This summer was a whirlwind of urgent calls for cats and kittens.

One such call came from a frantic family who found a lifeless tiny kitten on their lawn.


A Ruff House volunteer rushed over to see if we could help.  Nessie was in dire straits and we didn’t know if he would make it.  Regardless, we wrapped him up, and with some simple treatments; fluids and a sugary supplement, Nessie was a true miracle, which is how he earned his name!  (Nes means Miracle in Hebrew)

Nessie soon found himself in a loving foster home


where he made a new friend (RHR Alum Arthur)



and a few short weeks later, Nessie was formally adopted!
