Pookie's Teeny Tiny Babies

Pookie was rescued through Feline Rescue's Outreach program. She safely gave birth to 1 gray and 3 black kittens in a foster home October 19. On October 21 a two day old, orange tabby kitten was dropped off at the Feline Rescue Adoption Center. The baby was cold, thin and weak so volunteers immediately tried warming and feeding the kitten. Within hours Pookie's foster caregiver, a teacher who fortunately had the day off, was able to pick up the orphan. Pookie took one look at the new baby and started cleaning and caring for him.

Another happy beginning thanks to all the volunteers involved: the outreach volunteers, the shelter volunteers, and Pookie's foster volunteers.

Injured Cat Rescued from Dumpster

Update: Cody has a foster home!

Feline Rescue volunteers have been working in a trailer park to make life better for the large number of stray cats living in and around the dumpsters. Outreach volunteers have been providing food for the cats and kittens and trapping cats to spay and neuter and administer needed vaccines and medication. Life in the dumpsters is dangerous. Cats can get injured from broken glass or other sharp objects, collapsing trash, caught limbs, etc.

This past Wednesday volunteers found a young male cat, who they named Cody. Cody was in pain walking on his wrist. He was taken to the animal hospital Thursday morning. Doctors there determined that he has been suffering from multiple breaks in his right front leg. The injuries are a few months old with breaks in the upper arm bone and the joint, muscle mass in the leg has decreased, bone has calcified on the wrist he was walking on, and the wrist is flexed back now. Cody is only about a year old so he's most likely been suffering with the injury 1/4 of his life.

Cody will need surgery and then a foster home for recovery. If you can help with Cody's care, please contact Joan at 651-705-6264, visit or click the "Donate" button to the right of this post.

Just pick me up already!
Energetic - likes to run, jump, and play with toys.
Nosy - likes to get up in everybody's business
Interesting facial features.
Never a dull moment.
Snuggle buddy - loves to curl up and sleep with you.

Message from Phillip

Phillip found his family and has already sent us a great update.

Dear friends at Feline Rescue,

I am already settling into my new home with the Dixons. I wasn't scared at all. jnmmmmmm (I typed that part myself) There are many interesting things to smell and investigate. There are also two laps ready to be sat upon. I can hear and smell another cat on the other side of a door, but so far we have only been allowed to chirp at each other. Perhaps in a week or two she will be my friend.

With love and furry head-butts,

Brother and Sister Looking for a Forever Family

After their first family moved out of the country and were unable to take them with, Winnie and Piglet Jr. came back to Feline Rescue to find their true forever home. This brother and sister pair are two of Kanga's very sweet babies.

As their current foster caregivers say "they are perfect kitties, friendly, affectionate and very easy to care for". They are past the super energetic kitten phase and are great companions.

If you are interested in adopting two wonderful cats, please contact Joan at 651-705-6264.

Two Gems Settle in Again

In the spring of 2006, I fostered a pregnant mom cat named Paris Hilton and her kittens were called the Gems: two orange, Garnet and Ruby, four white, Smudge (gray spot on head), Pearl, Opal and Sapphire (for his gorgeous blue eyes), and one black, Diamond.

LITTLE GEMSAll found homes that summer, but this spring Garnet and Sapphire who had gone to a home together were reluctantly returned to Feline Rescue following a divorce and move by their owner.

GARNET & SAPPHIRE KITTENSThey were at the shelter for a short time before someone noticed the beautiful pair and adopted them. I just happened to be at the shelter the day they were adopted and was so pleased they were staying together. I can't tell you how happy I was to receive this update on them today.

SAPPHIRE/BEAUGARNET/SOPHIEWay back in April, I was lucky enough to bring home two beautiful, sweet cats from Feline Rescue. Garnet and Sapphire settled right in after the first few weeks, and once we found out it would be okay to change their names, my roommates dubbed them Sophie and Beau. They are happy, healthy, and delightful!

SAPPHIRE/BEAU & GARNET/SOPHIEGARNET/SOPHIE & SAPPHIRE/BEAULittle Sophie loves to curl up and nap at the foot of my bed all day long, and I think she's secretly the boss of Beau even those she's tiny. Beau likes chasing bugs and waking me up for snuggles early in the morning, and sometimes I come home to find him burrowed under my blankets!

SAPPHIRE/BEAU HIDINGI couldn't have asked for two sweeter companions, and I'm so grateful to Feline Rescue for the hard work you do and for helping to bring these wonderful cats into my life. Some photos are attached if you'd like to see what the kitties have been up to since they left the adoption center.

Thanks again, I hope all is well,
