I need to stop eating bananas. They are responsible for at least half the cats in the shelter and on the street.
I went to a supermarket and as i got out of the car this very innocent little girl ran up to me. I feed behind the supermarket so i know she wasn't there last night.
She was walking in front of cars and going to each person who got out. She's about 4 months old, in good condition and is lost or (my guess) dumped. I should have left her there because i know she would have access to food, but i couldn't.
The supermarket is called Victory so she's Vee, Vicky or Victoria ... probably all of them.
Please donate towards Vee (link in bio)
We have a very special boy to introduce to you and we hope you can help us find him his forever home. Please share this post to spread his sweet little face far and wide. His forever home is out there somewhere.
Lionel came into our care after being found on the streets with a fractured jaw. He was skin and bone, lethargic and not thriving. After lots of TLC from our vets and nurses and because he’s one tough cookie he’s grown into a sassy little thing with a great jawline, ladies! He is however, still a special needs kitty. He has had a spout of renal failure which was corrected by the team with fluid therapy.
He currently is fighting that fight again but we believe with the right diet and family this can be kept under control. He is very shy at first but will slowly come out of his shell if you give him lots of patience!
Lionel is a special need kitty and we hope to find him the right forever home because every animal deserves to be loved and to be safe. #specialneedscats#lovable#shyguy
Helping my pops with his stretching. I have to hold his leg down...he tends to cheat. 😹 #stretchingexercises

MY GIRL IS HOME! 🏠 Polly seems so relieved to be back and to have some peace and quiet. As soon as I made a little nest out of her favorite blanket, she immediately crawled in and took a nice snooze 💕 I added another blanket on top to keep her naked little butt toasty ☺️ Her incisions are looking good so far, and I’m hoping that keeping a close eye on her for the next 3 days will largely spare her the cone of shame! I’m sure this recovery phase will not be easy, but Polly is the biggest little trooper I know 💪🏻
Every Friday Daisy and I will be introducing you to one of our friends at Milos Sanctuary. So many of our friends have amazing stories of survival and we think you might enjoy meeting some of them.
This week is our friend, Beatrice. Beatrice was born blind living on the tough streets of Cairo, Egypt. She was alone, blind, homeless, scared and starving. Knowing that she was suffering abuse on the streets and also being blind, an underfunded rescue got her off the streets.
They knew they couldn’t afford the necessary medical treatment she needed so they contacted @milos_sanctuary
Milos Sanctuary had her and two other blind cats flown over from Egypt. Once here, she received all medical treatment she needed. Then she was treated to love, kindness and a safe place to call home. Now she’s a silly confident lady who loves to get into mischief. She’s a hoot!
To sponsor Beatrice or any other special needs kitty at Milos Sanctuary just go to MilosSanctuary.org , look for “Sponsor a special needs cat” and search for their photo and tap on it. You can read their whole story and sponsor them there.
Baby boy is never far from mama, even when she's taking a shower 😹

Well Dusty made it 4 full days without the Thundershirt. He’s back in one now, but just due to itching. Very few tics or spasms. A little excessive gnawing in one spot and I tossed it back on him. I will bathe him again today. That Douxo Calm shampoo is miraculous!
I’m working round the clock, but still just digging is out of a very deep financial hole that is totally of my doing. But what is done is done.
It’ll be at least another month or so until we are once more flush and able to start saving again. Hopeful for a small inheritance I’ve been expecting for nearly 3 years now due to an idiot of an executor.
We do need some support this week, both cats are having respiratory issues and need more special cat litter. (Dr Esleys Respiratory Relief) They both need chip reading feeders to properly do this Tufts prescribed elimination diet and I’ve got to start stock piling on Dusty’s special food for the diet, which is like $45 for a small bag and he eats A LOT!
On top of that he’s nearly out of meds, which cost about $100 a month.
You can find links to our Amazon wish list, GoFundMe and PayPal in the bio link. You can also find links to my online shops, @lightlysaucedretro & @renegaderevivalvintage in the bio link or on their instagrams that I’ve shared. That way, instead of donating, you can purchase vintage clothes, barware or gifts at either of my Etsy shops and that will certainly help us.
I am so grateful for the love and support you all show us, regardless of your ability to donate. It’s been a crazy roller coaster of a year, full of travel, adventure, sickness and bad financial decisions, but our social media friends have really helped us smile through it all. So thank you🐾💕🐾💕🐾💕🐾💕🐾💕🐾💕🐾💕🐾💕
❤️ Nieuw engeltje. Meer info later. Wil je meter of peter worden van één van onze dieren, een donatie doen of ons een handje komen helpen? Stuur hier even een bericht of stuur een email naar 👉 firstname.lastname@example.org

