Kit Kat




Kit Kat is a young spayed female, almost a year old, who came to CROW when her owner died suddenly.


Yoda has been adopted!

And his new family paid his remaining vet bill balance as well. Yoda is now Nimbus and is happily settled in his new home. Yay!


Thank you to everyone who helped to make this happen!


Confirmed Case of H1N1 in Iowa Cat

Or as Yahoo! news reports, "I Can Has Swine Flu?"

This Wednesday, the Iowa Department of Public Health reported the first confirmed case of H1N1 in any house pet. The patient is a 13-year-old house cat. Two of the human family members had been sick, so vets at the Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine tested the cat for H1N1, and the test came back positive.

Here's the H1N1 patient

Lydia--Grumpy Senior Cat

Lydia is an old lady cat whose owner died. She languished, depressed, in a small cage for several weeks afterward, and then transferred to CROW. She hid under the bed growling at everyone who walked by for about a week, and is still prone to snapping unpredictably. However, she is declawed and nearly toothless and couldn't hurt a fly. Her temper tantrums are decreasing, and she purrs mightily, loves being petted, has a love/hate relationship with the brush, and has slept in human arms the past two nights. Her heart is opening again and she is feeling love.




She has difficulty with her hind legs, and has an awkward gait, and falls if she is rushed. The rest of her body is very coordinated. She is so old and skittish that it will be a couple of weeks before she can handle getting blood drawn, but plans are in place to evaluate her as much as possible in the meantime.
