Happy Holidays from CATS! As we enter into the holiday season we want to make sure we send appreciation to all our supporters and donors! We would not be able to help all the cats and kittens that we do without your support, so thank you!
We are hoping that our newest rescue family find homes in time for the holiday season. This beautiful pregnant cat was found abandoned at a park in Santa Ana. A Good Samaritan found her and took her into her home. Shortly after being rescued, she went into labor and had these adorable kittens! The Good Samaritan contacted us for assistance and we agreed to rescue back the family. The family has completed all their vetting and are looking for their loving forever home through CATS.
You can see from the photos that momma cat has beautiful green eyes, but did you know all kittens are born with blue eyes?
A kitten’s eyes are definitely on the list of their cutest attributes. All kittens have pretty blue eyes when they’re born. As they grow, their eye color continues to develop. For a lot of kittens, this means their eyes change color. Even cats with dark eyes once had blue peepers. I wonder what color eyes this litter will end up having!?
We hope you have a wonderful holiday season and we will see you all in the New Year!
We hope that everyone has been enjoying their summer and staying safe out there!
CATS has been working hard to find all our foster kittens and cats permanent homes. It seems like just when we are catching our breath, another influx of kittens arrives!
Look at these adorable kittens that were abandoned in a box on a dangerous street in Mexico. We coordinated with our rescue partners across the border for transport to the US, got all of the kittens vetted, and found temporary loving foster homes! I am happy to report that they have all been adopted into their loving forever home!
These kittens all happen to look very similar to each other, but have you ever seen litters where the cats look very different than each other? It is most likely the result of something called superfecundation. Superfecundation occurs when a female mates with two or more males in the same heat cycle meaning that kittens of the same litter don’t always have the same dad!
Thank you again for your continued support! You are the reason we are able to keep doing what we do and are eternally grateful for your generosity!
We are officially in “kitten season”! Kitten season occurs seasonally because the female cat has evolved into a “seasonally polyestrous” creature, meaning she comes into heat only during a particular time of year and during this time she is capable of having multiple pregnancies. What that means for rescue is A LOT of kittens!
Kitten season typically begins in early Spring and persists through the summer months. Peak seasons are February through March and May through June. A female cat will repeatedly come into heat approximately every two weeks throughout the breeding season. A female cat in heat will do whatever it takes to find herself a suitable male, often breeding with multiple males! Have you ever wondered why a litter of kittens can look entirely different? One litter of kittens can have multiple fathers! This is why it is so important to spay and neuter your pets.
All the animals that come through CATS are immediately spayed and neutered, including these two new mothers and all their kittens! These sweet families were rescued after they were abandoned in a vacant house in Mexico. They were fully vetted and when done nursing and big enough, all kittens and moms were vaccinated, spayed and neutered! We are happy to report that all these wonderful cats have been adopted into loving homes.
Cat Adoption Services thanks you for your support and appreciates you helping us to play a small part in the effort to control the cat population and to find loving homes for all our rescue fur babies.
As we enter into the holiday season and the end of 2021, all of us at CATS would like to extend our sincerest thanks for all of the support we have received from you during this past year. With your donations we were able to help so many of our kitties find wonderful loving homes, and for that we are eternally grateful.
Speaking of loving homes, we recently had a wonderful family adopt one of our favorite pairs! Silverbell, 2½, and her daughter Burgundy Rose, 19 months, were just adopted out together at our November adoption event! These girls were abandoned last year at the height of the pandemic. Their old owner lost his business and moved and these two girls were discarded outside of a vacant restaurant.
Initially, both girls were very guarded and our volunteers had to spend a lot of time with them teaching them how to trust again. After 6 months of learning to trust humans again these girls opened themselves up enough to make it out into a center for our adoption event where they were able to find their forever home just in time for the Holidays!
We here at CATS love a happy ending like Silverbell and Burgundy found and your continued support will help us in solidifying many more happy endings in the future.
From all of us at CATS we wish you all Happy Holidays and a joyful New Year. We will see you in 2022!
We hope this newsletter finds everyone happy, healthy and enjoying your summer!
CATS has not slowed down one bit this year with all the cats and kittens we are busy trying to place. The beautiful pair of kittens pictured here were recently rescued off the top of a building in Mexico by local firefighters. We took in the brother and sister, made sure they were healthy and ready for their forever home, and they were both just adopted together by a loving family!
Due to a lack of rescue resources south of the border, we strive to develop as many connections in Mexico as possible to help as many felines as we can. The story of these siblings is a great example of how each and every donation we receive helps us in our mission to find loving homes for cats, no matter their circumstance.
