This is Poppy enjoying some sunshine before the snow storm. Poppy, fka Lolita was running around Inwood Hill Park when she was rescued. She was abandoned by someone who no longer wanted her. Confused and scared, she hid under a bench and timidly approached passerby’s until someone actually did something and scooped her up. The rest is history!
Cassandra was found in Inwood in such awful conditions, that she the last surviving member of her litter. Now she lives happily in Woodside, Queens with her human family: mom, dad and a sister!
Lived in an airless basement of a deli of the South Bronx, Jellybean used to hunt scraps on the street to feed herself and her two babies. When she was rescued by Little Wanderers right before Easter 2017, she showed up starving and was covered in green Easter egg dye. Regardless of her living hardship, Jellybean is the sweetest and most friendly cat, so Little Wanderers thought she deserves a chance of indoor living.
Remember Joyce? The LW Rescue Team found her in the Hunts Point section of the South Bronx, sitting on a piece of tinfoil under a tree. She was so filthy and matted that she needed a lion cut that took several hours. She had broken teeth and was infected with parasites. Turns out she had been dumped there at the tender age of 14, and although she was microchipped it was obvious she had been abandoned by her owner.
But Little Wanderers came to the rescue!
Just look at the contentment on the faces of these babies! They are truly happy in their forever home. Bingo and Meeny have been adopted, and they couldn’t be happier! Thanks so much to rockstar foster mom Katie who is keen on getting all of this litter adopted. Good luck Katie! Fostering works!
Some great news, Little Wanderers family! This little cutie pie is Bartolo, or now affectionately called “BB” after the adorable little droid in the movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Well BB here and his rock star foster mom have had a foster fail. Sounds bad, doesn’t it?
That is the look right there on that cat’s face. The look of happiness, contentment, security, satiation, safety. The look that comes from a cat that knows it has found its forever home and their forever parent or parents. The look of trust and loyalty, from feelings of knowing that they are surrounded by friends and loved ones, that they will not have to fight or scrounge from garbage for their next meal, and that they are in a safe place where they won’t be hurt or tortured or abused.
