Six kittens finding shelter in drain pipes and heating vents at the retirement home were trapped and rescued.
The original call Erica from PAWS Chicago received about this colony was asking for help with a mama cat and four kittens. We are calling this the Pallet Colony now, and so far we’ve trapped 16 cats and kittens. ALL of the kittens we know about are now off the street.
Last week Joann trapped four kittens, about 10 weeks old, and all are now admitted into PAWS’ no-kill shelter.
They developed some URI issues, and were placed into foster homes. PAWS posted the cutest photos of them in their iso cages, and with their new names, Hunky Dory, Stardust, and Kaira. Thank you, PAWS and Erica!
Fitzgerald was the fourth kitten trapped. Joann was able to socialize him fairly fast at her home first, within a week, because of his age and his love for wet food. He was just admitted into PAWS and renamed Bowie.
We trapped two other older kittens, about six months old, Pinky and The Brain. Pinky was the one that kept popping her head out of the drain pipes to check out the traps.
They are currently too shy to be admitted into PAWS, but they are enjoying their indoor life. They are crated together and are pretty bonded. They are now in a foster home with Robin, who is making sure they are being socialized properly. Thank you, Robin! Robin did a fantastic job fostering the KFC Colony kittens for us a few months ago.
Please let me know if you are interested in meeting these girls to adopt or to foster. Thanks!
