Mia was rescued by Chris, a middle school boy. Chris lived in a neighborhood overrun by stray cats and unleashed dogs. A kindly neighbor had been feeding them and the group continued to multiply. We pulled together volunteers to do SNR (trap, spay/neuter and return) all the neighborhood strays! Chris was worried about this particular kitten, however. Mia has only one eye and he was afraid that she would soon be killed by one of the neighborhood dogs and so he brought her to his teacher (the matriarch of the Dara Sanctuary) to rescue.
Today, Mia is 14 years old, a senior cat, with some health and dental issues.
