Two malnourished newborn kittens, found on the streets at barely 5 days old, are in desperate need of care and attention. Mom is nowhere to be seen, and the two young girls have obviously gone without food for a long time.
The two kittens were taken to Melinda Blain, founder of Bottle Baby Fosters in Phoenix, Arizona, where they were treated with care and attention 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
It wasn’t long before the small sisters began to thrive as a result of Melinda’s hard work. Their young bodies soon grew fat, and they were cloaked in thick fur coats.
Their eyes gradually opened, and they began to investigate their new surroundings. Luna and Soleil were the names Melinda gave them.
Melinda had saved their lives, but she still had life to save. Melinda is working on a program to sterilize as many cats as possible in the area’s wild cat colonies with the help of other local TNR predators.
By no means is this a simple process. A task hampered by the fact that the basic components needed to perform a competent job are difficult to achieve.
Every dollar Melinda and her team can raise goes into providing continuing medical treatment, food, and other necessities to these cats and kittens in order to spare them from a life of misery. She also required at least a dozen more traps to finish her mission of saving as many lives as she could.
More money was required, and Melinda just happened to know two adorable fluffy faces that would gladly assist. Two kittens who would become the spokes-kitties for a new fundraising campaign!
It didn’t take Melinda long to meet her goal of raising $1000.00 with the support of Luna and Soleil.
Now the group of determined volunteers can finish their present TNR program while still having enough money to do future spay/neuter surgery.
The two siblings will stay together after such a strong start to their photography careers.
These two adorable pups have been pre-adopted and will soon be on their way to California after their spay surgery.
Let’s hope we’ll be able to communicate with Luna and Soleil via a new social media account.
It would be a tragedy if their “meowdeling” careers came to an end so soon after such a promising start.
Thank you to Melinda and her crew for continuing to aid stray and wild cats, and most importantly, to Luna and Soleil!
