It’s raining cats at Dog Habitat these days. We had 6 kittens dropped off this weekend. 2 from one litter, 3 from another and one orphan. All need to get examined by a vet and we’re trying to line up an ASPCA van. We’ll probably have an adoption event for these little tykes this weekend or the following. Let me know if you want to come by for a visit.
As you can imagine I was all over this. So yesterday afternoon I swung by Dog Habitat to meet their new boarders!
These trio of siblings do not have names. Therefore, I have taken it upon myself to call them The Spanish Inquisition. Why, you ask? Well, for starters I have recently decided Cardinal Fang is damned good name for a cat. Secondly, nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition (Dog Habitat didn’t in anyway). Lastly, I am guessing this winsome trio have a fondness for soft cushions and comfy chairs. Maybe yours?
From left to right we have Cardinal Fang, a female tortie; Cardinal Ximinez, a male tiger stripe (who, it should be noted, appears to be their leader); and Cardinal Biggles, an orange male tabby.
Biggles, though very friendly, found his supper more compelling than my camera. Here’s Jay telling us their story!
Last— but hardly least— I dare you to resist amazingly cute little fella. He too has no name, so I have taken to calling him Oddball.
Here’s his equally cute but very shy sister! We’ll call her Milk. Just like their neighbors, they too were rescued from Greenpoint. Follows is a little footage of Oddball in action. He’s just as friendly as he is cute. I swear he didn’t stop purring the whole time I was filming!
As Jay indicated, all these kittens will be getting a check up in the very near future. In the meantime anyone who is interested in providing a loving home to any of these lovely (and loving) furkids should contact Dog Habitat via telephone at (347) 601-8678 or via email at: rescue (at) doghabitat (dot) org.
