October 22, 2015 7:52 PM We received a message on our Facebook page from Tiffinaé who lives in Greensboro, NC:
"I was outside when I heard loud meowing coming from a drain so I called the fire department to come rescue the kitten. After an hour, we finally got him out. I'm 98% sure it's a he. I bathed him due to being in a drain, he was so muddy. I just cannot keep him and I want the best possible life for him. People were just walking by and didn't call for any help."
Thankfully, the City of Greensboro Fire Department sent some of their crew out to help rescue this kitty! Sparkle Cat Rescue will be contacting the fire department to thank them for saving this sweet baby! We have named him Stormy.
Stormy appears very healthy and drank some KMR (kitten milk replacer) out of a bottle and is set up in a large carrier with a litter box and cozy bed for the evening. We will set up an appointment at Plaza Vet for him to have an exam including a fecal due to the circumstances he was found.
Without Tiffinaé's help this baby surely would not be alive today. This baby is a miracle and one of the reasons Sparkle Cat Rescue's mission is to help the forgotten felines: abandoned, neglected, homeless.
If you would like to make a donation to help with future vet care (vaccines, combo testing, flea meds, future neuter), please click the link below and your donations will be applied to Stormy's care. Money raised over the amount of his vet expenses will go to the general fund to help all the Sparkle kitties.
