Forest was found in early May by a family camping in Pollock Pines approximately 5 miles into the woods. Late one evening they heard a cat crying and found her in the bushes, barely alive. They kept her in their tent overnight until they could bring her to safety. When she arrived at Fat Kitty City she was barely alive. Only skin and fur covered her bones and she was cold.
We went to work providing her with nourishment, and necessary fluids and warmed her body as best we could and loved on her, told her how special she was, and asked her to hang on and fight. To our surprise, this sweet little angel was bright-eyed and just a little more bushy-tailed in the morning and asking for food. She hasn't stopped eating since and thanks to her foster home she has put on several pounds and is now ready for a new beginning and a forever home.
We choose not to think about how she ended up so far out in the woods, but our sweet Forest reminds us every day through her forgiveness and affection how resilient our and trusting our companion animals are and she is the epitome of what unconditional love is because she gives it every day even though at some point it wasn't given to her.
