Sprinkles and Leprechaun At Home

Cat Rescue of Sprinkles and Leprechaun

I am sure you all remember the very happy cat rescue of Sprinkles and Leprechaun. Poor Sprinkles was rescued by the very kind humans at the San Diego Humane Society. Sadly, this little girl had gotten her umbilical cord wrapped around her leg, and it was feared that she was going to lose that leg.

She was not a happy cat, but then, another single kitten, Leprechaun, joined her. Having another feline to bond with made all the difference. The humans caring for Sprinkles saw her outlook improve significantly. Sprinkles also did not need to have her leg amputated.

When they got old enough, Sprinkles and Leprechaun were neutered, and then they were ready to be adopted out. Many humans wanted to adopt these wonderful felines. And one very fortunate human got the chance to bring these two home.

This human was a combat veteran, and served bravely in Iraq. Sadly, she was injured there, but that did not stop her from continuing to do good. As an injured veteran who could understand what others facing these challenges were going through, she volunteers to help veterans with PTSD.

It is only fitting that Sprinkles and Leprechaun, in the final chapter of their cat rescue story, went to a human who could understand what Sprinkles went through.

Their cat rescue ends with them living in a very happy home and them being part of the Million Meow Mission. These two have been renamed Sophia and Leonidas, but you can see they are very happy cats.

I like to say that when there is a cat rescue, we know that the feline is rescued. But as Sophia and Leonidas show, sometimes, the human rescuing the cat is helped as well.

Mouse and WiFi Headed Home!

Special Needs Kittens Mouse and WiFi at Two Weeks

I’m sure all of my fans remember the story of Mouse and WiFi. These two kittens were packed in a box that was shipped from Los Angeles to a Cox Communications warehouse near me. They still had their umbilical cords attached!

I share a bond with these tiny felines because as a diabetic cat, I am a special needs cat. So are felines who are so young. They must be bottle fed and need round the clock attention. Fortunately, they were shipped to the right place, as the San Diego Humane Society is one of the few animal rescue organizations that has a kitten nursery.

They have come a long way and overcome many obstacles, my furiends. Because they were separated from their mother as such an early age, these two special needs cats faced difficult challenges. But thanks to the dedicated care of the volunteers at the kitten nursery, these two boys have recovered from their initial ordeal and now are about to go to their furever home.

Special Needs Cats Mouse and WiFI Ready for Adoption

Last week, the humans in white coats at the San Diego Humane Society decided that these former special needs cats were ready to go to a furever home. They allowed humans to apply to adopt Mouse and WiFi by applying in person at their central San Diego location.

Because of the special bond between these two brofurs, they are going to be adopted as a pair. And even though they look very similar, they have different purrsonalities. Mouse likes to climb and WiFi is a sprinter. And they both love humans, probably because they have spent almost their entire life around you two legged creatures.

One lucky human will get to take this pair home and that lucky person will get the news today. The humans who applied to take them home but who are not selected will be sad, of course. But I hope they adopt one of the many other felines who would love a furever home!

Two Bonded Kittens Have Home

Sprinkles and Leprechaun

Right now is a time of year where many cat rescue organizations get very busy.  It is the time of year where many kittens come into rescue.  I told you the story of two adorable kittens named Mouse and WiFi and how lucky they were.

Today I want to share the story of another happy cat rescue from the San Diego Humane Society.  Like Mouse and WiFi, this story involves two orphaned kittens.  They were not from the same litter, but now they may as well be.

Sprinkles and Leprechaun

Sprinkles was one of the very first kittens to make it to the San Diego Humane Society’s kitten nursery this kitten season.  She was in bad shape.  Her umbilical cord had wrapped around her leg, and it cut off the circulation.  And she hadn’t eaten in a while, so she was in a very vulnerable state.

Even though Sprinkles was getting very good care from humans in white coats and volunteers, she still was a sad cat.  That’s when she was introduced to another orphan kitten, named Leprechaun.

These two bonded almost immediately, and they became very good furiends.  Having Leprechaun by her side made Sprinkles much happier, and her recovery progressed.  She made so much progress that she was recently spayed and this once sad kitten became available for adoption.  Of course, she had to go with her furiend, Leprechaun.

Many humans heard about this happy cat rescue and wanted to complete the story.  Well, one lucky human was selected as the one who would give Sprinkles and Leprechaun a home.

This human is a very brave one, having served in combat and being injured during her service.  Because of this, she knew that Sprinkles and her would share a special bond.  And she is a very caring human, who volunteers to help her fellow veterans who are suffering from PTSD.

A Happy Cat Rescue for Sprinkles and Leprechaun

Sprinkles and Leprechaun have settled into their new home, complete with a king size bed to romp in and their own room!  As you can see from the pictures, they are very happy to have found a furever home.  And I am very happy to share this cat rescue story with you.

I have shared these two happy cat rescue stories with you for another reason.  Some of you may know that the human is opening The Cat Cafe.  He will be working with the organization that made these rescues possible to save more cats.  Please help him by becoming a contributor to the crowd funding campaign.  If you have already given, please consider giving again.  And if you haven’t and think your contribution is too small, it is not.
