Rescuers were heartbroken when they walked into a hoarding situation to find over 50 cats roaming the home. The smell and conditions were horrific.
One of those cats was named Ladybug. It was obvious that she had multiple litters of kittens and it had taken a toll on her tiny body. She weighed only 3.5 pounds when they rescued her. She was malnourished and her body did not produce milk for her most recent litter of kittens.
Los Gatos Foster Animals took in the frail cat and was determined to rehabilitate her. She developed Vestibular disease from seizures caused by her emaciated condition. The rescue found a loving foster home to take Ladybug and give her the care she needed.
After a few months in the foster home, Ladybug was starting to recover. She weighed 6 pounds and was eating like a champ. The nutritious food donated to the shelter helped her regain most of her balance and motor skills. She was spayed and brought up to date on vaccinations, in preparation for her new family.
She found the perfect family who loves her just the way she is. The rest of her life will be spent in a loving forever home.
Los Gatos Animal Rescue thanks Greatergood.org’s Rescue Bank program for their generous food donations. “Without the food provided by Rescue Bank, we could not help cats such as Ladybug get healthy and find forever homes. With the support of Rescue bank, we have placed over 1,050 cats and kittens in a four-year period, and have nearly 200 cats and kittens in foster homes currently.”
Ladybug and many others like her, want to thank you for your support. Giving Tuesday is just around the corner and you can help by donating! We’re excited to be a part of this worldwide event, providing you with a chance to have an impact on animals in a huge way.
With your help, last year you made it possible for over 6.7 million animals in shelters and rescues to be fed. This year, will you help GreaterGood.org break that record?
We need YOU to make this the biggest Giving Tuesday yet!
