Nugget came to us after we trapped him and hundreds of other cats and kittens !   Nugget came into our care as a wee baby and so sick we weren’t sure if he would make it.    He had a severe eye infection that took multiple medications 5 times a day for weeks and weeks.  But thankfully it worked and we were able to save his eye !   It is still always a bit weepy now but otherwise it is fine !      Since we had to provide so much ongoing medical care to Nugget he sadly had to be caged for months so that we were able to get the medication into him so many times a day.   This of course meant that poor Nugget didn’t get to run and play and do normal kitten things.    Once his eye was finally better he was finally sprung from his cage and was able to Be FREE !    He was pretty crazy and all over the place at first.   But he has come along way .. he still gets overly stimulated easily but we are so happy to have him be able to run and play and be a normal cat!  He is in a foster home with Many cats and kittens and he was able to learn a few things off the other cats In the foster home.  he really needs a home with another playful spunky cat as he loves all the other cats in the foster home !

He needs a home where he will be loved and adored with all his quirks.   He will melt your heart if you just give him the chance
He has had such a sad start in life that we know he didn’t get all he needed to learn and socialize properly.    But we all love him and his quirky personality .. 

Nugget was diagnosed with FIP (Feline infectious peritonitis) earlier this year. Years ago there was no treatment but thankfully there is now ! He had his full 84 days of treatment and then we re-tested him 84 days later and his blood work came back all clear (July 2021) ! He is back to his old self, playful and spunky !

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
