A trapping triumph

In January 2015, RedRover Responders volunteers braved long hours and winter storms to help more than one hundred cats on St. George Island, off the coast of Florida.

How Lucky got back on his feet

Jenny’s buddy Lucky started experiencing episodes where he had trouble walking and kept falling over. After the episodes started he seemed to be tired more often than not. Jenny was seeing her friend, her cuddle buddy, her source of comfort, fade before her eyes.

For the last ten years Jenny and Lucky have been constant companions. From childhood and living with Jenny’s parents, to going to college and moving out on their own, Jenny and Lucky have done everything together. To lose her furry family member to this mystery illness was unthinkable to Jenny.

What is the sound of 700 cats purring?  We just might find out as the cats rescued from hoarding conditions perk up under the care of the UAN volunteers  (now known as the RedRover Responders). The effect of a full week of regular care--feeding, watering, clean quarters, medical treatment--shows.
