Fostering urgently needed
Pictured here are Ronny, Terry, and Moggy, three kittens removed from a colony south of the Midway and due to be handed over to PAWS Chicago's adoption program later this week. Some cats and kittens from Hyde Park Cats are already available at PAWS, including Molly and Norman, Tandy, Curio, and Pipsqueak. The 36-hour adoptathon is going until tonight at 10 p.m., so get on in there to meet your match.
We've recently taken in several kittehs who need foster homes. Lady Midnight is a juvenile black female, Ori ("my light." in honor of Hanukkah) is a three-month-old kitten, and Kislev (the name of the Jewish month we are currently in) is a young male black cat (his foster home seems stable). All three of these beautiful black cats need our help! Ori was just taken in yesterday from an alley and has a large gash on his leg. He is alert and functioning fine but needs to see a vet A.S.A.P. We are trying to arrange a ride to a vet either today or tomorrow. Email us with your offer of a ride.
We are particularly in need of people to foster over the University's Winter Break, roughly Dec. 14-Jan. 4. If you have a safe space for a rescued cat, can you consider fostering over this time period? Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you can help.
