An Update On The Huron Street Kittens & A Contest

Although I have amended my earlier post regarding the four kittens that were found dumped like so much trash in front of a parking lot on Huron Street this morning I am going to write this follow-up post— and ask for your help.

First off, here’s a general run-down of what happened:

  1. I am emailed by a reader that four kittens were abandoned at Huron Street.
  2. I called PJ of Empty Cages Collective to give him a heads-up and head over to the scene.
  3. Upon finding no kittens I swung by Dog Habitat and told Jay what’s up. He told me he had received a call from someone who had found and taken home kittens from Huron Street. He referred her to Empty Cages Collective.
  4. I call PJ back and, lo, this woman had in fact contacted him. He followed up.
  5. A good friend of mine, Lisa, has taken these kittens under her care. Alas, one of them did not make it but the other three are doing alright (all things considered).
  6. A particularly disturbing thing she told me is these kittens were not from the same litter: two were one week old, two were four weeks old. This begs the question as to what happened to their litter mates. I imagine they were not so “lucky”.

In other words I had very little to do with these kittens being rescued— but I want to help them and I imagine a number of you do too. Here’s how:

  1. Lisa has made me aware that she is in need of a number of items on her Amazon Wish List. Foremost among them KMR (kitty formula). You can view and make donations to her wish list by clicking here.
  2. Secondly, those of you who prefer to make monetary donations (for veterinarian care, etc.) can do so via PayPal at: lisavallez (at) gmail (dot) com

Lastly I have spoken to Lisa and we agreed to let my readers (YOU) name these cuties. Without further ado here they are (again):

A one week old tiger boy.

A four week old tortie tigress.

And her four week old cream-colored brother.

You can tender your submissions via comments or email at: missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. I’ll set the deadline at midnight Monday, April 19, 2010. Judges and prizes have yet to be determined. Good luck and I look forward to your submissions!

  2. Gilligan, Skipper and Marianne (or Ginger)! They were rescued in the truest sense of the word. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I hope it’s not morbid, and it may even be appropriate given their GP roots, to give at least one the name of a victim of the Polish Air Force crash. Agnieszka Pogrรณdka-W?c?awek (maybe Agnes for short) was a member of the Polish Secret Service, which is kind of neat, and Anna Walentynowicz (you could even call her Valentina, given the pronunciation) was the mother of the Polish Solidarity movement, and the organizer of the largest strike in history.

    We will definitely help Lisa with her Wish list items. Thanks for posting this follow-up!

  6. I don’t think this is morbid at all. I have reached the woman who rescued these little ones. We’re going to talk in the next day or so!

Tell me what you're thinking...
