We hope that you will consider joining us for some of our upcoming holiday events. Thank you for all of the support you have given to ICS this year, and every year. Our kitties are truly fortunate for such a wonderful community, and we all hope that you enjoy a restful and wonderous holiday season!
Young Henry Zemlik recently celebrated his 9th birthday and instead of presents he asked for donations of supples for the ICS. Henry and his brother and their mom, Marina, recently stopped in with all these wonderful donations of litter and food and toys for the cats and kittens at the ICS. This is the second year that Henry has asked for these birthday donations and brought them in for our cats. What a wonderful young man! What a wonderful family to think of helping our cats and kittens. Thank you again Henry. And the kitties hope you and your brother will come visit them again soon!
Our fosters are all such amazing people. They not only give their time but also their love to their 'charges' when they agree to foster for the Independent Cat Society. We thank each and every one of them. From the ones who take in the mommas with kittens or who are about to have kittens, to the ones that take the young babies without a momma or the ones who choose to help the older kitties who can't adjust to shelter life and the ones who take our 'special needs' kitties who have health issues and need more care than we can give them at the shelter. These are all wonderful caring people without who the ICS could not function. We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!
Just one example of our ICS fosters is the the foster dad who cared for Damien and Jimmy and their two other fostermates, Callie and Cathloua, for several years. But within the last year we were fortunate enough to find wonderful homes for all four of these kitties. But happily the foster dad is able to visit regularly with Damien and Jimmy in their new forever home with Dee Dunheim. And they seem to love having him come to visit. They have the best of both worlds. A new wonderful forever home with Dee and regular visits from their former foster dad.
