On October 4th, 8 month old dilute calico, Angel came into our shelter with a kitten that she saved. The lady that brought them to us said that Angel found Echo, a 6 week old siamese kitten sitting in the middle of Dartmoor Road in Bella Vista. Angel literally stood over the top of the kitten protecting her from traffic. Echo the kitten was in very bad shape and had to go to the vet that same day where they feared she would not survive. Angel had her shots and was placed in her cage but she was very depressed over Echo not being with her. Echo survived and returned to the shelter for her shots and a very purrriffic reunion with Angel! Angel has since accepted and become surrogate mom to several other new kitten arrivals, cleaning them, letting them nurse on her and calming their fears. Angel and Echo, both now spayed are available for adoption at our shelter.
