MICHIGAN – She is the furry kitten who stole our hearts the other day!
After “Lucky Seven” crashed a morning live shot featuring WXYZ reporter Nima Shaffe, she is now in the very loving hands of workers at the Humane Society of Huron Valley.
“She was examined by a veterinarian, vaccinated, treated for worms and parasites,” Tanya Hilgendorf stated.
Tanya is the president and chief executive officer over at the Humane Society of Huron Valley.
“She is now headed to foster care where she will get some extra TLC while she grows a little more. Then she will be spayed, given a microchip ID, and made available to be adopted by a loving family,” she explained.
Including the kitten in the morning’s newscast started as the idea of WXYZ-TV photojournalist Andy Zaremba and Executive Producer Chris Pantaleo. The video quickly turned into a viral frenzy!
“I want to Thank you, Nima, and Channel 7 Action News for your compassion,” Hilgendorf stated. “Saving homeless animals takes a little from everyone. Starting with someone noticing an animal in need and then taking action.”
Hilgendorf says they are in the midst of what they call “kitten season” and Lucky Seven is just one of over a thousand they rescue and will treat and find homes for this season.
As tiny as she is, Hilgendorf says somehow she kept herself safe long enough to be rescued.
The Humane Society of Huron Valley is not affiliated with any other Humane Society.
