It's Transport Day: 4 "Cheese" Kittens Heading to Texas! #CheeseCatsCaravan

Yay! It's transport day again! This weekend we have four adorable kittens on the road with us -- all named after cheese!

Brie, Blue, Cheddar and Gorgonzola were found by Cutehead Donna D. with their mom, Princess Izzy. She took them all in and decided to keep Izzy, but couldn't keep all her kittens. After a long search all over to find a rescue to take them, fellow Cutehead Robin B. stepped up to take the babies in and help them find their forever homes!

Only one thing... Robin lives in San Antonio, Texas -- so they asked if we could help! And, of course, Cuteheads are happy to come to the rescue and help give some pretty kitties a ride!

Meet the Cheese Kittens and their mom, Izzy!
We are cheeeeeeese if you pleeeeease...

It was a couple weeks of working hard to find all their drivers, but we are officially on the road today!

And then, guess what? When it got around that we were going this route, it turns out a pretty black kitty named Daisy needed a ride along the same route... so she is hitchhiking with the Cheese Kittens! We are driving Miss Daisy!

Daisy is going to her forever home about an hour east of Montgomery, AL. She is a lucky girl!

Daisy was saved from Gaston Animal Control!

Tremendous Thank You!
Huge thanks for Donna D. (@TigerBoyTheCat) for rescuing this precious family and everyone who donated for their vet care and boarding, especially Dana M. (@danapixie on Twitter!) for helping coordinate and round up drivers!

And huge thanks to all our Cutehead drivers! YOU all make this possible. Carol G. (@Gabby_da_Tabby), Terry F. (@brian106sc), Tia R., Donna H., Karla M., Caroline F., Laura P. and Vivian P. (vivian_perkins)! And super huge thanks to Cutehead Jan H. for hosting the sleepover Saturday night!

And the biggest thanks of all to the new moms and caretakers: Robin B. (@CheshireK) for taking the Cheese Kittens and Sherry O. for adopting Daisy!

P.S. The Cheese Kittens are going to be ready for adoption soon if anyone is interested! Let me know and I'll put you in touch with Robin!

P.P.S. You may also see the hashtag #DashMemorialRescueRun along with this one on our trip. A great Twitter friend for many years, who helped and shared and supported so many kitties in need, was shockingly killed by two dogs this week. @DashKitten was a friend to many, and a longtime friend of Cute. One of our drivers, Brian F., had the idea to dedicate his leg of this transport to Dash, and I thought that was a wonderful gesture -- so I said I'd tweet using that hashtag also. Our hearts go out to Dash's mom, Marjorie (@whskr), at this sad time. Hopefully these kittens we are transporting will have long, happy, wonderful lives in his memory!

  6. We didn't realize this was not the final stop for the cheese kitties. We'll be purraying that Robin find nice homes for them. We heard over at Brian's that Daisy turned out not to be a girl and got renamed. Hope her new family didn't mind. Keep up the good work Cute Heads.Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  7. Hehe, yes! We found out Daisy was a boy and the shelter renamed him Ally. Then his new mom decided she wanted him to be Frankie... so he had 3 names already in no time at all! :) She was still thrilled!
