Jack

My name is Jack. I am about a three month old handsome male grey tabby. I was found in a backyard with my siblings starving to death. No one wanted to help us out till my foster mom stepped up and has raised us to be sweet and healthy kittens. I only have one eye but that does not slow me down or stop me in anyway. I am a very loving kitten and extra special because of my eye.

I am playful and sweet. Good with other kittens, cats and people.

Please stop by the Petco on Vance Jackson to meet me. If you want to visit me call/text Lorraine at 210-471-8462.  Email: crazykattlady67@gmail.com

 


Maddie

My name is Maddie. I am a 4 month old female tuxedo. My siblings and I were found in a ditch during a rainstorm in Mc Allen, Texas. My foster mom took us home and cared for us till we were old enough to take us to a shelter so we could be adopted.

I was the only one they would not take in because I had a cloudy eye. She took me to the vet and nursed me back to health. My eye right eye is cloudy due to an upper respiratory infection. No shelter wanted to take me in because of my eye. My mom called the SAFCC and they told her if she drove me to San Antonio they would find me a foster mom and help adopt me so off I went on a five hour drive north to find my furrever home.

My new foster mom took me to Dr. Bonney a Veterinary Ophthalmologist in San Antonio. Other than a right eye which has no vision and needs a wipe in the morning my left eye has vision. I can see and have no problems getting around.

I am the sweetest angel, turn on my purr motor as soon as you pick me up or start to love on me. I need time to adjust to other cats and kittens and this is because I can smell them but feel threatened by them but once I get used to them I am fine. I love to play with my toys, started to climb the stairs and love to explore.

Paji

Contact: Fostering by Mixie (fosteringbymixie@gmail.com) for more information about this pet.

Hai! My name is Paji (pah-jee). Meaning bright energetic and affectionate. I am a very special and unique kitty. You see I am a special needs cat that came with a surprise. When I was living alone on the streets and finally decided to ask for help my rescuers trapped me and brought me into their home. I was brought into a humane shelter to be spayed. My rescuers thought I was a very friendly pregnant female when the surgeon operated on me I gave everyone a huge surprise. I am actually a male cat that had an operation to be female so I can go potty easily.

Biologically I am male but clinically female. They told my rescue mommy that I might have to be put down because I didn’t look healthy enough to be a good cat. Thankfully my rescue mommy didn’t give up on me and decided to make a lot of effort to get the aid I needed. And with time pressured I was able to get seen by a special veterinary hospital who helped me and did what they could to save me. Now I am a very happy kitty I gave so many kisses to my rescue mommy I couldn’t help it to the point I almost fell over.

Medical Condition: Perineal urethrostomy and Alopecia meaning skin irritation. Paji is a crossbreed of Russian Blue/Korat

If you wish to meet and adopt Paji please contact Miriam via email at fosteringbymixie@gmail.com


Jerry

Contact: Kay, email kaykeane307@gmail.com or call/txt 210-366-4345

Jerry is a good-looking fellow who has lived on the streets all his life and has made friends along the way. A while back someone had the good sense to take him for surgery and vaccination and eartip. Recently, however, he developed an acute problem affecting both eyes. One of his friends asked SAFCC to see if they could help with his care. He went for examination by an eye specialist and for tests.

Unfortunately, Jerry tested positive for feline leukemia. That is what is causing his eye problems. His condition is known as uveitis, a painful and potentially blinding inflammation. Sometimes he has flare-ups when his eyes become swollen and squinty. He takes flurbiprofen eye drops which are a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug when needed. They help reduce the inflammation and the pain.

Because of the care he needs and his decreased vision, Jerry needs an indoor home. Having feline leukemia means that Jerry needs to be an only cat or in a household with other leukemia-positive cats. Feline leukemia is species-specific and does not infect other pets, such as dogs.

Happily, Jerry is a friendly guy who loves to be petted and talked to. He is a champion lap-sitter and couch potato. He is quiet and spends much of his day snoozing. He is a good eater and loves his canned food especially. Although it is undoubtedly painful, he shows remarkable patience when he has to get his eye drops.

The vet estimates that Jerry is 5-6 years old. He is current on rabies and FVRCP vaccinations. Who knows what the future holds? There is no way to know how long he will live with leukemia. The recommended treatment is to give him a quiet home with nutritious food, water, good veterinary care, and lots of love.


Sandino

Contact Virginia per email: VirginiaMBrown@satx.rr.com or Susan 210-803-9334, susanschmahlenberger@msn.com

Hi my name is Sandino! I am an orange and white male tabby with an adorable pink nose. My age is about 1 year old. I am up to date on my shots and negative FELV/FIV. I am a shy guy and really prefer to get to know the other cats in the house first and then work up my courage to meet you as well. Once I get to know you I will be giving you goo-goo eyes and begging for petting. I like to play with my wand toy and play chase with the other kitties. So if your kitty needs a feline friend, I may be a purrfect fit for you and your family.


Ben and Jerry

Hello, my name is Jerry (white and gray tabby) and this is my brother Ben (solid gray tabby).  We were born in September of 2014 and had a rough start to our lives.  As kittens an infection attacked our eyes and blinded us. We can see some shadows and movement and once we know the layout of the house we are pretty good navigators and only occasionally bump into things. We’re the perfect pair as I’m goofy and fun while Ben is quiet and relaxed. Our bond is so strong that when we get separated in the house we call out for each other. We love hanging out together. I love affection from humans more than Ben does and I especially love suckling on my blanket. Our foster family includes kids, dogs, and cats and we love having these friends to play with. We are looking for a loving family to adopt us as a pair.


 Cabo

Contact: Lorraine, crazykattlady67@gmail.com210-471-8462, for a faster reply, please send an email directly or call.

Cabo, is a brown tabby, teenager kitten about 8 months old (as of 11/2015).  When he was a kitten he had limited function of his back legs and he had to drag them to move about.  Thanks to good veterinary care and his foster mom’s TLC,  Cabo has grown a up to be a teenager in good health.   His back legs are still a bit weak, however that doesn’t slow him down for he gets around easily. Due to his minor handicap, Cabo will have to be an indoor only cat. He is a very sweet guy, playful, loves toys, loves to sit in the window, bounds up and down the stairs.  He loves the company of other cats.  He would make a great pet.

 


 

Alice

My name is Alice, I am a six month old (as of 1/21/16) brown tabby.  I would like to share my story with you. My colony feeder noticed one night I was injured so he called the SAFCC helpline. Your volunteer trapper DJ took the challenge in the middle of the night to rescue me. Then I was rushed to an ER vet. I was diagnosed with a prolapsed rectum! They reinserted the organ, stitched me up and off I went. Recover for seven days and I would be back on the streets. Well, that was not the case at all! After several attempts and doctor visits to keep my organ in I was referred to a specialist.

My foster mom took me to Affordable Pet Care on Grissom Rd. I meet with Dr. Earl who was kind enough to want to help me.  After all, I was a two month old kitten with no income. I spent many days with him and his lovely staff. They took exceptional care of me.  I became a regular patient, first name basis and even had my own kennel. I even had to eat special food. I am now completely recovered and have blossomed into a sweet, playful and loving girl. I will not have to go back on the streets because I am friendly. I am now going to adoption events in search of my furr ever home.
