Last seen - Jack - Fab feline duo Jack n Murcy are two of the latest cute kittens to be saved, rescued and looked after by Saving Grace Rescue Inc. . .
'Super Jack' fell from a tree where the mother had put the kittens when he was just a few days old. Whilst, Murcy arrived from an LA shelter with severely deformed hind legs. Despite her disability, she was just as playful as all the kittens. Just recently, Murcy was adopted and is now living the life at her forever loving home - having been nurtured at Saving Grace.
Founded by Amber Holly, the centre is a non-profit feline rescue for at risk kittens aged one day to 8 weeks and injured, abused or special needs kittens in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Coming up to their 17th year, they have given a second chance to stray and feral kittens - often, quite literally, saving cats in danger of being euthanised elsewhere.
They have enabled the adoption of approximately 700 kittens. During kitten season, eight to 15 volunteers and foster parents care for nearly 20 kittens at a time.
Holly was inspired to start Saving Grace when fostering her first kitten, the titular Grace. The bottle baby suffered the neurological disorder, cerebellar hypoplasia, causing tremors and a lack of coordination - that can result in walking difficulties when the cat is nervous or excited.
Sadly Grace passed away recently but her legacy lives on through the shelter's sterling service, Amber and her Saving Grace blog and Facebook page.
Amber says: "Providing the kittens with enough affection and socialization is an ongoing effort. The primary job of many of the volunteers is to just play and cuddle with the kittens.
"The greatest rewards are, first, when a kitten relaxes and purrs the purr of feeling safe and warm, and second, when adopters send me happy updates with their new family member.
"Everyone can help with overpopulation by spaying and neutering their own pets, notifying feral fix groups when they see feral animals that need to be altered, and by volunteeri - San Francisco, California, United States - Wednesday 21st May 2014
