Saving Miss Daisy

This one’s courtesy of Cristal G, who tells us the following story. (She even provided a tres’ appropo headline of “Scrawny McScrawnersons,” but the movie title play on words works, no?) “Daisy and her siblings went to see the vet this morning, and she was very happy with their progress and their level of activity is so high that it proves they are beginning to thrive. These kittens came to us in the nick of time, they were very inactive when they first came in. I hope to get more photos later of the rest of the group.”

Snagged From Facebook Bonus Update Shot: Little Miss Daisy, asleep on her bed of choice!

Well done, CG, well done.



  1. Awwww, I love rescue stories……i have 2 rescues of my own (kitty and doggie)
    Can’t wait for more pics! 🙂

  2. ResQte rules!
    Come to my house leetle kittayn morsel! I also have a computer keyboard and although it is often occupied by a large orange tabbeh, I think he would be OK with sharing. 🙂

  5. I should also add that I have a calico named Daisy too! 🙂

  6. All this and she’s gorgeous, too! Definitely need frequent updates. Love to all rescuers!!!

  7. MinglesMommy says:

    OH SO SWEET!!!!! She’s tinier than my little guy when he was found in the street! SO SNORGALABLE!

  8. ;D

  9. I have four cats already and I really don’t want anymore but I don’t think I could say no to this sweet tiny beauty.

  11. SlaveToCat says:

    Sister Emile bring the smelling salts, Miss Birfle is having a spell.

  12. SlaveToCat says:

    Rolls eyes, caught down loading kitty porn from that other website again.

  13. Calicos RULE!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Step aside people, give me some space to work here please. I’ve got the Hello Kitty Defibrillator and some pink lemonade to revive Firdie. Firdie, I am prescribing you two bunnies to huff hourly until your feeling yourself again…

  15. Oy. “You’re” not “your”. Grammar fail. Sheesh 🙄

  16. Oh my goodness, what a frail darling little thing! Such a beauty.

  17. Mary (the first) says:

    Yep I’ve been following these guys on Cat’s Cradle shelter and not only that you can help them win some $$ by voting for them at the Animal Rescue Site. They are in Fargo, ND. Who doesn’t love Fargo? 😀 (Sorry I am not good at imbedding links but you can probably find those guys if you google, if you’re not already familiar with Animal Rescue site.)

  18. Fird Birfle says:

    *clutches pearls in horror*

    did you say DON”T WANT anymore??? BITE yer TONGUE, missy!!!!

  19. Fird Birfle says:

    YAY to kitty and to being calico (I would be one myself were that feasible without Sharpy markers) and to the name Daisy; and of course YAY to ceejoe!!

  20. Fird Birfle says:

    *gasp* “calico” “scrawny” “wha–?”

    *begins to breathe, shallowly*

    *snuggles bunnies, which helps immensely*

  21. MinglesMommy says:

    I live with my parents – they let me move in w/them thanks to financial issues, and they let me bring my 3 cats with me. I know how Gigi feels… my mother says I have to leave if I bring home any more cats, but I don’t know if I could resist Daisy either!

  22. That level of qteness is impossible. It simply cannot be realz.

  23. NO! NO! There is a space missing, I meant to say I don’t want any more cats for the moment. I will ALWAYS WANT the cats I have!!

  24. noellesbootcutkittenpants says:

    Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do!

  25. emmberrann says:

    Dat is a LOT of floof for such a wee li’l kitteh! Ah needs a kitteh-floof fix, and dat dere Daiseh-kitteh-morsel should be jes’boutenuff to cure it!

  26. It looks like she’s standing up in the last picture, not asleep…

  27. I’m half crazy, all for the love of you!

  28. Clairdelune says:

    You’re forgiven the fail, Nikki, it’s hard to think grammatically when faced with such emergency. I’m having palpitation also, can I have some pink lemonade? Such extreme fuzz is why the Hello Kitty Defibrillator exists.

  29. Clairdelune says:

    My kitty is also a calico rescue… a couple of weeks old, stuffed in a can, all I could see was tiny fangs in a tiny mouth, open wide in cries of desperation.. (sniff)

  30. Same here, elishab 😀 I so want to snorgle Daisy and her siblings 😀

  31. you are an angel.

  32. bernadine rousseau says:

    great happy ending she looks similiar to the calico I have as a foster right now..she was another close call

  33. Hey, you’re looking at FB Cat’s Cradle where I live in Fargo! Corky is pretty cute!
