Let's meet each one of them and get to know them, shall we?
Fiona was rescued from Broward Animal Control with her babies. They were all very sick, and unfortunately her babies did not make it, despite tons of care from their foster mom, Cutehead Rita A. Fiona, however, she came through like a champ. There were a couple times where Rita thought Fiona might not make it, but both of them are fighters, and she pulled through!
Now she is a gorgeous girl who got her lucky break thanks to a connection between fellow Cutehead Robin O. of Covered in Cat Hair and her friend Birgit F. in Jacksonville, FL. Birgit had messaged her about adopting a kitty and Robin pointed her our way... and the rest is history. Fiona is a lucky girl!
Charlie was dumped at a vet's office in Fort Lauderdale, FL. He tested positive for both FIV and Feline Leukemia, and the person requested he be put down. But Charlie is such a sweet cat that the vet just didn't have the heart to do it. So when Cutehead Maribel M. walked in to the office and the vet led her back to meet "someone special"... she of course immediately fell in love with him, and agreed with the vet's decision.
Enter Rikki's Refuge, a wonderful place in Virginia. They agreed to take Charlie in and hopefully find him a home. And if not, they will love him for life. He is a special boy!

Pepper was originally rescued with his sister, Cocoa, from Broward Animal Control a few months ago. Poor Cocoa got sick and did not make it, but Pepper grew big and strong -- and super sweet! Pepper's foster mom says he is one of the sweetest cats she's ever fostered!
He was supposed to head up on a previous transport last month, but was a little sick, so we held him back to be safe. Today he is ready to hit the road with the rest of the herd and go to his new mom, Cutehead Lin F. in Virginia!
Batgirl was dumped at my dad's office building parking lot. There was a cat there that he'd been feeding for years, and we think someone just thought it would be "okay" to put a kitten there also. As if this baby would be fine because the other cat was. Not true!
My fabulous dad jumped into action, got a trap and got the little black baby safe. One look at her and we knew her name was Batgirl. Look at the size of those ears! She has been in foster with a coworker of his, Cutehead Ashlea M., and now she gets to head up to her new mom, Meredith D. in New Jersey!

Freeda was rescued from Hillsborough County Animal Services in Tampa, FL. Her time was just about up, and she was saved at the very last minute! She is a gorgeous sweetheart, who got the gift of a second chance at life just in the nick of time!
Cuteheads Maribel M. and Kd P. worked together to pull this one off, and her new mom, Patty P. in New Hampshire is the amazing person who made it all happen! Freeda truly had no time left, and now she has all the time in the world!
Frita was part of the Ginger Nuggets that we transported to HART of Maine a while back. She was a little sick then, and not ready to travel yet, so we held her back until the next transport.
While she was getting healthy, she happened to become best friends with another kitty who was sick at the time (Sweet Pea nearly died and was forcefed for two weeks till she got better), and the two of them got healthy together -- and got to be BFF 4 Ever! And so when it came time for Frita to head up to HART, we just couldn't let her go without Sweet Pea... so Sweet Pea is hitching a ride too and the two of them are going together!
