Rescuers say it all the time, "Now I've seen everything." But Mom Cat Acacia just laughed; and said "You ain't seen nothin' yet!" To prove her point, Acacia gave birth to four babies. In a nest, in a tree. Yep, the clever stray found a safe and cozy hidey-hole and delivered Spruce, Sylvan, Willow, and Hemlock, twenty feet up, away from prying human eyes The property owner, who had been feeding Mom, guessed that Acacia had been coming and going from the nest for just over a week. We knew that, if there really were babies up there, they would… READ MORE >

TOGETHER FOREVER… Mittens and Girl are two lucky gals.

Posted on Thursday, April 30th

First they brought home Mittens (left) when we sent out a plea. She was part of a large intake we did from a person with too many animals. She was shy and scared and the Reynolds helped her.
