Mommacat Thanks You and So Do I!

UPDATE to STORY BELOW

As of earlier today Aveta and her babies were out of the kill pound and on their way to Winging Cat Rescue! They are safe.*

*Punapipurri, you have set your profile on private and I couldn't answer you back about the kitty. I hope you will see it here.

Avena's Story (w/happy ending!)

I don't normally put up chipins for donations on my blog. I do Tweet em...in fact, I pimp those that touch my heart pretty hard.
This was one of those and it spilled over into my blog.

Imagine being a heavily pregnant cat on death row at a high kill gassing pound with very little chance if any. (I won't go into the deatils of how gassing is done or the cruelty it entails.)

Winging Cat Rescue, one of the absolutely last chances to pull kitties of death row sends an urgent plea and a chipin is set up with a goal to pull and vet this unfortunate cat named Aveta. Just look at her picture...her eyes are terrified.

Shortly after she is taken into death row, the kitty goes into labor and gives birth to 7 kittens in her cage. Born in prison. I can only imagine her pain and fear in a crowded unknown place, trying to nurse her babies that will die with her. Even worse, how she will try to protect them and fight for them as the family is being gassed...

It broke my heart! I hit Twitter like a maniac and pimped this fund and didn't go to sleep until after 2am. I'm poor, I won't lie (see previous posts mol) but I scraped up $10 because every $ counts.
Twitter pals and Blogger pals and Catster pals passed the word and today we have SUCCESS!
I was just a small part of this, a drop of water in an ocean, but it all came together because of YOU and WINGING CAT.

Since babies were born after the intial chipin was set up, generous people have donated at this time, an extra $25! Fund goal has been met 116% as I write!
Any extra for the new babies is genuinely appreciated!
