Hannah Shaw of Philadelphia never imagined that she’d rescue kittens, let alone that she’d do it as a job. But when Shaw found a kitten stuck in a tree, she knew she had to take action. And that day changed her life.

Shaw climbed up the tree and rescued the kitten whom she named Coco. Coco was so young that he needed special care, but Shaw found only limited resources available for the little kitten. She raised and kept Coco, but also knew that there were many other kittens in need of help.

About two weeks after Shaw found Coco in a tree, she found another kitten named Rufus, also stuck in a tree. Then there was Zeke, who Shaw took in a month later. Zeke was much younger than the other two kittens, and was only 3 or 4 days old when Shaw’s friend discovered him. Shaw was called in and researched how to care for such a young kitten online.

Shaw was working in public school at the time, and would sneak Zeke in with her so she could feed him throughout the day. Eventually Zeke began to join in on classroom events, even going on a field trip to a museum.

Shaw successfully cared for Zeke and adopted him out when he was eight weeks old. She knew that other kittens needed the same care, and set out to help as many kittens as she could.

Today Shaw fosters kittens, speaks to the media and to animal shelters about resources, and runs educational programs. Her rescue, Kitten Lady, has saved the lives of countless young kittens. Be sure to visit the rescue’s website to learn more!

  1. Thank you for saving these babies in need. You are truly an angel. I wish you much luck, health, and happiness with your saving and the same with your furkids.

  2. I live in Sweden and my kitten was paralyzed in the back part. We have a horrible law here that can be interpreted as paralyzing cats must die. Now my veterinarian interpreted that law, which led to killing my kitten against my will. he took the help of the police. He had the argument that paralyzed cats suffer from ulcers. have you been involved in the fact that paralyzed cats suffer from ulcers? If they get it, it’s easy to remedy and cure? If I can prove that bedsores are not a problem, the next cat can live.
