I am running the 2015 LA Marathon (26.2 miles!) as a member of Team Kitten Rescue to raise money for Kitten Rescue. I am running specifically for Whisper, whose story inspires me to keep going mile after mile.
A good samaritan contacted Kitten Rescue about Whisper, whose tail had been ripped off. Whisper was in a great deal of pain and an infection had begun. Kitten Rescue volunteer Eden Salisbury sprang into action and got Whisper to the emergency vet whose expenses were paid for by Kitten Rescue. Subsequently, Whisper needed a great deal of medical care and surgery. Kitten Rescue paid for all of it and Eden provided a foster home and daily nursing, including saline baths.
Because of Kitten Rescue, Whisper will be available for adoption soon and will live a full and happy life, sans tail - which she doesn't seem to miss! The thought of what could have happened to Whisper had Kitten Rescue not been available and financially able to intervene breaks my heart. Please donate to my marathon fund so that kitties like Whisper can be saved. The video here was filmed at Whisper's foster home. She will be available for adoption soon! Let me know if you are interested in adopting her!
