CATS

New Jersey
Jingles - South Jersey, New Jersey

This distinguished gentleman is Jingles.  Jingles is a 15 yr old, 9 lb, neutered male cat.

Jingles was surrendered by his family because the son became severely allergic to cats just recently. If our rescue didn’t take Jingles in, he was headed for the county kill shelter, where at 15 years old, wouldn’t stand a chance.

Jingles is out-going, talkative, and loves rubs & attention. He is okay with other cats, but we can definitely tell he would prefer to be the only kitty. In his prior home he was good with the dog.  He is a wonderful character!

 

Jingles came to us with some health issues per his recent blood work. The main concern is liver disease. Our rescue does a lot of holistic oriented care so this wasn’t a huge concern since the liver can fully regenerate. He also came to us full of fur knots, all over his body. We slowly cut them out one at a time and his fur has since grown back - he looks like a new man 😸.

 

Soon after coming to us, Jingles developed loose stools. He has been on several meds to try to firm things up but with no success. We are now attempting homeopathic treatments in hopes to get things under control. We believe the stress of losing his home and family at his delicate age is the primary cause of his tummy issues. We are looking for either a long-term foster or a permanent hospice home for Jingles, who will continue working on his health with us, while making his senior years as happy as possible.  We would like to keep Jingles within 50 miles of our rescue.  For more information, you can call Lynn at 856-979-4564 (call/text -please leave message if calling) Or email to lynnsanimalrescue@gmail.com.

Rajah - Teterboro, NJ (12/1/19 still avail) 

Rajah is a 3 yr old neutered male. This beauty has been at the shelter since April and he's a purring machine. 

He has FIV but it is a misunderstood disease.  These cats CAN live with other non-FIV cats as long as they are not aggressive. It is NOT spread through casual contact but only through deep bites.  Many animals live for years with no signs of the disease. There is a lot of information on FIV here: https://www.hospicepet.com/fiv-and-felv

Visit Rajah at the Bergen County Animal Shelter located at 100 United Lane, Teterboro, NJ Tue - Sun 1:00 - 4:00 PM 🐾 Application and adoption fee applies. All animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, tested for FIV/FeLv and dewormed. https://www.co.bergen.nj.us/images/Departments__Services/Health_Services/Animal_Shelter/2017-Adoption-Application.pdf

Baby Girl - Red Bank, NJ (1/4/20 still avail)

This is Baby Girl.  She's a 10 yr old, 7 lb, female spayed cat.

Baby Girl has an urgent situation that is not her fault and I hope that we can help her.  A small rescue who doesn't have room for her was contacted about her and they are willing to help with the adoption process although they do not have foster for her.

Baby Girl's owner developed Alzheimer's Disease. Her husband is overwhelmed with the challenges of caring for his wife and cannot handle caring for the pets. The other family cats were taken to a shelter but they would not take Baby Girl with her medical condition.  The rest of the family confirms that Baby Girl's safety is definitely at risk.

Baby Girl was diagnosed as diabetic, but no one is giving her insulin right now. She seems to be doing pretty well on Purina DM prescription diet. Baby Girl is a little cautious at first with new people, but very sweet once she gets to know someone. She has lived with other cats for years but can be a bit of a bully with other cats, so if she went to a home with other cats it should be a large home where they are not in close quarters. These are the photos submitted to us by the family.

The rescue that is attempting to help is willing to drive 6 hrs to deliver Baby Girl or meet someone half-way.  They really want to help.  For all information, please email: PANinc@att.net.

Sylvester - Wyckoff, NJ  4/27/20

Meet Sylvester!  He is a 5 yr old, 12 lb, neutered male cat.

Life hasn’t exactly been easy for Sylvester. At only five years of age, this poor kitty has been through so much. First, Sylvester lost his person, and was left alone in their home for almost a month before he was found and helped. As a result, Sylvester had to be hospitalized with keto acidosis, and is now taking insulin to control diabetes.

 

As we have seen in the past, especially with cats who were living on an improper diet, or under very stressful conditions, this could very well be a temporary situation. In a calm, controlled environment, this issue may be resolved and become able to be controlled with diet. Only time will tell. To make matters worse for Sylvester, some spots were found on an X-ray of his lungs. We are having his records sent to our vet for further observation, to have a better idea of what this means for Sylvester.

 

We would love to help Sylvester...but we need a foster angel! We know that there is a very compassionate and special person out there who is willing to take him in. Someone did initially step up and this wonderful person even paid his hospital stay, but is unable to keep Sylvester much longer. The rescue will provide absolutely everything you’ll need. The only way we can get Sylvester healthy is to get him into foster. We would hate for Sylvester to have to endure yet another stressful situation and end up in a shelter. 😿 Sylvester is shy at first, but warms up quickly and is good for his injections. He coexists peacefully with both dogs and cats. ..but it would be kindest to keep him in a separate room at first until we get a better handle on his health. We know that with your help...we can do this for Sylvester. Now is the time to truly make a difference in the life of an innocent animal who really needs a break. 😿 Sylvester is available to go within 100 miles of his rescue.  To foster Sylvester: https://www.hharteam.org/foster-form/
