BREAKING MEWS! Another “lost cause” terminally ill former feral has gotten a furry tail ending instead of just an ending.
Moustachio (a.k.a. Stashy) was very sick when we brought him in, desperately in need of dental surgery with kidneys that were barely functioning. His condition was so grave initially that we weren’t sure what the most compassionate decision would be, but we needed to give him the best chance we could. Our philosophy as a no-kill organization is that if we can alleviate suffering, we do everything in our power to do so. It is only if we are unable to alleviate suffering that we will euthanize.

So, we managed his pain, removed 15 teeth (and one foreign object), and began aggressive treatment to see if he would stabilize enough to have a good quality of life. Our awesome volunteer snugglers made sure he got several hours of petting and cuddles every day, while the amazing Gwen spent hours making sure he got the very challenging medical care he needed.
As of this week, we are thrilled to announce that his mouth is healed, his kidneys are stable (although still terminal), and his medical regimen is manageable. He was able to depart this morning for his sunset foster home at Leo, Bobbi, Bowie & Big Brother Jager, where he will get all the love, joy and comfort (along with diligent medical care) he needs to ensure his sunset months are the best he’s ever had.
We are SO grateful for the wonderful people who take on special needs, challenging, senior, and terminally ill cats and kittens so they can have a chance to experience the life they deserve. It is very hard on the hearts of the humans who take them in, but literally makes the difference between a life worth living, and death for these animals who would otherwise be written off as “lost causes”.

Sabrina Aliano Oh Stashy I can safely say that EVERYONE loves you. We wish you only the best. We hope that you'll enjoy your new friends and the warm and comfort of a new home. Kimseie: Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking him in and making sure his sunset months (Maybe years) are the best he'll ever have. You are a GOD sent and an angel.
Chris Cooper This just brings tears (of relief and happiness) to my eyes. Bless all of you for the wonderful, difficult, challenging and ultimately rewarding work you do for these precious souls. Love you guys
Jacquie Lowndes Stashy hit the jackpot when he showed up sick, in pain and undoubtedly terminal. His prognosis has changed in that he will spend his remaining time pain free, comfortable and in a home setting where he will be loved unconditionally. Thank you snugglers, Shelly and Kimsies for everything you have done for this boy and any and all of the cats and kittens who come into your loving care. You are all my heroes.
Jayne Eve Chava Palmer I'm almost overwhelmed by the brave and loving heartedness of the likes of Kimsies and Shelly, and many others associated with TinyKittens. To me, taking in an innocent, lovely creature such as Stash or Mason, whose time is known to be quite limited, and lavishing them with the kind of love they've never known, is the height of compassion. You're wonderfully strong, and just wonderful altogether.
