Nothing Compares to a Mother’s Love!

Posted by Furkids Admin | Thursday, May 11th

Nothing Compares to a Mother's Love! Sweet mom, MOSAIC, gets a smooch from little PRISM, as MURAL looks on. It's a pretty picture, but here's the cold reality - many of these precious families don't make it out of shelters. Especially this time of year. Kitten Season brings with it rampant cuteness, and deep despair. So many in need, and so few resources. We watch our beautiful mom cats tenderly and lovingly care for their littles, and we're so grateful they're safe in Furkids' embrace. But there are always more, waiting... This year, why not honor your own wonderful mother,… READ MORE >

PREGNANT SENIOR CAT FACES CHALLENGES

Posted by Furkids Admin | Tuesday, April 4th

Mostly-toothless Khatleesi was not having an easy time with what was surely her umpteenth pregnancy. As an 8-year old, she was, technically, a pregnant senior. But she soldiered on, and delivered The Meowtain, Jon Snow, Arya Stalk, and Tyrion Lannispurr. (Don't judge, she'd used up all those cute kitten names with other litters. This time she had to think outside of the litter box.) As Khatleesi was cleaning them up, which was surely challenging without teeth, she began to feel nauseous. Although she was hungry, she couldn't eat. Pain made it nearly impossible for her to nurse her littles. But,… READ MORE >

Accentuate the PAWSitive - FIV is No Big Deal!

Posted by Furkids Admin | Tuesday, April 4th

Samson and his forever family know that the feline immunodeficiency virus is spread by deep bites typical of un-altered tom cats in territorial battles, or from mom to baby in the birth process. It is not passed among house cats using the same litter boxes or food dishes; or by communal grooming. It's just fine for FIV cats to live with people, dogs, and other cats.
