Look who showed up

New Kitty #1
Somebody dumped this little girl at my mom's house last week. She was skinny and filthy and famished. She's a little shy, but hopefully she'll come around. She came to the right house. Two days later, her brother appeared.
New Kitty #2
This is the SWEETEST little boy. He purrs constantly. He showed up skin and bones and filthy dirty, and so small you had to pet him with your index finger. Now he's growing like a weed,and has a big round tummy. I plan to make him my own inside kitty (yeah, three cats...like I'll ever find an apartment).

I had to rescue a one-week old kitty last week. Somebody had left her out to die in the tropical sun. Her eyes were glued shut and she had cat flu. She's thriving at my vet's, being nursed back to health right now.

I think people who throw animals away like so much trash should be shot.

I'm pretty sure there's a special level of hell just for those types of people. Some friends got their pair of kitties in almost the exact same way...so glad you and your mom were there.

Such cute fuzzy little faces ! It never ceases to amaze me how cruel people can be to animals. I don't know how people who abuse an animal can look at themselves in a mirror. I'm glad these two little fuzzies found you !

I'm so glad the kitties found you and your mom. And I'm sure they are, too.

My husband had a little ferile calico appear on his doorstep in a snow storm and she turned out to be the best buddy a guy could hope for. Who says guys can't love cats?

I look forward to seeing lots more pictures of these guys as they grow up.

I echo Marita's comment about shooting people that abandon animals. I have been a member of the RSPCA in Australia for about 30 years and I still shed tears over their quarterly newsletter when they write up articles about cruelty to animals. Barb these two dear little furbabies are just adorable - who needs an apartment when you can have lots of kitties instead??!!

KITTEHS!!!

It fills me with fear when I realize how much animals are at the mercy of our good behavior. They have no choice, and to me it's terrifying. There are good people, like those assembled here, but there are also those who see animals as objects: if they're ignored nothing will happen to them or better yet, they'll just disappear.

Animal cruelty laws just don't go far enough!
