After Mimi, and very recently, Jose very unfortunately disappeared it became clear that we had to hurry to provide especially the cats with safe housing. As you can see in the previous post, the catteries and dog kennels are coming along very nicely. On the other hand, we managed to save and/or help a few more needy animals. Here are their portraits:

Update 18 Nov.: Chikka died while in the care of his owners. The tumor was not removed entirely and the remainder grew back. Most likely it was so agressive that it had already spread throughout his body. How sad …

Update 25 Dec.: Kitten Roady somehow drew the agression of Snowy (one of our dogs). Being too small to fight her off, he suffered a bite which started an infection of which he died. I was shattered to hear this news. Only a short time before our safe haven for cats is ready, he fell victim to one of the many dangers that cats here face. Thank God that we were able to rescue him from the street and give him a relatively trouble free childhood …

Update 25 Dec.:Fortunately there is good news as well. Smeagol II was adopted by one of the ASU students. I had to leave him in the care of ASU because our shelter wasn’t finished at the time and he carried the contagious mange mites. He soon turned into the ASU VetMed’s most favourite pet, which resulted in his adoption. Fabulous!!!
