Furry Pal in Peril!
It is with great sadness that we report, despite our best fund raising efforts and the last-minute kindness of two generous donors for medical expenses, Chopped Ear Mom did not receive the care she so desperately needed in time and passed away on May 1st, 2005. But her strong spirit and legacy lives on. Donations made in her memory are greatly appreciated and will help other cats in similar situations. Please help them get the treatments they need. The smallest donation can make a big difference!
THIS IS A BITTERSWEET STORY ABOUT A LOVELY 3 YEAR OLD FEMALE FELINE THAT WAS RESCUED FROM THE MANHATTAN CACC, ALONG WITH HER ONE REMAINING 3 WEEK OLD KITTEN, BY NEW YORK CITY RESCUED KITTIES.
THIS BRAVE AND LOVING CREATURE THEN PROCEEDED TO NURSE 7 THREE-DAY-OLD ORPHANED KITTENS TO HEALTH. HER NAME IS "CHOPPED EAR MOM" BECAUSE SOME CRUEL HUMAN ALONG THE WAY HAD DECIDED TO CHOP OFF HER EARS AND HER TAIL. BUT, AS YOU CAN SEE, SHE IS STILL A BEAUTY--RATHER RESEMBLING A SCOTTISH FOLD.
UNFORTUNATELY, "CHOPPED EAR MOM" IS NOT HAVING A VERY HAPPY ENDING. AFTER ALL OF HER UPS & DOWNS AND UNSELFISH CAREGIVING TO OTHERS IN HER SHORT LIFE SHE IS NOW IN DESPERATE NEED OF FUNDS FOR MEDICAL CARE DUE TO A CHRONIC HEART AND KIDNEY CONDITION. WITH THE PROPER TREATMENT SHE WILL HAVE THE CHANCE TO LIVE A RELATIVELY LONG, FULL, AND HAPPY LIFE.
