Rescue of injured "Hamlet" and his friends on a cold snowy day - 13 Jan 2009

Tuesday 1/13/09 Catskill, NY - North Street

We responded to a call reporting some abandoned cats that were starving and cold, and that one one was injured. This was in mid-January during a particularly bitter cold spell. Upon arriving, we saw a black cat dragging his hind leg through the snow....


We called/ purred to him and opened a can of cat food...he stopped.

He hopped up to the plate and in no time, he began gulping up the food.


He ate *two* cans of food............. He was so hungry and so very friendly that we just picked him up and brought him to safety.

Two more kitties appeared, homeless and hungry, but too shy to be picked up. We provided temporary shelter and food and will go now every day to fed and trap those remaining kitties. We talked to the neighbors as well.

"Hamlet" now safe and warm. He will see the vet tomorrow -- we will keep you posted!

UPDATE - 19 Jan 2009

HAMLET: This sweet boy has been through a lot. After lengthy examination and consideration, the vet determined that his leg had to be amputated. There was no alternative, and the surgery was performed. He is such a trooper and has remained affectionate and loving through all his experiences. However, in addition to losing a leg, Hamlet tested positive for Feline Leukemia and therefore needs a home with other Feline Leukemia positive cats. Animalkind will provide life time medical care for the home and family that opens its heart to him

Please donate to Animalkind so we can continue to help these helpless forgotten felines and provide care and a home for them.

UPDATE - 07 Feb 2009

A miracle !!!!!!....Hamlet was adopted and has found his safe, warm and loving home!  His bitter nights and days searching for food are over.  The medical attention and surgery no doubt saved his life.  Hamlet is a very lucky kitty...thanks to YOU Animalkind supporters.
