Kylie / Millie's Rescuers

A wonderful thing happened today.  I got to meet two of the ladies, Angela and Anne, from Millipore, the company whose building Kylie found.  Employees started feeding a stray cat that wandered to the back of their building.  They started calling her Millie. One couple, Donna and her husband, even came on the weekends so she wouldn't go hungry.  One of our foster mom's brother, Kyle, worked there and called her.  I was contacted and picked her up that afternoon.  Tests and an xray at the vet's on the way home showed she was negative for FIV and feline leukemia and had six babies.  They were born 3 days later.  Not knowing she sort of had a name, I named her Kylie after Kyle.

Angela and Anne came by today to see Millie and her babies and bring presents - like a kitten shower!  They brought her food, towels, blankets, rubber gloves (the gloves aren't really for her, as they're a little too big, but the cleaners at our kennel can sure use them), and a check to Heartland for $185 collected from the employees.  Millipore will match that amount and sent another check.  Thank you to all who donated and organized.  Your generosity is very much appreciated.  Thank you to Donna and her husband for feeding Millie, too.  Donna has her eye on the only little girl, and Angela has staked her claim on the male gray tabby she's holding in the photo.  Kylie/Millie will also be up for adoption in another month when the kittens are older and she has been spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated.

  1. A kitten shower - that's awesome. :-) It is wonderful that Millipore has such great employees who cared so much about a stray cat. The world needs more people like them!
