Meet Vanilla! Vanilla was one of 8 kittens who came into a local, rural shelter with no mom. He needed nursing, and fast. A mom cat just happened to be nursing a single kitten that was brought into the shelter a day earlier. (Mama Spice) and she quickly accepted Vanilla as one of her own. Vanilla was lucky, but when we came into the shelter to pull some senior dogs on death row, we saw how ill the kittens were so we pulled them, too. (the poor kittens and mom didn't even have so much as a towel or blanket to lay on, and the windows were open in the cold shelter and it was mid November!) They were all shivering and some were sleeping in their litter box to escape the cold metal floor of the crate. We took them all that night, and sadly, lost some kittens due to an upper respiratory infection despite vet interventions and antibiotics. Vanilla was one of the lucky ones. He struggled and made it, and look at how beautiful he is!! He was adopted to the most loving home ever with two other kitty siblings, and their favorite thing to do together is to look out the window and bird watch. It's a match made in heaven and we can't thank Roberta enough for saving him and adopting him from our rescue. Thanks Roberta, and give Vanilla lots of chin scratches for us!!
