The Logan Airport Cats Rescue Project
would like to share with you a particularly special rescue story to
emphasize the importance of shared responsibility when it comes to the
rescue and care of abandoned animals.
over a year ago, I met a concerned animal lover (Carol) who showed me a
Unfortunately our shelter was full at the time and we could not take any of the cats in. Late last fall, we received a call from another very caring animal lover and her friend (Cathy and Dave) who had been taking turns with Carol to feed the cats. Cathy was concerned about the cats well-being because of the dreadful cold and the ever-present danger of cats slipping into the ocean.
This time, we decided to take the cats as we thought they had endured sufficient hardships by living in such a hostile environment.
several weeks, Cathy and Dave started trapping cats and bringing them to
our shelter. What is
remarkable is that they did this enduring the terrible cold themselves
(they would not leave the traps unattended with the fear the cats could
fall into the ocean) and they managed to do this despite their work
schedules which often took them out of state for several days at the
late January, Cathy and Dave had brought to our shelter a total of 8
adults and 6 kittens. They
rescued a few other cats, which they decided to foster not to overcrowd
us any further.
of this writing, two of the 6 kittens have been adopted by an animal
lover who was fostering them for us.
The remaining 4 kittens have almost been socialized and will be
soon available for adoption. The
other 8 adult cats also still at the shelter are in various stages of
domestication and because they were exposed so much to humans, we think
that in a few months they will be available for adoption as well.
hope that there are no more cats left in that dreadful place at the
airport and we highly praise Carol, Cathy and Dave for their tenacious
and incredible efforts to save these unfortunate animals.
THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU!
