Blu and Braveheart need a home
The woman didn't even call to cancel. She just never showed.
"Unfortunately when you are in the rescue business, you sometimes run into rude and inconsiderate people," Dolores wrote in an e-mail to her friends, including News-Herald reporter David Glasier, last week. David called "Dolly" a long-time family friend who does great work on dog and cat rescue and fostering through the Gates Mills Animal Welfare and Euclid Beach Cat committees.
In a renewed effort to find the two kittens a home, Dolores asked her friends to help spread the the word by sharing their profiles:
• Braveheart, 8-9 weeks oldBoth cats have had their first shots, been neutered and tested negative for feline leukemia. They have shared their lives for weeks, so Dolores hopes to keep them together.
Defining characteristic: Perfect "M" on his forehead
Story: Found in an abandoned groundhog hole at about 4 weeks. Fostered with older kittens who really wouldn't pay much attention to him, "but he pestered and pestered until they all gave in and played and cuddled with him, even a 2-year-old cat."
Personality: The first in his foster group to learn to do everything, despite his young age. "A great little tiger kitten with a heart full of love for everyone, a curiosity unrivaled and a spirit not to be denied."
• Blu, 9-10 weeks old
Defining characteristic: Beautiful coloring of a purebred Russian Blue
Story: Found foraging for food all alone. "At first he was food-aggressive with other kittens and frightened by everything and everyone."
Personality: With the help of Dolores' 2-year-old cat and some tender loving care, he now cuddles and is learning to purr all entwined in an arm or lap.
To help give them a great indoor home, contact Dolores as soon as possible at 440-646-0600 or Husky1554@roadrunner.com.
