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!

Muffin's New German Shepherd Friend

We usually caution people that it can take a week or two or sometimes months before a new kitty feels comfortable around other animals in their home.  But in less than a week former Feline Rescue foster kitten Muffin has gone from scared and unsure of his new canine family member Saski to sleeping and playing together.

A little play by play from Muffin's family...

We've tried to introduce the two animals but Muffin is quite scared of Saskia. Hopefully in time he will realize Saski is no threat and will become friends.

Well Muffin is acting more and more relaxed, even purring in my lap with Saski in the room. Saski keeps her distance and is being very patient. It's beginning to look hopeful.

Just returned from my trip. while I was gone, the kitten has become completely tolerant of Saski, to the point where it appears that Saski has him in her mouth or totally under her big paws, and the cat just accepts this and playfully bites and paws at her nose! I honestly can't believe it. They are sleeping together on the bed with Sara at night. The kitten is a little ninja, very fast, Saski gives chase and he is fearless as well as gentle with her. Amazing.

They are becoming best buddies. We decided on the name Boris in honor of Sara's sister's cat, a beautiful black male who died recently.

Thank you to Boris's new family! Always heartwarming to see a former Feline Rescue kitty adapting well in their home.

From Space Explorers to Hockey Players

Spock and Kirk have resigned from the Federation, landed in their forever home and taken up hockey (floor hockey with a stuffed mouse).  They are now named Ovie and Oodie and these playful young guys could certainly give the real Ovie and Oodie a run for their money.

Spock is primarily black so their adopters had to wait until November to take them home.  While they waited to bring home the boys, their mom made them their very own personalized bowl :)

More photos from their family...

Mr. Magoo

Mr. Magoo is a special guy with special needs who found his forever home a little over a year and half ago. We recently received the following wonderful update from his family.

Magoo, Summer 2011

Hello- just wanted to share some pictures with you of my Mr. Magoo who I adopted from you in April 2010. You probably recall that Mr. Magoo was found on the street by himself as a very young kitten. He has very limited vision and requires daily eye treatments. After fostering, he came in to my home one month after I lost my senior cat Toby to a brain tumor. Magoo wins the hearts of all who meet him...he is mischievous, funny and has rituals that bring a lot of laughter into this home. He is great friends w/ 10 year old Oliver who is making a miraculous recovery from lymphoma of the intestine. Lily tolerates that she is deaf she finds him less annoying. He is oblivious to her rebuffs and occupies his time by himself if Oliver is sleeping.

Magoo and Oliver, Summer 2011

Thank you for the wonderful work you do which resulted in such a beautiful match up with Magoo in my home.


Thank you Kathy for providing a home for Mr. Magoo!

Muffin and Moxie: out of the cold and into your lap

Did you know that many kittens who are “born feral” are easy to socialize and can become great pets? It’s important to plan ahead before trapping a stray cat though. The Alley Cat Allies website has step-by-step tips to help you take the right action at the right time.

Muffin and Moxie were rescued through Feline Rescue's Spay-Neuter-Outreach Program as part of a trap-neuter-release project when they were three and four months old. Scared at first, these well-socialized girls are now sweet lap cats who love their indoor lifestyle. They are active, outgoing, and adorable kittens. And Muffin and Moxie are now looking for a forever home!

Give to the Max Day!

Get ready, get set, GIVE!

It’s a fun, modern, easy way to support Feline Rescue. Last year, we raised over $11,000 in just 24 hours. Do you suppose we could triple that this year? All told last year, more than 42,000 donors logged on to and gave over $10 million to Minnesota non-profits during Give to the Max Day. GiveMN’s Give to the Max Day amplifies your giving impact in a number of ways:

We Could Win a Golden Ticket! $1,000 will be given to a random donor’s charity every hour. You could be that donor! How do you do this? If you intend to donate $100 to Feline Rescue, donate $10 in each of 10 different hours. Or $20 in five different hours. Are you an early riser – or a night owl? Donate at 1:00, 2:00, 3:00, 4:00, 5:00, or 6:00 AM. Why? Because there won’t be many donors at those hours – our random chances go up when you keep odd hours.

Put us on the Leader Board! $15,000, $10,000 and $5,000 prize grants will be awarded to the top three nonprofit organizations (colleges and universities excluded) which receive the most dollars in 24 hours during Give to the Max Day.

Important!! NEW THIS YEAR! $15,000, $10,000 and $5,000 prize grants will be awarded to the top three small nonprofit organizations – with budgets under $750,000 – which receive the most dollars on Give to the Max Day. Feline Rescue is in this category; we can win one of these bonuses!

Here’s Feline Rescue's GiveMN Give to the Max Day page:

Strange Bedfellows

The weather is getting much colder with snow on the way soon here in Minnesota.  And you know it's getting colder when cats that normally aren't in the same room together are found lounging together on the same bed.

Clockwise from top left: foster kitten Louis Purrstrong, resident kitty Snuggles, foster kitten Ike, foster kitten Irene, resident kitty Meep and foster kitty Angelina

If you are interested in meeting foster kittens Ike, Louis, and Irene, please contact Joan at 651-705-6264.

Apricot and Kiwi Update

Apricot and Kiwi, fka Snookie, are settling right in to their home. We received a great update and some gorgeous photos of these fun sisters who recently found a home together. They no longer have to share one big window at the shelter with a bunch of other kitties so it looks like they are really enjoying having their own views of the world.

Hello Feline Rescue,

I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how things are going with Apricot and Kiwi, who I adopted on 10/27.

Things are going really well. They've settled in just fine... We are really enjoying having them in our lives. I'm so happy that Kiwi spoke up and called me over when we were there to look at other cats. Had she not done that, I wouldn't have had the chance to fall in love with them.

Thank you so much.
