Tornado Devasted North Minneapolis: Dogs and Cats in Need!

A tornado ripped through an area of Minneapolis this past Sunday, damaging thousands of homes.

Residents are in need of assistance and many animal rescue organizations are trying to provide assistance for residents' companion animals.

Feline Rescue volunteers will be collecting food at our shelter, transporting the food to a central location and helping coordinate getting the food to victims of the tornado.

If you are in the area and able to help, our shelter is located at 593 Fairview Ave. N., St. Paul.

Calendar Girls: May & July

I fostered these kittens when they came from Red Lake Rosie's Rescue as tiny kittens with their mom. I had to come up with names in a hurry at the vet's office, so mom became January and the kittens were April, May, June, July and August. These two moved to Feline Rescue Adoption Center and we are looking for a home for them together.

Tabby Calendar Girls: May & July

“Yeah, yeah, my heart’s in a whirl, I love, I love, I love my little calendar girls…. May – Maybe if I ask your dad and mom, June – They’ll let me take you to the Junior Prom, July – Like a firecracker all aglow….”

“Wait a minute, what happened to June? Oh, she already got adopted? OK. But you’re still my little calendar girls, right?”

“We are, we are! We are sister tabbies. We’re about 9 months old. We’re cute, we’re sassy, we’re curious. We love you, too! We have lynx ears – see our little ear tufts? We came from northern Minnesota so, maybe, we are lynx ladies. Could be. We are a matched set. If we were tea cups instead of cats, we would have a tea pot to match. But we’re cats – and very proud to be cats.”

July has the pink nose, May the brown one. We both have fascinating stripes of deep orange running through our tabby stripes, sort of like little orange creeks. Both noses will happily stick themselves in your face and greet you. We’re still a bit young to settle down and sit in laps, but, for climbing and clinging, we think a human is great – at least until we get ourselves a real cat tree. Well, you will get us one, won’t you?

We are explorers. If we don’t know what it is, we will need to check it out. We travel about in indoor spaces and find things. We don’t sail around and yell, “Yee haw!” and “Hoo ya!” like some of these folks here. We’re purposeful; we concentrate our energy on sniffing stuff out. We met Lewis and Clark when they got lost in northern Minnesota. Oh, they didn’t? Well, somebody taught us to explore – maybe it was Mom – or sister June.

Could we talk a little business now? See, we’ve just about learned all there is to learn around here. We’d like to explore your place. We’re thinking you’ve got some fun corners and crannies – and some cat toys – and….Oh, goodie. We need $200 to pay for our food, our space, and our visit to the veterinarian. That wasn’t fun, by the way. Everything else. How about it? A matched set of Calendar Girls – May and July – no teapot included. Yours! We’re going to love you!

Tuck the handsome orange boy

Late last week we received word that a handsome young orange cat needed our help. Meet Tuck.Tuck was found with an injured pelvis, presumably from being hit by a car. This friendly guy needed surgery to remove the ball in his pelvis. He had the surgery Monday and he's starting to recover.Here is Tuck taking a very short break from his kennel rest to model his newly shaved hip! Like any young kitty, he has a lot of energy. He is getting around quite well already.
Our supporters make it possible for us to help cats like Tuck. His surgery was intensive (and expensive!). If you are able to help Tuck and the many other injured kitties we take in every year, we appreciate donations in any amount! You can donate online by clicking on the donation box in the sidebar to the right. Please specify your donation should go towards Tuck/Foster Care.
He will recover in a foster home and then he'll be ready for adoption. We will keep you updated on his progress! I met him during his photoshoot today and trust me, he is a little love bug :)
