Meet Rose, Rex, and Ryu
This month adoption spotlight highlights a determined Mom and her new babies. Rose was found near a shopping center by a Cartagena Paws volunteer. She was begging for food and had noticeably given birth recently. After giving her something to eat, the volunteer followed her back to her pups and rescued all three. Cartagena Paws worked with the volunteer to get Rose and her babies, Rex and Ryu, in to vet care, where they have been ever since. Rose is about 3 years old and true lover. She is always flipping over to receive belly rubs and dotes over her babies, making sure they are okay and well fed. One thing she does not like, though, are cats and would not be good for a home that has cats. Rex and Ryu are about 6 weeks old and just utterly adorable puppies. They love to be around each other and either pounce or snuggle with one another. At this time, Rose is ready to be adopted into her forever home! Rex and Ryu will be ready for adoption around mid-July.
At the end of April, our amazing friend Jaz rescued a mama cat about to give birth.
As the story of the good Samaritan goes those that are able take in those that are in need. One of the Cartagena Paws volunteer must have taken that story to heart when she opened her home to a pregnant cat. Jaz was going about her daily business when a she saw a young cat struggling to find a place to give birth. She brought the mire kitten herself into her home, in a true showing of compassion, and created a space for the birth of Pilar’s three kittens. Now 6 weeks old, Paco, Rambo, Gracie, and Momma, Pilar, are doing well under the care of Jaz. Pilar is an absolute sweetheart and shows complete appreciation for the woman who brought her in. Paco, Rambo, and Gracie are starting to grow into their personalities, but seem to follow suit with their mother. All 4 kitties are looking for homes in the near future!
Loki & Thor were found and rescued at only 3 weeks of age. They were bottle fed for 1.5 weeks after that and are in the process of being weaned. Both kittens will be available for adoption on March 3, 2018. They are both sweet and snuggly but definitely have their own special personalities!
A little about Loki: Loki is both the adventurous one and the cautious one. He is climbing and jumping already (scaring his foster mom half to death)! He loves to explore but also is the first one to be at your feet when you go to look for them. He loves snuggles and the people around him - and especially loves to play with your hair! He isn't so sure of the large monster (dog) that he's living with right now, but he's getting used to her.
A little about Thor: Thor is the brave (and hungry) one! He has no problem walking right up to his foster sister (a large golden retriever) and booping her on the nose! He is also the calmer and quieter of the two brothers and enjoys a good game of hide and seek (...aka finding a secret place to take a nap!) Thor is most likely to pass out in your arms and nuzzle your cheek, and there is nothing sweeter than that!
From our Founder, Maureen. “I met a wonderful woman this weekend named Kathrin Hausermann. Kathrin and I have been talking for some time on what’s app, and I was finally able to make it out on a visit to her house and see all the wonderful things she is doing for the cats of Cartagena.
Kathrin is spending her days taking care of 8 beautiful kittens and a momma cat. We made a plan together to get them all healthy, vaccinated and fixed and then off to their forever homes! One of the kittens is blind and one is blind in one eye. We are determined to help them and get healthy and adopted out.”
