Nemo: Helps Me Help Other Kittens

20140111_134834January 11, 2014. It is hard to believe that our young Nemo is now 14-weeks-old!

When I brought him home in October, I did not expect that we would adopt him. However, as the weeks went by, it became clear that Nemo had, in fact, adopted us.

At his last veterinarian visit,  Nemo weighed 3 pounds 11 ounces. That is a far cry from the couple of ounces he weighed on the day he was brought to Catvando TNR.

I try to do volunteer work for Catvando as often as I can. Last year, I fostered three different kittens (Caroline, Julia, and Charlie). All three now live in their forever homes.

The day I acquired Nemo, I was at the Catvando office doing some computer work. Today, Nemo snuggled on my lap while I worked on computer files for Catvando in my home office. 

There are many different ways to help an organization such as Catvando TNR. While their main mission is to Trap, Neuter and Release feral cats. They also end up fostering and finding homes for “friendlies” or the kittens who are young enough to be tamed. The organization also takes care of medical needs for so many cats and kittens. If you cannot foster or do volunteer work, consider sending a donation or send the group something from their Wish List  on Amazon.

Many hands make light the work – or perhaps that saying should be changed to “many paws make light the work.” You get the idea. Give what you can, be it your time, your talent, your extra change. One person can make the difference for the life of some of our furry friends!
