June Director’s Note

June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month and as the proud mom to several former rescue cats, I say yeah for cats!  I know there are dog people reading this thinking no way – cats are too independent, cats are too fickle, cats are too this or that.  But, cats are also loving, intelligent companions that are just right for people who can’t or don’t want to have a dog in their life.

In honor of Adopt a Shelter Cat Month, I’d like to share a few images of my favorite kitties:

Ace and her CKP toys

Ace, who was surrendered to a rescue at 8 weeks along with her brother, ended up with us after undergoing surgery to remove a cancerous growth from her head.  Here she is enjoying our new Kitty Pot Munchie toys.

Molly in Xmas Box (1)

Molly was found in a field frequented by foxes.  She was hiding in a bush, but meowing for her mom who was nowhere to be found.  This poor little girl was only 5 weeks old, but adjusted to life indoors very quickly.

Nutmeg in Pumpkin (1)

Nutmeg’s mother gave birth to her and her two siblings in a fallen tree.  A Good Samaritan saw the mom cat go off, but not return.  She found the kittens and took them to a veterinary clinic that after having no luck finding a cat rescue with an opening, contacted HHF.  Mom did return the next day and was reunited with her kittens.  Three adoption applications on Nutmeg fell through, so we decided she was meant to stay with us.  She and Molly and now best friends.

If you have room in your home and your heart, consider adopting a shelter or rescue cat or foster so one more life may be saved.
