We thought we'd use this year's newsletter to answer one of the most frequently asked questions we get:
"Where do your cats come from?"
But first, a brief message from our treasurer:
Homeless cats are in endless supply.
Money to care for them isn't.
Please donate.
City Critters thanks you for your support in 2018!
Now, to the cats!
Minou and her kittens -- along with another mom and litter, for a total of 11 -- were abandoned in carriers outside our Petco adoption center. three of them developed panleukopenia, but amazingly, two survived the frequently fatal disease.
When we accepted Chi from the ACC, she had an agonizing condition that the vets worked tirelessly to diagnose. It turned out to be bone degeneration caused by malnutrition. She's still not 100 percent, but she's getting there.
We took in Button when her person moved into assisted living; we subsequently discovered she has a heart condition requiring medication and routine echocardiograms.
Somehow, they find us. Oscar walked into a local police precinct in the Bronx and politely demanded help. Help not only meant rehoming, but extensive dental work and diagnostics for a possible heart condition as well.
We work with a lot of local rescuers; Bianca comes from one of the busier ones in the Bronx.
After living outdoors in Brooklyn for years, one bitterly cold night one of our fosters heard her screaming in a backyard. Fria leaped into her arms. She had an old back injury and arthritis.
Our volunteers bring us requests for help as well. That's how we got Brooklynite Aslan!
Lena came to us from a prolific rescuer and trap-neuter-return person in Brooklyn.
City Critters wishes you a happy holiday season and a great New Year!
