A Rowdy Tale: The happy ending is a new beginning

Here’s a follow-up story about Rowdy, a kitten who got a big boost up in life from Cat’s Cradle, a nonprofit, no-kill animal rescue organization located in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

Rowdy, then a playful 10 week old kitten, was rescued from the pound in April 2013 by the great folks at Cat’s Cradle. Rowdy was suffering from chronic constipation with signs of nerve damage, which can occur due to physical trauma such as being struck by a car. After a successful fundraising drive by Cat’s Cradle, Valley Veterinary Hospital in Harrisonburg performed lifesaving surgery and Rowdy has been under foster care there since.

This week Stephanie Miller, the former foster coordinator at Cat’s Cradle, realized what a great match Rowdy was for her and decided to adopt him for herself. Rowdy is already settling in at his new forever home, making friends with Stephanie’s other pets. (Look how big he has grown!)

Great job by Cat’s Cradle and Valley Veterinary Hospital, and special thanks to Stephanie Miller for making the happy ending to Rowdy’s Tale a happy new beginning in a loving forever home!

    Thanks! Cat’s Cradle does a wonderful job helping hundreds of cats find forever homes, but seeing so many go the extra mile to overcome such adversity is especially heartwarming.
