Zippy’s story isn’t new. Zippy was born five years ago, which makes it so old news according to the journalists. But, I don’t think successful cat rescue stories ever get old. And, I needed a ‘Z’ word for this post. But mostly…she’s just the sweetest, most precious little thing.
Here’s Zippy’s story, on Love Meow. There’s a lot more pictures there, so hop on over and take a peek at Zippy. There’s even a grown up picture. We’re going to end our A to Z on happy note. An adorable ginger kitten that found a forever home when her pregnant mama was rescued.
A stray cat turned up at Elyce Feliz’s door steps one day. “She is one of the sweetest and most affectionate little cats I’ve ever come across,” said Elyce. She named her Viva because she is a little diva.
As Elyce was trying to find her a good home, she noticed that Viva’s belly was getting rounder each day. “It’s not because we’ve been overfeeding her. She’s pregnant,” wrote Elyce on her flickr.
On January 10, 2011, five little furry babies were brought into this world. One of them was a little oddball named Zippy.
“Zippy is the only red-head in the litter of Viva’s five kittens. She is usually first to wake up for dinner, and very feisty when claiming a spot on Mama’s tummy.
She is the most vocal of the kittens. Her eyes began opening first, at just a week old.”
