It's not very often that I use the Cute to beg... but every once and a while, a group of kittens or a special cat just gets to me. This is one of those times.
There is a litter of cow-kittens and their cow momma at a kill shelter in Georgia. They are not safe and are in dire need of rescue. I just heard that some more mommas came in today, so that means this group is getting closer to not making it out. :(
A rescue needs to pull them, but what we really need is a foster for them to go to. If you can take them -- and you are ANYWHERE -- let me know and we'll see what we can do and if there's any way to get them out alive and to you. They don't have long!
Just look at these faces... Below is the post directly from the shelter. I am not sure how much time they have left, so if you can help them, please speak up ASAP! And even if you can't, please share this post.
Here's the post directly from the shelter:
"Can you get over these little Cow pies? Look at the one under her arm......she adores her babies and snuggles them up close to her. She has 4 little cow spotted kits, and she is a young thing herself. This girl is VERY sweet and loving.
Please give her a second chance, and help her babies live safely.

We are very rescue friendly and are more than happy to work with any rescue group as long as the group has a valid Georgia Department of Agriculture license! Any rescue group, whether in or out of state, that takes pets from Georgia shelters, is required, by Georgia law, to have a rescue license issued by the Georgia Department of Agriculture's Animal Protection Division. Having tax exempt status is not the same as a license. For more information on obtaining a license, please call (404) 656-4914.

UPDATE Sun, 5/22: As of yesterday, this family is still alive in the kill shelter. Am working with a couple people to see if we can get them out (hopefully) tomorrow and get them somewhere safe. No definite news yet. I'm not even sure if they're still there since no one asked today. If they are there, it's getting too close to comfort! I wish I was local and could go scoop them up myself. Keeping paws crossed still!
UPDATE Fri, 6/3: Best of my knowledge these babies are still alive. They were 2 days ago anyway. I have rescues that can pull them, people who will help fund raise, but no final destination for them to go to. :( What we need is a foster in Georgia or a miracle! Please keep sharing.
UPDATE Mon, 6/6: THE COW FAMILY IS SAFE! Yay! Oh, this is the best news. The Humane Society of Forsyth County nearby them came through at the last-minute and offered them a spot! It's a no-kill shelter, so these babies and momma are now worry free! Happy happy happy! Here's more of the story: http://coveredincathair.com/content/not-my-watch-believe-miracles
