This handsome cat is Roadie. At the start of December, he was hit by a car. Roadie laid on the street, watching the vehicles pass him - no one would stop to help him. Luckily a BAPS volunteer spotted the poor guy and rushed him to the vet. 
Roadie sustained minor scrapes, road rash and bruises. Overall he seemed to be doing great - except he couldn't use one of his legs, which suffered nerve paralysis. 

For the last month, Roadie has been with an amazing foster home who has been putting him through physio therapy. Despite all their efforts, we can not save Roadie's leg and it must be amputated. Watch a video of Roadie hopping around his foster home here:

Roadie is a super sweet guy who deserves the world. Roadie's amputation will cost upwards of $700 - so we are asking for assistance in aiding this endlessly happy, sweet cat. Every penny counts. 

Donations towards his care can be made in person at BAPS or online here: . Thank you for considering to aid sweet Roadie.

Magenta was surrendered to us 14 months ago. This year for Christmas she asked Santa if she could find a home. 
Well. Wish granted, Magenta! She was finally adopted to the perfect home. Way to go, girl! We miss you so much already.
Inka the cat was surrendered to us October 1 - her family was moving. Coming to BAPS was really hard on poor Inka. She grew stressed and depressed and gave up on life. She refused to eat, nothing helped. Luckily, an amazing foster family (The Kemps ) worked their magic and saved her. 
Once she was deemed healthy enough, Inka returned to BAPS. She took it better this time but was still really upset. She hated the other animals and was a grumpy lady.

.. I think she's finally settled in. This photo was taken last night. This morning she gave me a kiss on the nose. Now to find her a perfect, permanent home.
