A kind human saved a kitten that was being abused by evil humans. They did not know how it was going to change their life. The pain of chemotherapy was making this human very depressed. But the tiny feline snuggling on their chest, licking away the tears the chemotherapy caused, helped them get through their treatment.
This human had a lot of time to think while recovering. And one of the things they thought about was how to help feral cats. After all, they thought, it is due to humans being irresponsible that we have feral cats. They thought it was their duty to help feral felines.
To do this, they founded the cat rescue group Billy the Kidden Rescue. Soon, they partnered with a pet store, Pups N Stuff. This helped the cat rescue group, because now they had a centralized location. And here, they take donations, prepare kitten kits for fosters, and set up health checks for foster cats. They also complete and store the paperwork for all the felines they help at this location.
Billy the Kidden has helped many felines since opening in 2012. Sometimes, these are scary, like when they saved a feline during flooding from a tropical storm. Others involve crawling through sewers. And they’ve also saved cats from certain death as bait animals.
All of this is very hard work. And the humans behind Billy the Kidden have lots of scars and scratches to show it. But the human behind the cat rescue group accepts these challenges without any complaints.
“We’ve created the often short and brutal life circumstances far too many cats endure,” they said. “Hopefully they can live out their lives in peace versus being persecuted for simply existing.”
