Precious kittens rescued from a country road; homes found for all of them

Ben and Ann Fagan have been colleagues of mine at the English Montreal School Board. Ben is the principal of the High School of Montreal Adult Education Centre in the Plateau while Ann, a librarian, recently retired as the head of the EMSB Book Processing Centre at the former Wagar High School in Côte Saint-Luc.

Over Labour Day Weekend, the Fagans were  in the Laurentians on a little back road when they found seven very young kittens in the middle of the street.  "They seemed to be abandoned because there were no houses around at all," Ann says. "We rounded them up and brought them home. What else could we do?"

I went to visit the kittens. They no more than a few months old. How someone could just toss them away like yesterday's trash is hard to imagine. They were beyond adorable, sociable and busy using the litter boxes the Fagans put out. Ann set out to find find homes for them. 

The CSL Cats Committee arranged for Ann to take them to the Côte Saint-Luc Hospital for Animals to be examined. Because two had already been adopted, Ann showed up with five. Dr. Kent spent two hours with the little critters, de-worming them and providing vaccinations. Soon after, two more were adopted.

Ann did a magnificent job and within the week she did indeed find homes for all seven of them.

Bravo! Now how do we sign her up for our committee?
