James was born with only two legs and went through a very rough beginning--but now he is thriving! In this video I offer some advice for working with mobility challenged kittens, and talk about James' case. You can see my first video about James here: usworlds.info/slow/video/o6eci4Kznp6Jh4c

  • Me my sister and my grandma fostered tons of kittens it was not easy but In the end you feel happy because they get adopted The sad thing is that one of them was too sick and it wasn’t doing very good so we had to put her down me and my sister and my grandma are still sad about her.

  • My aunt has a cat with a crippled leg. Sometimes he still loses his balance a little, but he's a pretty normal cat, and very friendly. He loves meeting people and getting affection. She was originally fostering him, but couldn't find anyone to adopt him because of his leg, and *that's* what makes me feel bad for these cats, the fact that so many people aren't willing to give them a chance.

  • I asked u for help earlier but no thanks, I can do it in my own and because I actually think u don't know what u r doing with ur videos - u want to save cats yet your attitude is not right at all - cards are MUCH wiser than you and you need to treat them as elders and not at dependants or something you are doing because you are kind - they were brought to you for a reason that has nothing to do with you "kindness" but everything to do with how you will learn from taking care of them ... You are not the one who should be highlighted, the kittens/ cats are.

    • I think cats are the best and that they teach us so much that people take for granted, they pay themselves on the back for "saving" them when if they think about it, they were saved for having the opportunity to take care of them. That is what I learned and that is what I know ... You do not speak for the kitten lady at all, yet you try to

  • From the beginning his spirit was of a fighter and survivor. He didn't fit the profile of dead cat walking or in his case crawling. He has no idea how close he was to a very short life. Thanks for the love and amazing work you do for these little guys. They are very lucky to have you and your organization around.

  • Disagree. It isn't coddling to help more. People who use manual wheelchairs end up with early and severe shoulder problems, for example. Those with mobility issues who can move some have to force it much harder and therefore it remains less overall. If it really is at 'normal' levels, then it isn't a disability, yet look how hard he was breathing just playing with a toy. A normal kitty wouldn't get winded from that. With his problems, he will tire faster even if he remains curious about life and desiring to interact. I'm assuming you've found the balance because he seems to be doing well, but he also has that shock look in his eyes that comes from stress, because he's trying to please others and maybe pushing himself too much. Still, for a kitten, I'm sure you're a 5 star resort.

  • Hi guys, this is completely unrelated but I thought I’d post here because I reallyy need help. I’m gonna keep it short. We have a male tux who is 10 years old. All his life, he’s been an outdoor cat and he’s really happy that way. He honestly only comes in for meal time.. about twice-thrice a day. However the past year or so my family and I have noticed that he’s been having wounds, perhaps due to fights with other cats or animals. Two months ago, we got a kitten and they get along sooo well. But here’s the problem.. I cant seem to get rid of the fleas on my kitten even though I’ve washed him twice (as well as the bed sheets and anything that fleas could be on). I’m starting to think that the fleas keep recurring because the kitty is around our outdoor cat (who most likely has fleas due to being outside almost 24/7). I want to bring the cat inside because of these two reasons. I dont want him to get injured or wounded again and I dont want the cycle of fleas to keep happening. My question is.. is it cruel to bring a cat indoor even though they are used to and happy with being outside for the past ten years? I know we are doing it for his well being but I really dont want him to be miserable :( Thank you for any feedback or help! I would really appreciate it because I cant seem to find answers.
