Guess what - yesterday's pretending a blue sky worked 😹 at least for a few hours. the best about it: it was my turn to occupy this house 😹😹 and just to make sure it's mine, I 💩💩 inside. (Unfortunately I had to go through a shower afterwards.) . . . #specialneedscat #secondchance #rescuecat #tuxedocat #paralyzedcat #specialneedspets #adoptthelessadoptable #adoptspecialneeds #bekindtoeverykind #bekindtocats #meow #instacat #ilovemycat #ichliebemeinekatze #katze #tierschutz #foreverhome #welovevlad

Let me sleep!
Tah-dah! We have a new foster! The first time mama and I have taken in an adult cat, and we love him so much already! Meet Weeble! He is a 3 year old special needs cat that has CH, but aside from walking with a wobble and being a little rolly polly, this guy is the perfect cat! He absolutely loves people and will do anything he can to get some cheek and back scratches out of you! He is calm, and quite, and settling in to his new foster home. He will only be with us for 2 short weeks, but we can’t wait to learn all we can about him and to let his true personality shine! Welcome home Mr. Weeble! #foster #fostercat #weeblewobble #CH #cerebellarhypoplasia #adoptme #BFASLA #BFAS #specialneedspets #specialneeds #specialneedscat #extraspecial #greycat #beautifulboy
Happy #bunnybuttfriday from MONTY IN HIS FOREVER HOME!!! Yes, WE ARE SHOUTING! After being at the rescue for so many months, Monty needed some extra socialization, so he went into foster care over the holidays with board member @jacqknife and her spouse Simon. Monty’s abundance of giant binks and his desire for constant petting stole Jacq and Simon's hearts. A three-week vacation is now a forever family! ❤️ Monty is the perfect foster failure — his plume of inquisitive whiskers, stunning pink eyes, striking white fur, and GIANT bunny mouth were just too irresistible. He is joining a rabbit-obsessed family that will do nothing but love and cherish Monty for the rest of his life. Monty will spend his days in a lovely @leithpetwerks 3-story condo attached to a large x-pen run space and his evenings zooming around the living room with supervision of his human parents. Congrats to the very happy family!!! ❤️❤️❤️ #bunny #rabbit #houserabbit #fosterfailure #pets #veganpets #vegan #petsarefamily #bestfriend #love #rew #specialbunny #specialneedspets #rescue #seattle #cuteanimals

My traumatized look after getting towel-dried by mom after I got caught in a flash rainstorm. (Mom about broke her ankle running outside to rescue me.)

Java’s so tired after her big vet visit today with Dr. Denney at @pendervet. It went really well, and I got all my questions asked. The most important one: how will the impending bladder infections affect her lifespan? Turns out that if we stay on top of it, it probably won’t shorten her life at all. The major issue is that if a bladder infection isn’t treated it can affect her kidneys; if any infections are found and treated in time it’ll take care of a lot. He suggested having her come in every 3 or 6 months to check her urine just to be sure. We’re going ahead with an MRI, as it’ll help with prognosis- if it’s something obstructing her bladder/bowels, it could improve. If it’s an issue with myelination it probably won’t. We’re gonna find out. At the end, he mentioned that as she’s so young there’s the potential for regeneration and that there’s always hope. 💜💜💜 At which point I started crying like a big ‘ol baby and thanking him for being so awesome. Also, I have been waiting ALL OF MY LIFE for a lap cat and now we finally have one! #specialneedscats #adoptionstories
Moo loved his first bath at Paws and Anchor! Moo gets very nervous around other dogs, so he was able to take advantage of our Private Appointment option so he could have the shop to himself! Give us a call or come into the shop to learn more about our Private Appointments 🐾⚓️🐶🐮 #pawsandanchor #bradleybeachnj #specialneedspets #uniquepetcarebythesea

I NEED YOUR HELP! I can't find Mom 😱 I waited for her at the door at 5:30 yesterday like always, but she didn't come home! Any ideas where she could be hiding? I've already checked under here.

Mum bought me a new cocoon bed and I love it! Not only do I love curling up inside, I can also lean against it to sit up! And yes, Mr. Piggy is covered in my dinner, I’m a messy eater 🙈 #specialneedscats #specialneedspets #catsofinstagram #cats
Amidst the recent sad news of many lost fur family, we are happy to share some Senior Joy... On January 18, 1997 this very special girl was born: Miss Lala Mahoney! This birthdate has been confirmed by her mom who had her since she was a puppy, and although we’ve not seen the paperwork, we have every reason to believe Miss Lala might be the world’s oldest Chihuahua 🤩 Starting in April of last year, Lala spent 6 months with us while her mom was out of the country working. It was hard for us to say goodbye in October as we set out on our #antiqueroadshow , but we were hugely comforted to know Miss Lala was staying at the loving home of @gidgetthechi and Gracie where she continues to reside. Please join us as we celebrate this ancient Birthday Beauty! Happy 22 Lala!!! ⭐️ #oldisthenewnew #feeling22 #secondchancesforblinddogs #antiquechihuahua #seniorlove #happy22lala ✨Lala is wearing a #muffinshaloforblinddogs from @muffinshaloforblinddogs Yes, it works and keeps her safe!😇

