Birdy was found abandoned and near death in a log pile as a tiny kitten.
He has a birth defect and is missing his lower left rear leg.
His birth mother had been killed by coyotes so Birdy and two other kittens were left to die alone.
Since he did not get his birth mother's nutrients he has suffered from numerous health issues including diabetes.
He recently went into shock, ketoacidosis, and we nearly lost him.
He also has severe gum disease and will need the rest of his teeth pulled when he is well enough.
Birdy is a sweet boy and loves to crawl up into your lap.
Birdy is doing much better now and we are working hard to get his glucose numbers balanced.
Thank you for helping this loving boy
Chloe was a stray who was found in a ditch next to the road.
Terrified that her rescuer was going to hurt her she bit them in pure panic and fear.
She was labeled 'AGGRESSIVE' and spent the next five years in a rescue.
No one was interested in her due to her 'AGGRESSIVE' lable and her severe food allergies.
Sadly, there is not one aggressive bone in her body. She is a total sweetheart and preciously gentle angel.
Chloe came to us morbidly obese and she could barely walk.
We think they were overfeeding her at the other facilty because they felt sorry for her.
We fell in love with this sweetie and brought her to the ranch.
We got her on a good diet, exercise, and lots of love.
Chloe is now at a perfect weight, she loves her snuggly bed and blankie and will never pass up a carrot treat.
She is doing well but now she is suffering from a heart condition and requires daily medication.
Thank you for helping this sweet girl!
Jazzy was in a shelter for so long he got the award for 'Longest Resident'.
He has so many health issues that no one wanted him. He was malnourished and had infections in his mouth so bad he couldn't eat. He barely had any fur the first time I saw him. He also has ongoing allergies and gets stressed very easily.
We couldn't resist his charm and brought him home to the ranch to give him a loving forever home.
Jazzy is an adult male kitty with one of the worst cases of stomatitis I've seen.
Stomatitis is painful ulcers in the mouth like a canker sore.
He had to have all his teeth pulled and still the ulcers come back.
Jazzy has to go to the vet regularly for injections for calming down the ulcers and helping him with his over-grooming.
He pulls big chunks of fur out when he is uncomfortable.
He is a super love bug and we do everything we can to keep him as comfy as possible.
Thank you for helping this sweet boy.
Bergie came to us with a serious injury from a dog attack when she was a kitten.
A portion of her upper and lower palate was destroyed and required emergency surgery and a long rehabilitation.
As you can see she is showing off her unique smile with a few missing teeth and is doing well with a special diet and ongoing care.
Bergie needs regular dentals and check ups to make sure no debris is in the surgery site.
She is not a fan of the toothbrush so for now we just go in and let the vet check her teeth.
Her upper lip gets caught on her lower canine tooth so that may be an issue down the road.
We'll have to watch and see.
In the meantime, she is enjoying the sunshine and lounging on the deck on warm days.
Dumped by a heartless owner Shadow found a loving forever home here on the ranch.
This boy is an avid hunter and loves to chase anything that moves.
He is so affectionate it is hard to believe that he was dumped.
Good news to report, all of his test results were good so now it is time to start integrating him with the other residents.
This is a painfully slow process to ensure everyone's safety and comfort.
Most people introduce cats too quickly which can lead to many problems.
We feel like we struck gold when we found him wandering through our property looking for his next meal.
He will never go hungry again and the days of trying to hunt to survive will only be a far off memory.
Shadow has a forever home here on the ranch.
This guy...I was walking down our long driveway one summer day.
It was about 90 degrees out and why I thought I had to walk can only be fate.
I normally drive down to the mailbox.
Along the way I heard a high pitched distress call from a kitten.
It turned out to be Owie sounding the alarm.
He and his two littermates were left to die after the birth mom was killed by coyotes.
They were in a pile of logs and didn't have much time left.
Starving, dehydrated, their tiny bodies could barely move.
The two boys, Owie and Birdy were missing their hind leg from a birth defect.
The female, Thomas, was okay but starving and malnourished.
Even with only 3 legs, this handsome boy is doing just fine.
He signature 'OWwwwww, Owwwww, owwww' meow is how he got his name and literally how I found him that day.
If it weren't for the loud call for help they never would have made it.
Beady Pop is a senior Terrier/Chi mix. He has recently lost his vision due to old age.
He is on medication to keep his eyes
from drying out and never leaves my side.
I've become his 'seeing eye human'
and that's just fine with me.
He is a super snuggler
and knows when it's time for treats.
When he had his eyesight
he loved to run around the gardens
with Beanie the Weenie and Chloe.
Now, he spends his time lounging in his bed or following us around the ranch.
He is still able to find his way
around the gardens without assistance.
Beady has ongoing dental issues
as do most Chihuahuas
and is on medication
I rescued Charlotte and her four siblings from a hoarding situation.
They were tiny kittens that I could hold with just two fingers they were so malnourished.
Their eyes were sealed shut from infections and all of the kittens had upper respiratory problems.
Her brothers, Billy and Merlin transitioned years ago but they lived a good and happy life here on the ranch.
Charlotte is deaf and has mobility issues from arthritis. Her eyesight is starting to fade too.
She is also a thyroid kitty and has kidney and UTI problems so she is on on daily medications to keep her comfortable.
Charlotte would love to yowl for you as she has a mighty powerful voice for a 7 pound kitty.
Jack is Charlotte's brother and has been on the ranch since I rescued him and his littermates from a hoarding situation.
He had conjunctivitis so bad it compromised his cornea. Eventually, he had to have the eye removed.
Jack also has issues with ongoing ear polyps and has to endure regular ear cleanings and daily medication.
An MRI scan found the polyp to be one that grows back so surgery was out of the question.
Due to his age, it was best to just treat him each day and not put him through a procedure that may not even eliminate the polyps.
His arthritis has caused mobility issues so he is on medication to keep him comfortable.
Jack is a sweetheart of a guy and loves to nap with his sis, Charlotte.
Those two are always together and spend most days in their fluffy bed.
