Two kittens need an angel!

Theirs is a tale of loss, struggle, and perseverance, and now Danny & DeVito are ready to find the furry tail ending to their story.

Back in July, ASAP received a call to rescue more than a dozen tiny, sick babies who had been orphaned. The kittens were so ill and fragile at just 3 weeks old that, despite the tireless efforts of several experienced ASAP fosters, many of them were just too sick to survive. But Danny & DeVito proved to be fighters. These guys have spent the last 6 months in foster care undergoing treatments, taking medications, and in DeVito’s case, having surgery to remove an eye.

Because of their very rough start in life, they’ll always be a sniffly pair, and will need a very special person who understands their needs, but they’re still full of affection and playfulness, just like any other kitten, and deserve all the love and comfort a family can offer them.

On a personal note, my 5-year-old daughter and I were visiting ASAP the other day and happened to meet Danny and DeVito. They were like puppy dogs, running up to greet us and to play. If I didn’t already have a full house of pets, I would have taken them home myself!

Will you be Danny & DeVito’s Angel, and give them the furry tail ending they’ve fought so hard to find?

Cats thought to be 10 years or older receive a full blood panel evaluation, thus assuring that the cat is indeed healthy and adoptable, Medical and drug coverage through ASAP’s vet for 2 weeks beyond adoption, if necessary, Temperament evaluation and Cat Carrier (you can save the County money by bringing your own).
