DENVER -- Two little kittens, lost their mittens and one lost its tail. The kittens were found in the cold in Castle Rock, and taken to the Dumb Friends League field office there. Since then the pair have been living in foster care and now that they are up to weight, they are looking for… no, not their mittens, rather a new home.

“They are the neatest little special needs kittens,” said Megan Rees. “We had so much interest from around the world for our frozen kitty—Elsa—last month, we hope some who wanted her, will also be interested in these two kittens, Gerda and Kia. The pair were only five days old when found shivering in some bushes, cold and almost frozen.”

That was two months ago.

Since that time, the kittens have been in foster care being bottle-fed and nursed back to health.

Kai, the male, lost two of his paws due to the hypothermia he suffered. He zooms around all over the place, anyway. But he will need some ongoing care as he grows older.

The pair can be adopted solo, but together, what a Christmas treat they would be for the right cat-loving family!
