September Two

Posted by siyerwin on Sunday, August 27, 2006 at 1:40 PM

Adoption is only one aspect of the animal welfare advocacy. There are other ways that you can help these homeless animals. If you're interested in learning more about those ways, please attend the forthcoming PAWS orientation on September 2, Saturday, the year 2006, 10:00 AM, at the PAWS Animal Rehabilitation Center (PARC), and become a volunteer. Here's the chance you may be waiting for, fellow advocate. Pounce on it. Now is the time. Stop denying your heart the fulfillment of seeing the animals freed from pain and misery and into better lives. Do it. Do it. :)

A hundred cat and dog licks await those who come. Bring a friend. Ask your friend to bring a friend.

They need more of us to lean on.

Please get the volunteer application form here, fill it up, and kindly bring it personally to PARC on September 2!

If you have questions regarding the orientation, kindly email PAWS at philpaws @ PLDT phone service is currently down.

Amazing Kate

Posted by siyerwin on Wednesday, August 02, 2006 at 1:00 AM

Seeing Kate for the first time was almost mind-blowing for me. My brain rejected what my eyes saw: a kitten hopping and bouncing around on only three legs! It was like one of those CG animated movies that we sometimes find ourselves marveling at; like something unreal made to appear so fascinatingly real.

Kate, by all means, is real and is indeed a very fascinating creature. Her limping and hobbling don't stop her from being the curious and playful kitten you would expect a kitten to be. Hundreds of my shots were not framed well and were generally unfocused and contained some kind of motion blur. She just kept on playing and sidling up and rubbing up to me. Kate was a whirlwind on three legs!

Kate is starving for love. You'll learn this fact immediately when you meet her. Her disability will not slow her down in giving you the affection most homeless cats give with reckless abandon. Check out her video below and I'm sure you'll agree 100% with how amazing Kate is!

Look, 'ma! Three paws! No camera trick on this image.

One of my favorite Kate images. It wasn't framed well though as I was holding the camera with only one hand. The other hand Kate's trying to jump!

Kate's eyes are not well. One of them's cloudy and was perhaps injured as a result of her inability to keep perfect balance. All the more reason why she needs to get out of the shelter environment.

A friendly moment for Kate and a shelter pup.

Below is a short video clip (shot and put together by another PAWS volunteer) to show you guys how cute and unique this shelter amputee kitten is. I just know she will touch your heart.

The video above is around 3mb. A lighter version is provided in the link below:

Kate badly needs our help and the urgency of it is quite obvious. The shelter environment, while good enough for most cats, will not be very good for her. She needs a good home to nurse her eyes, among other things, to sparkling health.

Adopt Kate and keep her from getting further injured. She gets free consultation from PARC's resident veterinarian, Dr. Henry.

Tell your friends about Kate by forwarding this post to anyone you know who might be able to help. If you have websites of your own, I'm sure Kate will love you for telling your readers about her. Link to me.find.Home!


The rescue of Kate

Below is an account of the rescue of Kate, the three-legged kitten, written by her rescuer Fatima Reyes who's also a PAWS volunteer. You may thank Fatima for her generosity and admirable compassion through the commenting link right after this post. I will make sure she gets them. Thanks for reading.

The kitten is about I think 4-5 months. I went out of our gate to leave for a meeting when I saw some kids looking at something on the ground. Since I was in a hurry I decided not to investigate…then when I was near the exit to our subdivision…I remembered I left my wallet behind so I went back to get it. When I arrived at our gate, I notice that the kids are all gone but there is this small black and white furry thing among the garbage at the side of the road. To my horror, I saw it was a kitten and its front paw was mangled beyond recognition. It was barely alive so I took it inside our house. I decided to postpone my meeting since I thought that the kitten will not make it if I will still have to take it to the vet in the afternoon. I called up Anna who very kindly advice me to take the kitten to the Marikina vet so I drove there and got lost since I don’t know the place. Finally I got there and was accommodated very kindly too by Dr. May. The kitten was touch and go at that time, it was so pale. Dr. May bandaged the mangled paw and cleaned the kitten who was whimpering in pain all the way. I monitored the kitten’s condition by sending text messages to Dr. May, and finally was informed that the kitten will pull through but will lose its front leg and is also blind in eye. I visited the kitten again and was ecstatic to see how alive and lively it was. I really admire the kitten. I would have wanted for the kitten to live with me so I am fostering it. However, our place is small and I am kind of worried about its safety here so I am also open for it to be adopted…
