Jackpot, Kitten Rescues Inspiration / CatCon Limited Edition 5x7 Print by Ricky De Los Angeles
Jackpot is the kitten who started it all when our founder, Sue Romaine, stopped a man with a kitten in a paper bag on his way into the shelter. She said "give me that kitten" and named her Jackpot, since she had hit the jackpot, and the rest is history!
