Among so many troubling stories in the news lately, we bring you one of hope: a paralyzed kitten who, we’re quite convinced, will walk again soon.
This little darling is named Jefferson, another sweet kitten with rear-leg paralysis who has come to the loving arms of Tenth Life. Seriously injured when caught in a closing door, the four-week-old kitty suffered pulmonary and spinal bruising. His human took him to the clinic for care, and, upon learning the high cost of saving him compared with her own finances, reluctantly and with a broken heart, elected to euthanize him. However, a kind-hearted veterinary technician at the clinic was unable to bear the idea of this tiny guy losing his life. She was familiar with our miracle kitty Lincoln’s success of overcoming paralysis, and with hope, she stepped in to save little Jefferson. The compassionate tech then reached out to Lincoln’s mama, Bobbi, to see if she could help. And when Bobbi asked us if the little guy could be a Tenth Life kitty, the answer was immediately and unequivocally “yes!” 
Jefferson saw one of our specialist veterinarians yesterday, and she felt he had a very good chance of regaining the use of his hind legs. So, physical therapy has begun! Bobbi is using the same exercises she did for Lincoln one year ago, and we’re hopeful that he’ll be back on his feet soon.

Soli is one of my very favorite Tenth Life cats! She’s sassy and knows her own mind. Her snaggle tooth makes her very special!

Sweet Soli was brought to one of our partner veterinary clinics due to a visible injury to her mouth and jaw. The skin on her lower jaw and chin had been pulled away from her teeth and jawbone and was hanging below her mouth. Our veterinarians were able to repair her injury and she is as good as new! You can still see that something is different about her face, but she doesn’t mind at all. Soli eats wet and dry food with no problems. This spunky and very playful gal likes to rub your legs and follow you everywhere… especially when food is on the line. Soli took a while to warm up to her foster sister, Izzy, but now they’re good buddies. They groom each other, sleep together, and play vigorously. Soli does get along with other cats, but not dogs. It may take her awhile to adjust to a new family and home, but once she does, she’ll be your favorite little shadow. approx DOB January 2012
