Tough Triplets - A Rescue Story
Last February we connected with a small rescue in Huntsville who did not have access to a vet and got overwhelmed with a few more serious medical cases.
We welcomed a set of 3 siblings who are absolute sweethearts who dont let their issues slow them down, or hold them back from loving their foster dad!
Not every rescue has access to regular vet care that is affordable for the large number of animals that come through their doors. This was the case for a smaller cat rescue in Huntsville who had been struggling to make sure the ongoing treatment of more serious medical issues for some of their animals.
We took in a total of 5 of their cats who were in need of more serious medical care, and 3 of them were litter mates with diverse and chronic issues.
Meet Darla, Phenix, and Charlotte, and follow their journey to health with us and their foster dad.

It has been a long and difficult year for the triplets Darla, Phenix, and Charloette who joined us a year ago (Feb 2022). We have been working hard with our vet to get them to a healthy enough point where a much needed surgery and specialist appointments could be done. Each of them have their own unique issues and areas of concern, and we are so thankful to our local vet clinic who has been able to work diligently in monitoring and adjusting their care.
This month, Phenix had to undergo dental surgery to remove 6 rotted teeth threatening his over all health. With his reoccurring urinary issues, he wasn't healthy enough to be able to withstand the harsh effects anaesthesia can bring until now. It was a short trip at the vets, only a few days, and our vet was able to easily remove the problematic teeth, and get him back home for snuggles from his foster dad and sisters.
At her annual check up, the worst was discovered; she is not able to fight off the infection enough and her whole mouth is degrading at a rate our vet feels requires a specialist. She spent a few days at the vets to reduce the massive infection she is currently has, while she waits to see a specialist.
Darla will need an extensive extraction surgery to remove multiple teeth that are rotting and contributing to her reoccuring infection. The estimated cost of her overall treatment is over $6,000.
We are on the wait list to see a specialist for her as well to see if we can get answers to why her skin is having such issue and she is unable to grow hair. Charlotte has been a sweet girl, letting her foster dad administer her medications, and she enjoys her hypoallergenic food, and while it has reduce the inflammation and majority of the itching, she is not improving as much as we hoped.
