Part 2 of our 2017 recap series: Fetty, Storm and Mani. It’s easy to find a reason to say “we can’t take them in” from a distance, but when injured kittens are just sitting on the sidewalk all of that goes out the window. I carried Mani home in my arms because we already had six foster kittens and every single trap/carrier was already being used. I whispered “it’s going to be ok” into her ear over and over again as we walked, though I was terrified that she would get scared and jump away. (I still hold her close and whisper in her ear every day, we both find it quite calming). What seemed like a dark time for us ended up being one of the most beautiful and impactful experiences of my life. You helped us find a way. Just when we needed it most, caring strangers from around the world stepped in and saved these guys with support, donations, supplies and good vibes. I will never, ever forget that. Thank you. 🙏🏼🎶: @odesza . . . . . #flatbushcats #fosteringsaveslives #trapneuterreturn #tnr #spayneuter #spayandneuter #colonycaretaker #kittens #nyckittens #brooklynkittens #rescuekittens #catrescue #adoptdontshop #adoptme #catdude #animalrescue #savealife #thinkadoptionfirst #brooklyncats #catsofny #furbaby #flatbush #brooklyn #communitycats #kittenrescue

Anyways, I hope your Spring Break was everything you hoped it would be! Cherish the lull before your next midterm, and be sure to take a moment to celebrate your unbirthday. You only have 364 of them each year!
