Dewey: Trapped behind a wall slowly dying.
I wanted to tell you an amazing story about a kitten that unfolded tonight.
Dewey and Hope were trapped behind a wall slowly dying. The home is unoccupied so we don't know how long they have been trapped. We don't know how they got there but their mom couldn't save them, and their fate was grim.
Thankfully, while showing the home, a realtor unlocked the door and heard the cries from the kittens. Our friends at Pathway to Hope got the call and within hours, they had the wall was down and an amazing hero we call Superman reached these babies.
With a heavy heart we tell you that it was too late for sweet Hope, a tiny buff colored kitten who was already dead. We named her Hope and her story will be told and legacy will live on. But, Dewey was clinging to life.
He was rushed to AERA emergency veterinarian with severe dehydration and an unreadable temperature. With intravenous fluids and warming, Dewey is bouncing back. Doctors feel he was likely trapped for 4-5 days with Hope.
Dewey's prognosis is hopeful - he weighs just 11 ounces and appears neurological, but that could be due to starvation. He is a little fighter who cried to save his life today. We are heartbroken for little Hope, but know her spirit lives on and together we can see Dewey survive!
We have partnered with Pathway to Hope to help raise the funds needed for Dewey's care. With every shirt, bracelet, tote or hoodie you can give this tiny kitten a second chance at a pain free life full of love.

A Pathway to Hope rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes stray and abandoned dogs and cats. We focus in two main areas: south to north rescue of northern breed dogs and the rescue of abandoned cats that cannot survive on their own. We are comprised of a small group of foster homes and are committed to the care of our rescue dogs and cats for as long as necessary. We have a network of volunteers from the southern states to the northeast, who transport, foster and screen potential adopters.
