“Just try to be on your best behaviour tonight, okay? Someone is coming in to see you and you might find your forever home.” The volunteer’s voice is coaxing and hopeful that this might work. However Spicy eyes the volunteer with her intelligent gaze as if to say, “I will be the judge of that” and then promptly jumps out of her condo and takes off to the top of the cages to scrutinize the other lowly cats at adoption centre. The volunteer lets out a sigh knowing that Spicy will be Spicy and she alone will decide who is worthy. “

Adopted FRIDAY the 13th

I sat atop a tree house peering down at my subjects below and all the other cats knew not to bother me or play with me. That’s how I wanted it. Being put in my cage at night was very restrictive and the nights were long. I’ve always thought no one would want me because of my ‘spicy’ disposition but there is always that one person who you are meant to be with. It’s not that I don’t like humans; I just don’t like a lot of them at the same time. I am meant to be adored, loved, and an only pet.

I waited a long time for the right owner to come along and when she did, it was love at first sight, I couldn’t wait to see what my home would be like.

She took me home and stayed with me all weekend. We got to know one another. She gave me space and let me go to her when I needed someone. I adjusted very quickly and love my new family.

It has only been two months and I feel like a princess. I have everything a cat could want but, most of all, I have my mom. She feeds me the best food and I get to sleep with her every night. She is always giving me kisses. It’s okay, I guess, and sometimes I really like it. She trains me like I’m a dog (sigh). I must pick up my toys each night and put them under my tree but I always get a nice treat.

Watching Mom

It makes me happy when she’s home all day and not at work but I’ve adjusted to our schedule very well and don’t give her any grief. I like to be in the same room with her and watch what she’s doing.

As you can see, I’ve flourished and grown in just a few months. We are a perfect match and we plan to be together for a long time.

Harrison

Harrison

Meet Harrison. Harrison is only 10 weeks old.
Harrison needs your help.

Harrison has been a trooper through all of this and has made other kitty friends in his foster home. His foster mom has given him the best care possible so far and will continue to do so after his surgery. He has a long journey ahead of him and he will need lots of TLC as he recovers.

Harrison was found alone in a ditch, emaciated and near death. Rushed to a vet, they thought he was only a few weeks old due to his low weight and skeletal frame. Harrison was a very sick little kitten. He had calicivirus, suspected URI and had a hard time eating because his mouth was packed with ulcers. After his initial vet visit, he was moved to a foster home, where after lots of TLC, good nutrition and his medications, he was finally on the mend. Except for his mouth. He had no top lip and his gums were showing. After investigating his noisy breathing and sneezing, foster mom noticed one nostril was the size of a pinhole. It was discovered that Harrison had a fistula, which is a hole that goes up through the top gum and straight into the back of the nostril. Fistulas can be caused by injury, but they can also result from an infection or inflammation. It is very painful, causes a lot of discomfort and can be life threatening. Harrison is going to need at least two or three surgeries to correct this. The surgery can be quite intense and the recovery will be long.

This is where we need your help. Harrison’s surgeries and recovery will cost thousands of dollars. While we aren’t sure of the exact amount yet, as we aren’t sure how many surgeries he will need, we hope that you can contribute to his care. No amount is ever too small and we appreciate any and all donations.

On behalf of Harrison and Ninth Life Cat Rescue, we thank you for your continued support.


UPDATE September 15. Little Harrison had his first surgery on Friday. The vet discovered that his issue was more severe than originally anticipated and he will definitely need more surgery. He will be making another visit to the vet this week for a follow up.
