SURVIVING AGAINST A very
brave girl
ALL ODDS

DoggieRescue was recently contacted by
a pound about a cat who was not at all well
and was being nursed at the vets. The
council would not fund further investigative
work even though she was very ill, almost a
skeleton, and had poor gum colour. She was
classified as “end stage” – a lost cause. But
we did not accept that.

Monika Says “ Just a few weeks before, this
poor cat had given everything she had to rear
her new born kittens. By the time the cat, who
we named Martha, came to our clinic the vets
had almost given up hope. She underwent
emergency surgery which revealed she had a
twisted intestine, and parts of it had died. I
was warned she was unlikely to survive the
night, but we kept our paws crossed.”

It was a risky operation and Dr Clack said she
had little chance of survival. She stayed back
and performed the operation as we knew by
the morning there would be hope. A large
section of the intestine had died. Dr. Dee
watched her through recovery and the rest
was left up to Martha. We said lots of pussy
cat prayers that night. The next morning our
vet nurse came in to find Martha hungry!!! It
was just amazing. Over the next few days
whilst still on a drip, she has started to eat
small amounts, as her intestines get used to
functioning again. Although Martha is feeling
a lot better she still has a long way to go.

Martha has shown us what enormous
strength she has. We are so glad we saved
her. If you want to be part of Martha’s
recovery, which has cost $1800 please

THE POUND KITTIES

To date 384 lives DoggieRescue saves many cats
have been saved. and kittens from Death Row in
pounds around Sydney. Some
are in poor health, their tiny
bodies struggling with cat flu and
exposure. Each life is precious.

It would be impossible to
continue this life saving work
without the support of the many
wonderful, caring vets.

A BIG THANK YOU to the vet
clinics listed on p45 who currently
have kittens/cats available.

To those vet clinics who have
helped by rescuing kittens in the
past, and who will have kittens
available again soon ie.
COLLAROY VETS, AVALON
VET CLINIC, VET MED
LINDFIELD & MOSMAN VET
CLINIC we thank you so much
too:)

We were
saved...

But most of the thanks must come from those precious lives saved. The kittens and cats who are
alive today when they should have perished if DoggieRescue had not had the support of all the
vets (& vet nurses) who have put in the time & effort to care for them. We think they are amazing:)

It’s safe to keep your kitty

when you are pregnant!

By Deb Rouse

A number of pets are surrendered when an owner becomes pregnant due to fears of
toxoplasmosis. The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (http://www.cdc.gov)
advises that “people are more likely to get [toxoplasmosis] from eating raw meat or
gardening”.

Toxoplasmosis is usually picked up by eating
contaminated meat or vegetables, through
infected cat faeces, or may be passed from
mother to baby. It is a parasitic disease
which may cause no symptoms at all,
although mild flu-like symptoms may appear,
or for those with very weak immune systems
then it is possible for seizures or coordination
problems to occur, and may have a negative
effect on a baby’s health (https://
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxoplasmosis).

• There is a low risk that a pregnant mother
may contract toxoplasmosis through
contaminated faeces (for instance
cleaning a litter tray), however this
may be avoided by thoroughly washing
hands afterwards.

Cats or kittens may get toxoplasmosis from thoroughly, wear gloves when gardening, and wash hands
eating contaminated raw meat, birds, thoroughly – washing hands thoroughly is good advice for
rodents, or soil. A kitty will only have the everyone at anytime!
disease active once, then it builds immunity
and rarely gets reinfected, and the infective
oocysts may only be excreted for a period of
less than two weeks (http://
www.humanesociety.org/animals/resources/
tips/toxoplasmosis.html).

A person is more likely to pick up the disease
through handling or eating raw meat. The
recommendations include to avoid under
cooked meat, wash raw vegetables

It will be far better for the kitty and your family to stay together as your “tribe” providing long term
companionship. There is more advice to come for preparing your pets for a new baby which applies to
doggies, kitties, etc to keep your family together – there’s no need to surrender your loved pet.

Toby & Tia — A love story!

Toby and Tia arrived as rescues from the pound on Also pictured
the same day 3 months ago. They had never met. on page 8

Tia was sent to us because the pound said she was
heavily pregnant - it turned out she wasn't but she had
plenty of milk so must have recently lost her kittens.

Toby arrived terrified confused dirty and sick and too
young to be away from his mum. We also realised he
lived in a silent world and is 100% hearing impaired.

Their sadness that day was breaking our hearts so we
made the decision to see if we could put them
together. Tia initially looked at him with sad eyes and
hissed - he wasn't hers and he smelt weird. But within
a few hours she started looking at him with a softer
look in her eyes.

Toby waited patiently, barely moving a muscle. By
that evening she started to groom his coat back to its
bright white and then eventually she started to allow him to suckle on her warm milk. Since then their bond has
grown and they are best friends and always snuggling together. They are both available for adoption - Tia is about
18months old and Toby is now 4 months old. They have been living at The Cottage now for 3 months with not a
single adoption appointment. We would love these two to go to a forever home together. They would need to be
indoors because Toby is white and so prone to skin cancers but also because he cannot hear he would not be able
to avoid cars, dogs and other dangers. Please share these precious two and hopefully they will spend the winter
stretched out together by someone's fire or in someone's lap.

Please call THE COTTAGE ANIMAL HOSPITAL on 98907220 if you are interested
and a big thank you to Monika's Doggie rescue as always for saving these two.

MORE INFORMATION
“ The NSW government is moving ahead on their
plans to cull feral cats. We've been assured by the
Threatened Species Commissioner, Gregory
Andrews, that it only applies to 'cats in the outback'.
Yet a new app encourages the public to highlight
where colonies are. And guess what? The colonies
are mapped and they are in suburbia. And worst of
all, the research is being funded by pest control
companies. ” Elizabeth Rescue Cat Project

While DoggieRescue saves as many pound DOGS as possible we are very limited due to
space/foster homes available in the amount of CATS/KITTENS able to be saved, with only a
lucky few with available foster homes being rescued. While frustrated at the many lives being
lost the problem created is just where can we put any more? They cannot be kept in a dog shelter
and there is just no space available. In the last twelve months an idea, put forward by a Doggie
Rescue Volunteer, has grown into what is an expanding venture between DoggieRescue and
Veterinary Surgeries. To be able to see this initiative growing is amazing. See p45 for the list of
veterinary clinics with kittens. For more information please email [email protected]
