Polly is recovering nicely from her spay. She will soon be ready to find her own forever family. This girl is as charming as she is playful. She is like a big kitten. She loves toys, balls, feathers, treats and cuddles. She is so easy going and can be picked up, cuddled, brushed without any issue. She is ok with other cats and seems unreactive to dogs so far. She will make the prefect addition to any family looking for a full grown and fully trained kitten. She is so full of curiosity and life and has been a pure pleasure to foster ❤️❤️❤️ #polly #tuxedo #nomorebabies #adoptdontshop #fosteringsaveslives #spayandneuter @nlcrcats
Pada saat kucing kawin, pastilah Anda sering mendengar keributan dan suara berisik dari mereka. Sebenarnya, apasih yang menyebabkan itu terjadi?
Pada saat kopulasi berlangsung, ada rasa sakit yang dirasakan oleh kucing betina sehingga ia mengerang dan mengeluarkan suara kesakitan. Mengapa? Anda perlu tahu bahwa penis kucing jantan mempunyai duri – duri atau barbs. Dan duri – duri inilah yang menyebabkan kesakitan pada kucing betina pada saat kawin atau saat kopulasi berlangsung. Selang beberapa saat, ada beberapa kucing yang tidak tahan akan rasa sakitnya dan akan berusaha untuk melepaskan dirinya dari pejantan.
Para peneliti percaya bahwa adanya duri pada penis kucing jantan bertujuan untuk merangsang kucing betina dalam proses ovulasi atau melepaskan sel telur (ovum) untuk disenyawakan dengan sperma. Rangsangan ini akan menyebabkan otak kucing betina memeberikan respon untuk pembebasan hormon spesifik yang bertujuan untuk melepaskan ovum (ovulasi).
Update: the two Chihuahuas, that we rescued from the old lady two days ago, came out positive to Heartworm. Barbie’s eye condition was checked after she was Dr under anesthesia, and it was discovered that she had an abscess caused by an infection in one of her canines that went all the way up to her eye. Dr Davis cleaned out the whole area and gave her antibiotics for ten days. She only has one tooth now, but at least she’s going to live. This poor “girl” was going to die if we didn’t rescued her. Now both are starting HW treatment and will have to stay with us for another 3 month. #prdogs #adoptdontshop

Here’s a lot of cuteness to brighten up your morning!
Many of you reading this love animals and probably love kittens.
It’s undeniable that they are adorable, which is why so many people choose them as their companions.
So naturally, when we found a tiny kitten stuck on our dive store roof, everyone’s initial instinct was to help, to feed it, give it water and of course reunite it with it mother. .
But on Pom Pom ,like on many other Islands, the cat population is a serious issue and they are wreaking havoc on the ecosystem here. We estimate at this point that there are approximately 50+ cats inhabiting the island.
It’s a very difficult situation to address for many reasons.
CATS BREED LIKE CAZY!
For instance one female cat has the ability to produce an average of about 12 kittens each year. That can really add up quickly!
THEY CAN BE VERY DESTRUCTIVE!
Cats are considered the most destructive of all invasive non-native species by many biologists. They have been responsible for numerous extinctions of ground-nesting birds, which was indeed the case on Pom Pom Island.
Cats here feed primary on birds, and lizards, while I’m sure they are rummaging through trash and being fed scraps.
Well meaning people with empathy for these cats don’t realise how complex the issue is and just want to feed a hungry animal.
It comes naturally to many of us to want to save sick, abandoned and injured animals. It’s understandable that the idea of eradication seems far too brutal.
WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS?
Attempts to control feral cat populations are widespread, although the techniques differ significantly. Some advocate for trap-neuter-return programs to prevent the cats from continuing to breed; others suggest euthanasia. To restore balance the quickest solution would be to euthanise all cats on Pom Pom. But as mentioned a lot of people would be devastated by this.
WHAT WE PLAN TO DO.
We intend to collect information to help us prepare to collaborate with amazing organisations who specialise in trap-neuter-return programs. Although this does nothing to stop the impact of the current cat population. We hope it’s a step in the right direction to start combating this problem in the most humane way possible.
What a day!! Four new rescue puppies half way planned today and then a big unplanned rescue that is only halfway finished. The four rat terrier and schnauzer mix pups came from a person who found them yesterday free for the taking.
Then this evening literally as mama grunt and grunt Kathie was headed up the highway the 2+ hours to get my sissy Quigley they got a distress call about teeny puppies out in the elements with a bunch of other dogs a lady didn’t want anymore. Long story short: mama called in backup of our partner shelter HSSEMO and we will be sharing the rescue of a total of 11 dogs. Tomorrow we go back to get the three we couldn’t fit tonight in moms truck. We have three very 5/6 week old terrified pups that may have never been handled. The shelter has mama and four newborn pups going into foster tomorrow. And then three more tomorrow. All of them are extremely under-socialized. They are all schnauzer mixes also. Must be the day for schnauzer dogs!!! BOL!! Teamwork and jumping off the cliff is a big deal when you have to act fast or puppies die. Thank you to the realtor selling the ladies house and her niece Erynn for reaching out to us. We wish we could help all dogs but we have to focus on the ones who need us most. NOW if someone wins the mega millions 900MILLION dollar jackpot we should talk about our plans for a dream rescue facility.... BOL!! Even with no lottery win we still work our tails off to keep saving the ones who need us most. Thank you all! These puppies go from sleeping in a concrete floor in an open garage to a warm inside space with soft blankets and food and water. Today is a win for so many!!! And Quigley gets another night away at camp... shhhh she will never know if you don’t tell her.

My face when mom says there's a possibility of us getting a brother cat
Still tasting the tuna on my lips
This little green sausage got spayed today at nearly 6months 😓 She took it like a champ - minimal iffyness after anesthesia and major surgery, wolfed down her kibble when she got home and now happily munching on an edible chew 😊 Also digging these bodysuit things, the next 11days will go a lot smoother without an e-collar!
