only a few days away. It’s important to remember the safety of your pets during this time of year. Things can get hectic and noisy with the kids trick-or-treating. Here are 6 very important safety tips for your and your pets on Halloween night:
1.  Chocolate Is Poisonous to Pets. Most people already know this to be true. However, it’s easy to accidentally leave candies and chocolate within reach of pets. Make sure to keep the candy bowl and trick-or-treat baskets away from pets, especially if you have pets who are mischievous and like to get into trouble. (Late night emergency vet visits are no fun!)
2.  Keep Pets Indoors. Hopefully your pets are already indoor pets, however, some pets may be let outside to partake in the fun festivities. Just be aware that on Halloween night your pet could run into danger and become the victim of bullies and pranksters. [Unfortunately, this is especially true for black cats.] Prevent ANY opportunity for your pets to...
