Well, I wish it was as simple as that!
Sox originally paired up with a somewhat disabled blue check feral, and they had one quite good looking baby. That Dad, the feral, dumped Sox for their baby when the baby got to be about six months old. I felt sorry for Sox and for the WOE who was alone and put them together. Months later we have Pixie and Popcorn on the scene. There are times when nothing seems simple around here!
Sox was a special rescue also from the Hesperia area. I was able to get our member, Risingstarfans, to take her in from the lady who found her. Risingstarfans nursed Sox back to health, and I eventually made the trip to Hesperia to get Sox and bring her home.
Much, much later, I got a call about some pigeons (also in Hesperia) that had been owned by an animal rescuer who had passed away. She had lots of dogs, cats, barnyard animals, parrots, and three pigeons. Lots of rescue groups "came to the rescue" and took all the birds and animals except for the three pigeons .. thus another trip to Hesperia to get the pigeons and a little rabbit that had gotten left behind.
The stories of both of the Hesperia situations are here somewhere ..
