Tabitha - Put Out with the Trash



This adorable little baby is Tabitha, a 4 month old tortie kitten that was treated so horribly, that it's just unbelievable that she is alive to tell her tale. Tabitha was put out with trash ..... literally, and was moments away from being crushed in the back of a garbage truck. A resident in West Creek, NJ put their trash out for pickup and along with it, put out a milk crate size box with a lid that closed with a latch. A little while later while the family was out in the front yard, they heard some soft meowing coming from the front of the yard.

They looked around to see where the distressed meows were coming from and finally located the source. Someone had drove by and put this little kitten inside the box that was out for the trash, closed the lid and latched it so she had no chance of escape. With the garbage truck in sight, it is pretty safe to say that Tabitha was moments from death, as her little meows probably would not have been heard over the noise of the truck.

Tabitha was quickly brought to safety and then these good people called us at Popcorn Park to come and get the little girl. When our animal control officer brought her in, it only took the scared little kitten a few moments to realize that she was now in a safe place, surrounded by good people that would never let any harm come to her again. It was obvious that Tabitha was someone's pet, as she is unbelievably friendly and affectionate. How that someone could throw her out with the trash is just unfathomable.

Tabitha settled in very quickly and put the whole bad experience out of her mind. She is now focused on getting herself into a wonderful new home and starting fresh. This is one outgoing, lovable little kitten that has no fear. She absolutely loves everyone she meets and is not shy about leaping into your arms so that you'll cuddle her and give her some attention. She is playful and so very sweet, and just loves life. This is one lucky little girl and it seems as if she knows that, and is grateful for every new day. Tabitha is ready for a great home with a family that loves her, and that will never throw her away again.

For more information on Tabitha or the many fabulous felines waiting to start life anew, call Popcorn Park at 609-693-1900 or e-mail us. Tabitha's File# is 22610.

You can also help by sending a donation to help feed the hundreds of cats at our shelters who hope to find a new family.
