You might remember The Bakery Bunch family of cats. They were all named after bread: Poppy (the mom), Melba, Wonder, Raisin and Pumpernickel. We rescued them from animal control in Fort Lauderdale, FL and they went up to HART of Maine rescue. Well, Poppy's babies all found their forever homes (in pairs, yay!) and now it's Poppy's turn.
|Poppy and her babies in Florida... before she went to Maine!|
Rules are that kitties have to make it to their final destination (no cat-napping, no matter how much the drivers joke about it), and if you want to adopt, you have to adopt from their destination rescue. So Melanie put in an application with HART, and now we're doing a reverse transport to get Poppy back down to Georgia!

Yay for Poppy getting a great forever home! She will officially be the most-traveled Cutehead kitty ever!

It should be an amazing day!

You can follow along with their transport today and tomorrow on Your Daily Cute's Facebook page and on Twitter using the hashtag #PoppySylvestra. I'll be tweeting as @YourDailyCute, of course! Help us cheer these kitties on!
Poppy hits the road at 6:00 a.m. from Cumberland, Maine to kick things off tomorrow!
