Chickpea was just a young kitten when she arrived at our shelter as a stray. Her and her siblings were brought to us by a community member who was worried about their health.
The litter was scared, shy, dehydrated and thin and Chickpea was very small for her age. Her siblings rebounded quickly and although still shy, went on to find loving homes.
But Chickpea needed more time and because of your generous support, we were able to give her as much time as she needed to regain her health and confidence. Chickpea endured multiple x-rays, rounds of blood work and several medications before she turned a corner on her way to health. She is now thriving in her foster home and her foster mom sent us this update: "When Chickie came to us she was so frail, sick and unsure of people. After weeks of force-feeding, multiple medical tests, and daily cuddle sessions her true personality has emerged: extremely playful, wonderfully sweet, and the perfect amount of naughty. It has been so rewarding to watch her learn how to be a care-free, healthy kitten. "
Your donations ensured Chickpea could receive the around-the-clock care she needed to gain weight and grow big and strong, with no time limits. We can’t wait to update you when Chickpea finds her forever family!
