Yarrow's mother was a feral cat that was living under the garage of an apartment complex with tiny Yarrow and his siblings. A concerned tennant contacted our rescue for help. We were able to catch Yarrow and one of his brothers by use of a humane trap and some yummy food. Now we are trying to rehome Yarrow and Geranium, his brother.

Yarrow had one heck of a fight to stay here with us. he developed Pneunomia and a horrible eye infection. If that wasn't bad enough, despite veterinary intervention, he also had a severe case of intestinal worms that killed 7 kittens he was being housed with. He lost weight, became dehydrated and very weak. We had to bottle feed him every few hours to keep him with us. After being treated for all of the above, Yarrow was well on his way to making a full recovery. He just went in for his neuter surgery which went great.

Yarrow was delt another blow while in for his neutering; we were told Yarrow has a bilaterial agenesis of his upper eyelids. This means that he did not develop his eyelids properly while in mom's belly, thus causing his lashes to rub directly on his eyes. This also does not allow his eyes to stay lubricated. This is what was causing his eye infections. He also has Neovascularization and a possible ulcer inside his eye. We were informed that this will get worse as he gets older. This condition requires surgery. While BDSC fully commits ourselves to every animal we take into our rescue, this will be a costly expense for Yarrow. We are in the process of finding out what is involved and how much it will cost to help this kitty live a normal life once he has his surgery.

Through all this, Yarrow has remained a social butterfly! He has the sweetest temperment and just loves to be held. He has come a long way from the shy little kitten we took in two months ago. If you could please find it in your heart to sponsor Yarrow or make a donation toward his surgery, it would be greatly appreciated. We operate solely on donations and will have to raise the money before we can get Yarrow his surgery and finally find him his forever home!

**UPDATE 3/12/09
Yarrow and Geranium have had their surgery and everything went wonderfully! They need a week to heal and will be ready for adoption! Please apply now...Yarrow is hoping to find his new home just in time for Easter:)
