Kitten found today

Kitten found black and white about 1 month old on Western near Carmen. Miracle did not get hit by cars. Please respond to this, if you are missing

  • Miracle is indeed a doll and is very lucky to have such a great new owner to love and take care of .

    I will love watching her mature into a beautiful Cat.

  • Preeti Ravenswood Superstar since 2003

    Miracle is beautiful! It took months for my resident cats to adjust to my rescue kitty. They never fought, just some hissing and then running away. It took time but they are pals now. Introduce Miracle slowly. Thank you for giving her a forever home!
