Andee was spotted hobbling along the roadside on Rt. 101 in Marin County CA one day last June, tiny, dehydrated and with a fractured leg. A Marin Humane Society officer rescued her and the Society gave her the care she needed. Now she has found a home.
Andee was rescued on June 20 by Marin Humane Society staffer Andy O’Brien when a driver called the society to report seeing the little kitten walking along the highway in the midday heat. Andee was suffering from the heat, along with her fracture, so officer O’Brien rushed her to the facility with his AC blasting on high.
Marin Humane Society, located in Novato CA, is a long established and truly humane and well run facility with a placement rate that many shelters can only dream of. They say that they find homes for virtually all their animals. Despite that, even MHS is finding itself with a surplus of kittens and cats this year, like so many shelters everywhere.
The very young, tiny, one pound gray tabby cat was fortunate to come to MHS, where she was guaranteed the care she needed. Andee had surgery, and had the tip of her injured tail removed; then she stayed with a foster family for a month as she healed and grew.
She has now found a home with Chris and Veronica Harrell of Terra Linda, who learned about Andee through a news story on her. “She’s super outgoing and has really just made herself comfortable and is running around like she owns the place,” reports Chris. “She’s jumping and doing back flips.”
Andee’s story is another of a kitten in need who was saved and rehabilitated, then moved on to a good life.
