Repeat Animal Rescuer Saves “Chicky” and “Waffles” from Garbage Dump!

This is Chicky and Waffles. Towards the end of July, my co-worker found a litter of 5 kittens thrown in a dumpster at my job. These two angels are the only two that survived. I was called by my co-worker and we rushed them to the vet. They were 5 weeks old and weighed only 1.3 pounds and had several health issues. I had to bottle feed waffles for a week and I honestly didn’t think he’d make it. Two weeks prior to this my 14 year old cat joined his brother in heaven. I rescued him and his brother in 2000 after finding them thrown in the woods. The similarity in stories sent the message that I needed to keep these two. They have grown immensely but still won’t allow my husband or I to approach them. They are severely traumatized but I’m sure with time love will heal their hearts.”  Thank you, Melanie! 🙂

About the author

I began this website as a way to showcase that going vegan is easy, cost-effective, delicious, and most importantly, fun. No animal has to suffer or die for a meal. Since the age of four, I have not eaten meat. I learned at a young age that the family puppy shared the same types of emotions as wild animals and farm animals. I never thought that it was okay to exploit them. Twelve years ago, I gave up cheese, not knowing the suffering through which cows had gone. I am dedicated to the vegan lifestyle, animal advocacy, and in furthering the social justice movements for all people, animals, and the planet. I am pleased to announce that since this blog began in 2014, there are many more vegan businesses from restaurants, a fully vegan shopping center, a school that only serves vegan food, and a vegan medical center. Although I have no affiliation with them, I feel that it is noteworthy to say that the movement is growing, and I hope to see the property status of animals one day change to acknowledge them as "persons," not things.
