This past summer, Spay and Stay received a called from a resident of Beach Mobile Trailer Park about a recently discovered new momma cat and her two newborn kittens. Spay and Stay’s multi-tasking Trapper, Foster, Volunteer and Board member, Janet, headed out to the Trailer Park to locate the animals to see how she could help. It took some work to remove the dead leaves and twigs that concealed their location, but Janet found two day old kittens in a discarded Ace Hardware lawn bag next to a trailer. Inside the bag was one beautiful all white kitten and its all black sibling, which were quickly named Ace and Twigs.

While Janet was discovering the kittens, the mother cat could be seen across the street nervously watching Janet discover her new babies. With luck on her side, she was able to coax the momma cat into a playpen with some much needed food. Our wonderful Volunteer was able to bring this tiny, precious family to her home safely. Janet reported that momma cat, who is now affectionately known as Harper, turned out to be the most attentive mom that Janet has ever encountered. This loving cat even cared and nursed another motherless kitten that Janet had also recently rescued. Harper spent her time caring for her babies, safe and secure until all were able to be spayed/neutered and finally adopted.

With funding and donations from our generous supporters and grantors, Spay and Stay continues the good work of locating cats in need in our community, and when possible, finding forever homes for these magnificent creatures. Please consider making a donation so that we can continue making happy endings for our feline friends.