Nominated by🗳️: @nelson_and_lillabet

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
What is your special story✨? Elvis was hit by a car 3 years ago which resulted in a fractured pelvis & broken back leg with a twisted foot.

We found each other & have been best friends ever since!

Triumphs 🏆: Elvis has been so brave through all his surgery & medical procedures.
Personality: 😻 Elvis is incredibly affectionate and social, going up to strangers to say hello when he’s on his special support harness. He loves cuddles & loves to snooze on his dad's tummy!
Betcha didn’t know this about me🙀!: He was given the names Elvis from the emergency vet team. He had a broken pelvis so they all called him ‘Elvis with the pelvis’ 😂

🌙 Os presentamos a Yoshi🌙
Este es el gatito de la patita que habéis visto en stories.
Llega desde Albacete donde dos chicas geniales lo rescataron y han cuidado de él hasta ahora. Vimos un post sobre Yoshi en Facebook y no pudimos resistir!!
Es muy pequeño para sus dos meses y sigue teniendo problemas al caminar. Suele arrastrar mucho la pata. Pero hoy veremos a Alfred de @centre_veterinari_joanic para ver cómo seguir con su tratamiento.
ES ADORABLE, super juguetón y más sociable imposible!
Cuando sepamos más sobre su patita podremos ver cuando puede ser adoptado!
Bienvenido Yoshi 😻
🌙 This little guy is Yoshi🌙
He is the kitty with the hurt paw that we posted on our stories.
He has come from Albacete where two lovely girls rescued him and have looked after him. We saw a post about Yoshi on Facebook and just couldn't resist!
Yoshi is small for his age (two months) and still has trouble walking, he tends to drag his bad leg, but this afternoon we are taking him to Alfred at @centre_veterinari_joanic to see how we should continue his treatment.
This boy is ADORABLE as can be! Super playful and SO sociable.
Once we know more about his prognosis we can start taking adoption applications for him!
Welcome Yoshi 😻
We love that you all love Maya, and we love that her story is spreading awareness for those who are different. But what we do not live, want, or support is those who adopt (or much worse, breed) a special needs or different looking pet for the purpose of making them famous. We didn't expect this to happen with Maya—we adopted her because we fell in love with her, differences and all, and we created this page because people asked. We didn't know what we were doing, and we never could've even imagined having this many people in love with Maya and our story. In fact, Maya was in a shelter for over 3 months without getting adopted because no one wanted her. That alone says everything. Now, a few years later, it completely breaks our hearts and infuriates us to see people asking where they can 'get one' or hear about breeders trying to make smush-faced cats because they're in demand. That's👏not 👏the 👏 point 👏people.👏 There are so many cats and dogs in this world that are looking for a home—animals of all abilities, all appearances, and all personalities—and every single one is worthy. We want to give the different ones a voice, but also make sure everyone knows that they take extra work, too, and that all pets deserve loving, genuine homes. Sure having followers can be fun, but we'd be just as happy (maybe even happier) with our cats if we cancelled this page today because it's just not what matters. Instagram is no reason to adopt, but compassion is. Please adopt a pet, and please consider those who are different. But please do it for the right reasons. Thanks for all your support, keep being awesome, and let's make the world better for everyone. ✌️
