When you look at tiny Missy, it’s hard to see how someone could throw her out of a moving vehicle in Española. But, two weeks ago, someone did and the 7-week-old kitten was lucky to escape with only minor injuries.
Although a witness was able to write down the license plate number, local authorities have been unable to track down the driver, and the tiny tabby is recovering in foster care.
But, like Missy, the staff at Española Valley Humane Society wants to move past the tragedy and focus on the kitten’s future. “We don’t know who did this to Missy, but it is certain that it was someone who did not love her. So, now it is time for us to find her someone who does,” said Linda Sanchez, foster care coordinator.
And that’s exactly what shelter staff plans to do. At the Seventh Annual Santa Fe Kitten Festival, the shelter plans to have nearly 100 cats and kittens up for adoption at two locations, all in search of permanent, loving families.
Missy will be there, but so will Peony, a 10-month-old Tortoiseshell kitten who was surrendered by her owner nursing four kittens of her own, and Jake — one of four polydactyl kittens.
