A Momma Cat had kittens under my neighbors shed.
Not sure how many she had, but three were found alive.
The Momma had the kittens out and they encountered
a raccoon. While defending her kittens the Momma cat
got killed. Two of the kittens got away, but one kitten
received a serious eye injury.
These three kittens were dumped in a hole on the corner of my
block. They where only about 3 weeks old. There were two that
looked alike Shamus and Shelby and an orange one I called Marmalade. Unfortunately, Marmalade died on the way to the
Vet for treatment.
When I got Shamus and Shelby to the Vet they had ring worm
real bad and loaded with parasites. I had to keep them in for two months for treatment and hand feed util they were old enough to
eat on their own. Their treatments cost 700.00 dollars, but they
both made a great recovery and our doing great now.
Pictures attached are when they were kittens and now.
They free roam on my property.
The one with the bad eye is Wayne, the other black kitten is Shayne and the white kitten is Pearl..
Once I was able to get them from under the shed, which
took a week for them to come out, I took them all to the
vet to be treated. They were treated for parasites and
received their vaccines. Shayne and Pearl were healthy
overall. Wayne had a bad eye. He was treated with
antibiotics first to see if it was just an infection, but after
a couple weeks of treatment it was determined it was more
serious. Since it would not heal we decided to remove
the eye. When they removed it they discovered that there
was a hole in the eye possibly caused by the Raccoon.
All three siblings are living on my property now healthy
and happy. All of them have been spayed and neutered.
I was able to get all three of them spayed/neutered for
free but the medical treatment for all three including the
surgery came to $1730.00 dollars.
Heart Harbor Rescue will not let any animal suffer.
Most of the animals rescued have some kind of
injury or illness that has to be treated.
Heart Harbor Rescue's mission is to cut down the
population of unwanted cats and kittens, to stop their
suffering and to medically treat them so there is not a
spread of disease.
