Meet Mustachio


Sep 23, 2012 - Update from Mustachio and Abby's new family:-) "The kittens are both doing very well. I love them both to bits and they have been accepted nicely by my other four legged family members...both the other cat and my dog clean them and sleep with them.

They are booked for their surgeries on the 26th.Thanks so much for checking in and I'm glad that CRN does this kind of follow-up to ensure that the kitties get what they need!! I'll be sure to let you know how they both do with surgery.

July 10, 2012 - Update from Mustachio's new family:-)"Abby and Mustachio are doing really well and have settled in quite nicely. I've included pictures of them in their new forever home. They are a wonderful addition to my family and I couldn't be happier. Thanks to CRN for everything!!"

Jun 29, 2012 - Good news for little Mustachio. When his sister Abby's adopter went to pick her up she decided to take Mustachio too. These two little siblings will be sharing their new home with another cat and a dog. Good luck to all.

Here is Mustachio's story:-) Meet Mustachio, a little black and white DSH with an adorable little black mustache. Mustachio is one of Eggo's four kittens born April 27, 2012.

Mustachio shares his foster home with his three siblings plus a little orphaned kitten named Neo. Neo was found abandoned when she was only one day old.

Three of Eggo's kittens have already been spoken for but Mustachio is still available as is Neo and it would be wonderful if they could be adopted together. They will be available for adoption in July but you can visit them now if you are interested.

NOTE: Because a young kitten needs feline companionship, it is the policy of Cat Rescue Network that kittens 6 months or younger be adopted out in pairs unless there is another kitten or young cat already in the home.

HERE IS EGGO'S STORY:-) This is Eggo, a beautiful little black and white domestic shorthair. Her estimated date of birth is August 15, 2011. She was pregnant when trapped by a person in the country who was trying to trap another cat at the time The person did not even know Eggo was around. She went into a temporary home with large dogs who were not cat-friendly, and Eggo spent sometime living in isolation and fear. The person really liked the little cat but knew this was no place for a cat and her kittens. She contacted Cat rescue Network. A couple of weeks after being in foster care, on April 27, 2012, Eggo gave birth to four adorable little kittens.

Six days after giving birth to her own four kittens, Eggo adopted another little orphaned kitten. A tiny tabby, smaller than her kittens when they were born, umbilical cord still attached, found alone on the floor of a barn. The person who found it had to leave for work so left it on a heating disk and blanket all day, hoping the mother would return or that it would remain safe and alive until after her shift. . Miraculously it was still alive when she got home and she immediately arranged to meet Eggo's foster mother and bring the kitten to Eggo. It was a long ride home with this little dehydrated and weak two inch newborn kitten. The foster mother did not know whether Eggo would accept it and, although she was willing to try to bottle feed it, it's chances of survival were not good unless Eggo took over.

As soon as Eggo heard the kitten she ran up to it and and immediately lay down to nurse and lick it. The kitten was almost too weak to nurse but after a minute of encouragement by Eggo , it latched on and then would not let go for 10 minutes. It will be touch and go but Eggo and her foster parents will do everything they can to give this little one a fighting chance for survival. Just a kitten herself and with four of her own new babies, little Eggo immediately accepted this tiny orphan kitten and made it her own. That's just the sort of kitty Eggo is.

It is obvious that Eggo is a very loving and trusting cat. Even while in labour she would curl up on her foster parents laps and purr. She is a very proud mother to her four plus one kittens and loves to gather them up and ‘hug’ them. Always looking for a cuddle and a belly rub, she seeks attention from all. She is not scared by loud noises and has no problem with children.

Eggo's foster mum says she is a quiet kitten that would make a great pet for all ages. She is gentle and has never shown any signs of any aggression. While playful Eggo is also reserved but opens up to the right people, she just needs to be shown the love she deserves.

Eggo is still nursing and will be available for adoption when her kittens are weaned, which should be around mid July, but you can visit her now.

Little Eggo had a rough start and would not have survived for long had she not been so hungry that she went after the food in the trap. She is now now a beautiful little girl who loves being safe and warm inside with her babies. If you think you can give this brave little mother the love and attention she deserves, please contact CRN.
