Being in a shelter can be stressful for animals, especially kittens who haven’t had a lot of socialization. Two of these kittens, Mousse and Madison, are among the 826 kittens that have been in OHS foster homes this year.
When Mousse arrived at OHS, she was timid with people but enjoyed the company of other cats. Tiny Madison was underweight and refused to eat. The OHS medical team decided to put the two together. It was then that Madison began to eat and Mousse got the companionship she was craving. These two cuties are now in foster care together while they grow, heal and get ready for adoption.
