Facts about Princess Zelda

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 11356
  • Hair: Unknown

Princess Zelda was hit by a car at approx 6 months old, she has no use of her back legs but her spirit is strong and definitely alive. We rescued her when we found out that her family was going to just put her down. She uses her litterbox faithfully, nothing was injured as far as that goes. She gets around beautifully and I doubt there are many kitties that can love with her capacity. If you meet her and your heart doesnt melt, you may check for a heartbeat :-) Zelda would need to make sure she is in a home where she would not be able to get out and no stairs that she could fall down. She cannot jump up on things so she would need help with getting on the bed etc. Come meet her, guaranteed you will fall in love! Zelda, girl, born 2013

Meet Princess Warrior Zelda! She deserves that title because she is such a fighter. She and a sibling kitten were outdoor kittens with a family (first uh-oh). Neither were spayed or neutered and just free to roam the neighborhood, which had traffic and a lot of it.

One day their female owner came home to find this doll baby severely injured. She ran with her to the veterinarian and it was not good. Both of her back legs were twisted, broken and paralyzed. The female owner just brought her home and into the home where she would not be allowed to stay. The male owner said she would have to be euthanized. The female saw the spirit still very much alive in Zelda, so she began to make calls and HELP Humane was one of them.

We took her into our care and our hearts broke, the twisted back legs frozen in that state was hard to see but we also saw that she had a will to leave and get past her accident and resulting injuries. Only a couple days after her arrival, we found babies aborted in her bed with her. Good gracious, how much can this girl be put through

Well, that was the last trauma she went through and has thrived here since that, which was a couple years ago. She scoots around and climbs (and jumps off) cat trees; basically nothing stops her! She lives a full life and is loved by so many. Oh and she is definitely ornery and takes up for herself with no issue. She doesn't always use the litter box because her anatomy is not "normal" so she gets infections frequently and she is on daily meds to help her with that.

About HELP Humane

About Our Shelter...

Who We Are:

HELP Humane: HELP Humane Inc. is a non-profit organization currently run by a small group of animal lovers in Cass County, MO (just south of Kansas City).

All HELP animals are treated by veterinarians receive age appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, spayed/neutered and those incoming after Oct 2005, have been micro chipped. Cats have been Feluk/FIV tested and are negative unless otherwise stated. Dogs have been heartworm tested and are on heartworm preventative.

HELP now has a no-kill shelter. HELP does not take in any owner relinquished animals. HELP rescues stray dogs and cats from the streets. We have been told by many adopters that the reason they liked adopting form us is because we have a happy place and all the cats are the friendliest ones they had ever met. HELP feels that ALL animal’s are worth saving. We have many FIV and FeLV+ cats in our care. They will live with us until they end their life’s journey or find a permanent home.

Currently we are in a financial crisis and desperately need more funding to continue our mission. We are also currently in need of foster homes. The more foster homes we have, the more pets we can help. We also need more volunteers and a grant writer. Of course donations of money and/or pet supplies are most helpful.

Our regular monthly meetings are at 7:00pm, the 1st Tuesday of each month. At our Shelter at 17122 Bel Ray Place, Belton, MO 64012.
