This is the story of Tater

Tater with BCHS Volunteer

Tater and his litter mates, Butterscotch, Kiwi and Ritz, were abandoned when they were about 3 weeks old and rescued by Bond County Humane Society volunteers. BCHS bottle fed the kittens until they could eat on their own and then they were ready to visit the vet for neuter surgery, microchips and all their early kitten vaccinations. Tater was 7 months old when he met the family he was destined to go live with furever.

Tater's adoptive Mom wrote this electronic letter update for BCHS in December 2012:

“Hello BCHS,

We adopted Tater last Sunday and he has already made himself right at home. For the first day he hid under my bed and he would come to the edge of the bed and let us pet him and eat his food. He is doing great and as promised I have enclosed some pictures of the newest member of our family. My daughter was so excited when she got home that she was in search for words. All she could say was: 'Thank you, Mommy, thank you!!!'

I want to tell you all thank you because this has been something that I have been debating for a long time, and had I not walked in there that day I probably would have kept putting it off. You all have really placed us with a wonderful first pet and we could not be happier.

Thanks Again

Jennifer, Brooklynn, A.J., and Tater!!!!!
