Make-A-Wish kid reveals out-of-this-world room for foster kittens

Local News

It’s a wish come true.

And, for 15-year old Kira Serisky, it’s better than she ever imagined.

Thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Kira was able to see her dream for an outer space-themed  room for her foster kittens. And a galaxy-cat fairyland is exactly what she got.

Kira suffers from complex connective tissue disease and gets around in a wheelchair.

Her new room not only captures her two passions — outer space and fostering kitten — it’s accessible enough that she can move around freely.

“I can easily reach everything so I don’t have to rely on other people as much in order to care for the kittens,” she said.

Kira’s current foster kitten, Emlyn, loves exploring the new space. Little Em came to Kira with health issues. “When we got here she didn’t purr for a really long time because she was just too sick,” Kira said.

Thanks to some love and TLC, Em has become a playful kitten, with lots of purrs. “Before I know it she’ll be off to the shelter and getting adopted,” said Kira.

And Kira will have a new batch of kittens to enjoy the room of Kira’s dreams, along with permeant residents Arminus the cat and Maple the bunny.
