I am sure you have heard the story of the bonded pairs of kittens at the San Diego Humane Society. Mouse and WiFi found their way into a box that was shipped to a warehouse for a cable company. They were lucky that they were not crushed, and lucky that they came to a place with a kitten nursery.
These two tiny felines — they came with their umbilical cords still attached — were rushed to the kitten nursery, where they received the bottle feeding and care they needed. And now they are doing much better. The dedicated humans in the kitten nursery say these two are “little piglets” because they consume so many noms! They are off the bottle and eating solid noms, which is good progress.
They have reached eight weeks, which is the normal age for felines to be spayed or neutered. This is something even well meaning humans do not know, because the human thought I needed to be a year old before I was fixed! That meant I was old enough to know what was done to me and old enough to realize that the human was responsible for it. I was also old enough to know be angry at the human and to plot my revenge. That night, when he was sleeping, I jumped right where the things he had taken away were located on him.
Because Mouse and WiFi are still small for their age, they will need to put on weight before they have that procedure done. Fortunately for them, they will be young enough to not miss what is taken away from them.
After they recover from the procedure, they will be sent to a foster home, where the next step of the cat rescue will begin.
I am sure this happy cat rescue story will conclude with these two adorable felines finding a furever home. Think about how amazing this cat rescue is. First, they had to survive the trip — not just the physical danger of being crushed by equipment or humans who did not know they were in the box — but also the risk of not having noms for a long time. Then they had to come to a place with a kitten nursery. Mouse and WiFi also had to recover from the stress.
It is truly a very happy cat rescue story. And I will share another with you tomorrow!
