    First kitten rescue :)

    Ok, I just helped my mom make a rescue. I have never done it before and neither has she. She called me 2 days ago and told me about a kitten that is from the same mamma cat as my Vixen is from. Apparently the woman who has this cat and kitten has no intention of getting mamma spayed. The 8 week old kitten was living in a filthy basement that was just disgustingly dirty and cold and damp. Baby was only getting feed maybe every 2 days and mamma wasn't feeding her anymore as the woman had tossed momma back outside. So, I told my mom we have to get that kitten out of there. She said she could probably convince the woman to let her have the kitten but my mom couldn't keep her as she is severely allergic. I contacted the rescue where I got my Lilith and convinced them even though they are full to take this baby on. They are going to take her and place her in foster care. They are no kill. So my mom is going tomorrow to get the kitten the woman said she could take her. Yeaaaa, I am very excited that this little one will get a chance at a good life.

    Now we just have to get momma. We are going to get her I think it may take a little time though as my mom has to make momma go "poof". Poor momma has had 4 litters of kitten in the last 18 months and she is only 3 years old now. Keep fingers and paws crossed we can catch her and get her into the rescue.

    Bless you and your mother for helping this widdle kitty and I pray that you are able to get the mama taken care of so she doesn't have to be a baby making machine for the rest of her life.

    Congratulations Michelle on your first rescue.
    Doesn't it feel good.

    Having made a cat go "poof" myself, it is a fantastic feeling. For me it was just a matter of getting him to trust me. He loved the attention he was suddenly getting from me and my hubby. So when I picked him up one day and walked into the house with him, he just went with the flow! Plus he was soooo happy to be warm and out of the nasty PA weather.....

    Hmmm...have we added a new verb to the dictionary? Poofing?

    What a wonderful job you and your mother have done! I wish you all the luck in capturing mom and getting her fixed, or placed in a "good" home! Please keep us updated.

    Thanks guys. I don't have any pics yet. I haven't even seen the munchkin. But I will be sure to get my mother to take a pic or two. And once she gets put up for adoption I will post the link to the page. It is a great feeling to know we are getting out of that nasty place where she isn't being looked after. And poor Mittens(momma). She must be sooo tired. Let's keep those fingers and paws crossed for her. I NEED to get her and get that poor angel spayed.
