Catalina

Little Catalina is a young mother cat who, just prior to giving birth, was taken to an animal shelter where she delivered her 4 kittens. As their allotted time was running out, the shelter notified us of the urgent situation. New Beginnings Cat Rescue took the mom and kittens and lined up a foster family to offer them a safe environment for the mother to raise her babies.

As the attached video shows, they all look very comfortable and the kittens are thriving.  Before too long, they will be vetted and ready to find their forever home.

Thank you for financially supporting our efforts to save these precious baby kittens.  We couldn't do it without you.

6 Plus 1

Shelly

New Beginnings Cat Rescue receives emails daily from the local animal shelters notifying us about specific cats whose time is running out. They must be tagged by a rescue organization or, sad to say, they will be put down.

In one particular rescue this spring, there were 2 kittens with their mother, as well as 3 orphaned kittens, whose time had run out. The 6 cats were tagged by NBCR and, with foster families ready, a volunteer heads over to the shelter to rescue the momma cat and all 5 kittens. 

The challenging part of any rescue is balancing the number of cats rescued with the number of foster families or available space in our adoption center.  So it was, when the volunteer started gathering up the cats, she noticed there was 1 little kitten, all alone and not tagged by any rescue.  His owner surrendered him to the shelter that same day. He was in the isolation area, in a cage, all by himself, trembling in the corner, very scared. The volunteer put him in the carrier with the other 3 kittens. There wasn't a hiss or a growl. I guess they knew he was in the same boat. 

When asked if she got all the cats that were tagged, her answer was “all 6 plus 1”.  

Thank you for donating to New Beginnings Cat Rescue.  With your financial help, there just has to be room to rescue 1 more homeless kitten.

For Cats Like Andy

Andy is a 1 ½ year old male Ragdoll that showed up out of the blue at a Good Samaritan's house. It was quickly noticed that Andy had a very severe limp in his rear leg.  After being x-rayed we learned Andy had a broken pelvis and a dislocated hip, OUCH!  Our best guess is that he was hit by a car.  Despite being very painful, this handsome boy never growled or hissed at being handled.  He underwent a femoral head ostectomy (FHO), a surgical procedure that separates the femur from the head and neck. FHO surgery is performed to alleviate pain. It is a salvage procedure, reserved for conditions where pain cannot be alleviated any other way. It is often performed in cases of trauma where the head of the femur is badly broken or severed. Andy had his surgery in mid-March and is well on his way to recovery. Although he will require several more weeks of limited mobility, we believe Andy will be making a full recovery and will soon be jumping up to sit in some lucky owner's lap.  For now, he settles for letting you sit down on the floor and crawling into your lap, or leaning up against you.  He is a remarkable boy that is thankful to have only used up one of his 9 lives.

It is for cats like Andy, who benefit from your donations to New Beginnings Cat Rescue.

Thank you for your generous support through GlobalGiving.
