Weirdo Cat Lovers of Cleveland is more than just emergency vet visits and TNR. Our wonderful community comes together on a daily basis to help find fur babies their furever homes. Here are just a few success stories of cats that have been rehomed through Weirdos.
Squirt couldn’t resist tasting his mother’s beautiful flowers she got for Mother’s Day, causing him to need a vet visit. Squirt had blood work done and was sent home with sub-q fluids and an order for more blood work to make sure he was in the clear.
“Squirt is back to being his ornery self and we will never have anymore flowers in the house ever L OL. The Weirdos are awesome! Always helping those in need and making sure things fall into the hands of the right people. Plus, it’s always a fun laugh when I look at the page. I love seeing all of the kitties being kitties! You guys really are helping people and it shows! I am very grateful for this group and will continue to show my support in anyway I can.”
Itty Bitty was taken to the vet after his mom found him extremely lethargic,
throwing up and hiding. The vet determined Itty Bitty had gotten sick from a mouse he had gotten a hold of a few nights before. He was given fluids, medication, and soft food to eat until his tummy felt better.
“Itty Bitty has been like a brand new Kitty since he was seen. I am beyond grateful to the Weirdos for helping us and being so kind. The group, the admins, and everyone else who helps run the page are above and beyond beautiful, caring souls. Even days after Itty Bitty was seen, the team still contacted me to check up on him. I’m so very thankful to be a part of the
wonderful Weirdo community. ” -Christine Lewis
Lucy had stillborn babies and needed to get to the vet to make sure she would be okay. Lucy had X-rays done to make sure there wasn’t any retained birth and was given antibiotics to make sure she was free of any infection.
"Since Lucy's appointment, she has been different in a good way! We named her Lucy because it was short for Lucifer. Before she never liked to be held or pet at all. Now she jumps up on my lap and snuggles with me and adores her belly being rubbed. I am forever grateful to all of the wonderful Weirdos. Lucy is doing great and it's all thanks to them." - Lindsay Meyers
Vader’s mom came home and found him struggling to breathe so she rushed him to the emergency vet. Vader was given IV fluids, oxygen therapy and medication. Vader has beginning heart failure and a grade 3 heart murmur so he will need to stay on medication and go for follow ups, but thanks to his treatment he will have years left to be loved.
“Vader is doing amazing. He’s eating like a champ, drinking well, and taking his meds better than you’d expect! My fiancé and I both have alarms set at the time for his meds, and when he hears those go off he knows! A t first we had to wrap him up like a burrito, but now he comes running to the coffee table and sits there waiting. We also found out he has a level 3 heart murmur, so we have to monitor that on top of his hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. We will continue to take him for follow up testing to make sure his heart is doing okay and his organs are not being affected by his medicine. Vader is very active with his brothers, Chewy and Nugget. He’s so happy and is still as mean as can be! He definitely thinks he’s the king of the house. I love and adore each and every one of the Weirdos for helping us and our chonky boy Vader. Without the Weirdos we would have lost him. He’s definitely our special little chonk chonk and we love him so much. We will forever be in awe of the Weirdos kindness and generosity.” -Samantha Keener
Mr. Kitty was rushed by his mom to MedVet with a urinary blockage. He spent the night at MedVet and then was transferred to Able Animal Hospital. After spending a few days being treated there, Mr. Kitty was finally ready to go home.
“Mr. Kitty has been 100% better since he was treated. He is loving life and tearing up the house like a normal cat. I’m so happy I have my happy kitty back! The Weirdos are amazing people. I love and am grateful for every single one of them. I will forever pour my heart out to them! ”

Girly Girl was taken to Able Animal Hospital to be treated after surviving a house fire. She was missing for 10 days and was dehydrated and malnourished. Able took X-rays, did blood work, gave her fluids and antibiotics and kept her for a few days to make sure she was okay.
“Girly Girl is doing fantastic!! My family and I are so grateful to the Weirdo Group. They literally saved Girly Girl’s life! ” -Tammy Scaggs
Mr. Bumble was admitted to the ER with a urinary blockage. After spending time with his vet and a weekend sleepover at MedVet, Mr. Bumble’s blockage was cleared and he was able to go home.
“The Weirdos are a blessing. They truly are an amazing community! And Bumble is doing ahhhmazing. He is all healed with his new diet and is really back to his old self! I was so worried for him when he was sick. I’m so glad he is better!” -Danielle Alanna
Charlie had to be taken to Able Animal Hospital to be treated for a ruptured anal gland. He was sent home with medication and went back for a two week checkup to make sure he was healing properly.
"Charlie is doing great and is back to his normal self. He is my little ham and loves having his picture taken. I love the Weirdo group and am very grateful for their help."
Hadley had a UTI/Blockage. He was given fluids and medicine to flush out his bladder but it did not work. After a catheter and a sleepover at the hospital, Hadley was no longer blocked and was
able to go home.
“Hadley has been doing wonderful! He has his own fountain, and he has been playing with his siblings. We keep a litter box separate for him in my office, just in case he doesn’t want to go in the same boxes as the other cats. He’s still a chubby snuggly baby and he sleeps with us every night. He still tries to open door handles with his paws if we don’t open them when he wants us to, L OL!
I adore the Weirdos. Their page is the best place for non-judgmental and helpful information. We are super thankful to them for the help we got, and because of it try to help and donate any time we can. I really appreciate all of the Weirdos!” -Des Arae Nichole Meinke
