Blossom has been rescued!!!!

When director Leslie Weiss got the message that this kitty was not doing well at the shelter, she knew exactly what had to happen. After putting out a call for a foster home for this scared little girl, a quick reply came from newest board member Chelsea Sutula. The next day Leslie and Chelsea headed for the shelter where we found Blossom hiding in a cage, inside a box in quarantine. She had bit and scratched someone and was deemed “unadoptable”. After her human passed, family members dropped her at the shelter. This is a scene that happens far too often when pet guardians neglect to make arrangements (for their pets) after they pass.

You could tell that the minute she was out of the shelter she began to relax. Even the car ride home found her looking out the window and then napping her way to freedom. .

Foster mom Chelsea reported that although Blossom had found safety under the bed in her new suite, she was able to pet her and felt that with time she would become more relaxed and ultimately find her fur-ever home.

Blossom had a brief exam before she left the shelter and along with a few fleas and severe dental disease, a growth was found in her mouth. She will need a dental in the next couple of months and we pray that the growth is nothing major.

We will need the help of our Surfcat supporters to make this dental procedure a reality. She has not been to see the vets at Ohana Pet Hospital because we wanted her to settle in but when she does we will need your donations.

For now we will work on making Blossom comfortable and stress free. We will keep you posted on her progress.

    Hi Leslie,
    I wanted to let you know how Blossom is doing in her “fur-ever” home. As you can imagine, when she first came home with me, she was her old skittish self. Within the next few days she set herself up in my studio, in her hooded bed, next to her food and water dish and litter box. She spent most of the next two weeks there. Every once and awhile we would see her little head poke around the corner. “Eck, eck, eck”, she would say.
    Flash forward 7 weeks and Blossome is easing her way into the pack nicely. She still prefers to have her “safe space” but now it’s in my sewing room in the garage. She comes out to see us quite often and we have long chats and lots of head butts. She and Jake and the dogs all get along nicely. She comes upstairs in the morning if I sleep past 6:30 am to remind me that it’s breakfast time. Blossom and Rich are couch buddies. She never misses checking in with him, even sitting in his lap! We love our little BB and she rewards us with a tiny bit more trust each day. Thanks for saving her, SurfCat!
