Three orphaned kittens were found on a pathway at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden on July 16 and 17, 2007. "Their eyes weren't open yet, and with no mother in sight, they were brought to me to raise by hand," says Lisa Vallez, animal rescuer from New York.
"Kitten this young need to be bottle fed round the clock for the first couple weeks." Two of the kittens (Fleur and Albert) blossomed while one sadly did not make it. Fleur is now named Annie, living with Lisa's rescue partner Shawn (Annie all grown up). Albert also found a wonderful home with a loving couple (Albert all grown up)
