12 Saves of Christmas – FieldHaven’s Heartwarming Save #6: Tumble
Each day, we will share one of FieldHaven’s 12 most heartwarming cat saves of 2020. Each happy story was made possible through your generosity!
The young fellow on the left may have a career in stunt work after falling from a speeding car on the freeway! On the right is Joshua, who rescued Tumble.
In June, we received a call from a man about a kitten. He was driving when he saw a kitten come flying out from underneath another car on the highway. The man stopped and scooped the kitten up from the roadway. Surprisingly, the kitten looked OK, but he took him to a veterinarian to be sure. He also decided that he would like to get the kitten neutered, vaccinated, and find the little guy a home. The problem was he had recently been laid off, he had other pets at home, and didn’t have all the funds needed for Tumble’s neuter surgery, so he reached out to FieldHaven for help.
When we called him back, he relayed this entire story and reported that the kitten, whom he had affectionately named Tumble, was happy, social, and miraculously unharmed.
We featured Tumble’s remarkable story on our volunteer page, and another kind gentleman, one of our volunteers, offered to pay for Tumble’s care.
We shared this with the man who found Tumble, and he and his family were elated and very grateful.
Most recently, we received these photos. It appears Tumble has found his home…with his rescuer.
Often our work involves connecting people who care about animals with others who care, too!
