Mickey – Gotcha Day


One year ago he was living in a wooded area along a busy road with his Mother and siblings. Volunteers set traps to rescue the family, spay or neuter them, and get them to safety. Fortunately the stinky sardines in the trap proved irresistible to this little kitten.

There was no room for him at the shelter, so we agreed to foster him in our home. Mickey was 11 weeks old and only 2.2 pounds, small and badly undernourished.

My husband and I couldn’t part with him when it was time to bring him to the shelter (although our cat Gracie would have been OK with it). We adopted Mickey Mouser and now, one year later, we are a happy three cat household.
