37329412_1551144508945587_r.jpegCheetah is a little 6 M old kitten that was hit by a car, he lost the use of his back legs, he is otherwise healthy, very sweet and adorable. His owner was going to put him down but we took him in and want to give him a chance at life! He is going to Dr. Gallagher at Quartet on Wednesday and the surgery is estimated at $2,600. Please help us raise the funds for his surgery, no amount is too small and Cheetah thanks you!

Cheetah is doing so well with his physical therapy! Watch Siglinda work on stretching his back legs. We have ordered a K-9 Cart for him and hope it will help strengthen his back legs by getting him up on all fours. Thank you to everyone who has donated and we could still use your help with Cheetah and all the other kitties in our care at the refuge!

Just wanted to give everyone an update on our cutie Cheetah! He is moving all about Siglinda’s house and enjoying some time on the porch. He is getting some wheels this weekend so we will post about that soon!

I wanted to give everyone an update on Cheetah. I visited with him and Siglinda today and I must say this little kitty is a darling! We understand if anyone wants a refund on their donation but we would like to get a wheelchair for his back legs and see if that will help his mobility. He seems to have gained strength in his back legs and can move them some. Siglinda will continue to work with him on that. We have several kitties that need dental surgeries and we can always use the extra money from this go fund me campaign to pay for those surgeries. Thank you all for your support! This was the note I got from Siglinda:
It is very sad but our little Cheetah cannot be fixed because the owner kept him for a month without vet care and then brought him to the Shelter who kept him at a Vet for almost another month when they asked me to take him… His back is broken, his bones healed in the wrong position so now there is nothing that we can do to help him. He is going to be like this for the rest of his life. All I can do is to give him medications so he can urinate and defecate regularly and do physiotherapy hoping that he can get to move his legs more. He is such a little jewel! He wants to play with the other kitties and he will manage to do it, in time, but mostly he is in my office with me in his bed or on my lap.

We have added some photos of sweet Cheetah to our Go Fund Me campaign. He is staying at Siglinda's house for now so she can keep a watchful eye on him but we hope to get his surgery done soon and we need your help to do that! Please consider giving any amount to help Cheetah.
