cat rescue on the humber river
three weeks ago, a litter of 6 little kittens were discovered by some hikers on a trail across the humber river just outside of corner brook. they managed to rescue the kittens but the mother took off into the woods. keith's buddy, pete, spends alot of time on the river and a few days ago, while sitting in the woods, the little mumma cat made an appearance. very shy. but also hungry. so every day pete would return with food and little by little she grew to trust him.
yesterday keith and pete went across on a sea-doo (this spot isn't accessible by road). she appeared almost immediately. and in a little while she ended up on keith's lap, eventually falling asleep.
they had no trouble getting her into the cat carrier.
and she wasn't even too upset going back across the river. kim at scaredy cat rescue had arranged a foster home for her. so last night "hope" (as she's been called by the foster mum) spent a safe, warm and dry night. she'll now be spayed and put up for adoption. if you are interested in adopting this little sweetheart, call the western newfoundland spca at 783-2747 or kim at scaredycat rescue 640-9541.
