Cat rescue group Little Wanderers NYC responded to a call about a litter of six kittens and their mother living in an impounded car in an East Harlem sanitation lot. A sanitation employee discovered the feline family and reported his finding to the rescue, talking the NYC Marshal into waiting before towing the car.
Fortunately for the mother cat and her beautiful, squirmy progeny, rescue volunteers work tirelessly around the clock to save lives just like theirs. A virtual army of foster care volunteers help ensure that the most vulnerable of the feline population receive the chances – and the care – that they need.
One such volunteer, Ann Furey, drove a significant distance in the early morning hours to retrieve the feline family. Following a trip for a veterinary examination, in which the cat and her babies were determined to be healthy, Ann dropped them at their new foster home, where Staci, their next rescue volunteer, was ready for them.
Staci had prepared their nursery suite prior to their arrival. It was a serene and cozy room, perfect for the mama cat to lovingly attend to the needs of her kittens without any worries. Staci provides shelter for the feline family, but more than that, she provides a safe place for them to prepare for their new indoor lives, giving them a taste of family life. Fosters are the life-blood of rescue organizations. Animal rescuers are unsung heroes who save lives every day.
