Olive and her precious six

A pregnant mama cat surrendered to Red Lake Rosie's Rescue. She was two years old, tiny and very sweet, but we knew by her big lumpy belly that she was ready to give birth.

Feline Rescue agreed to take her into foster care even though it is the peak of the summer kitten season. 

She arrived on a transport from RLRR on Monday July 20 and was to her foster caregiver who had a lovely little room all ready for her. She walked confidently out of the carrier to check out the room and quickly settled into the window to breathe the fresh air. The evening of the next day she had the kittens.

It was a long, exhausting delivery of six kittens for the little mama. The foster caregiver helped by cutting the cords to release the last two kittens from their placentas, so they could crawl over to mom to nurse. She rested and let them nurse and now she is super mom! All the kittens are clean and active and growing quickly.

Mama Olive loves attention for herself and her foster caregiver is happy to oblige. It's hard to believe that six kittens were stored in this tiny girl! We're all so happy this is her last litter.

Chipmunks Alvie & Nelson's (aka Chip) 8th Birthday

Another year has gone by and my Feline Rescue guy is doing great! With the help of you and several of your associates at Feline Rescue, Nelson is thriving and happy.

He has grown into quite the snuggle bug and loves to spend his evening cuddled up next to me on the couch where he purrs like a small engine.

He also likes to take naps with me whenever I can grab one.

Nelson’s sister Alvie is doing great at Calhoun Pet Store. She is so much like Nelson it’s scary. If I look at her face, it’s like seeing Nelson’s twin.

I’ve recently had the pleasure of meeting a couple of the volunteers for Feline Rescue at one of the Woody’s deli locations where Feline Rescue has cats available for adoption. Everyone with your organization continues to amaze me with the caring and compassion shown to our feline friends.

Thank you for all you do and thanks for all Feline Rescue continues to do for our community and our feline friends.

We LOVE receiving updates on our cats!

Sala and her sisters

Kitten sisters Goldy, Lindy, and Laurel were rescued during the brutally cold winter of 2013-2014. They had found shelter under a shed and were lured out and live-trapped one at a time. After spending some time in a foster home, the girls were adopted. Here is another great update from Rosemary, who adopted all three of the sisters, now called Priere, Pujah, and Sala:

Everyone is doing fine. After reading a Feline Rescue newsletter I decided something about Sala and why I'm so glad she got adopted with her sisters. Sala remains afraid of many things but she is happy as she can be in spite of everything. Although she won't approach me directly she will hang out in the same room with me sometimes... I think she is as happy and secure as she would ever be because she is with her sisters.

This past year I've done what I could to socialize her and I wondered what else I could do, but I'm realizing now this is the way it's going to be. She'll be with her sisters, and that's the best outcome for her, and I'll do my best to give her a secure loving environment...

In spite of her past trauma and ongoing fears, I do believe she is where she belongs. And I will always thank you for the joy I receive everyday...

Help! It's Kitten Season Once Again

Same time each year Feline Rescue is inundated with orphaned kittens, pregnant cats and moms with babies.  Kittens are cute, innocent and happy.  They are so much fun. We love to view photos and videos of their silly antics, but unfortunately there are too many of them being born to homeless or abandoned cats.

Our foster homes are already filling up and Kitten Season has just begun.  The season began with momma cats coming in with their newborn babies and now the urgent pleas from local animal control facilities as orphaned kittens some too young to eat on their own are in need of rescue.

Yesterday a VERY pregnant momma cat was left at our shelter and two six week old kittens were rescued from an animal control facility while just days before a two week old kitten and a four week old kitten were quickly taken into our care from another animal control facility.

So how can you help?  Not everyone is able to open their home to provide foster care for cats and kittens but Feline Rescue is always in need of supplies and funds to pay for medical care.  Check out our Kitten Supply Wish List or donate to our foster program.

For more information about our foster program read our Foster Program Frequently Asked Questions and if interested in becoming a foster caregiver please fill out our online Foster Volunteer Application.

Sister Mama cats & kittens journey to Feline Rescue

On March 29, WE R Furr Feline Rescue, on the White Earth Reservation, posted this note with a video on their Facebook page:
Picked up this brood tonight. These are 2 sister cats that each had 5 kittens a week apart. One group is a week old & the other group is 2 weeks old. The moms take turns feeding the kittens. They will be going to a foster home tomorrow. Then when the kittens are old enough, everyone will be spayed/neutered, shots etc. & be adopted out to good homes. With this addition to the rescue tonight, we are at our highest number so far.

I wasn't surprised when I saw that Red Lake Rosie's Rescue stepped up to help find placement for this large group. Both Pet Haven and Feline Rescue offered to take them. Then we got word from White Earth that a group of six small orphaned kittens had been turned in to them. So the Sister Mamas traveled from White Earth to Red Lake to Pet Haven just briefly and then to their foster home with Feline Rescue. The six orphans are headed to Pet Haven.
