From his family:
I feel I have lost the best companion of my life, but in looking back I treated every day with him as a gift and loved doing things for him and with him. Thank you again for letting us adopt him and giving us five wonderful years with him. Right now though the pain and loss is unbearable.
A few months ago I made this web site of his pictures and videos. You can see how happy he was,
Thank you again.

A couple weeks later, my foster mom introduced me to Claude and Pumpkin. My foster mom told me that we had to teach Pumpkin and Claude what it’s like to have lots of attention and love. So we played and snuggled a lot.
My foster mom said that we had to pay particular attention to Claude, because he was really scared. She said that we just had to give Claude some time. Claude seems to really look up to me, so I decided to show him exactly how a cat should behave. For instance, I always crawl onto my foster mom’s lap. And it’s really important to purr as much as possible.
Before we knew it, Claude was getting braver and braver. These days, he will come up to my foster mom for just a second, and then run away. But he always stays close by. We are very proud of him.
And Pumpkin is such a handsome boy – sometimes I’m a little jealous of his beautiful, dark-orange fur. Pumpkin really likes me, too – he always wants to lie next to me. But I don’t mind all the attention, because I have really grown to love Pumpkin and Claude.
I can’t imagine my life without Pumpkin and Claude. I know that it might sound like three cats is a lot, but we really don’t take up that much space – oftentimes, we sleep together on one chair. My foster mom loves having us in her home, but I don’t think her cat, Sunny, feels the same way. We can’t wait to find our forever home – together.
We hope that you will open your heart and home to us.
Benjamin's wish shared by his foster caregiver, Stacy.

Still, there’s no question that some cats find their forever homes much more quickly than others. At the
Tomasita wants to be your best friend but has trouble telling you with all these other cats in the room. She is anxious around other cats and will be able to relax once she has a home and people to call her own. Tomasita has a lively, outgoing personality.

And...once again...he has to be the sweetest cat I've ever met. He's settled into his routine and sleeps on my head every night.
I hope all is well with your other fosters and know that your Harry will spoiled rotten and much loved.
I also attached a photo of Harry relaxing in his new favorite spot.

Betty Boop spent about a week and a half at my house getting lots of TLC to get over her cold. She's all better and has now joined some other singleton kittens (Pippi, Twilight & Christopher Robin) so she has playmates just like a kitten should :) Apparently, many people thought her original picture made her look bigger than she really was so I just wanted to add that when she was brought to Feline Rescue she was only 1.36 pounds! She's still a little sprite but has put on some much needed weight and is happy and healthy as can be!

All black except for a white spot on her chest and belly, Winston was quiet until she saw the one she wanted to go home with. Then she talked and talked. When the volunteer opened her kennel and played with and petted her, the year-old cat was so happy. When the human stopped petting, Winston nipped at her hand.
Winston reads people very well and she knew that this would not drive her chosen person away. She somehow knew that this woman had recently lost a black cat to kidney disease and that black cat would nip at her when she stopped petting him. It was a clever thing for Winston to do, because now the human thought, “Awww, she reminds me of Sebastian”. Winston was disappointed when the kennel was shut tight and the volunteer went away, but she held out hope for the next time her new mom would come to visit.
This particular human was not planning on getting any more cats. She had two at home and they were happy together. But she kept thinking of Winston and assumed that the cute young girl would be adopted quickly. The next time she went to the shelter, she thought, “if she’s still there, I will think about adopting her”. But when she arrived, the cage that was Winston’s was empty.
Disappointed and relieved at the same time because now she did not have to make a decision, she asked about Winston’s new family. “Oh, she’s just in the medical room. She’s got ear mites”, another volunteer said. “Surely by the next week, Winston will have found her forever home”, thought Winston’s mom-to-be.
When she came back the next week, Winston was waiting for her. Now she had no excuses, no reasons not to take her next black cat home. When she opened the carrier, Winston walked right in and waited patiently to embark on her new life.
Once home, the two resident cats were a little concerned and avoided their new sister for a few days but soon all three were having wrestling matches that traveled from living room to bedroom and back.
Her new mom asked her what her name was, really, because Winston somehow did not quite fit. “I’m Cleopatra!” said the shelter cat formerly known as Winston.
That was in the fall of 2001. Today, Cleopatra rules a healthy pack of cats and a couple of dogs, too. Her supervisory duties include scheduling naps on the overstuffed yellow chair and letting mom know when it is time to eat. It’s hard work organizing a household, so Cleo takes advantage of naptime whenever she can.

When Lola was rescued a few years ago, she was injured and starving. She has lived at Feline Rescue for years now, and it’s hard to say why she’s been overlooked by adopters for so long. Lola would LOVE to have a home!
Lola is friendly and sweet and loves attention. Sleeping in the sun is one of her favorite pastimes, but Lola also likes to play. She recently lost a lot of weight (thanks her diet of canned food) and feels great. Running and pouncing are more fun than ever now!
Lola tolerates most cats but is a little picky when it comes to choosing her feline friends. She gets along great with her roommate
Lola's friend Milo
If you’re looking for a mature, dependable, all-around wonderful cat, Lola is perfect for the part. She will be waiting in the wings (or the sunny windowsill in the front room), hoping that you’ll soon make it past whichever too-cute, flighty young cat greeted you at the shelter door, to give lovely, laid-back Lola the chance instead.
If you are interested in learning more about Lola, please stop by the Feline Rescue Adoption Center or call 651-642-5900, ext.3.
