When Pasado’s Safe Haven, a non-profit animal sanctuary near Monroe, received a call at the end of October about a momma cat that had been hit by a car and killed in Gold Bar, leaving six three day old kittens behind, they immediately set to work to find suitable foster care.
This job was not for the faint of heart as the kittens needed to be bottle fed every two or three hours ‘round the clock until they were five weeks old and able to eat wet food. After a few phone calls a local volunteer, Jana Hayes, agreed to take them.
Although the mortality rate is high, Hayes, her husband and two teenage daughters were able to save all six of the kittens.
Pasado’s collaborated with the Community Cat Coalition to get the kittens vaccinated and de-wormed and used donated funding to get them neutered.
As a result of the recent “Home for the Holidays” event in Mukilteo sponsored by the Community Cat Coalition, all six kittens have adoption applications pending in wonderful homes.
The “Home for the Holidays” cat and dog adoption event continues this weekend at:
