This time of year, it's especially difficult to know there are hundreds of thousands of animals, waiting in kill shelters, hoping to find a forever home or for a rescue group to come along and save them from being euthanized.
A 5 month old kitten, sat alone in a litter pan in a stainless steel cage. His cage is small and one of so many, each containing one or more cats, just like him, hoping to get out.
He sat there for nine days. Each day was one less day he had to live. Each day the odds were going up that he would be euthanized simply because more cats were entering the shelter and they were running out of space.
These are the cats we want to rescue. The ones who can still love humans, even after being treated so poorly by them. We will make a difference in their life-for the better.
This morning, this little cat no longer has a shelter ID number, he has a name and he has a place to call home until he finds that forever home he so dearly deserves.
Please welcome our latest foster cat, MacGruber into the Kitten Associates family! MacGruber will be available for adoption AFTER December 19, 2010.
