Please Help Us Help Paralympia

$725 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 20 people in 13 months

On May 2, 2017, shortly after she arrived in her foster home beautiful Russian Blue Cross Teela gave birth to three kittens

Her foster Mum noticed that tiny Paralympia's umbilical cord was wound tightly around her hind legs.

We rushed her to a vet, who gave us the terrible news that this happened while she was developing inside her mother and that her feet had been deformed.

The only way to save this little kitten's life,  her hind legs below the “knee” were amputated. 

Paralympia has survived the surgery and is doing well. Her mother is taking forever good care of her at the vet's office.


The vet has assured us that Paralympia can adapt and learn to run and jump and enjoy her life, never knowing that she is “different”,  and we want to give her this chance.

Do you have it in your heart to give her your support by making a donation towards her veterinary bills?

  We are hoping to raise $3000!

Paralympia is a Russian Blue Cross and is named Paralympia because of her courageous and indomitable spirit.

She is determined to survive and we are determined to help her!

Please help fund the life-saving surgery she underwent as well as her after care.
No amount is too small to make a big difference.

All donations over $15.00 will be eligible for a tax receipt so please be sure to include your full name and address so so a tax receipt can be issued.

We will keep you updated with pictures and let you know how Paralympia's progressing.

Thank you in advance for your support..

PARALYMPIA (PERI) HAS BEEN ADOPTED, BUT WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP!!

Paralympia went off to her permanent home a few days ago and we're thrilled that she's with a loving family.

However, Abbey Cats is still facing a very large vet bill for her surgery.
Because of a birth injury, (her umbilical cord was wrapped tightly around her hind legs) her feet were deformed and the only way to save her life was to amputate her hind legs below the "knee".
Paralympia survived the operation like a true champion and has continued to thrive.
She is running, jumping and enjoying her life, not knowing that she is "different".

We are still hoping to meet our fundraising goal of $3,000.00 so that we may pay what is owing for her life saving surgery and continue to help other cats and kittens like her in our care.

No amount is too small to make a big difference and all donations are accepted with gratitude.

Paralympia (Pia) is growing more beautiful and independent each day.
The latest update from he r foster mother is this:
"Regarding her legs she really is more 3 legged.
One back leg is partially amputated and the other is missing the paw.
She is very mobile little girl and is able to get up on furniture so I have no doubt she will be doing stairs in no time."
Pia is available for adoption now....
If you are not able to adopt her, but would still like to help with her medical expenses, please consider making a donation.

Although Paralympia was born different from her siblings that doesn't stop her.
She might not be the first one out of the bed or the first one to the bowl but she doesn't give up and she gets there.
She is learning what works for her and how she can get where she needs to go.
She has the sweetest little face and her personality is so calm and relaxing.
