Brittie, a four-year-old cat, was rescued by Luna Mars Animal Project from a county high kill shelter. She was surrendered by her owners because they were moving. Owners had stated Brittie was diabetic. As a result, she wasn’t eligible for the shelter’s adoption program.

Brittie was taken to our vet and her diabetes was confirmed. After prescribed insulin treatments Brittie is starting to thrive and we are very hopeful that she will be in full remission soon. When that happens, Brittie will be available for adoption and will make an amazing addition to any home.

Emilia, a six-month-old kitten, was rescued by Luna Mars Animal Project from a county high kill shelter. She was being considered for euthanasian due to her enlarged eye. Because of her eye she wasn’t considered for adoption through the shelter.

Emilia was taken straight from the shelter to an eye specialist where it was determined that her enlarged eye was the result of an untreated eye infection when she was a very young kitten and could not be saved now. Although the eye doesn’t cause Emilia any problems currently, it was determined that the best course for her future would be to have the eye removed. She awaits surgery at a LMAP foster home and has proven to be a wonderfully friendly kitten. Her favorite thing is to be held like a baby while her foster mom walks around the house. She will be available for adoption after her eye surgery.

Pitterpat, a two-year-old cat, was rescued by Luna Mars Animal Project from a county high kill shelter. She had been scheduled to be euthanized because she was urinating outside the litterbox, hiding and not eating much over a two-week period. She had been placed on appetite stimulants during this period with no results.

Upon transfer to a LMAP foster home it was discover that Pitterpat was completely blind. Her behavior at the shelter appears to have been a result of her blindness and nothing more. Once settled into a safe environment she blossomed into a wonder friendly cat and has continued to thrive. She enjoys sitting on the back of the couch and watching TV with her foster mom.

Mia was surrendered to a vet by her owners. They were relocating and since they couldn’t take her, wanted her euthanized. A local rescue stepped up and saved her from being euthanized. Unfortunately, she was failing to thrive. The drastic change in her situation was just too much and she was shutting down.

LMAP works to support other rescues and will accept their animals if we have space and resources available. This day we were visiting another rescue to pick up two cats that had been surrendered together. While there we noticed Mia lying in the corner. She was nearly unresponsive, and you could tell she was shutting down. We were told she wouldn’t tolerate any other cats around her. It was obvious that she was seriously depressed and no matter what the rescue did, she wouldn’t respond. We decided to take her as well. It should be noted that the other rescue was doing everything they could for her and her situation wasn’t due to any lack of effort on their part.

Mia was given a large area in a bay window away from any other cats. She was allowed time to adjust and feel safe in her new environment. As a result, she has started to thrive. She now roams the foster house and is much more tolerant of other cats. She is ready for adoption and will be a wonderful addition to someone’s family.

Cats like Mia are the reason a sanctuary is so necessary. So many animals could be saved if there was a place to give them the time and space to make the adjustments necessary to thrive in a home environment.
