Heros and Villains

Grey tabby catTwo weeks ago, in Toronto, Jonathan Breedon heard cries coming from a woodpile near his home. Upon investigation, he discovered ten kittens in a plastic shopping bag, their umbilical cords still attached. Horrified, he took the kittens home, cleaned them, then fed them milk. Once the kittens' immediate needs were met, Jonathan wrapped them in a towel, and took them to the Humane Society where they have been added to an existing litter.

This is one of those stories that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, yet at the same time, my blood runs cold. The world needs more Jonathans, but it can do with a lot less of those bastards who so easily toss away ten tiny lives.

Thanks to my dad for pointing this story out to me.

Hooray for happy endings! May these kittens find homes with their own Jonathan.

some good friends found a kitten in a similar situation (just one) less than a week old. She is a vet tech so they were able to raise it to cathood. That is the BEST cat I have ever seen. Loving and totally devoted to them.

I hope they do, NT. Spring usually means a full house at the shelters.

Isn't that great, Jan? I think the cat just knew how very lucky he was to have been found by your friends.

Good on Jonathan for saving those little lives.

And yes, here's hoping they'll all find homes, that are just as warm, kind, and loving.
