Marianne says: Zoey is one of 16 kittens that were rescued from a high-kill county shelter. A Helen Sanders CatPAWS volunteer was at the shelter helping another rescue transport some moms and babies to a safe place when the word came in that 16 two-week-old kittens had been rounded up by Animal Control and had just arrived. The CatPAWS volunteer found out that they would all be euthanized by noon of that day, just two hours of life left to live. Helen Sanders CatPAWS did not have any foster moms available to take these kittens in if we were to rescue them but we figured we’d worry about that later… somebody had to have an available bathtub to hold kittens until we could figure what we were going to do with them. The important thing was to get them out of there and into safe hands, OUR hands.

We got them all and, yes, someone did have an available bathtub and, no, we had no idea where they would go or who would take them for us to foster because we literally did not have one single foster home to put them in. Thank goodness for the internet and networking because we put the word out about these babies and our need for fosters and within three days all babies were in their new foster homes, on their way to getting bigger and healthier and eventually ready for their new homes!

We have no idea where these kittens came from and we have no idea if any of them are even siblings. They were all picked up from different locations and rounded up. These kittens had been born to die, and they escaped that death sentence. Their journey with Helen Sanders CatPAWS has just begun, and we will do all that we can to make sure that they get the best homes and the most loving families because they deserve nothing less. Zoey is now five weeks old. Just look at that face. What a heartbreaker.

I love all kittens and cats but Torties are not my favorite. Zoey is so unique I never forgot her. I am glad she was saved. Bless all of you for taking in all these kittens when you had no room for them!

I wish we had more shelters and organizations like yours. Kitties do deserve better, and every little life is precious!
