Meet Wallace. He was trapped inside a wall in an abandoned house and the people living there called for help when they heard his cries. The crew was able to safely rescue the 3-week old kitten, but there was no sign of his mother or any other kittens. The choice was to leave him behind to find his family or bring him back to the station and try to get him some help.
Kitten Associates was called to step in when other rescues couldn't. Although we don't have a huge network of foster homes we decided it was too dangerous to let the kitten go on for countless hours without any nutrition so we jumped into action.
We showed some of the fireman how to feed the kitten and they were really helpful and interested in Wallace's care going forward. We feel like Wallace may have a new fan club rooting for him and we certainly hope that's the case. It was nice to help people who rescue others for a living-a way to give back to our community and to respect our Firefighters for what they do.

On May 13th, Celeste welcomed 5 kittens into the world. We were able to share her big day via our live SqueeTV Ch 2 web cam! After the joy of the births was over, we realized one of the kittens wasn't doing well. He was much smaller than his siblings and although we provided him with 24-hr care, he lost his brave fight after just one day. We named him Fiorello, which means Little Flower. He was a very special little boy who was white with gray polka dots that completely charmed us.
Though we're brokenhearted, we're also glad to report that the remaining kittens, two boys and two girls, are doing very well. Yesterday they turned 2-weeks old and each one is far larger than their "milestone" weight goals for their age. Celeste had us worried for a few days, but after a vet visit and some tests, we just continued to provide her with great food and love and she improved. Celeste is remarkably friendly and a great mother.
Meet Celeste. She was dumped off and left to fend for herself. Whether it was due to her being pregnant or it happened after she was abandoned we will never know. All we know is this poor kitty is very thin, her fur is missing in many places. She's VERY pregnant and due to give birth in about a week.
We can't help cats like Celeste unless we have the funding to provide for her. If you'd like to make a donation in honor of your Mother or in honor of Celeste, please use the DONATE button on the right and leave a message in your donation so we know what it's for.
