This is the story of Celine & Calypso

Celine & Calypso

As much as we try to discourage people abandoning animals at our shelters as there is no guarantee they will be found in time for rescue, invariably someone will do it anyway. This time, in September 2013, a litter of four tiny kittens was left in a cardboard box on our cat shelter porch. The babies were so little they had to be bottle-fed so a volunteer took them home with her to provide 'round the clock care. A member of Bond County Humane Society was moved by their story and their picture and made a donation, sponsoring the adorable kittens. Fortunately all four survived to adoptable age and were spayed and neutered and ready to meet new families in November. The two females, Celine (the calico, pictured far right) and Calypso (the tortoiseshell, pictured far left), were adopted together to a home in a neighboring Illinois county.

Around their first birthday, their furever mom sent us this great note:


I thought you might like a picture of the 2 kittens we adopted in November. Their names are now Cinnamon and Saffron (Saffy, but should be Sassy!) aka the Stinker Sisters. They are both doing well. Cinnamon, formerly Celine, is the biggest and probably weighs around 12 pounds now. Saffron is about half her size.

This is a picture of them on the cat tree in front of the double glass doors.
