Foxy and Friendly are home for the holidays

From the moment they met, it was clear that Mr. Friendly and little Foxy were meant to be together. He took her under his wing, and Foxy hardly left Friendly's side again.

Here are pictures of Foxy and Friendly- together of course- in their new home. Their new mom reports that "they really are a sweet pair, and we're really happy to welcome them to our home"!

We're glad that they're home for the holidays too!

A Boy Named Schmokey

Schmokey has already found a favorite lap to snuggle in and listen to poetry.

We think he is settling in very well.

Schmokey was a little shy at first, but once we pulled his blanket out and put it on our daughter's lap he crawled right up with her and the way he is sitting in the photo, all nestled, was totally on his own! In the photo they are reading the poem "It's Dark In Here" by Shel Silverstein (which happens to be about someone getting a little too close to a lion). Maybe it was the feline subject that caught his interest, but they sat like that for quite awhile and a number of poems!

We think it's a good fit.

Saami fka Sesame

Another kitty home for the holidays!

Happy to report that Saami (formerly Sesame) has become a very happy and delightful member of our family. We have an 18 year old tabby who is also adjusting quite well, as he wasn't very keen on having to share his home with another cat. We are enjoying seeing Saami's whimsical personality and sense of humor coming out more and more. He continues to become more comfortable each day. We are so glad to have him in our family.

Always Bobbish

He was wise, all-knowing, and kind.
He was The Old Soul.
He walked with Bastet and Anubis.
He has had many lives on Earth.
He will return for more.

He is still Bobbish.
Always Bobbish.

Peace Be with You, Old Soul

Titan is big in size and big on personality too! This gentle guy is a cuddler and a lap-cat.

Titan also loves to play. He likes to hang out in his crinkle tunnel... and he sure does fill it up!

Titan currently resides at the Feline Rescue Adoption Center. His roommates and playmates were recently adopted. Now he's ready to find his home too!

Titan gets along well with other young cats with a slow introduction. He's a big guy, but he's gentle.

What's not to love about a big, beautiful tabby like Titan!

To meet Titan, stop by the Feline Rescue Adoption Center or call 651-642-5900, ext.3.

Mother and son: a perfect pair of playmates

Agatha and Arthur were abandoned near the Feline Rescue Adoption Center. Agatha was scared off, but luckily she hunkered down and later returned to be reunited with her son, Arthur. These two make a fine pair!

and Arthur are both full of energy and love to play. They have long, sleek bodies and are very athletic. Little Arthur is a whirlwind when he gets going. This guy is tons of fun! And then when he settles down, he's a sweetheart just like his momma.

loves to be held and cuddled. She also likes to talk and has a cute, little trill.

Agatha and Arthur share quite a bond, and now that they're back together, they'd like to stay that way. Maybe this little family will make the perfect addition to your family?

For more information or to meet Agatha and Arthur in their foster home, call Joan 651-705-6264.

Five Fun Cuddly Little Boys

About three months ago nine very thin, sick kittens, affectionately called The Box of Nine, were abandoned in our shelter parking lot.  This group of kittens have been through quite a lot.  They  had multiple extended stays at our vet clinic.  And they lost their sibling Skittles, the smallest and sickest of the kittens, who passed away despite everyone's best efforts.  Now thanks to the veterinary staff and caring foster homes, five handsome little boys are ready to find their own homes.

Rocket, Yoda and Wolfgang are together in one foster home.

And Toby and Marshmallow are together in a second foster home.

If you are interested in meeting any of these little boys, contact our foster adoption coordinator Joan at 651-705-6264.

Squirt and Bella

Squirt, fka Bing Clawsby, and his friend Bella are so sweet together we had to share their latest update.

I just wanted to send you a quick update on Bing/Squirt. He is doing really well and is growing fast. He has a lot of energy and keeps us laughing. He is also a complete snuggle bunny - he loves to curl up around me and lay his head on my cheek when I am sleeping.

Squirt has a true friend in our dog Bella. They adore each other. They are always playing with each other, grooming each other and cuddling up together.

He is such a curious cat and has no fear. I was worried that he would climb the Christmas tree, but he hasn't. He does like to bat at the decorations on the bottom, but otherwise leaves the tree alone. He would much rather curl up underneath it - to my great relief! :)

Thanks again!

Skater Girls Update

Cossette fka Peggy and Emilie fka Dorothy have settled in to their forever home and are bonding with the older kitties in the home. These cute girls started off in foster care as orphaned babies with their sister Sonja.  Following is the latest update from their family.

Naomi and the kittens are getting along really well. They spend a lot of time together. We got a giant play tube from IKEA (meant for children). The kittens love playing with the tube. One kitten will be inside the tube and the other will play with them from the outside. Sometimes they are all in the tube.

Cossette likes to find things. She was taking the drain out of the bathroom sink and bringing it to the living room each day. She also likes looking for potpourri, pine cones, and other small objects she can carry around in her mouth. Then she will try to hide her treasures under a blanket.

Emilie likes to be as high as possible. She is very athletic and smart. She has decided that she likes to be under blankets and will try to climb under any blanket she can find. She likes to be held though or push her golf ball around at night. She also likes to sit on books in bookcases. Of course, no one can see her on the bookcase or on the fireplace mantel or on the counter top.

I am so glad we adopted the kittens. Naomi used to just sit in her chair all day and I think she was depressed. She seems so much happier now. She has friends to play with and keep her company now. Our other cat Penelope loves people but is a loner when it comes to cats. She seems to enjoy watching the kittens and the kittens seem to like having a big cat to cuddle up to.

Big Al

Big Al's family recently posted a photo of him on the Feline Rescue Facebook page.  So of course we asked for more to share online and we got the following great photos and as a bonus an update.

I adopted Big Al on Jan. 9, 2010, so he's been with me almost 2 years. He made himself at home right away, and he has been a very dear and fun companion. He's got a friendly, outgoing personality, even toward other cats. He was a stray before coming to Feline Rescue, and although he is pretty well socialized, you can see the alley cat in him when there's any kind of food around. We have daily disagreements about who gets to eat my breakfast. It's hard to stay mad at him even when he steals my toast, though, because he is so ready to chase a string or curl up on my lap to snuggle. He is bright eyed, alert and always wants to know what is happening. He has actually adapted to going outside on a leash and taking walks around the neighborhood, which makes a big impression on my neighbors. One time a lady driving by pulled over to tell me I had made her day--she had never seen anyone "walking a cat" before and she thought it was incredibly cool.

The first [set of photos] is from my old apartment, showing Big Al in some of his favorite spots, plus an original shelter photo of him. The other is from the apartment we moved to in September, and shows him exploring the new place. He seems to have settled on the radiator as the best place to hang out. It's right in front of the window, so he has a good view of the birds and squirrels, plus it is nice and warm.

Thanks so much for all you do for kitties in need! I'm glad I had the chance to adopt Big Al; he adds a lot of fun and sweetness to my household.


Thank you Karen!
