Hooper Needs Help

This little guy was trapped during a recent trap-neuter-return sortie by the ever-fantastic proprietress of Last Night’s Dinner, Jenblossom. Here’s his story in her words:

This is Hooper, a 3 month old kitten who is one of 9 strays Mike and I trapped from our back yard over the course of the last week. Hooper somehow managed to break both bones in his right front leg, but this tough little guy still climbed fences and played around with his siblings for a couple of weeks until we could catch him and get him help.

That help was provided by some amazing friends: the BARC shelter in Williamsburg donated space in their warehouse to house the cats temporarily; the ASPCA provided us with spay/neuter services at no cost as part of their humane Trap-Neuter-Return program; and the medical professionals at City Critters got Hooper examined, x-rayed and patched up. Hooper is on the mend, with about two weeks of cage rest ahead of him before he can be neutered and returned home to his mom and siblings.

Mike and I plan to make a donation to help defray the costs of the care Hooper has received from these wonderful people. If you’d like to contribute, please feel free to contact me by email, or send funds by Pay Pal to jnblssm at yahoo dot com. You can also make a donation directly to City Critters at www.citycritters.org.

Thank you.

No, thank you Jen for taking the time to care for those furry little ones who cannot defend themselves. Not surprisingly, Hooper has taken a shine to us humans after all the tender loving care he has received. Anyone interested in adopting him can contact Lisacat via Flickr mail.

  4. rowan – That’s so sweet! Hooper’s mama is actually named Funny Face! She’s a beauty and did a wonderful job raising Hooper and his littermates until we could get them all TNR’ed and treated for their various colds and such. If the kittens are anything like their mom (and their three older siblings also TNR’ed), they’ll make awesome companions for some lucky people.

    Miss Heather, thank you so much for posting this, and Mike and I send our condolences to you and Mr. Heather on the loss of your Tortilla. You’re an amazing advocate for animals in need of loving homes here in Brooklyn, and we truly appreciate it.

    We’ve raised $300 and counting toward Hooper’s vet bills, and we’d love nothing more than to help him and his brother and two sisters find loving homes.

  6. Jen, if you’ll send me some pix of Hooper and his siblings I’ll be more than happy to post them. Let me know. If you need my email address just ask and I’ll bump it to you.

Tell me what you're thinking...
