Snow White (calico), Happy (white and orange) and Grumpy (orange tabby, not pictured) were rescued from Disneyland. The three 10-week-old kittens were trapped by their rescuer/caregiver Cindy Dote, and two other siblings avoided the traps and are still there.
The siblings left behind will be trapped, neutered and released back to the park to live their lives. Sadly, there is just a small window of time that a feral (wild untouchable) kitten can be tamed to make a great pet for the general public.
Of the rescued kittens, who are now available for adoption, Snow White is the most inquisitive, and Happy is a purr machine. Grumpy is still a bit stiff when picked up, but he is warming up quickly with regular feeding.
As a point of information, Disneyland has more than 200 feral cats that roam the grounds and the perimeter of the park.
We are closed for the holidays. This weekend from noon to 4 p.m. at Fashion Island will be the last pet adoption event until Jan. 5. Snow White, Happy and Grumpy will not be on view this weekend, but they can be seen at the private caregivers' homes or at the January adoption event. Please call (949) 759-3646 for information.
