What’s New at OMS?

January 16, 2013
  • We have about 75 cats currently residing in our shelter, including our two newest residents Oreo and Gino.
  • Sara and Beau continue to do well in their old age.
  • Mama went to the vet a few days ago with intestinal blockage, and is healthy once more
  • We have eight cats in isolation with upper respiratory tract infections
  • Emma is currently recovering from dental surgery
  • Smokey hurt his paw and had to have some shots
  • Gino had an upper respiratory infection, but is all healed now
  • Our goats are happy and healthy, and continue to enjoy their licorice treats!
  • Our bird sanctuary was attacked by a bear (twice!), and there were no casualties but our bird feeders and poles were badly damaged. We are fundraising to repair and rebuild!
  • We administer shots and fluids to cats ourselves, but we have a vet stop by each week to prescribe antibiotics and make sure all residents are healthy – cats can easily starve if they are congested and can’t taste food, or have dental issues preventing them from eating. At OMS, we work hard to ensure all illnesses are caught and treated early – but the costs add up. You can help!
  • We can always use old (clean) towels, rugs, and blankets as well as gift cards to any stores where we can buy cat food or supplies like paper towels, soap, bleach, litter. Can you help us?
