Hope for Paws rescue abandoned and homeless animals off the streets of Los Angeles and assist with complex animal rescues around the country.
While Joanne and Katie were out and about on another rescue, they were stopped by a caring person that explained there was a kitten living in a rock in his back yard. It was lucky that these two rescuers were in the right place at the right time, and they went to investigate.
On arrival they saw two kittens poking their heads out of a hollow rock, they were very spicy, there was plenty of hissing and spitting. They could see that the kittens were arriving at an age where they would become completely feral, so they felt they needed to act quickly if they had of chance of taming them and getting them adopted.
It was no easy task! The hole in the rock wasn’t very big and the first kitten was very feisty but they managed to capture him and put him into the cage. Now to tackle the next one, she was very resistant and they had to get creative with their method. They decided to use a capture noose and they succeeded, the kitten was put in the cage with her sibling.
Just when they thought their work was done they spotted another kitten! How were these kittens hiding out in such a small rock? On closer inspection they discovered there was three more kittens inside the rock and they worked hard to retrieve them all. This was a very successful rescue mission.
Now it was time to take them to the clinic to give them a well needed bubble bath and a checkup from the vet.

What a great kitten rescue, they decided to name them Cactus, Aloe, Prickly Pear, Yucca and Agave because of the yard where they were found.
It’s great to see how quickly they adapted to human company, this beautiful family must’ve known they were in a good place where they would be well looked after. Before long all of them will be put up for adoption, I do love a good rescue story with a happy ending!