I’m speechless. Thank you, Rob @robreztattoos. 🐶❤️♿️💪🏼🎨 BTW, Rob isn’t just a brilliant artist, he’s also a special needs dog dad. 📷: @cmerry
#justwhatthedoctorordered Took #puffcorn to the #veterinarian today. She should start #feelingbetter soon. It was an #allergicreaction #ulcer and #dehydration Since she is so small, dehydration occurs a lot faster than for a big dog. This is the second time she's had an #emergency #vetvisit for her #allergies in less than a year, but she is totally #worthit #specialneedspets #servicedog #dog #doggo #instadog #dogsofinsta #dogsofinstagram #puppygram #dogsofig #puppy
Omg it’s wonderful thank you @robreztattoos for the painting of Oscar and your letter made me cry happy tears hey @oxdad I can’t wait for you to see this in person tonight THANK YOU 🙏🏼🐶 🖼 🎨 🎉🎉

A loving and happy #throwbackthursday From my heart: This Individual was like my little son (probably even more so because he weighed fifteen pounds and fit into a variety of baby clothes, and he liked to be carried and hand-fed😂)Ahhh, behold My Last Living Dog: Nick The Seventeen-Year-Old, deaf, papaya-and-rice eatin’, incessantly-barking, ferociously growling, ankle-biting ANGEL. With him I toured, travelling in busses and planes, met and married boys, and worked and loved and lived. Of course, all of the years, as well with his little dog wife (my other precious baby, Anna The Naughty Bichon Baby, who pre-deceased him by five years) Nicklas was The Family Patriarch and He was The Greatest! Yeah.....I have never really gotten over the loss, and I am very grateful that his spirit ghost walks with me, and that I giggle remembering his terrible, beautiful breath and fuzzy gnarling lips🥰 My friends, I post pictures of my late dogs to encourage everyone to consider fostering or adopting a #senior pet or #specialneedspets for in many shelters all over the world, they linger, and they are in danger of being euthanized because of their age or, sometimes because they have a (manageable) condition. Please never be daunted to adopt a senior animal, and know that it will be heart opening and important no matter what, or for how long. You will be saving a life, but they will also be saving YOURS. Ask at your local shelter if they have #senioranimals and take it from there. 👍🏼💕💕💕 #adoptdontshop #tbt #malteserescue #noteeth #toothlessbiting #breath #eyelashes #kissonthenostrils #gaaaaahthatbadbabysofunny #thankyougod #missyounick

Meet Behr my disabled fur child who just turned 7 this month. He was born with the dog equilvalent of what down syndrome is in humans (If you look it up online you’ll see all the animals who have the syndrome all look similar.) Signs & symptoms are poor eyesight, unusual facial & physical features, hearing problems, congenital heart disease, random pain because his entire body is affected by the abnormalities, extreme behavioral issues, and much more. When I got Behr he was in pretty bad shape: anemia, fleas from head to toe, suffered from seizures, and so much more. The fact that he survived birth being a premature pup, rejection from his mom, and siblings is a miracle. Usually puppies with his condition die before they’re even born. If it does survive veterinarian’s tend to prevent them from living longer than a few days. Birth is very intense for the puppy which can also lead to death. Caring for him is a full time job & at first was truly a very lonely & sometimes tear invoking journey. Not knowing any answers & taking him to countless vets to only hear that “He isn’t normal” begun to sound redundant and frustrating (It’s still considered an unrecognized disorder in animals due to lack of scientific research.) I refused to give up on him. I was not going to attribute to the pet statistics of abandoned dogs in the US. Approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter U.S. animal shelters nationwide every year. Each year, approximately 1.5 million shelter animals are euthanized (670,000 dogs and 860,000 cats). I knew the likelyhood of anyone keeping him for longer than a few days was slim to none because he was previously returned over 3 times before I adopted him. I want to start sharing more about his condition as it could help people who are experiencing the same challenges as a new pet owner of a special needs dog. On my next post about Behr I want to talk more about the personal challenges I struggled with caring for him. Do you or someone you know have a disabled dog?! Please share as I’m trying to spread awareness.
“Can He Run?” I am asked that question a lot.. well here he is!... ———————— Yes when he wants to he can:-) 😎💪🏼👏🏼 He need a motivation like we do and some friendly competition 😉🐾 ———————— There are No Limits to what We Can Achieve. Nico has a Fighting Spirit!! Nothing keeps this dog down 👏🏼👍 #packwalk #packlife #k9training
Progress. Goals. Nothing is impossible.💪🏼👏🏼👏🏼🐾🐾❣️
