We Couldn't Let Them Die

She was dumped at a Kill Shelter with newborn kittens by her side. She was so unhappy she stopped eating. Four days passed. She grew thinner and weaker as her kittens struggled to get the last of her resources.

Though we feared she was very ill, and feared the costs of her Vet care, we decided we couldn't let this sweet Mama and her kittens die in a cage.

Yesterday, she and her family were rescued and vetted. Mama is only 9 months to 1 year old! She has nothing particularly wrong with her, but is very thin at just 5.3 pounds. We brought her into foster care and sure enough, she ate. She ate quite a bit of food.

Though she and her family have a long way to go-and her babies are still very fragile, we hope that we got to them in time and that one day they will all be robust and joyful.

The babies are only a few days old and will need care for a few months before they're old enough to be adopted. We hope you'll consider making a donation towards their care, so we can provide for whatever they need. We also hope you'll stop back and see updates on this very special family.

They were rescued in honor of our own cat, Bob, a big orange fellow, who passed away the same day the kittens were born.

Our Newest Fosters-The Angel Babies

Six little kittens, found in a barn. Their mother was shot by a farmer who thought she was after his ducklings. When one of our volunteers found out about this, she acted quickly. The kittens hadn't had food for two days and were in grave danger.

She got the kittens home and began the difficult task of feeding them every few hours. They were less than a week old.

Yes, that's an inuslated lunch bag full of neonatal kittens!

It was touch and go for awhile, but these little troopers, stayed strong. It's been two weeks since they were rescued and we're glad to report that all six kittens are still with us. They have been named! Please meet: Justin, Shiro, Princess, Screamer, Jazz and Vash.

If you'd like to see a video of them getting fed, you can see it HERE.

Hello Angel Babies!

---------------------------

This family will need vet care and good food, so we're doing a special fundraiser for them. If you can help us, we'd love to raise enough to get them their shots and tests and spayed or neutered when they're old enough.
