LEAH is available for adoption!!

Spayed, Vaccinated, DOB November 1, 2013.

Hi my name is Leah! I am sure many of you have read about my journey (below) and I am happy to say I am feeling much better. My foster mommy thinks I am ready to start looking for my forever family!

I am a little scared, but I know with the right family I will come along nicely. I take a long time to trust initially and come out of my hiding spot, but once I do I will let you pat me, and I will come for a cuddle. I love wet food and treats, so you can always coax me out with these delights! I will let my foster mom pick me up and hold me but I just squirm the whole time to get down… perhaps with more time I would be more comfortable with this.

I live with other cats and dogs with no problems, but my foster mom thinks they should be on the quieter side as with any noise I tend to hide. This is also why she feels I am best suited for an adult only home. I have never shown aggression with kids or towards my foster mom, but she just feels the constant buzz and unpredictability that comes along with kids is too overwhelming for me on an everyday basis.

I have had my nails clipped and coat brushed although I really don’t enjoy either – they are just so unfamiliar to me so I run away. I use the litter religiously (like a good girl) and I do not cause any damage to the house or furniture.

I love looking out the windows in my foster home. I will meow occasionally to let you know I am here and when I am feeling confident I will even rub up against you! Don’t move too quick though or I will be on my way. My foster mom feels that in the right home I will just blossom into a social confident kitty. May I become part of your family please?


Update (May 25th): Leah is a purring machine! She is doing really well in her foster home. She will soon be seeking her understanding, patient adult-only forever family soon. Thank you to everyone who has helped work this little miracle for Leah.

Update (April 21st): Leah is eating, drinking, and walking around in her kennel. She is doing FANTASTIC.

The vets will be re-checking her blood tomorrow, and will remove the sutures on Thursday. She should be ready for her foster home this weekend (assuming nothing abnormal in the blood work)!!! She will be going to a foster home without her kittens as they are well taken care of by their surrogate kitty mom, Claire. Leah also can no longer nurse as her milk has dried up, plus she needs all her energy to get back to 100% healthy!

Thank you to everyone who was cheering on this little girl – purrs all around!


Leah needs your positive healing energy! This sweet momma was surrendered with her litter of four ten-day old kittens on April 11th. Within hours of her surrender, it became apparent that something was very wrong with her. Although she had taken wonderful care of her kittens up until that point, she was non-responsive and unable to nurse.

Without the quick action in the middle of the night from her foster mom, Leah would not have survived until morning. Two undelivered kittens were still in her uterus, causing her to go into septic shock. She has undergone emergency surgery and is currently in ICU fighting for her life.

Leah’s vet bills are mounting (almost $4000 so far), and she is not out of the woods.  Please help us get Leah back to her babies by making a donation today.
