I have found myself in possession of two kittens named Nutmeg and Sage. I’m fostering them right now, but they are in desperate need of a permanent home which, unfortunately, I cannot provide them. I can have them until about July 1st and then they need a new home or they go back to Tails of the City They are currently (as of June 10th, 2014) six weeks old. They are litterbox trained and incredibly cuddly. They are spayed female siblings from the same litter and because they are so bonded, I ask that they go together.
Please help me give these little ones a home! They need and deserve it. I will provide the adopter with all of my left-over supplies. So if you want two loving, smart, precious kittens, or know anyone who does (even if you don’t please signal boost this!) please contact me either here on Tumblr or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Tails of the City. Thank you. Every thing you do will help.

A little over two months ago, a cat in our neighborhood gave birth to 5 healthy kittens in our garage and we’ve been taking care of them since then. They’re adorable and friendly and so active, but they’ve started climbing out of our garage and sneaking into car motors.
Unfortunately, because of this, one of them was injured last night and he has a fractured pelvis and broken femur. I just got back from the vet, and she said there is a very slim chance he can recover on his own, and he will most likely need surgery. The surgery is estimated to cost upwards of $1000. Just this morning, my family and I spent over $200 on x-rays, vaccines, blood tests, and pain medication.
Assuming he will need the surgery, we can’t afford it and it would mean the world if anyone out there could make a donation to my PayPal (email@example.com) or just reblog this to see if anyone else can. If he ends up not needing surgery, I can return it all. I guarantee that anything and everything that gets donated would go towards his medical bills. Please guys, this would mean the world to me and my family. We can’t let this little guy go.
This is a biggie. Please SIGNAL BOOST this.
From qschoolcandidate -
Our cat, Belle, is a year and six months old and she has a mega colon. Veterinarians are pretty baffled, but they believe she was either born with the defect or it is the result of an injury she received before we adopted her.
When she was a kitten she hid under the hood of a car and received a long gash on her abdomen. But by the time we adopted her she seemed perfectly normal and healthy. However, when she was 3 months old she became painfully constipated to the point where she could not move. We took her to the vet and discovered her colon was almost completely non-functional.
Since then she has been to the vet multiple times to receive enemas despite trying a variety of medications. Nothing has worked. If Belle does not receive surgery to repair her colon we will have no choice but to put her down.
Our family loves this cat so much, and she and my mom have a very special relationship. It would break our hearts to have to put down Belle after we’ve only gotten to know her for a year.
Please help us save our cat!
