Tabitha, from Tragedy to Triumph

Tabitha was found, crushed and suffocating, in a dumpster last fall. The tiny kitten received worlds of love and the best of care, and is ready for adoption now.

You may remember Tabitha,the tiny kitten found in an apartment complex dumpster last September, crushed and suffocating in a plastic bag. She was given into the care of Albany NY rescue group Orange Street Cats, spent time in a hospital oxygen chamber, then was cleared for foster care. Tabitha has made a slow but steady recovery over the past four and a half months, dealing with lung and other issues as she grew from tiny, injured kitten to strong young cat.

Tabitha was recently given the green light for her spay surgery, which she came through with flying colors, and she will be made available for adoption this weekend. Tabitha will attend an adoption event with Orange street Cats to be held this upcoming Saturday, February 11, at Pearl’s Pet Supplies in Delmar, New York. Potential adopters will have to fill out an extensive form and be prepared to tend to any ongoing medical needs.

We could not be more pleased to report that this one little victim who had such a bad start in life has come so far with the love and care she received from the moment she was rescued onward.
