Huron Street Kittens Update: Jerzy!

A number of people have asked me about the kittens that were found dumped next to a bunch of garbage cans last month by a very good Samaritan named Sarita. There were initially four, two being one week old and the other two being approximately four weeks old. The two younger ones regrettably— but not surprisingly— died. This left a brother and sister which we named Anna and Jerzy. In regards to them I have some good news and some bad news: Anna has died. Lisa has no idea what happened. She simply woke up one morning and Anna was gone. If there is any consolation about this sad passing of events it is:
- At least Anna spent what little time she had being loved and cared for as instead simply dying on the street like so many stray/abandoned kittens do.
- Her brother Jerzy is happy and healthy. He has tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV!
Here’s Jerzy the day he was found: April 13, 2010.
And here he is after a very exhausting “play session” at Muddy Paws yesterday!

But don’t take her word for it. Here is Jerzy having a grand old time!
In closing I would like to thank everyone once again for their generous donations towards Jerzy’s medical care. It took several weeks of antibiotics and TLC but as you can see it was money well spent. I agree with Lisa: he is going to be a very remarkable guy!
