Hi everybody,

 

My name is Princess Fabdiculous.  I'm a blind cat.  I'm telling you my story because the rescue humans keep talking about capacity & budgets stopping rescues, the bigger the building, the more room for new rescues, but the humans can't afford it alone.  They say you can help. I hope you can because my friends are out there sick, hurting, alone, & scared.

 

My family was living in a house with too many other cats.  About 30.  It was very dirty & we were very sick.  The humans couldn't afford to feed us.  I was about 4 months old & mom just had more babies.  None of us could breathe well.  My brother & sister's eyes were crusted shut.  Mine had grown shut from having the infection for too long.  

 

Those humans contacted Animal Nature Sanctuary for help.  At first, we were really scared!  A lady came & put us in a big cage, but at least we were together, so we cuddled in a corner around the little ones.   

 

We were given a room to ourselves & the lady slept on the floor by our food & water to make sure we stayed alive.  Every 2 hours she helped feed the babies to give mom rest.  We had to take gross medicine.  We hated that.  The baths were worse.

 

As the lady was giving us medicine, she started to name us.  Mom is Lady Mommiline.  My litter sister, Zcarina.  My litter brother was named Allen D'Grey-cat.  I became Princess Fabdiculous.  The new babies: Siren, Slinky, & Love-Fluffin.  Some of us weren't getting better though.  

 

Soon Siren's eyes were crusted over too & so swollen with the infection he cried & cried.  The lady washed his face gently for a long time with a warm wet cloth.  When his eyes did open, he got a nick-name, stay- pussed because it looked like moldy marshmallow melting out of his eyes.  The lady rubbed & rubbed softly until nothing else came out & gave him more medicine.  Zcarina had green slime pouring out of her eyes so the lady cleaned her too, but then she saw something.  The lady pulled out a sharp grass seed from the corner of Zcarina's eye closest to the nose.  Both started getting better fast.

 

Zcarina's eyes leak all the time, but she can see just fine.  Siren made a full recovery, so did the other little kittens.  Mommiline gained weight & is up to 6 pounds.  Allen's left eye was too damaged already & couldn't be saved.  He is partially blind.   But we are safe & very happy!

 

Staying at the first house would have meant death.  Other shelters might have killed us because we were so sick & contagious & disabled.  Animal Nature Sanctuary took us in, saved us.  They never gave up.

 

Other animals get rescued from places.  Some just wander in by themselves asking for help.  

 

When we are at a new location maybe you will come in someday & meet the rest of Team Fabdiculous like Grunters Von Doorstop or Beefcake McMeep.  I'll let you talk to humans now.  

 

We work as hard as we can to save as many as we can.
