In the FURR rescue facility there is a ‘Miracle Wall’ with pictures of kitties who have survived death-defying ordeals. When you read their stories below from 2015-2016 as only Terry can tell them you will understand why they have this very special designation even among all of FURR’s amazing survival and rehabilitation stories.
These stories are also a powerful testament to FURR’s many years of successfully rehabilitating feral kitties, especially the ones like these few who most desperately need critical care, attention and lots of love.
