Johanne was just four months old when a stranger found her on the street and brought her into PetitsPawz. Susan Mackasey, president of PetitsPawz, immediately took her to the vet where Johanne spent over a month healing and recovering from worm infestation, anemia, and dehydration. When she was released from the vet, Mackasey brought Johanne home to foster her while she waited for a forever home, but then poor Johanne developed an upper respiratory infection. She fought that and slowly gained back her health again. By then, Mackasey was undeniably smitten with the now loving and vibrant kitten and adopted her. Johanne is now a healthy adult cat who loves affection, treats, and belly rubs. Discover the 17 things you never knew about your own cat.
Noelle and Neil Burke regularly feed and shelter stray cats outside their home. One day a cat showed up that Neil was certain was feral because he darted away when they approached him. It took about ten days, but the cat finally trusted Neil enough to let him pet him and pick him up. The couple decided they would take this little guy into their home, but knew he needed veterinary care before he could mingle with their other inside cats. Unfortunately, a prior business commitment took the Burke’s out of town before they could get this new cat medical care, then when they got back the cat was nowhere to be found. Luckily, he came back! They found him sleeping on their front porch and immediately took him to the vet. The cat, now named Wheels, has won over the hearts of everyone he meets, including all his virtual fans on his Instagram account.
