The weather just started getting really cold when a sanctuary volunteer noticed an old pick-up truck in the alley behind her home. It was an odd sight at 4am. The truck door opened and 3 dogs and 2 cats, all white, came flying out. She was witnessing animals heartlessly being dumped.

Unfortunately, it was too dark to get the license plate number or even see the make of the truck. The animals were confused and frozen in fear. When the animals wouldn’t disperse, the people threw rocks at them. Our volunteer ran out and by the time she reached the alley, there was no sign of any of them.

A few weeks later, a white mom cat showed up at the volunteer’s feeding station (Purrscilla) with her 2 white kittens (Violet and Marie). Fearing the kittens wouldn’t survive the freeze expected that night, she reached out to our shelter director who trapped mom and kittens immediately.

Purrscilla was a great mom, watching over her girls like a hawk. After a few weeks, the little family was turned over to a local rescue group in hopes they could be socialized for adoption. Despite their best efforts, they were just too skittish. They were returned to the sanctuary where they now call home.

Purrscilla is still a bit skittish, but she is slowly warming up to human interaction. It’s only a matter of time before she’s a loving lap cat.
