We found this kitty in a parking lot on one of the hottest days in July, she was so small she could fit in my hand , abandon from her mom...... I said I want her !!!!. I rushed her into Spring Valley vet clinic where she was cared for by some of the best techs. They worked on getting our girl hydrated and then went to work trying to straighten her legs. Over the course of several weeks of constant care by Chelsea and her mom Nancy bottle feeding her and giving her lots of love ... we now have today our new ambassador to Guardian Angels . When you come to our facilty you will be met by this kind and gentle soul. With soft meows she will win your heart like she did ours.
