CAT HIGHLIGHTS

We have almost 200 domestic cats that reside at Cedarhill but here a a few highlights!

RAMA AND BAGHEERA

Rama and Bagheera came to Cedarhill a little over a year ago as kittens from a shelter. Cedarhill saved these two boys from being euthanized because at the time they tested FIV positive! Because Cedarhill takes in FIV/FeLV positive cats all the time,  they decided to help! Since it is possible for an infected mother cat to transfer FIV antibodies to her kitten(s), kittens who test positive may actually be negative for FIV after nursing. These antibodies from their mother may stay in their system until around 6 months old, and Rama and Bagheera were only a few weeks old when they came to Cedarhill. So, before they were put into the FIV/FeLV cat room, they were tested and it turned out that they were both negative! Rama and Bagheera love being at Cedarhill. They are so spoiled! We wouldn't want it any other way. 

HOPE, GIZMO, & BABY LOVE

Hope, Gizmo, and Baby Love arrived at Cedarhill in March of 2019. These three sisters, who are about one year old, came to Cedarhill from an animal hoarder. All three were kept in three separate cages their entire life. They were malnourished and had really no use of their back legs, had never been able to stand up properly because of how small the cages were. When the three sisters came to Cedarhill, they were extremely skittish due to never being handled by a human properly. As months have gone by, all three have opened up tremendously because of how amazing our caretakers are! Gizmo has realized that friskies and love are the best thing in the world! Hope runs from room to room in search of treats and her favorite caretaker, and she climbs up and nuzzles her neck and is perfectly content with being carried around all day.  Baby Love, who has a little trouble with her hips, stares at anyone who walks in the room and gives a little meow until someone walks up to her. She is still learning to trust, but she loves it at Cedarhill. These three are wonderful examples of what a little care and love will do to an abused and neglected animal. We are so happy to give them the life they deserve at Cedarhill. 

TITUS

Titus was found with his sister, Italy, both were malnourished and covered in flies and maggots. They were weak, underweight and suffering from sever dehydration and diarrhea. A good samaritan rescued them, and fostered them as long as she could.  Cedarhill swooped in and took them both in. With intense care, Titus was nursed back to health. Unfortunately, his sister was too malnourished and passed a few days after she arrived.  Titus is loving his new forever home at Cedarhill! He has turned into a spunky little cat. He thinks he runs the Big Cat House and has all the caretakers trained!  If he isn't roaming around the Big Cat yard, then he's most likely climbing the trees observing all of his surroundings. 

SCRAPPY

Scrappy came to Cedarhill as a kitten after he was found injured on a construction site. His hindquarters had been crushed and he could not use his back legs. He would drag himself around on his front legs. The staff began working with him and over a period of time, they determined if they held his tail up he could support himself on his back legs! Eventually he was able to stand on his own and walk on all 4 legs! It is not the way a normal cat walks but it gets him where he wants to go. He is now 8 years old! Every so often he has muscle spasms and it takes a few minutes to stand, but those never truly slow him down. He is an inspiration to all of us with his determined spirit!

Cujo

Cujo came to Cedarhill after being in the shelter system far too long.  He had been deemed unadoptable, because of his bengal status. His foster mom contacted Cedarhill and the rest is history!  Cujo is part bengal and all sass!  He is a very mild mannered cat and has adjusted well to life with his 140 new brothers and sisters.  He can be found running around the yard and watching the caretakers as they pass by on the john deere gator during feeding time.  His favorite thing is the world is his cat wheel and he will run and meow very loudly when he is showing off to anyone who will watch him. We love him very much and are glad to give him his forever home. 

AUTUMN

Autumn was abandoned by her owners after complications from a veterenary procedure left her without her eyesight.  She is one of the most loving cats at the Senior/Disabled Cat House, and it's so hard to think that her previous owners left her because of a complication after a surgery . Blindness didn't stop this sweet girl at all!  Autumn loves hanging around the Senior/Disabled Cat House with all her furry friends and caretakers. Whenever she gets excited or knows food is coming, she will walk in little circles! The caretakers will pick her up and set her down as kind of a "reboot". She is loved very much at Cedarhill and always will be.

PIPER

Piper came to us as a kitten born with locked patellas in her back legs and was very sick. Cedarhill nursed her back to health and she now a beautiful resilient cat who is loved by her caretakers! She has become the "welcome wagon" for the new cats who are placed at the Senior/Disabled Cat House. She is always very interested in the new additions and makes sure they feel right at home! We are so lucky to have Piper at Cedarhill where we can give her a forever home.

TRUDY

Trudy came to Cedarhill in July of 2017. She was found by a local farmer in a corn field, soaking wet, malnourished and confused.  The farmer brought her to the vet not knowing what he could actually do for her. Our wonderful vet saw a spark of life in little Trudy.  After extensive testing, and medicine, fluids and love she arrived at Cedarhill.   A week after she arrived, she had a very high fever and she seemed to take a turn for the worst.   We took her immediately to Dr. Blake,  where she was kept for nearly 6 months. She was returned to Cedarhill in wonderful health! Trudy is in our Senior/Disabled Cat House and is thriving! She can be seen running around trying to play with anyone willing. We love giving her the life she deserves at Cedarhill.

CHEVY

Chevy got his name by how he was found...under the hood of a Chevy truck! One of our caretakers rescued him before the person started his engine that morning.  He was hiding from local dogs in the area trying to chase him.  He was very skinny, and needed food and water but he was eager to love anyone who would hold him. He has such a beautiful coat, too! He is a Marble Tabby cat. Chevy  hangs out in the Big Cat House yard most of the time, but every so often he comes inside to say hi! We love having Chevy at Cedarhill, and are so grateful for the caretaker who saved his little furry life.
