With a heavy heart, we have to report that Nino died yesterday from advanced kidney disease. His conditions were declining and his bloodwork was not improving, so it became clear it was time for euthanasia. He is no longer in any discomfort and he is surrounded by love. Thank you everyone who followed and supported Nino, the ACC cat who joined the KittyKind family in September 2022. Goodnight sweet boy.
Nino with his loving foster parents, two sisters, Zola and Bronte. Earlier this year, they lost their own beloved kidney cat in China where they'd been unable to visit for the past three years because of pandemic restrictions. They took one look at Nino's photo on social media and jumped right in, giving him love and luxury every day for a beautiful final chapter.
On every step of Nino's journey— from beloved pet whose owner died last year, to the @nycacc where volunteers repeatedly posted him as "staff favorite”, to his release from the ACC initiated by Lindsay of @partnershipforshelteranimals , to KittyKind, and then to his loving foster parents: Robert, Pauline, Annmarie, Zola and Bronte— Nino was loved. Thank you.

Recently, the Petco Love Corporation awarded KittyKind a $7,000 grant. Tully and Buster celebrated the award at the KittyKind adoption center. Graduates of foster care themselves, they encourage all who can to foster other fur babies. June is Foster a Shelter Pet Month, but any month is good with them.
Thank you Petco Love Corporation, as well as KittyKind volunteers and supporters.http://www.facebook.com/petcolove
