Rescues and Adoptions: Read a Bunch of Stories

Leo and Theo, inseparable!

Give me a few days of working on household projects and not on my computer and I’ve lost my schedule and don’t have a rescue story prepared for today! Actually, that’s not quite true—I did, but it was an older rescue and just yesterday I got in touch with the adoptive person who has a few photos to send me but couldn’t scan and e-mail them. I’d rather wait and add the photos and details, so in the absence of a story I’ll just link to all the others you can read at your leisure.

Rescue Stories

Henry, on his first night in our house.

You can find an archive of my rescue stories in several ways. One is by clicking the link in the previous sentence, and I also have links to them elsewhere on my site.

  1. If you look in the carousel above the main menu you’ll see an icon with a black and white cat named Henry and “Rescue Stories” beneath it.
  2. In the menu immediately below the carousel, you can also find “rescue stories” in the drop-down menu under “Features”.
  3. In the right-hand column you’ll find a drop-down for “categories” right above the calendar, scroll down to find “rescue stories”.
  4. And finally, when you read a story, at the very top are the topics under which that story is categorized, and if you click on “rescue story” there, it will take you to the archive.

Cats for Adoption

And because we can never post cats for adoption often enough, and also because each cat for adoption comes with its own rescue story, please take some time to browse and share the cats for adoption, most of whom are still looking for homes.

  1. If you look in the carousel above the main menu you’ll see an icon with a calico cat named Penny and “Cats for Adoption” beneath it.
  2. In the menu immediately below the carousel, you can also find “cats for adoption” in the drop-down menu under “Features”.
  3. In the right-hand column you’ll find a drop-down for “categories” right above the calendar, scroll down to find “cats for adoption”.
  4. And finally, when you read a story, at the very top are the topics under which that story is categorized, and if you click on “cats for adoption” there, it will take you to the archive.

So enjoy looking at the absolute cuteness of Leo and Theo up there, and read and share a few stories—maybe we’ll find a few good homes for cats!


Can’t adopt? Foster! Can’t foster? Donate or volunteer.

There are so many ways you can help cats who need homes and care. You may not have room to adopt another cat, but can foster a cat or kitten for a few weeks. If not that, you can volunteer at a shelter or with a rescue, or donate. You do this because you love your cat, and by doing so you help all cats. No matter which of these actions you take, you help to save a life, and make life better for all cats.

  • Adopt one of the cats I’ve posted here, or from any shelter or rescue near you, or from Petfinder, to open up a space for another cat to be rescued and fostered.
  • Offer to foster cats or kittens for a shelter or rescue near you.
  • Volunteer at a shelter or rescue.
  • Find a group of volunteers who work with homeless cats and help them with their efforts.
  • Donate to a shelter or rescue near you.

If you can foster kittens or adults cats to help prepare them for a forever home, please run to your nearest shelter and find a cat who needs you! Anyone can help with this effort at any level, even if all you do is donate to a shelter or rescue so they can help to pay for the food or medications needed for their foster, or the spay/neuter/veterinary care during a clinic.

And a big thanks to the people who have gone out of their way to rescue an unneutered polydactyl tom who had an huge abscess in his cheek, a really old orange cat who was filthy with his own waste and dirt and food, who transported a friendly adult female on death row whose only transgression was a URI, and who rescued all the momcats and kittens and bottle fed all the orphaned kittens and who feed all the cats outdoors who they can’t take in. The stories fly by every single day and I can’t keep up with them, but I’m so glad people take the time for this.
