The Whole Kaboodle

Emma

As we reflect on the successful rescues of the past year, we know that there is only a short period of time to get ready for the kitten season which will soon be upon us. With daylight increasing and the weather getting warmer, newborn kittens will soon appear. Many will be dropped off at local animal shelters and will need to be rescued before their time is up. If they are not tagged by a rescue organization, or adopted out by the shelter, they will be euthanized.   

This was the situation in which we found Emma and Carla. Both cats were pregnant and had been dropped off at the local animal shelter where Carla gave birth to 6 kittens and Emma, while we aren’t sure how many she actually gave birth to, we do know she nurtured 9 kittens as her own.  It is, we are sure, the only reason the orphans survived as the need for mother's milk is especially critical in the  first 48 hours of life.      

New Beginnings Cat Rescue tagged the momma cats and all the kittens. Though the mother cats are still waiting for a loving family, all 15 kittens have been adopted.  These kittens survived because you made it financially possible for the volunteers of New Beginnings Cat Rescue to do what they love to do;

Rescue Cats. Thank you!!

Older Lovable Cats

Carson

Hundreds of cats come through our rescue each year and most find their new home within 3 months. Some are older cats and it may take four times longer for them to be adopted than the younger cats and kittens.  Since November is Adopt-a-Senior-Pet Month, we wanted to tell you the rescue stories of some of our senior cats.  

Meet 8 year old Carson, a typical sassy calico. She spent 10 months with various fosters at New Beginnings Cat Rescue, and also spent time at the adoption center. In September of 2013 she became very ill with acute hepatic lipidosis (fatty liver disease).. All the instability in her life caused her to become depressed and she refused to eat. The vet surgically inserted a feeding tube into her esophagus. Her sassiness prevailed and she got better.  This past October, a year after almost dying, Carson was adopted into a loving home.  

Next, we have Mikey & Newton, these 5 year old black and white Tuxedo brothers were both rescued from being euthanized, coming from a hoarder situation. Both cats tested positive for FIV and both had to have full mouth extractions, leaving each with only 2 teeth. These handsome boys are both happy and playful and are ready to be adopted into their forever home. 

Next there is 7 year old Tess, a beautiful gray and white Persian mix who beat the odds thanks to receiving the right treatment for hepatic lipidosis.  A healthy Tess is now ready to be adopted.

Last but not least is 6 year old Chrystal, a beautiful gray and white Russian Blue mix. She was rescued from a local kill shelter and is now looking to find a wonderful home with a loving family.  

Thank you for supporting our project on Global Giving.  Without your support, I shudder to think where these precious senior cats would be today.  Thankfully, they will enjoy the rest of their 9 lives feeling full, warm and loved.

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.
