Rescue cats from being euthanized at local shelter

Kitten Matters

When Max was a tiny kitten, he was adopted from the local kill Animal Shelter by, what he hoped would be, his forever family. Sadly, they returned him back to the Shelter citing that "he bites and scratches".

Max was then labeled as a “biter” and as such, “not adoptable” unless released to a rescue organization.  Unfortunately, this is a high kill shelter and owner surrenders, like Max, are the first to be euthanized.

Kitten play is instinctual; it helps them hone their hunting skills, is a positive way to release negative energy or aggression and strengthens the feline-human bond.  At times kittens’ play can be erratic and sometimes rough, which is why they should be trained to play with age appropriate toys and not with human hands.

Thankfully, some employees at the animal shelter noticed that Max was calm and affectionate at the shelter which says a lot since it is very loud with barking dogs and the constant traffic of people and animals passing through. They asked New Beginnings Cat Rescue if we could take Max and we obliged happily.  Our volunteer showed up to see Max rubbing up against his cage bars and purring – not at all the vicious kitten we expected. 

Thank you for supporting our efforts in rescuing cats and kittens.  We are happy to report Max is doing great.  He is a very friendly, handsome boy.  He is very affectionate and to date has not bitten or scratched anyone.
