Baby, It's Cold Outside

Little "Tadpole" and his momma were trapped outside last night by Feline Rescue outreach volunteers.  If you can give them a temporary or permanent home in from the cold, please call 651-295-3758 or email.  Vet care has been provided.  



And the big guy, Gray Cloud, is still looking for somewhere to go.  He is now neutered, vaccinated, tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia.  He is a sweet boy!

Can you spare a room?

Gray Cloud has been living outside Feline Rescue's adoption center.  Some volunteers finally caught up with him, and he will be neutered and checked by the vet.  This big guy is sweet but has been on his own for a while and needs someone to show him what it's like to be loved again.  A quiet home environment would be best.  If you have an extra room and a little patience to work with Gray Cloud so he doesn't have to spend the winter outside, please contact outreach@felinerescue.org.

Lots to be thankful for...

Litter mates Leonard, Sheldon, and Bernadette were taken in by a Feline Rescue volunteer when she was volunteering at a MN SNAP (MN Spay Neuter Assistance Program) clinic up on the Red Lake Reservation.  These lucky kids are now about 6 months old and looking for forever homes. 



Leonard and Sheldon, the handsome twin tabbies, are best buds and would love to find a home together.  They are both sweet and playful.  Leonard and Sheldon will soon be available for adoption at Feline Rescue's adoption center.  For more information email or call 651-642-5900, ext. 3.

Books are always great gifts, and they’re even better when wrapped by Feline Rescue (FR) volunteers!

This is a great fundraiser and public relations event for FR, so we need volunteers to wrap book store purchases and tell holiday shoppers about the great work FR does.

Little Almond is in from the cold and needs a home

**Note, this is not a Feline Rescue cat, but we're posting this as a courtesy to her rescuers because we want her to find a great home! 

Almond is an adorable, little Siamese-tabby mix kitty.  She was lost or abandoned and spent the summer outside fending for herself:


I can't remember exactly how I got there, but somehow I discovered the yard of some kind people who put out lots of yummy foods for the birds and chipmunks. So I started spending lots of time in the yard with all the yummy birds and chipmunks. Gulp! Soon the kind people discovered that if they put out yummy kitty food for me, I wouldn't need to eat the wildlife. As it started to get cold, the people decided it was time for me to come inside. It's too cold out there for a little kitty all alone! So now here I am, all fixed up and getting fattened up and looking for a forever home. 


I'm cute and sweet, but I'm shy. After all, I've been fending for myself for a while now. I'm looking for someone who is patient, kind, and gentle. I'm very gentle myself. I would do well with another cat so we could play and just be cats together. 

If you might have the right home for Almond and are interested in fostering of adopting her, email or call 651-295-3758.

Moms Need Homes Too

As the weather gets colder here in Minnesota we are hopefully winding up a long, very busy kitten season.  Feline Rescue took in many momma cats and quite a few are still looking for homes of their own.



Kiwi


Laura has moved to our Adoption Center and can be visited there.


If you are interested in adopting one of our amazing momma cats, please contact our foster adoption coordinator at 651-705-6264. For Laura Roslin, please call 651-642-5900 ext. 3.

Pax and Puppy

We are always trying to find homes for our kittens where they will have another young cat or kitten as a playmate but a young dog or puppy is also usually a good match for a kitten's energy.

Charlie fka Pax has an adorable puppy friend, Mae Mobley, in his new home.  We recently received an update with photos.  Not much cuter than a kitten AND a puppy in a photo.


Well it took about two weeks for them to take a break from wrestling but they finally took a break so I could get a few pictures!


We changed his name to Charlie... Anyway, we are in love with him. I love his loud purrs that he still does if he's within two feet of either of us. We got him two different kitty trees and a plethora of toys (by far the favorite is the laser pointer, he hauls butt chasing it).

Back to wrestling

He's a wonderful cat and we love him so much. We are thankful that the organization and you stepped in and saved him from being put down. we already can't imagine him not being a part of our family. Thanks again!

