“Caring for Feline Friends: One Cat at a Time Rescues Two Adorable Kittens with Hernias”

This week, One Cat at a Time took in two lovely kittens who are around 8-9 months old. We named one of them Sam, and both were examined by our partner clinic, which revealed that they have hernias. Typically, we would address this issue in a standard clinic, but regrettably, these kitties require surgery in a specialized hospital. Their condition is considered risky, and there’s a possibility of intussusception and other costly complications. The operation for both of them might cost up to $8K, and that’s a lot, particularly just before the holidays. Therefore, we’re seeking an organization that can help us with one of the kittens.
We’ve decided to start the surgery with the more urgent case, our little Sam. He’s undergoing surgery as we speak, and we need $4000 to pay for his treatment, including x-rays and consultation. When we receive a new case, it’s like a surprise package; we don’t know what to expect. Sometimes we see the worst, and it’s not so bad, while other times we think it’s going to be okay, but it’s more complicated than we thought.
Sam hails from a farm, and we want to emphasize that the animals there are well-cared-for and provided with a warm environment. They’re probably better off than roaming the streets of Montreal. The person who owns the farm was very grateful that we gave the two kittens a chance. These lovely kittens aren’t feral and have the potential to be adopted in the future. We’re offering them a new lease on life!

It’s been almost a week since our beloved Sam underwent surgery to eliminate his hernia. In addition, he was diagnosed with conjunctivitis and is presently undergoing treatment. After having the hernia removed from under his belly, Sam must be feeling more relaxed. Although he is currently on forced rest, he enjoys spending his time with his foster mother during short periods of relaxation. When we took Sam in, we were unaware that his brother had the same condition. Leaving his brother behind on the farm was not an option for us, as we believe both deserve equal opportunities to receive care. Tomorrow, we’ll introduce you to the delightful Frodo!

Sam is loving the cozy indoor lifestyle as a cat 💕

At the end of November, we welcomed two new members, Sam and Frodo, into our rescue. These two kittens had severe umbilical hernias that put them at risk of complications, and they needed corrective surgery. Luckily, we were able to raise the $6500 needed for their surgeries in just 2 1/2 weeks, all thanks to your generous donations! This was truly a Christmas miracle for us. 😊
Since their surgeries, Sam and Frodo have been recovering well. Frodo had an abnormal kidney value on his blood test initially, but by January 6th, everything was back to normal! Both kittens also have gingivitis, but we’re managing it with dental food and cleaning gel to avoid any need for surgery. 🦷
Despite their health issues, Sam and Frodo are both incredibly sweet and affectionate. Frodo can be a little shy still, but as soon as you start petting him he warms up and loves to cuddle. Sam, on the other hand, is a total pro at being a house cat – he’s friendly and loves to be held. We’re hopeful that they’ll be ready for adoption at the end of the month, pending their vet follow-up on January 27, 2022. 💙
We want to thank everyone who donated to help us save these two kittens. Your support means the world to us, and we couldn’t do this without you. While we know we can’t save every animal out there, we’re grateful to have made a difference in Sam and Frodo’s lives. We’re committed to making a difference, one cat at a time. 🐱
THANK YOU from the team at @one.cat.at.a.time.rescue! 💓

It can be quite unnerving when your caretaker has a romantic interest in you and you’ve grown weary of posing for photos. *chuckles* Meet Sam, also known as Sammy boy! *paws up* Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend! *meows*

Our beloved feline friend, little Sam, affectionately known as Sammy boy 🤍, joined our family in late November, but unfortunately, he came with a serious umbilical hernia that required surgery to correct. Despite the risks associated with the procedure, we were determined to get him back to good health. Recently, during his vet visit to get his last vaccines, he had a mild reaction, but thankfully he is now recovering well. However, he is also battling an ear infection and conjunctivitis. To add to his list of medical woes, he needs to undergo a dental surgery, which has been scheduled for March 1, 2022. Despite all these challenges, we are doing everything in our power to ensure that Sam is healthy and ready for adoption. We can’t wait to share his adoption form with you because he truly is such a perfect cat. We love him so much that we even considered keeping him ourselves! ❤️ @one.cat.at.a.time.rescue
