These 5 kittens and their momma were trapped in Chelsea at just 4 weeks old. Their little round bodies reminded their foster mom of beans so they are currently going by the names Garbanzo, Lima, Pinto, Cannellini Adzuki, and Momma Chickpea. They will be spay/neutered next week and ready for adoption through Broken Tail Rescue.
What does it mean to be a “Tiny Tiger”. Here are some photos of a group of kittens that came in to Broken Tail Rescue at about 3.5 months of age needing socialization. Some call is deferalizing and I call it “fluff and fold”. You will see that with attentive foster care you can make a difference in the lives of these kittens by teaching them to play, trust and love! The first photo is when they first came in and then the last is before being ready for adoption. You can see the difference. Please consider becoming a foster home today and share this post with your friends.
Please share this great video of Gus who is looking for his forever home! Gus was rescued from Chelsea and after a major dental and some other treatments he is doing well in his foster home. Here is the video link: https://animoto.com/play/M0WStm4kvve0BHmAz0pD6g?autostart=1
Who wants to adopt him???
One of HubCats recently trapped Chelsea cats needed one of her deformed toes amputated. She had an awful ingrown claw. The ingrown toenail was the size and shape of a medium sized button. The Vet told us that she had to be in a lot of pain and should feel much better once the amputation heals. She fortunately was trapped by a volunteer and is now spayed, vaccinated, and should be adopted in the future, since she turned out to be friendly, like many of the stray cats in Chelsea. She also had kittens while living in the streets, but sadly since mom was so malnourished and underweight and the kittens were so riddled with fleas and ear-mites, unfortunately not all of them survived. We were able to trap the two surviving kittens, who are feral, and now being socialized and fostered at another volunteer’s home. She is just one example of the many problems cats can have living on their own in the streets. A lot of the time it is much worse than this case. She is one of the lucky ones to be rescued before it was too late for her and the rest of her kittens.
