It's been a whirlwind since the #SweetSuperheroes arrived nearly a week ago and we can barely keep up.
TV Anchor/Reporter Heidi Voight, a die-hard cat lover, came to our main foster home to visit the kittens and to share their story with the world. One of our kittens caught her eye; a brown tabby, the tiniest of his group. She asked if her viewers could name him and how could we say no?
Little Maximus, too tired for his big photo shoot.
Since that moment, Heidi has been running a campaign on Facebook to choose a Sweet Superhero name for him. The results are in and the choice was MAXIMUS (though we admit we loved Captain Cannoli or Captain Ameowica!).
Lt Licoric and sister, the Caped Coconut are ready to be adopted! Details will be on our Adopt Page soon!
Heidi and the crew at NBC have been terrific. They're going to keep their viewers updated on how Maximus is doing until his arrival at #ClearTheShelters on August 19 from 10-5pm. We'll be at Hoffman Auto Group's Watertown BMW (YES!!! WE LOVE Bimmers) with Max and crew so we hope you'll stop by.

At Clear the Shelters, or any time, we welcome donations of high protein, no grain canned food or freeze-dried raw food (for a list, see our Amazon Wishlist). We are also in dire need of funds to help provide much-needed care for these adorable kittens. If you can't visit the kittens, please consider a donation towards their care. You can donate HERE AND your donation is Tax-deductible. We're a non-profit 501c3.
Make a Gift HERE of any size so we can use it for Vet care or anything else our kittens need to be happy and healthy. We're a 501c3 Non-profit cat rescue, run 100% by volunteers in Sandy Hook, CT. Your gift goes directly to supporting the cats and kittens in our care.
Secret Agent Pudding is hoping to be on the case...of cat food!
We also just got our first Target Gift Registry! set up! So when you shop for yourself, you can add a few goodies for our kittens!
Our goal is to get at least 30 cases of cat food ASAP. Please be part of our rescue team with a gift to our kittens and join us in saving lives! Thank you!
GET READY! Our 11, wait, only 9 (one just got adopted! and one caught a cold and will be coming here as soon as he feels better) rescue-kittens, the #SweetSuperheroes will be arriving around 8PM EST TONIGHT. MAKE SURE YOU BOOKMARK these links to our LIVE WEB CAMS so you can watch the kittens run, play, wrestle and sleep out of a cage for the first time in far too long.
The Caped Coconut is just one of our many rescue kittens who were going to be put to sleep because their municipal animal control had run out of space. We just couldn't let that happen.
Secret Agent Pudding has an almost twin sister, Secret Agent Parfait. They will both be up for adoption early in August!
We'll be posting photos of all our rescue kitties once they are settled so make sure you come back to see them. They'll all be ready to be adopted in a few weeks! Inquiries just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We're also looking for volunteers to come over for 30-60 minutes to play and snuggle with our kittens! Contact us at the email address above for details.
*NOTE: During certain times of the day the web cams may be turned off for a few minutes to an hour or more so the folks who scoop the litter pans or have snuggle time with the kittens get some privacy.