Get Ready to Give


It’s a fun, modern, easy way to support Feline Rescue. Last year, we raised over $13,000 in just 24 hours. Do you suppose we could triple that this year? 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 the donor that wins $1,000 for the cats! They’ll love you!

How? 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 – the cats’ 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 medium nonprofit organizations – budgets over $100,000 but less than $1,000,000 – which receive the most dollars on Give to the Max Day. Feline Rescue is in this category. If everybody who votes for us at Animal Rescue and brings in the $1,000 prizes shows up for Give to the Max, we can win one of these bonuses! More Cat Food! More Toys!

HERE’S OUR GIVEMN GIVE TO THE MAX WEB SITE:
http://givemn.razoo.com/story/Feline-Rescue-2

Save this link for November 15! This is the one day a year on which you can “Vote Early, Vote Often”!

What is GiveMN?
GiveMN.org is the smart way for you to discover, support and engage with the charities that are right for you. The online giving platform allows you to easily find organizations that match your giving goals, support them through secure credit or debit card donations, receive automated tax deductible receipts through email, and conveniently track and record your donations in a single online location. Feline Rescue thinks GiveMN.org is a great idea: More money for cats, less work for people!

Letting Go As Foster Volunteers

As a foster volunteer for Feline Rescue for the past 6+ years, I've frequently been asked how I can let my foster kittens go.  Many people say they can't foster because they wouldn't be able to give up their foster kitties.

My reply is always that if I don't let my foster kitties go then I know I can't take in more which means that another kitten at an animal control facility may be killed or babies being born outside may not survive because of the weather, predators or people.  As animal rescuers we know that we can't save them all but even if we can save one more it is all worth it.

The following is from one of our fabulous volunteer foster caregivers. Being able to meet and approve of your foster kitties' new families always makes it easier to let go.

Potential adopters come to my house hoping to meet just the right foster cat or kitten to take Home, but I tell the kitties it's their decision, too. Recently, Angela O. came over looking for a playmate for her current cat. Angela especially wanted to meet Willis, who's one of the group of 10 kittens taken into foster care last summer. Brief introductions were made, the kittens played a few games (and wowed the visitor!) and a few minutes later Willis made his choice - as you can see from this photo. Sometimes I'm asked how I can say goodbye to the cats & kittens that I foster. I just look forward to moments like this!



If you are interested in learning more about becoming a foster volunteer, please check out our Foster FAQ page and then contact Cathy, Feline Rescue's foster coordinator, at 651-230-3263 or email fostercare@felinerescue.org.

Godric's Big Adventure!

Meet Godric, one of our newest foster kittens!


Godric, a 6 month old orange tabby boy, came to us all the way from Indianapolis. We are Feline Rescue fosters and we were visiting family in Indianapolis when we came across a very sick and hungry kitten. We offered him food and water and he devoured it. We really wanted to help him but were not sure how an 11 hour drive would work with a kitten. He decided to work it and followed us all the way to our car and got in!

(Godric following us.)

The next day we were on our way home and things got really interesting! Our car died in the middle of nowhere Indiana and we had to get towed! The tow company said Godric couldn't come in the tow truck so we decided to stay in the car, on top of the tow, with him.

(Godric as we get lifted on to the tow truck.)

The entire time he just sat there, looking out the window and purring!


Finally we got our car to a auto shop and they told us we would have to wait till the next day to get the car fixed. The tow truck guy met Godric (and fell in love a little bit) and said he could ride in the tow truck when he dropped us off at the hotel.


We found a pet friendly hotel and Godric made himself right at home!


The next day we were back on the rode and Godric was perfect the entire time! Every hour or so he would switch laps and fall back asleep.


Godric is an AMAZING young cat! He is looking for his forever home and would love for you to meet him in his foster home. If you are interested please contact Joan at 651-705-6264.
