Axel – Special Needs

Hi, My name is Axel.  I am a very sweet little boy that loves to cuddle, purr, sleep and play.   

I have some special needs as I was born with a slightly abnormal heart, but that doesn’t stop me from loving life. Axel has Pulmonic Stenosis (read more about this at the very bottom)

I am looking for my furever home where I can enjoy life, have lots of cuddles and be a wonderful little boy. I was born in mid May 2022

He is a wonderful little guy that loves to cuddle, snuggle, purr, play, nap and just be a kitten.  Axel has a heart condition that he was born with that will probably end his life sooner than it should, but until that time, he needs to be in a home that will love him and allow him to just be a sweet little guy.  We are hoping someone would be willing to love him and let him have an amazing home for what ever time he has !

He is good with other cats, eats well and has good habits.  He loves to sleep right on my chest, purring loudly.

Want to know how he got his cool name? Axel was found in Ladysmith, in the wheel well of a car which had just driven from Victoria at a rate of 100km while he was hanging on underneath. Poor thing but good thing he’s strong and held on! He’s safe and loved now!

Axel has Pulmonic Stenosis. ASSESSMENT:
The observed findings are consistent with pulmonic stenosis as the cause of the heart murmur. The pulmonic flow velocity, as well as chamber and wall sizes suggest that the degree of severity in this patient is moderate to severe. Many individuals with pulmonic stenosis are able to lead a relatively normal life, although unfortunately there is risk of developing signs of congestive heart failure, syncope or ventricular arrhythmias that may lead to sudden death, at some point in their lives.

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.
