A Fiver For Hope.....
Hope and her Babies Three are here and ensconced on the big Scream Porch. If you are just joining the story read HERE first, and then HERE for the Story So Far, about the beautiful Kitty who came to my porch, she'd been dumped in the woods for being in the family way and apparently had the babies in a garage down the street. We think we have a home for her, once the babies are grown enough, and may have homes for the babies too.
Which is good.
Very good, as it appears that Miss Not Into Family Planning may be having some more babies in the not too distant future. I'd asked last night for help with these vet bills and her spaying asking if people coming out here could donate a "Fiver for Hope" and I am beyond grateful for the responses from those of you not coming out but wanting to help. (And those coming!)
I am taking the Fivers in the mail only. I don't want to Paypal, as I don't want any monies going into my account and getting mixed up. All money goes to Hope and her kittens vet bills. Any left over goes in the Fiver for Hope Jar, to be used for the next one.
The address is:
3208 W. Lake St
Minneapolis, MN 55416
I'd wanted to bring her here so that she would not be going out nights partying and having more Babies, but it may be too late, I'll take her to the vet and see what they say. I know they can abort the Babies when they spay, but I don't think I can do that.
(Which should not be taken as my stance on abortion. I believe that is a choice ONLY the women concerned can make for herself, and she is the one who should make it.)
The Babies, as you can see, are beyond cute. Cute overload. They are smaller than I thought, two grey tabbies, and an ORANGE one, who has my heart. More friendly than you would expect, and they have taken to the litter box.
This is a textbook case study of SPAY/NEUTER YOUR PETS. Here is this lovely girl, hardly more than a year old, if that, on her second litter. She had seven babies, sadly, four were found dead, she couldn't take care of them. Now I am taking care of them all.
Anyone wanting to help, and send a Fiver For Hope, it would mean so much to me.
I made a promise. If they crossed my path, I would save them. And I will. I'll see her thru this, and find homes for these babies, and the new babies. And I will not be letting her out. And she will be getting spayed before she goes anywhere.
I know this story is being played out over and over, everywhere. I know most of you have Rescued, and taken on the Pets that nobody wanted. And it means something real. Very real.
It's about making a difference.
Love and Kittens, too many kittens,
