The Charmed Ones and The Winchesters



The Charmed ones, a litter of five 4 week old kittens, were being cared for by their momma cat and a kind human when they all came down with upper respiratory infections.  We are currently housing them as they have fully recovered from their illnesses.  They still pile up and create quite the purring symphony!  They are affectionate and playful.  They have been known to wreak havoc...guess they are true purrty animals!  Despite minor complications with Phoebe and Leo, we anticipate spaying, neutering and microchipping all of them this month!


Sam and Dean, siblings of just 2 1/2 weeks old, were found in a woman's backyard undernourished and covered in bite wounds and fleas.  They were both treated for the bite wounds and were both bottle fed.  Sam, the black kitten,  was extremely underweight.  His brother, Dean, was significantly larger than him.  Flea anemia could have been a factor as well as a systemic infection from the bite wounds.  
On December 7th, I noticed Dean was sleeping more than normal.  He just wasn't himself.  I started him on some immune support remedies I had at home thinking maybe he had a cold.  Over the weekend, I started him on subcutaneous fluids as his appetite was decreasing.  By Tuesday, he was diagnosed with fiv, a high fever and a heart murmur. He was sent home on antibiotics.  I have been treating him with a whole host of injectable and oral vitamins, a kitten smoothie made of pre and probiotics, whole food and apple cider vinegar,  immune support remedies, natural anti-inflammatories and cbd oil.  December 18th was the first day I saw his tail wag. It was the first day he followed me from room to room.  His appetite is better but not normal.  His temperature has waxed and waned but today it is a high normal.  His murmur has dissipated.  
His once smaller brother, Sammy, is now his bigger brother.  Sammy, who was once the comforted is now his brother, Dean's comforter.  I am hopeful that together, with his spirit, his fur family's love and his care routine, we can beat this and get this little fighter healthy again!  Please if you would say a little purrayer for my Deano, I would greatly appreciate it.  He needs all the positive energy, healing light and purrayers he can get.  
You can follow Dean's progress on my Instagram account, along with many other furbabies in our RPPS family.


UPDATE:  Happy to report Dean is quickly putting weight back on and is certainly trying his darndest to catch up to his brother, Sammy!  Both kittens are super affectionate and super playful!

Odin Paka and Kimba in search of furever homes

Kitties featured in our GoFundMe fundraiser


Odin, a handsome young champagne shorthair, was found on the side of a major Westchester highway late at night emaciated, dehydrated and covered in healing and open wounds.  I nursed him back to health.  He has gained ten pounds since he was first found!  He is doing well.  Odin is looking for his furever home.  I believe he would be most happy in a home as a single cat. He's a very muscular & active cat.  I think he would love exploring with his human...maybe in a kitty packpack and of course, with a harness and leash. He would be a great companion for a single guy.  He seems to be a man's cat.  Please email me in interested in adoption.

Paka and Kimba were living in very poor conditions.  Their caretaker was too ill to care for them.  They were emotionally abandoned, frightened and alone when I learned of their circumstance.  Ruffly Purrfect went in and retrieved these two kitties.  It has taken months of vet care, good food and TLC to nurse these kitties back to health, both physical and emotional.  They are both looking for their forever home.  They are extremely bonded.  They would love a home with a screened in porch where they could safely enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the outdoors while cuddling with each other. Please email me if interested in adoption.

Leah is still looking for a furever home

Leah

From Leah's human guardian:  "Leah will be 11 this April. We adopted her from North Shore Animal League when she was about 9 weeks old. She’s been with us ever since, an an indoor cat only (she does love hanging out on the gated deck in nice weather ðŸ˜Š). She’s not your typical cat who prefers to be independent and aloof with people, and is rather quite sociable, wanting to be with her people. She’s a snuggle bug who will soak you in endless face kisses if you can stand it!  Leah’s getting older but is still very playful. She loves playing with toys, basking in the sun, and eating!  She’s a healthy cat, spayed, fully vaccinated. We have never had her around other cats. I would think she would not receive another cat well as she has more of a dominant personality. She was in charge of our 212 pound Mastiff- in a good way, though!  She tried to be in charge of our puppy Labrador, but he’s too bouncy and playful to even care. So she keeps her distance from him. So I would say she would be good with other dogs who are more submissive in the pack. And not to mention, how beautiful Leah is. She’s truly stunning; her eyes and fur color are magical. We are hoping to transition her into a home where she can live out rest of her life happily. I was in touch with a married couple for nearly a month, and just before they were supposed to meet her the wife disclosed that she wanted to see if she would react to Leah because she can have allergic reactions to SOME cats. That did not sit well with me at all, and I declined their application. So now we are back to our search for her furever home."  If you are interested in adoption, please email me.

16 week old brother & sister duo looking for a furever home together

An adorable sibling duo 

Furever homes are needed for these two cuties.  They are approximately 16 weeks old.  The black and white kitten is a girl and the tabby and white is a boy.  Their brother and sister already found a furever home around Thanksgiving.  I am told these two are absolute dolls!  Please email me if interested in adoption.

Bidding farewell to my friend, Misty

Misty

This month I bid farewell to this lovely lady.  Misty, once known as Mindy, suffered the loss of her human guardian and shortly after, her feline brother, Mork.  She was living with her human guardian's daughter but she was not thriving.  Her human mommy reached out to me and I reached out to a couple I had known for some 20 years.  They had just lost their female kitty and I thought Mindy would be a purrfect fit.  It was love at first sight!  Mindy was renamed Misty and she blossomed in her new home.  I was blessed to witness it.  This was a kitty who hid from me in her previous home.  In her new home, I could hug, kiss and snuggle with her!  Mom and Dad retired recently and decided it was time to return to the UK.  This photo was from my last stay with Misty just a couple of weeks ago.  I am going to miss this baby girl so purry much!  Mom and Dad will visit the states and stay in touch.  Please join me in wishing this lady and her Mom and Dad a wonderful retirement in the UK.
