The owners and operators of the Good Karma Farmette in Jackson did a good deed recently when they rescued three kittens in neighboring Howell.
Brianne Moreski, 27, and Brandon Moreski, 29, own and operate Good Karma Farmette.
Brianne said that on the morning of Sept. 2, she saw a post on Facebook about a kitten that had been found on a road in Howell.
“We responded after (no other organizations responded). We know upper respiratory issues in such young kittens can be touch and go and life-threatening, so we picked up kitten No. 1, who we named Stinky Pete, and headed straight to the vet,” Moreski said.
“We then got a message from a woman … who found kittens the night before in the rain, crying in her backyard. We told her to drop them off to us because that’s what we do. …
“We found out those kittens were only streets away from where the first kitten was found, the same age and with the same upper respiratory issues, so it’s safe to assume they are all part of the same litter,” Moreski said.
“Dr. Neil Bloom of Central Monmouth Animal Hospital told us to come in right away” with kitten No. 1, she said.
Later, the other two kittens were dropped off at the farmette.
Now, “all three kittens, which had eye infections, are safe and sound with full bellies and fully medicated here at the farmette. Once they are cleared by Dr. Bloom, up to date on their shots and neutered/spayed, they will be up for adoption to good homes only, with a contract,” Moreski said.
Good Karma Farmette offers yoga classes, reiki, horseback riding and a petting zoo. Beginning riders are welcome.
“We also take in animals in need, but we are not a registered rescue. We do it out of passion. We have rescued goats, chickens, ducks, horses, dogs, kittens and cats.
“Anything and everything that needs rehabilitation or otherwise has no home comes here, is socialized, gets healthy, and if it doesn’t stay here permanently, it goes to approved adopters only on a contract,” Moreski said.
She said most of what the farmette does is geared toward horses and is directed by Brielle Roman. Finding homes for horses is also a priority for Good Karma Farmette.
“We are currently working to promote the standardbred breed with Brielle Roman (Team Trot Trot) by coordinating adoptions … in the hope of finding forever homes. … We currently have five horses in this program with home interests and one horse that was just adopted. The program is growing, with more horses being taken in every week,” Moreski said.
