These kittens from different litters where born to mothers that had been dumped in the country. They were infested with internal parasites and unfortunately three of their tiny litter mates didn’t make it through the first around of treatment. These seven survivors are doing well and now have a chance for a better future. Bringing an animal into your life is a responsibility and dumping an animal is never acceptable.
