Seattle Area Feline Rescue (SAFe Rescue) announced that the inspiring story of Courage, a cat who came to the Rescue in 2018 after an unknown attacker cut off her ears and tail, will be featured this Sunday, February 2, 2020 on the Hallmark Channel’s Kitten Bowl VII.

Courage used to live outdoors in Eastern Washington on the property of a senior gentleman, until one day she disappeared. A few days later, Courage reappeared, but her caretaker saw that she was bleeding: someone had cut off her ears and tail.

He never found out who hurt her, and he treated her injuries as best he could. Eventually the wounds closed, and Courage carried on. As time passed, Courage’s elderly guardian was no longer able to care for the cats on his property. Courage came to SAFe Rescue for a second chance. She was ill with a respiratory infection and various other health conditions, and she needed medical treatment and multiple surgeries to recover.

After she was strong enough to find a home, Courage was adopted by a Seattle family. (Her adopter posts regular updates about her happy new life on Courage’s Instagram account

Courage’s journey to a happy home has been documented by the Hallmark Channel and will be aired as a pre-recorded feature during the Kitten Bowl broadcast.

“Courage’s transformation from abused to loved is truly an inspiration; Courage shows us that the kindness of our community is much stronger than one person’s cruelty,” said Shelley Lawson, Development and Communications Director at SAFe Rescue and foster mom to Courage during her recovery.

Seattle Area Feline Rescue is a nonprofit organization that takes in homeless felines from the Puget Sound region and beyond and finds them loving families. Seattle Area Feline Rescue opened its Shoreline Adoption Center in 2014 and has since grown to be one of the largest feline-specific rescues in the country. Last year, SAFe Rescue found homes for 2,018 cats and kittens.
