"My name is Charlie"...Charlie's looking for his Angel

Once upon a time, there were two little kittens who were dumped at a feral cat colony, where they were each exposed to some very hazardous conditions. One of them was never seen again. But I was taken away from all that, and now Big City Little Kitty works for me, my name is Charlie.
I walked into a warehouse where I manage a feral cat colony
and a kitten came running up to me.
I thought, WHAT?
He was not feral in any way, shape or form.
He came straight up to me and introduced himself.
I was told there were 2, but the other had not been seen for a week:(
All of the cats in the warehouse were named after characters on LOST, and considering he was a skinny little thing with light hair and gorgeous eyes, I named him Charlie.
Charlie offered me a job, to rescue him.
I had to accept this offer
as I couldn't sleep at night knowing he was left there unattended.
And so, I became, "Charlie's Angel".

It seems Charlie had another angel, a feral cat I had spayed 2 years ago when she was only 4 months old. She followed us everywhere we turned in the warehouse, watching every move I made with the kitten she had been protecting. This was odd because on any other day she would never have revealed herself or her whereabouts to me.
Thanks Beauty!
Another one of Charlie's Angels.
Charlie had an enormous belly, full of worms and who knows what parasites!
Aside from that gigantic belly, the rest of him was skin and bones.
So I borrowed a carrier from Mildred, she lives around the corner, and she drove us home.
I de-wormed him asap and gave him a bath.
I cleared the caked on dirt crammed between his toes
and the fleas and other bugs out of his fur.
He cleaned up nice!
And after a couple of days his belly was looking a little more normal!
I'm a sucker for a little bird legged, big bellied kitten!
And now he's happy as can be!
He one of the most docile, content, happy kittens I have ever met.
He does not cry to be let out, but loves getting scooped up for a snuggle!
And man does he love that Teddy Bear!
Charlie's looking for one more good angel, a forever angel.
Are you Charlie's Angel?

Burlap and Dungaree were Adopted!!! TOGETHER!!!

Burlap and Dungaree have one last good snuggle
at Big City Little Kitty Foster Home
Last Friday, a LOVELY couple came to meet Burlap and Dungaree. They, of course, fell in love with both of them. So when the mama asked the papa, "So what do you want to do?" and he said "Whatever you want to do, but I don't want to break them up" she said "Lets take them both." YES! And then I fell in love with them!
They get to go TOGETHER!
So I had to say good bye:(
I gave them some good bye treats and a good kiss and snuggle.
They have a 2 year old cat at home, Shag, he used to have 2 feline friends at their home in St. Louis! So they brought them home! I just heard from them and when I asked how things are going..."FANTASTIC"! Woohoo!
Dungaree and Burlap were part of a TNR project in Astoria, Queens.
They were found in the back yard of a fabric store.
They were a little skinny, had eye infections and in need of a good de-worming:)
But before long, they were purrfect!
I am so happy for these guys!!!
They really got a great new home with such a lovely couple!
Best of luck to you Burlap and Dungaree!
