One of three kittens that we had to bring into safety. Of the other two, one is black and one is a darker gray tabby. They are approximately 4-weeks old and so fuzzy and cute. I love the super symetrical markings on this one's face and the black patch under the chin.

- Wilson's eyes are looking fantastic with just the antibiotic eye ointment and the oral antibiotics. He is doing really well and will be neutered later this week or early next week. He is such a sweetheart.
- Wimbledon is recovery nicely, although he does not like being stuck in a cage and the antibotics are not setting well on his stomach so he has icky poop right now and I have lots of fun cleaning his cage and changing out bedding several times daily. He purrs as soon as you look at him and loves attention and wants to reciprocate and give people love in return. He'll go in for a checkup and to hopefully have his stitches removed next week. He was neutered the same day as his eye surgery since he was already under anesthesia.
Wilson will not be available for adoption for several more weeks after surgery because he will need a second FVRCP+FeLV vaccination. Wimbledon will need the same but also needs time to fully recover and adjust.
We want to extend a big thanks to Dr. Jon Dick at Magnolia Animal Hospital for such a successful surgery, and for taking such good care of our baby.

- Rescued on 9/13/09 with severe herpese virus and perforated left eye
- Exam and biomicropsy on 9/15/2009
- Surgery for eye enucleation (removal) on 9/18/09
The above picture is after his surgery while still at the vet's office.
Wimbledon is now at home recovering from his surgery. Look closely and you'll see the stitches where they removed his eye. Poor baby. But now he won't be in all that pain from a perforated eye and we'll get him healthy and find a great home for him.
Wimbledon's eye was so bad that we had to act fast to help him. But we need your help please. We need donations to help cover the cost of his surgery and ongoing medical care. Between the cost of the animal eye care specialist, his surgery today, and follow-up/ongoing care, we need to raise $500 for Wimbledon's vet care.
We would also like to extend a huge thanks to Michelle and Jeff, the couple in Charlotte, NC that adopted Daisy and Dakota (the "twin engines" because they have such great purr motors) for opening their hearts and homes to Wimbledon while he recovers from his surgery. They are also going to foster Wilson, Wimbledon's brother, since they will be on almost the same medication regime. Wilson is lucky, the herpes virus in his eyes isn't as bad, no ulcerations and he is already doing better after being on the oral antibiotics and antibiotic eye cream for less than a week.

Wilson's vision should be ok with oral antibiotics, L-Lyinse, and antibiotic eye ointment.
Wimbledon is not so lucky. His right eye should be ok with the above treatment per the specialists at Animal Eye Care but his left eye is very bad. His left eye is perforated and has a bacterial infection and needs to be removed (enucleation is the term for eye removal). It is important that we have the surgery as soon as possible so we have scheduled for Friday.
We need your help please. We need to raise money for the surgery and after-care -- including the Animal Eye Care visit, we need to raise about $500.00. And we need a quiet foster home for Wilson and Wimbledon to get better in and for Wimbledon to recover in. The foster home will need to administer oral medication and eye ointment and follow any post-surgery instructions from the doctor.
Please help if you can. We will post pictures soon.

Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue, Inc. is a purebreed and Box mix rescue based out of Hickory, North Carolina. BRBR’s current coverage area is the state of NC, as well as regions of South Carolina
She has decided that my boyfriend is her best friend and that his lap belongs to her. She has found perches that are now her thrones throughout the room. She is very interactive with all of us and has decided that she likes our laps especially my son and my boyfriend....She likes to be held and petted continuously while they are playing video games or watching TV. She has been found to watch the TV and games as well. She likes to talk and is very happy and content.
The puppies were very well behaved with her and stayed at a distance until she came to them. She smelled them and tentatively walked around them. Since they did not give chase, she will now come up to greet them and rub her head against them. The older dog was much more excited at meeting her and got a face full of claws for her effort. The dog now approaches with extreme caution and is greeted warmly now.
We have decided to change her name to Raven as we have a Superhero theme with the animals. She seems to like the name and comes when called. I think she is a perfect match and is blending with her new family wonderfully. I will send pictures of her and the other family members as I get them uploaded.
