Justice – To adopt this little guy, visit StrayCatAlliance.org and fill-out an adoption application

Justice A few weeks ago, the Courier received a call from a distraught resident. A pair of tiny baby kittens had been crying for more than 24 hours, stuck under the hood of a vehicle in the building’s garage. The vehicle owner was unavailable to aid the kittens, and efforts to lure them out of the engine boot were unsuccessful. With a little help from the Beverly Hills Police Department and roadside assistance to unlock the vehicle and pop the hood, one kitten was retrieved from the vehicle. The other kitten has not been found. Covered in fleas, starving, scared and dehydrated, the Stray Cat Alliance took the feral feline in. In the ensuing weeks, this 9-week old boy has become socialized and ready for adoption. At the Courier, we feel he should be named Justice, after the law enforcement personnel who assisted in his rescue. To adopt this little guy, visit StrayCatAlliance.org and fill-out an adoption application, or email Adoptions@StrayCatAlliance.org for more information. 5:37 pm Read More
