Eyes wide shut: one pound kitten rescued

Here is the latest update on a poor baby cat rescued by Mayor Bernard Lang, his wife Miriam, grandson Dylan and of course Shelley Schecter.

Well, let me introduce you to the new addition in my house.  Sunday evening I received a call from Miriam Lang's grandson, Dylan, that there was a kitten in trouble.  Eyes glued shut, trouble breathing, not eating and mother not tending to her.

Wearily, as I already have three kittens in one bathroom, I went over there.  I had asked them to trap  around their house starting Sunday as we had some spaces over at Vanier College this week.

There was this tiny little thing with it's eyes glued shut, meowing, with snot stuck to her face, a real mess.  A sure case of Rhino.

I took her home and tried to get her eyes open with warm wash clothes.  In this picture I had cleaned up her face as  I had a lot of trouble getting her picture at the beginning.

I took her to the vet and she has Rhino, of course, and is on antibiotics, eye ointment and high cal paste.

She is looking better now.  I will send another picture.

She must be hand-fed as she has no sense of smell and so cannot eat.  I initially force-feed her and then she will eat from my hand.

So, of course she cannot be with the other kittens, so two of my bathrooms are now occupied.  She weighs all of one pound.

Now that you should feel very sorry for me, I will tell you the good news.  I have one of the kittens adopted, Scotty will be going to a new home.  I then found out that Pandie was a boy.  I thought that I had given Diane a boy, but no it was a girl.

Committee member Aldo  spoke to a co-worker, who spoke to another co-worker  and he is interested in Pandie.  I will meet him next week.

Committee member Barbara  has offered to take Miriam, as she has two others with Rhino.

So, with any luck, I will be down to one kitten, that is Kisses.  Of all kittens, who would have figured.

Anyway, let us get Kisses adopted, please.

Many Meows,

Update on three beautiful kitties needing homes

Add caption
Here is a message from Shelley Schecter about three wonderful kittens looking for a home

Just a reminder that I still have the three little tykes in my bathroom.

As you can see they are growing beautifully.  Pandie, the black and white female is quiet and enjoys a nice back rub right where is counts.  She rolls over and like to have her tummy rubbed.
Is Pandie not adorable?

Scotty the only male, the long haired grey, has  a very strong female side.  Very delicate ,  with soft  light movements.

And Kisses, well, Kisses loves to have a good time.

They are looking for foster or forever homes right now.  They are about three months at this point.

-First set of vaccinations done
-Very good with the litter box
-Neutering with be covered at our clinic

If know know any responsible people who would like any of these splendid honeys, please email

All the best,

More cats looking for homes

Four little kittens were picked up from Mayor Lang's house with the help of Mrs. Lang.  They have been with Shelley Schecter for about two and a half weeks.

Kisses,is the female with  the short grey hair.  She is  coy, loves to play and prance about.  She loves to give kisses and has confidence and attitude all the way.


Scotty is male  grey with long hair.  Head cocked with a face one cannot bear
Soft, and downy duckling hair.  Very sweet and gentle.

Pandie is a quiet little girl   She lays low, she is shy but loves to be stroked.
A little inquisitive, but reserved.

All are  between two and four months old.  They have been de-wormed and  had their first set of vaccinations.  All are socialized and ready for homes.  There was a four month old black kitten and he was adopted by committee member Diane   His name is Black Jack and Diane says that he is doing great!  Her girls love him and he loves her and the girls.  All is great there.

We are  looking for wonderful homes for Jack's siblings.

Seven cats picked up and neutered

Seven  cats were picked up and neutered  in Côte Saint-Luc the week of August 27   and five of them are going to be in our angel committee member  Diane's garage - five females.  One has a broken eardrum and has to stay for 14 days on antibiotics; another  is very very tame and ready for a home; another is quite timid from and two more are on their way,  one long hair black and one Grey, trapped by former Mayor Bernard Lang and his wife Miriam.  Kudos to Shelley Schecter for her usual amazing job at taking charge. She still has a few kitties being socialized at her home.
