The incredible transformation of GINNIE.

Sometimes a kitten comes into Acorn Cat Rescue and we really worry because even though their siblings peacefully thrive, certain individuals never recover from whatever trauma has happened to them and our fear is that they remain unadoptable. Ginnie came to us as a tiny kitten last summer and was terrified. If we tried to approach her…

Thanks to our excellent relationship with our vets, we are able…
