Furkids Rescues Kittens with Swimmer’s Syndrome

Furkids Rescues Kittens with Swimmer’s Syndrome Recently, Furkids was called upon to help rescue dozens of cats and kittens from a filthy, run-down home. It was a truly sad situation for these helpless, fragile animals! We’ve discovered three of the kittens have Swimmer’s Syndrome, a congenital condition that can occur in young kittens, causing the legs (typically the hind limbs) to splay laterally. These kittens look like little frogs, with their hips and feet rotated out to the side, rather than underneath their bodies. The great news is that with time, proper therapy, and a lot of patience, Swimmer’s Syndrome can be corrected. We’ve dubbed this plucky trio the “Furkids Swim Team”, and we’re working 24x7 to bottle feed, clean and provide a strong… READ MORE >

Junie was Broken, but Now has a Home!

Posted on Thursday, February 27th

Junie was Broken, but Now has a Home! Sweet Junie was found abandoned, lying on the side of the road and shivering in the rain. It was clear that she had given up on trying to make it. Her rescuers picked her up and tried to see if she could stand, and she couldn’t. X-rays confirmed both of Junie’s hind legs were broken. One was so badly injured it had to be amputated, and veterinarians where concerned her remaining hind leg might have nerve damage so extensive it might never be functional. But through Junie’s unbreakable will and the care of our medical team, she made an amazing recovery. This beautiful… READ MORE >

Little Brittney Gets a Second Chance

Little Brittney Gets a Second Chance Updated! Brittney Adopted! Little Brittney was found as a tiny 4-5 week old kitten, alone in a storm drain in Mcdonough. She had a very severe infected wound on her right paw, which would soon become septic without treatment. Brittney had most likely been dumped, and with the challenges of being a young kitten and the difficulty getting around, her prospects for survival were not good at all. Fortunately the kind woman who found her decided to get her to Furkids. The wound initially healed, but then began to cause little Brittany severe pain. Every effort was made to prevent amputation,… READ MORE >

Jethro’s Cheeky Diary: the Power of Positive Thinking

Posted on Thursday, May 2nd

Jethro’s Cheeky Diary: the Power of Positive Thinking When Jethro came to us as a hurricane refugee, he was a truly sad kitty. He struggled to feel at home in the shelter, and although it was comfy and he got to participate in our Purrkids program (for shy, depressed or less social kitties who need extra attention), he still seemed so sad. Worse, he gained weight. LOTS of weight; to the point where he had difficulty moving around. We knew focused attention, a weight-loss supervisor and a real, loving home was what he needed. It took awhile, but we finally found Jethro's human hero in our Fabulous Foster, Linda H.… READ MORE >
