I received a call last night from the mom of DS's friend. She was driving down a lone country road and slammed on the brakes to avoid hitting a tiny black kitten that was in the road. She got out to see if it was OK, then out from the brush came two more little tiger-stripe kittens. Some scumbag had dumped these poor kittens in the middle of nowhere-there were only open fields, no farms, or homes within miles. It's northern Wisconsin and very cold at night, not to mention all the predators, especially coyote packs on the run now. While she was on her cellphone with me, she said the kittens were so happy to be in a warm car, and they were so friendly and were purring and purring. One curled up around her neck as she drove. She called us, because she knows we have taken in wayward animals before, and said she didnt know what to do because she is a renter and couldnt have any more animals. She couldnt leave them, and our animal shelter is full to capacity. (they also euthanize the extras). Well, I called DH and told him-mind you, he is Ok with cats, but doesn't exactly love them.I gave him the line, "just til we can find them homes." (We have 2 already-both rescues-and great!) Well, we readily agreed to help and to our house they came. These kitties are the sweetest, most loving little things! They love people(so obviously HAD a home), and they are siblings-and very close-they all sleep together, play, etc. They surely would have froze to death or been eaten by predators in an open field, or been hit by a car. They wouldnt have had a chance-even if they had been dumped near a farm, they might have a chance. But some idiot dumped them in the middle of nowhere-GRRRRRR-it makes me SOOOOO mad!!! They were hungry and cold, but still purring. Amazing. I will not separate them-they are so obviously siblings and attached to one another. I have two females-the all-black one and a tiger-stripe, and a male tiger-stripe. (I think!) I am in northern Wisconsin. If by some chance there is a member here reasonably close who would like to adopt some truly great kitties, and can provide a good, loving home for them, please contact me. My daughter and I are already getting too attached! Anyways, I just had to vent-people are so cruel and unbelieveable! My e-mail addy is: [email protected] if you would like to contact me directly. Thanks! Tiffany *They all seem to be in really good health!
