An Update On "Twinkle"

If you haven't read about Twinkle, please read here. All I can say is, "I'm glad I'm not fostering her." She'd become a Turner the minute she came into the house! 

Twinkle is doing well despite her disability.  The vet has put her leg into a cast with hope to stretch the deformed tendon so an amputation isn't necessary.  She isn't out of the woods yet:

That last picture cracks me up.  Look at the ATTITUDE on that kitten's face!  I saw her at the vet today and she was sporting a beautiful new yellow cast!  The foster Mom has to bring her in weekly to have the cast changed.  Certainly a pain in the neck for anybody who has a life outside of cat rescue!  Ahhh...the devotion these foster parents give their charges.

I was saddened to find out the shelter killed two kittens yesterday that I was going to rescue today.  I'm not sure what they're thinking by killing kittens in DECEMBER.  I have foster homes begging for kittens right now.  I'm really too angry to say anything more.  I was really upset yesterday over it and felt very responsible for not taking them Monday.

I guess they all can't be as fortunate as Twinkle.

So glad to hear about Twinkle. It really is too bad about the other kittens. Does the shelter itself use surrounding pet stores to help advertise? Only because I now work at my local petstore which hosts the humane society cats, that they have horrible hours too for adopters.

Well... maybe it will lighten your day just a hair to know that Sherman is featured on the Huffington Post via the Shit My Pets Ruined site: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/07/7-sites-you-should-be-was_n_1133959.html#s526006&title=Shit_My_Pets

I'm so glad to see that Twinkle is doing well! She looks so much more lively, and the attitude in those eyes speaks volumes. she's a fighter :)

It's unfortunate about the kittens, are there others you could rescue instead?

Twinkle in the first photo looks quite happy to have his picture taken to show all the readers how he's making out but rather annoyed with the second request.

I think you should suggest that the Huffington Post do a write up or make a donation to your rescue?
