A Danbury woman who rescued a family of cats left for dead on the side of road is asking why someone would abandon them.
Kayla Trolle says a friend saw kittens in the middle of Starrs Plain Road in Danbury two weeks ago.
"They're totally disoriented and helpless. They're babies," said Trolle.
Trolle says the next day, she went to look in the swampy thick brush.
She says she found a kitten that was anemic and infested with fleas, but veterinarians said it was too late.
"I got a call that she had passed, and I just sat there in shock and felt like a failure that I couldn't save her," said Trolle.
Over the next couple of days, Trolle found two more kittens that did survive.
Fairose just turned 9 weeks old, and like the other cats was infested with fleas and ticks.
She named the other one Faith because the entire community had faith in this rescue.
"People from Ridgefield, Redding, Danbury, Bethel," said Trolle.
Trolle says she can't understand who left these cats on the side of road.
"Only a monster would dump defenseless kittens totally helpless, no food, no water, no way of surviving," said Trolle.
A day or so after she found the kittens, the mother cat was found.
She's only about 1 ½ years old.
The mother cat is said to have ulcers all over her mouth and all her teeth have to come out.
Trolle set up a GoFundMe to pay for medical and food expenses for the cats and others that she may find.
Trolle is an animal rescue volunteer for several organizations, all while battling serious health issues.
"I've had two heart transplants. I was born with a rare form of cardiomyopathy, so I've been sick since I was born," said Trolle.
