Kitten season has hit us like a storm. We knew it would be a challenge this summer. We tried to attack it early by reaching out early to one of our target communities of Lake County California. Lake County has been hit by wildfires multiple times in the last few years. Jobs and industry have dried up, as have services. A handfull of citizens have become warriors for the forgotten pets of the area; paying out of pocket to spay and neuter and attempting to rehome.
In early spring we reached out to a few of these good citizens, and went on a good will mission traveling to Lake County and bringing back some souls to help. We came back with sister mamas with week old litters, an adult female and a teenage female, all in need of help and rehoming.
And that was just the tip of the iceberg. Since then we have taken in dozens of cats and kittens from Lake County, including a staggering 19 all from one colony on a property that was being abandoned. Many of the kittens were ill. All needed TLC and good nutircian.
In May we had an extremely successful adoption event. Every kitten available (all 15) was adopted, as well as a mama. Since that time adoptions have been steady and we hope to have every kitten and mama adopted by fall.
In the meantime every kitten and cat will be receiving the best care possible in our foster homes and at our boutique facility. It is because of your support we are able to do what we do. Thank you!
