Abys in Need: Alaska in Staten Island, NY

Okay…brace yourself. This is a really sad one. Alaska is a seven-week-old Aby kitten who was left to be euthanised at a vet’s office because of birth defects.

This is what the posting says about her: “Alaska is a 7 week old Abyssinian female kitten that was brought into my vet office to be euthanized by her breeder because of her disability. She is partially paralyzed due to a congenital defect and has some physical deformity. Because of her paralysis, she has no bowel control and needs hr bladder manually expressed. Despite all that, she is the sweetest thing and has such a thirst for love and life. If someone would be willing to put in the time she needs for her care, she would enrich anyone’s life. Please give Alaska a chance!

LOOK AT HER! Okay, so…she needs a diaper now. She could grow out of that! But she’s gorgeous! Her adoption fee is $50, and since she’s a tiny kitten (I mean, too young to be away from her mother, tiny!) she’ll need to be spayed and get her shots. She’s still a beautiful girl and she needs the right home that will nurture her special needs. And who knows, she could be the next Buzzfeed sensation.

Abys in Need: Jellybean in Anjou, Québec

Four months old, people! FOUR MONTHS!!!

Jellybean is a four-month old Abyssinian. She has been put up for adoption because she has luxating patella, level 3 or 4, on both sides. She has no trouble getting around, and doesn’t seem to be in pain. But with time, if this condition isn’t treated, she is at risk for developing arthritis. As her condition is fairly serious, we strongly recommend surgery. Failing that, she will need glucosamine supplements or a special food for healthy joints. It will be especially important that she not be allowed to become overweight. Jellybean is adorable, sociable and affectionate. She is declawed on all four paws. Her adoption fee is $150, which includes spaying, deworming, first vaccine, and microchip.
