Tiny Patient Recovers in Foster Care In November, a tiny six-week-old kitten with a severely broken leg was found by an Animal Control Officer and brought to the Shelter for surgery. After caring for her injury, we placed the kitten in a foster home that was happy to take special care of her. Seven weeks later, her leg finally healed. Princess Lady Face (as she is now known) was adopted into a loving home.
