Meet Tara, a sweet, loving six-month old kitten who needs an eye operation. Last March a litter of four kittens were found in a shed after their mother had been killed by a car. One was already dead, the other three had very bad upper respiratory infections and we suspect Calicivirus, as sadly, Tara was the only one who survived.
Tara’s third eyelid had adhered to her cornea and when we had her spayed, it was loosened, however, it reattached upon healing. We took her to an eye specialist, Dr. Segal, at Carolina Veterinarian Specialty in Winston-Salem, and she said it could again be loosened, at which time they would put a contact lens in the eye so it will not reattach.
The cost for this operation is $600.00 and we were hoping some of our friends of Paws & Claws Feline Rescue may be needing a tax deduction at the end of the year and could donate to Tara so that she could have the operation.
Tara also needs her “Forever Home” if anyone has a place in their heart and home – she loves our collie dog and sleeps with her. Tara also gets along well with all the other cats and kittens.
Thank you to everyone who has generously donated, adopted, or volunteered this year to help us save almost one hundred cats and kittens. We couldn’t do it without you

We need your help. As we mentioned in a previous post, we will be at the Statesville PetSmart the first 3 weekends in December for photos with Santa and we need some fellow animal lovers to help us out. We anticipate a lot of participation and could use some extra hands.
If you are interested in helping please email Jean as soon as possible - email@example.com.
Also, we are badly in need of cage cleaners and would greatly appreciate if someone could help by cleaning the cages one day a week, morning or afternoon/evening. It's really fun to interact with all the cats and kittens and not really very hard work at all.

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Kathy sent us an update on Sissy ( Isis ) – she said that she is doing wonderful and everything went great with her check-up.
Isn’t she gorgeous? Thank you, Kathy, for giving Sissy such a loving forever home.
We also want to let you know that we will be at PetSmart in Statesville the first three Saturdays in December and we will be taking pictures with Santa. Photos are only $9.95 and the profits benefit Paws & Claws, so bring your fur babies to see Santa, and we would appreciate it if you would spread the word.
We will also be at Petco in Mooresville the 1st and 3rd Saturdays in December. We have lots of kitten for adoption – why not adopt a kitten (or 2) for Christmas? They would be so adorable under the tree and they would really appreciate having a warm, loving forever home.
