|Martin, Dean and Marley are ready to go!|
Today 15 cats are hopping on the road and heading for five cities through the U.S.!
All of these cats were saved from the local kill shelter by me, and with the help of the ever-amazing Cutehead community, Good Karma Pet Rescue and a slew of other wonderful friends, all of these cats are safe and heading to happy lives!
They leave this morning at 9 a.m. ET from Fort Lauderdale. I'll be sharing updates and pictures on Your Daily Cute's Facebook page and also on Twitter using the hashtag #15catroadtrip.
For the past couple weeks, we've been getting the kitties all vetted and fixed and healthy for travel (big thanks to Stacey at Good Karma Pet Rescue for orchestrating this part!). They have been in various foster homes waiting for their big day, and today is it!
Twelve drivers, two sleepover homes and 28 hours of driving scheduled -- these kitties are traveling 1,734 miles and will arrive at their final spot on Sunday afternoon!
MEET THE KITTIES!
|There are two more than this!|
|Look how cute Emmie is!|
Buzz, Ellie and Emmie - These three kittens were surrendered to animal control even though there were gorgeous, wonderful cats. So sad to see this happen. So happy they are safe! They are going to OARS also. Emmie is particularly beautiful if you ask me, a sweet black girl.
|Me and Berger! He's a lapcat!|
Bobby - Ah, Bobby. He is going to Heather's home, too! He is the cutest thing and so sweet, but there was no interest in him. The shelter kept begging for his rescue... and finally it came!
|Candy got dressed for Christmas!|
Blacky and Missy (not pictured) - Two big black cats saved from animal control also! Yay for so many black cats on this transport! They are getting dropped off in Jacksonville, FL.
So that's the 15! And what's even more exciting... There are three more cats going on separate transports that start tomorrow! I'll write about them tomorrow. (You can follow them on the Facebook page, too, and using hashtag #3catroadtrip.
I am so grateful for such a fabulous community of friends we have here. We can do so much good when we work together! Thank you to everyone who is a part of this and who helped share and network and donate. These cats will be on the road for three days...
Let's cheer them on and get these babies home!
