Nemo and Tinkerbell – MCR

4 Paws 1 Heart is happy to send medical dollars for the care of Nemo (male Maine coon) and Tinkerbell (black/white female) who were rescued by our friends at MICHIGAN CAT RESCUE.

They were found in the cold almost frozen to death. They are 8-week old kittens who have stayed together and are obviously bonded.. They are suffering from stomach infections because they went a long time without food. They are weak right now.  Our rescue friends rescue many cats during the winter months..cats that are out in the cold who are starving and without shelter.

Please consider fostering or adoption as the number of unwanted cats never seems to end. ~ diana
