THE STORY:

Please help in any way you can...

     TAILS rescued a mama cat and her three kittens from an outside wooded area. All seemed healthy. Mama got spayed and vaccinated and her three little ones played happily.

     A few days later, the foster came to find one kitten sick and this beautiful little creature died in her arms shortly afterward. As it was past regular veterinarian hospital business hours, options were limited for care. TAILS immediately took the remaining kittens to Cornell Veterinary Emergency in Stamford. It was then sadly confirmed, the kittens tested positive for the fatal virus Panleukopenia. (More info can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feline_panleukopenia). Odds are that 5-10% of kittens under the age of two months survive this disease.

     TAILS is a NO KILL group and we stand behind each of our "charges." We could have hid behind the banner of "shelter medicine" - allocate resources where they are most needed. Agreed, this was where we needed it most! We admitted the two kittens to Cornell with small hope and much prayer for their survival. Their intensive care in isolation began. To see these little babies with IV tubes in their arms brought tears to our eyes.

     Four days later, we got the call that helped us exhale, slightly. THEY MADE IT through the horrible symptoms of the disease and had a good chance for survival. These little fighters now reside at a foster home, eating, catching up on lost weight, receiving their medicine and steadily becoming the playful, purring (loudly) kittens they were.

     Big-hearted donors stepped forward who have offered dollar-for-dollar matching assistance. For every dollar donated, they will match it (up to $3,000)! Kittens Molly, Holton and TAILS thank you for your wishes for a successful recovery and your financial donation.
