The Foster Kitten Project


Saving Kittens One Bottle At A Time

The Foster Kitten Project specializes in orphaned and abandoned neonatal kittens, defined as newborns up until four weeks of age.

Many shelters are unable to take in these kittens due to their intensive round the clock care, because of this; they are one of the largest groups euthanized in the United States every year.

The Foster Kitten Project rescues these kittens and gives them a fighting chance at life.

Ghirardelli "GG" Is Finally Having Surgery

But first, let's take you back to how it all started

Good samaritans found Ghirardelli "GG" a neonatal kitten in 2019 after his mother passed away. He was a solid brown kitten, hence his name. When he was ready for adoption, we took him to a few events where he cuddled with people in hopes of finding his furever family. However, he started having irritable bowel syndrome, and we removed him from the adoption list.

Back in foster care, GG suddenly had difficulty walking too. At eight months old, he had radiographs in addition to many other tests, and he was diagnosed with bilateral luxating patellas, meaning his kneecaps pop in and out of place. He also has elevated liver enzymes, but, thankfully, his liver is functioning correctly at this time.

Even with the early bilateral luxating patellas diagnosis, orthopedic specialists recommended we wait until he was a year old, when his growth plates were fully formed, before surgery. Waiting has its own side effects as his femurs have become a bit bowed, and he will always have some pain. It is also uncommon for cats to need correction to their kneecaps, so there are some nuances we will have to navigate like; post-op care will take months.

A: This is where GG's kneecaps are on both legs, 'X' is where they should be.


B: GG's kneecap should be seen here, but it is toward the backside.


C: These grainy areas are inflammation. The smallest circle is the most inflamed because it should be white.

Success!

The good news is that GG can have a long and happy life thanks to our wonderful supporters that raised $3000 for him to have his surgeries beginning in January 2021. We will keep you updated on GG's condition and let you know when he is ready to be matched with his furever family.

Ghirardelli "GG" Is Recovering


January 13, 2021

GG has had his first surgery and is still recovering. It is quite difficult to keep a kitty from being active, while still socializing him. He also has to have physical therapy, which thankfully, our veterinary technician can do from home.


In a few weeks, he will have the pins taken out of his first knee surgery. At the same time, the veterinarian plans to do surgery on his second knee. We will keep you updated on how he’s doing as he still has many months of recovery before we will start taking applications for his adoption.
