Companions in Waiting introduces Wynken, Blynken, and Nod

Wynken, now named Esmie, and Blynken, now called Bow, have been adopted together. Nod's adoption with another kitten is pending!

Some rescues are more dramatic than others. Wynken (pictured below) was being carried off by a crow when someone intervened! They brought her and her siblings to Companions in Waiting. We've updated our photo blog with a smorgasbord of photos of these kittens at four weeks old: see the Wynken, Blynken, and Nod photo album.

If you'd like to help save kittens like these, please consider becoming a foster home for Companions in Waiting. If you can't foster, your donations can help us provide food, medical care, and more for Wynken and others like her.
