thoughts on adoptions--Hope is the word of the day

December 17th 2011 8:41 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Today is the last placement event of 2011 for the Yolo County SPCA. Our adoptions numbers are down and we are hoping that in 2012 things will be better. That is one thing that we have--hope. We have hope that more people will spay & neuter their pets so there will be fewer unwanted animals. We hope that TNR programs are put into place in every city, county, town and community so that there will be fewer community cats. We hope that more people see the value of cats. It is more likely that people who move will take their dog & leave the cat. More dogs are returned to owners from shelters than cats. We hope that the friction and division in the rescue community will end. We all want the same things--to help animals --no matter what words we use. We hope to help more and to inspire others to join with us in a positive way to do this. We hope to end the abuse of animals and people. There are so many things that we hope for. We need your help to make these hopes and dreams come true. Purr with me & my family for rescues and forever homes. Support your local shelters and rescue groups. Spay and neuter your pets. Help all of us help each other.


Homes of their own for the Holidays

There are many animals (and people) who need homes of their own for the holidays. Are you thinking of adding a furry family member to your clan? Please visit your local shelter or animal rescue organization to adopt. There are cats and kittens and dogs and puppies and rabbits all looking for homes of their own. If you are not looking for a new family member please support your local shelter and rescue groups. There are so many negative words in the animal rescue community. My wish for the Holiday season is that every one who wants to help animals will stop using negative words and attacking other groups and remember what it is they wanted to do in the first place--help the animals. We all need to work together and focus on the positive aspects--higher adoption rates, more animals redeemed, fewer surrendered. more altered and stop calling names and making accusations that one way is better than another. Adopt don't shop!! Purr with me and my family on the Power of purr in the rescues forum.


Same song more kittens more cats more homes needed

I know I have told you before that we help with the foster kittens of the Yolo County SPCA in California. We take care of the fosters for my person and help them get ready for homes of their own. It is hard and rewarding work. We love to see the babies get healthy and learn to play. We love to hear the happy endings and see pictures of beautiful adult cats that were the babies we fostered. What we don't understand are some of the people who happily adopt a kitten and promise us that they will take care of the kitten for the rest of its live and then. . .move. . .have a baby. . get a different job. . and contact us to return the cat it has grown up to be. That is hard. Kitten season is continuing here in California we have many kittens that are ready to be adopted and often people overlook the wonderful adult cats for the cute fluffy kittens. Please everyone spread the word to adopt a rescued animal. There are so many and they need permanent homes.

I have written so many diaries over the past few years with the same topics and hopes. Next week is Thanksgiving and I thought I would think about what I am grateful for. I am grateful that I was rescued from bad kids when I was a kitten. I am grateful that my foster person gave me a home of my own. Although I am now the elder cat in the household I am grateful for the foster kittens. I have passed the duties of taking care of them to the younger boys but still enjoy cuddle and grooming time. I am thankful for rescue groups who are working to help the animals in our communities. I am thankful for Spay and Neuter clinics that help people and animals. I am thankful for so many thing.

For the holidays I wish everyone and everycat would donated to a rescue group of your choice in your area. Support your local shelters and rescue groups. If you can't donate money donate time or supplies. If you can't do any of these help with positive thoughts and good words. Tell everyone you know that you support rescue. Spay and neuter your animals.

And last of all Adopt don't shop!! and always remember that Rescues Rock!! Purr power for all!


remembrance day

Originally Veteran's day was remembrance day. At a certain time everyone would stop and have a moment of silence to remember WWI and the tragedies that came from it. Poppies were sold to remember Flanders Fields where the poppies grew among the markers for the soldiers buried there. I am wondering when are we going to organize our nation and the world to remember that animals need homes. Sacramento SPCA had a wonderful adoption event yesterday on 11/11/11 and adopted more animals that they had hoped. It is wonderful when people respond to these kinds of events, but I wish for a day when we don't have to have special adoption events. I wish for a day when all animals are treasured and have homes of their own. Please continue to remember that rescues rock and that there are so many wonderful animals in shelters and with rescue groups hoping and searching for homes of their own. Please adopt and if you must shop. . shop rescue groups. Purr long and loud for rescues and forever homes for all!! Spay and neuter your pets!! Please donate to rescue groups and your local shelter. We do lots with very little. And remember always


Fall thoughts

Fall is here all of a sudden in N California. Leaves are starting to turn and the nights are cold. My person is so lucky to have us to snuggle with her and keep her warm. I know that it was a hard and busy week for her at work and there is nothing like a purring kitty on your lap to help you relax. And there are so many kittens and cats that need to find laps of their own. I share my person with foster kittens but I know that if the fosters move into homes of their own that there will be more fosters needing care and cuddling. Please tell your friends and family that we have so many wonderful animals looking for homes. Adopt don't shop and always remember that rescues rock!!!


fostering kittens

fostering kittens is hard. They are fragile and sometimes they get sick. They dance in their litter box and play with their poop. They are always under foot and especially hazardous at feeding time. They may miss the litter box or throw up making lots of laundry. Fostering kittens is hard work.
Fostering kittens is also fun. You get to experience the joy of thundering paws running through your house. If the kitten is a little bit shy you are the one that experiences that first purr. You see the leap of faith that kittens take into your arms and running to you for love and food.
When you foster you know first hand that you are making a difference. Fostering kittens is hard work but full of joy. My family fosters kittens. Maybe your family would like to help by fostering too. Many rescue groups are struggling and need foster homes. If you are interested contact your local shelter or rescue groups.
Join with my family on the power of purr to purr for rescues and forever homes. We need our foster kittens adopted so we can rescue more.


Kitten season is continuing

In years past by October kitten season was winding down and lots of 4-6 week old kittens weren't being found and in need of rescue. This is not the case this year. Last week it was my person's birthday and she wished for lots of adoptions. Yolo County SPCA did have many dog adoptions but only one cat. At least it was our foster but in order to help the one that someone found and the under-aged in need at the shelter we need more. So rev up those purrs Catsters and join with me & my family on the Rescue forum to purr long and loud for rescues and forever homes. We need help with purrs for adoptions!! Join us now and know that your purrs are making a difference.

Today is my person's birthday!! Her wishes for today are that this is the biggest adoption day ever for all of the rescue groups and shelters in our area. I would like to expand that and wish for more adoptions for all rescue groups and shelters in the world!! Please purr long and loud for rescues and forever homes. Please support local rescue groups so that more can find homes!! Adopt don't shop. . or if you want to shop check out Petfinder for local rescue groups and shelters in your community. Help us help the animals in our communities!!


are you superstitious?

My person is. Not in a way that you would think, though. We need adoptions for Yolo County SPCA because we want to rescue more and more and more. So I write in my diary about rescue and adoptions. My whole family posts in the Power of Purr on the Rescues forum. My person posts pictures of special cats on Facebook. Doing this seems to get the good thoughts rolling and we have adoptions. If all Catsters who read this do the same maybe it would get an adoption avalanche going for all dogs/puppies, cats/kittens and bunnies who need a home. Our dream is to have an empty shelter and for every animal to be in a home where they are wanted and well treated. Is that too much to ask? With the power of purr we are working on it!! Join with us. Support your local shelter and rescue organizations. They are the ones working to help animals in your community. Remember the purr makes us all powerful!
