Listen, some business here-the following cats all need to be 're-homed'. One we know is Harrison. He's a handsome dude like myself. Though it's believed that Harrison would be best as an 'only' cat, mehinks he might do well with a younger sib or another boy....he reminds Mom of Smokie, who can be very very dominant.
But here is a list of the kitties and their pages:
http://www.catster.com/cats/1196521 Harrison, Ca.
and our friends Pumpkin, Missy and Willow
As per Willows page, they only have 2 weeks to find homes. This is a big worry to me. Because then what? Can all of us who can work to find these kits homes? Perhaps one of us has bid a goodbye to a fur and would be ablle to take one or more?
We are in a difficult place with 6 of us in a small space, but we know that some may have 'room at the inn'.
As the economy has been bad, we fear it's hurt some of our friends, and made it difficult for them to find lodging and housing with their furs. This is the scariest thing, and one of the reason's mom wants when she finishes her schooling, to escape from NY. But we know others have had to move across country to other oppertunties and despite very bad situations, have taken their cats.
We ask all here...no matter where you are....to put out word of mouth and reach out to the people with the furts to help. Why? Because there but for the Grace of God....
Good energy comes back 3 fold....if you heart leads you...listen.
When Mommy and Daddy bought CK home, it was becuase there was no where else for him. We know that Mommy and Daddy didn't plan on it, but we love CK, and we are glad.
We'd like to say to anyone who is struggling....please reach out to the following if you feel you must rehome:
1)Go in and speak with your vet! In fact, go in and speak with many vets or their office staff. Do this in person. It's too easy to have somoene on the phone say 'ok'' but somoene in person is going to be more real. Have a poster ready with your cats picture on it and ask the vet for help, to post it in their lobby and to consider your cat for anyone who recently saw a cat fly to the Bridge.
2) If there are pet sitters in the area, or you use one, contact them. Email them pictures, and explain the situation. Delilah, our foster, got a home with a friend of a friend of a catsitter. It was word of mouth. It can be done, and personal contacts can be the best.
3) Contact local rescues. If possible, hang onto your cats and let the rescue 'show' them at their events. Offer to volunteer to give back, so the rescue doesn't feel overwhelmed.
4)Network with everyone you know and everyone you don't. Go to local businesses, and ask if you can put up a poster. Ask if they know of anyone who would want a very sweet and loving cat.
We are very sad when we see that cats must be rehomed. We urge eveyrone doing so to not react and do something that could cause the kitty harm.
Blessings to all...and we hope all our friends will find the best homes there are.
Love and light, Ruffy

We're so sorry that Missy, Pumpkin, and Willow are also looking for homes. We will purr that something works out for all of them.
Oh no! This is so sad to hear. Mom knows how difficult it is to rehome or adopt out a kitty she did all the things you suggested and worked close with several rescue groups but we all ended up here with her not that we mind but what if she could not have kept us?.... we will repost a plea for help too.
