She is a 12 week old kitten that came in with a puncture on her right front leg and a large mass on her left hind leg. She was limping on the leg for a few days and then the owners decided to bring her in. We did radiographs and nothing was broken, fractured, and the body cavity was still intact. So, then we did an ultrasound and found that the mass was fluid filled. We took a sample from the mass and it was purulent (puss) filled. The doctor is going to drain the abscess, flush it out, put the kitten on antibiotics, and other treatments. The owners are unsure of how this happened. And the owners have had this kitten since birth. They have the other siblings as well. They wanted to save this baby, and do all they can to help her and we wanted to help them keep and save their baby. The kitten came back three days later for a drain removal, and has been dong well ever since.

This adorable little girl was found by one of the team members of NTPD running across Bruce B downs. As many people are aware, this time of year there is a substantial influx of kittens born to stray momma cats. The staff contacted HDRF to help take this previous baby in as all of the rescues we contacted are full and cannot take in any more rescues. We immediately took in this baby and had her checked out by the vet at NTPH. She is believed to be about 4 weeks old and only weighs 1lb. She is currently in a foster home learning how to be a house kitty and will be available for adoption in a few weeks once she gets spayed. Contact us today if you would like to adopt this little angel.

This is a sad story of a mama and her babies losing their owner.
Duchess was rescued by a good Samaritan when he found her on a building site. She was living on the streets of Tampa and had no where to go so he decided to take her home. A few weeks later to his surprise she had 4 babies!
One of the kittens was adopted by his friend and so he was left with the 4. Unfortunately Duchesses new owner sadly passed away and they were left in an apartment on their own.
Thankfully, the owner of the condo was aware of the kittens being there and took care of them and reached out to us for help.
Mama Duchess and her 3 babies were taken in and checked out by one of our vets and all are doing well. All will be spayed and neutered and ready for adoption in the upcoming weeks.
Mama is Duchess, roughly 18 months old. She is very loving and loves attention and cuddles!
Baby Vee ( black female with white v on her chest) - little troublemaker :) loves to play with her siblings
Binx - (all black male) - more timid than his sister but also very playful and loves to cuddle his mama
Callie (calico female) - such love bug! She has already been adopted from one of the vet hospital team members!!!
