    Congratulations dear Ingrid. From me and all the family, too many to list by name but all very sincere. The seven latest rescued kittens are now tame, the medicine needed was LOVE and PATIENCE.

    Love to you from all of us.

    Congratulations on winning the reward. I’m so glad that you’re donating the money to Robin at Kitten Associates (She was a great help on getting my two cats from her sister agency- Animals in Distress). She’s had a bit of a rough patch with health problems with some of the cats in her care.
