WESTPORT, Conn. – If you or someone you know is looking to adopt a kitten this holiday season, a female kitten named Malloy found in Westport may be a perfect fit.
A library patron found Malloy outside the Westport Library last week. Registering no body temperature, she was taken to Schulof Animal Hospital by Westport Animal Control Officer Joe Saponare and treated for multiple cuts. Westport Animal Shelter Associates is covering the cost of Malloy’s veterinary bill, WASA President Julie Loparo said.
“It was touch and go for a while, but she has rebounded well and is getting stronger every day,” Loparo said in an email.
Malloy is recuperating at the animal hospital, but WASA is looking to find her a permanent home. She is believed to be 2 to 3 months old and is described as a loving, cuddly kitten that enjoys being held.
“[She] has quickly become the sweetheart of the veterinary practice,” Loparo said.
Anyone interested in adopting Malloy or contributing to her veterinary care can contact Loparo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Malloy was named after Kathleen Malloy, a staff member at the library who helped the patron who found the kitten.
