BETH LIES AGAIN !!! Conflicting Stories on The Blind Cat.
Thought I remembered a different version of the story Beth told about Kitna (now named Bella), the blind cat. This week she said the cat was pregnant when NSAL took her in, the kittens were born at the shelter, and she started "fostering" them when the kittens were only a day or two old. NOT TRUE. She also said the cat was abused and suggested that was the cause of her blindness, which also isn't true. Beth also mentioned something about a kitten who had to have oxygen and died before she got it (and how distraught she was over it) but I don't recall if it was supposed to have been one of Kitna's kittens. If so, that was a lie too because there were only 4 kittens all along. Beth and Howard can't tell the truth about ANYTHING, they have to embellish and over-dramatize even the simplest and most insignificant details of every story. Here's the NSAL version:
Help Blind Cat and Her Four Kittens
North Shore Animal League America recently rescued blind Kitna and her four tiny kittens from uncertain futures at an overcrowded municipal shelter.
Kitna and her kittens were originally discovered in a junkyard, with the devoted mother nursing her newborns. A Good Samaritan brought the family to a shelter.
Sadly, Kitna is blind, and that put the sweet cat in grave danger of being destroyed, and it also meant her kittens’ future was uncertain. Overcrowded municipal shelters often lack the resources to care for all the animals who enter their doors, let alone those suffering from disease or disabilities.
When they arrived at Animal League America, our veterinary team determined that Kitna suffers from microphthalmia, a congenital disease characterized by a small or absent small eye. Both of Kitna’s eyes are affected, which means she is blind. It is also possible that the severity of her condition was compounded by trauma, but we will never know for sure.
Won’t you please help?
She is not apparently in any pain at this time, but it is possible that enucleation (or removal) of her eyes may be necessary in the future.
Our medical and nursery teams have been tenderly caring for Kitna and her babies, and they are deeply moved by the mother’s devotion to her young ones. Despite her disability, she is a very loving and attentive mom, and the kittens are flourishing. We are diligently working to help Kitna stay strong.
Once the kittens are weaned and Kitna is ready, we will keep our life-saving promise to help them all find loving homes.
Here's what's posted on HowardStern.com (and what Beth said on Monday):
There are 4 of "Kitna's" kittens available. Kitna was a blind cat who was saved from a kill shelter when she was pregnant with 4 babies. You can read her story on North Shore Animal League.org
If you'd like a kitten, please make sure to apply. Beth and the North Shore Animal League will review each one and find the best family for the foster kitties.
Kitna's Kittens include Molly & Jimmy and Zoey & Cookie.
