Two feral babies saved.

These are kittens that were in the back with 2 slightly older kittens. Those that know me know I HATE going in to the back of the shelter - that is were the hard decisions are made about who is adoptable and who is not. 4 feral kittens were brought in - these 2 are the smallest. I convinced the caretakers to PLEASE let us just try and get them to come around. Two weeks I begged for. "oh no they are much too feral" they said. She opened the door to the cage and they were pretty nasty, but these two just cowered and cringed until picked up THEN the true fear came out! They zipped and tried like crazy to get away but when caught again they did not try to bite. "See!!??" I said, we can work with that!

My friend (a fellow foster volunteer) took them home where she has 2 young children that are working with them and after 2 days they are starting to purr

Aww it is always a hard decision. I have had fully non feral terrified kittens try to bite before. fear just overrides the mind! poor things. I know you hate going back there, but at least you do try to see the potential when some won't try because it is easier to just push them on through.

((hugs))

Marcia,
I can visualize you, steeling yourself, to go into THAT area...
You're a Warrior! up:up:
Bless you for advocating, for two little spirits, that couldn't, for themselves...
Now they have a chance!
You ROCK Lady!!

My Matty was like that too. He came around faster than I could have imagined. I'm so glad someone is giving them a chance. They are far to little to write off as unadoptable imo.
