This is Chloe. I did not remember if I posted her story yet. Back in September, I scooped her up on the way home from a football game. She was roaming around a semi busy street near a deserted farm. When I grabbed her she was supper friendly and I knew she had to have belonged to someone. But, I took her in anyway. I did not notice till the next day that she must have just given birth. I was heart broken, because her babies were abandoned. The farm she was at was too big and I walked to it to see if I could hear anything. Nothing. So, I decided that one rescue was better than none. It is always a hard thing for me knowing I missed saving lives. I did not know what else to do. Release her and let her fend for herself. I doubt her new born babies would have lasted the two days that I had her. But this all seems familiar. People dumping their pregnant or young families off at farms, thinking that is where they will survive. Anyway, my intention was to have her spayed and put her up for adoption. Though, I rarely adopt kitties out that are adults and my only means is Craigslist. So, I adopted her myself. I have more kitties than I should, but definitely not enough to count as a hoarder by all means...lol But, Chloe was such a sweetie. When I rescued her she was only about 5 to 6 pounds. She is a spoiled kitty these days. She begs for food everytime I enter the kitchen. She is now a hefty 10lbs! WOW. She is happy and living a good life and making friends of my other kitties.
