Kitties in need of homes on Catster-these are our friends,- lets' help as we can!

Hi Kits,

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:
Harrison:

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

Blizzard was at the vet yesterday with a Urinary blockage. He came home later, but was acting very oddly, hissing and growling and hiding from his daddy.

Everyone, please purr your hardest. This is our Catfather!!!!

 

We are Cats....

....we are cats...we run along on padded silent paws that can become thunderous when we want to play....sliding and thumping into your life with complete self assuredness.
we are cats, kittens all at one time...mysterious magickal jesters that can bring you to laughter in the darkest moments with our antics.
we are cats, spirits of wonder housed in the most lovely forms, and we are made of purrs and 'rrrrttts?' and warm fur in the sunshine.
we are cats, and we come into your life when you most need us and sometimes least expect us, and we never, ever leave you the same again, though our stay here be long but brief.
we are cats, we are your soul mates and friends, with ancient eyes and endless selves. We don't 'pass away' but pass along, tail high, retreating just a bit and then, leaping high in the air to become star stuff, only to land on all fours, back in your life in new suit of fur, a rumbling purr...

we are cats, and you will always, always find us when you need us most.





I wrote this for little Alfies diary...

But wanted to share it with all our pawrents who know the magick of Us.

love and light,
Ruffy

Light A Candle for Blizzard

 

To pee or not to pee, that is the question.

Yesterday mommy let me in the bedroom in the morning so I could look out the back window at the squirrels and birdies. I like to do that, and she knows it. Daddy and Natty were still sleeping, Daddy snoring away with Natalie beside him.
Well, Mommy went out in the living room to have coffee with the other cats, and when she came back in she gave a little shriek because there was a river of cat pee running from the towel under the eliptical machine. Mommy woke daddy who sat up and said 'huh?" and Mommy said. "Your son peed on the towel over there." And daddy said 'oh, ok.' and flopped back down to sleep.
Mommy got some stuff to clean it up and told Daddy he needed to get that towel and put it in the wash. Mommy scolded me.
But you see, mommy had some empty cat traps there near that spot,a nd they smelled like male cat! I can't have another male cat I don't know in my territory, so I had to let him know, wherever he is, that this is my place! (well, Smokie's too, but I was the spokespeecat on this one.)
So....to pee or not to pee? Do you mark your territory somehow?

Peecefully proud,
Ruffy

It's about me...and about how mom and dad got me! It's a short version, but I wanted to share it with everyone...and dedicate it to all of those living with FIV+.

I would also like to dedicate it to Sarge, and his Daddy. Thank you Sarge's Daddy for bringing into your home a very extrodinary cat. We believe that your Spirit Guide, Sarge, will return to purr for you again....

Though Mommys name is on the story, it is about me, and I'm so excited! There are even nice pictures of me on it!

Thank you Catster!

 

National Adopt-A-Cat month!

Hi Furs and their folks!

Firstly, to all of you who have 'come in from the cold' a salute to you and your folks for taking you in!

As you know, Mommy wrote a story about me being FIV+ and about me coming to live with Daddy and her. (See previous Diary).

I want to ask any of you folks who have had a beloved fur cross the bridge to open your heart, and consider one of us...the FIV+ cats.

We have a harder time getting homes, and we are wonderful, happy cats. Are we sickly? No more so than others, folks. My cousin Blackie who was FIV+ lived to be 16 years old.

If you feel that you can't, then would you consider adopting? So many of us need homes...even here on Catster.

As Blizzard says, many furs are routinely euthanized in shelters for lack of room. There are those who are also considered 'unadoptable' in NY, and other states that need to be pulled by rescues from kill shelters. Some are kittens who have committed no crime except getting a slight cold, or having a slight injury.

If my people hadn't taken me in, my life would probably have been short, as with Smokie and even CK. CK had ticks when he was found, and he was a little kitten. Bella, my eldest sister was found outside defending her kits, standing before them when a woman sprayed them with a hose....

now she lays in a warm patch of sun on our end table, enjoying the warmth....

I gaze into the future and send out energy....and see a butterfly at the window. I say 'good morning Ollie-did you come to say hello from the Bridge? And I stand up on my hinds and touch noses to Simba, newly at Rainbow...and coming to say hello is Sarge...

All these furs were cats from the cold....and we have a feeling they will send others ..for such is our way.

And I send energy to those still out there, on the street, in cages, or perhaps in situations that are precarious...I ask you all to please purr with me furrs.....

and for those folks in a position to do so, to consider adopting one of us in need.

love and light,
Ruffy

 

Emergency rescue needed for cat that is on Death Row in- Miami because she tested FIV+ positive! She's 11 years- young!

Furs and Folks,

This is Hunter's last night.
Her story is a tragic one. She came in with 3 others, who were rescued. When Hunter's test came back positive for FIV+, she was not rescued. (let us not cast stones at the person who did what she could to save the others-they are out of that hell hole.)

Hunter is a 'senior' cat, if one can call 11 a senior.

I seriously truthfully doubt that she is FIV+. The 'Snap' test used is often unreliable.

As many of you know, and see with myself, Princess, Smokie, we are not pariahs, nor are we going to make another cat ill. Cats get the virus because of being bitten by a cat with the virus. Hunter can live a very long, happy, and loving life. Natalie Bella and CK all live with we who are FIV+ and are happy and healthy.

Hunter can fit into any loving feline household, and the poor tortie girl looks terrified...to lose a home, and wind up there...and now this?

She can live a long full and healthy life...if she even has the virus. It's somewhat more rare in female cats.

If she gets out of there alive.

Posted 10:17pm June 3rd.

Purring for a miracle!

The kitty I posted about is safe, at home with other kitties and a new daddy. She will be joining a clowder of 5 established FIV+ kitties and also a new kitten rescued the same time she was.

Now I know Superman is real!

Thank you for this miracle! And to the folks here who helped!
