The tiny kitten was fighting for her life and losing. She lay on the cold hard ground in freezing temperatures, critically ill and starving. Her little ears were full of mites, she had an eye infection and an upper respiratory infection that was so bad she could hardly breathe. She was a dirty little ball of fur hovering between life and death.
Alley and five other kittens were rescued one evening by a woman who knew that time was of the essence. She knew the odds were against these babies surviving even one more day, and she was determined to save their lives. You see, someone was poisoning the homeless cats and kittens in the trailer park with anti-freeze.
When our friend arrived on the scene with her cat carrier in hand she was set upon by three other women who were also very determined…. they wanted the kittens dead. Their guardian angel wanted them alive and she was willing to fight for them. And she did. How she managed to scoop up six kittens while fending off blows from three angry women will forever remain a mystery.
Two of the kittens were gravely ill and the vet wasn’t optimistic, but with the tender loving care of their foster mom they were soon on the road to recovery.
Alley’s story is a true rags to riches story. She began her life as a sick and starving homeless kitten living under a trailer house in Missoula Montana. Now she lives in the lap of luxury under the bright lights of Washington DC with her new family who owns three houses and an airplane.
It was touch and go for awhile there, but thanks to the wonderful people like you who support AniMeals, Alley is living happily ever after.
