6 Plus 1

New Beginnings Cat Rescue receives emails daily from the local animal shelters notifying us about specific cats whose time is running out. They must be tagged by a rescue organization or, sad to say, they will be put down.

In one particular rescue this spring, there were 2 kittens with their mother, as well as 3 orphaned kittens, whose time had run out. The 6 cats were tagged by NBCR and, with foster families ready, a volunteer heads over to the shelter to rescue the momma cat and all 5 kittens. 

The challenging part of any rescue is balancing the number of cats rescued with the number of foster families or available space in our adoption center.  So it was, when the volunteer started gathering up the cats, she noticed there was 1 little kitten, all alone and not tagged by any rescue.  His owner surrendered him to the shelter that same day. He was in the isolation area, in a cage, all by himself, trembling in the corner, very scared. The volunteer put him in the carrier with the other 3 kittens. There wasn't a hiss or a growl. I guess they knew he was in the same boat. 

When asked if she got all the cats that were tagged, her answer was “all 6 plus 1”.  

Thank you for donating to New Beginnings Cat Rescue.  With your financial help, there just has to be room to rescue 1 more homeless kitten.
