Kitten AdoptionA kitten named Sally that captured the hearts of an entire community after she was left for dead in the New Hampshire woods now has a new home.

Last month, a woman who was raking her lawn found the kitten in a garbage bag with a plastic tie around her neck. Diane Beausoleil, an office manager at Townsend Veterinary Hospital, where the kitten who has since been named Sally has lived for the past three weeks, said the kitten had been in the bag for about five days before she was rescued.

Beausoleil called one of the animal clinics clients, whose cat had recently died. Sally went home with her new owner on May 11.

In all, Beausoleil said, the animal hospital received between 20 and 25 calls from people interested in adopting Sally. Beausoleil urged people who had an interest in making Sally part of their family to consider adopting another cat.

She also said that anyone who becomes unable to take care of an animal should bring the pet to a shelter or animal hospital.

The staff discovered that Sally is likely closer to 7 months than 5 months old, as they originally suspected. They also learned that Sally has been spayed, and already may have had kittens, Beausoleil said.

How could anyone be so cruel?? I don't understnd the mentality of people like that. Thank God there was a happy ending for Sally. I will always adopt or take in a stray that needs a home.

What a happy story that Sally got a new home and her owners got a new pet!

How is Sally doing now, almost a year after she was rescued? Bless that little kitten, now a grown cat.
