When we received the call in 2008 about a paralyzed, incontinent kitten, we knew his prospects would be bleak. If we didn’t agree to take Pear, and care for him indefinitely, there was no telling what would happen to him. Bideawee decided right then and there that we would care for him for as long as he was with us, and given his extreme needs, we understood this would likely be for the rest of his life, and we would give him the needed love and attention he deserved. Each day, Pear needs to have his diaper changed frequently as he has no bowel or bladder control due to his neurological impairment. But while he can’t move his back legs, he can get around faster than many of our four-legged cats and dogs. Pear spends his days relaxing in the Bideawee Learning Center with other resident cats and takes turns going home with the staff on holidays and weekends. Sponsoring Pear would enable Bideawee to continue our commitment to his needs for the rest of his life.
